Special interests
Low back pain, headaches, sports injuries, and neck pain are among the neuromusculoskeletal conditions that particularly interest Dr. Rubin. He also embraces the concept of functional medicine, a patient-centered, science-based approach to health care that focuses on the underlying biochemical, physiological, environmental and psychological conditions that affect health and healing.

Dr. Rubin has taken a natural approach to health care since he began practicing chiropractic in 1980. "I focus on functional and integrative medicine," he says. "This approach views the human organism as an intricate and interconnected web of functioning systems rather just a collection of individual symptoms. Many chronic and debilitating conditions have more than one cause and require a treatment approach that addresses all of the pertinent issues to be put into the context of the entire body and ultimately promote greater overall health."

Before he joined American WholeHealth in 1997, Dr. Rubin headed North Loop Chiropractic for 17 years. There he directed a staff of practitioners who offered a wide range of therapies, including chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, rehabilitation and physiotherapy (the use of natural and other forces light, water, heat, ultrasound, electricity, and fresh air to treat a condition or as an adjunct to therapy.)

In addition to being a Clinical Consultant to WholeHealthMD, Dr. Rubin is a chiropractic physician who served as theClinical Director of American WholeHealth's Michigan Avenue Center. In his practice he uses chiropractic manipulative therapy, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, physiotherapy and specific spinal rehabilitation to help patients recover from both acute and recurring health problems. Today he works in the WholeHealth Chicago practice with the center's team of health-care professionals in their interdisciplinary approach to patients' good health.

"I believe the role of a health-care practitioner is to assist the body's natural ability to heal itself," he says.
