Paul Rubin :: Chiropractic Medicine


Dr. Rubin is a unique chiropractic physician in that he practices as a primary care physician using a functional medicine approach with his patients. Functional medicine is a way of thinking about disease based on how all the body’s systems work together. It is a more individualized method that helps doctors find the cause and understand the mechanism of a condition instead of just treating symptoms while the underlying disease process continues.

Along with Dr. Edelberg, Dr. Rubin started WholeHealth Chicago in 2001 as a center for integrative medicine, a specialty combining conventional medicine with alternative therapies. He is a Diplomate of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and is certified to practice acupuncture and physical therapy. Dr. Rubin teaches the fundamentals of chiropractic and functional medicine to University of Chicago internal medicine residents who rotate through WholeHealth Chicago for their alternative medicine experience.

“I’ve taken a natural approach to restoring health since I began my practice in 1981, focusing on functional integrity, which allows the body to move more easily toward balance, enhanced health, and successful aging. I view the role of a health care provider as assisting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.”
