Most patients wait until they are experiencing pain to visit a chiropractor. But did you know that chiropractic care’s holistic, conservative health principles might actually be able to help you prevent pain and health problems in the first place?
Learn How Chiropractic Care is Different
Chiropractic care principles empower our chiropractor to treat the root causes for health conditions rather than simply “covering up” symptoms with medication. Our holistic approach to treatment integrates patient health, lifestyle, and diet to support whole body health from the inside out. Here are three ways that chiropractic care is beneficial to patient health:
#1: We treat the underlying causes for pain and illness – not just the symptoms.
If you visit a doctor complaining about chronic back pain, there’s a good chance you’ll leave with a prescription for painkillers or, in more serious cases, a recommendation for back surgery. While prescription painkillers do provide some pain relief, once the medication wears off, the pain will return. This superficial approach to treating pain focuses only on the symptoms, not the underlying cause. Chiropractic care is different. Using time-honored methods, including consultation, case history, physical examinations and X-rays, our chiropractor will identify the underlying trigger for your pain and create a custom treatment plan to address the root problem.
#2: We treat the whole patient – not just an isolated problem.
Chiropractic health focuses on helping you maintain your health so you can naturally help your body resist disease and illness. This is achieved through our whole body approach to care. Since the spine is the body’s foundation, we start with a focus on proper spinal alignment. Next, we integrate complementary treatments to support your body’s entire health, including good nutrition.
#3: Our treatments enhance wellness.
Chiropractors understand that many different factors affect your body’s overall health. These factors include exercise, environment, sleep, and nutrition, as well as hereditary factors. Chiropractic care is a whole body approach to health that integrates these different factors to enhance your well being.
