Schaffnit Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
Dr. Blake Schaffnit, D.C., C.C.S.P.®
Dr. Schaffnit is happy to call Glen Ellyn home and has for the past 15 years. He graduated high school from Glenbard South and studied Kinesiology at Illinois State University. Dr. Schaffnit did his post graduate studies at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO. Here he studied chiropractic techniques and worked with many leading professionals in the profession. He was fortunate enough to work for the Chiropractor for the St. Louis Rams and Blues where he saw firsthand the importance of chiropractic and injury rehabilitation. Dr. Schaffnit is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physcian, through the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP). The focus of chiropractic sports specialists is to provide care in the conservative management, rehabilitation and performance optimization of neuromusculoskeletal system for athletic populations and to participate in a multi-disciplinary sports injury care environment.
Previously, Dr. Schaffnit worked at a clinic in Romeoville, IL where the practice saw many people of retirement age. This gave him experience dealing with many injuries that have been chronically painful and non responsive to traditional approaches. Pain relief was a major focus of these patients, which was achieved through advanced physical medicine protocols.
Currently Dr. Schaffnit is the owner of Schaffnit Chiropractic and Rehabilitation and promotes health and wellness throughout the greater DuPage area. He enjoys working with everyone from young athletes to individuals who seek to improve their health and wellness. The doctor has seen successful results with pain relief for his patients, but stresses the importance of wellness and taking care of your body. His strong belief in wellness shows in his patients by not only meeting short-term pain relief goals with them but long term improvements in daily living.
He specializes in acute and chronic injuries, rehabilitative exercises, Soft tissue injuries, whiplash treatment, and setting wellness goals. This is done with proven techniques such as chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, massage therapy, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, and Active Release Technique (a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves).
Dr. Schaffnit believes that direct one on one patient contact is very critical in patient care. This is why he personally works with all his patients from initial exam, through the rehabilitation process, and finally to the completion of care:
"Individualize care is the cornerstone of my belief because no two problems are identical and thus no two treatment plans are the same."
