What is wellness?  And more specifically, what is wellness in conjunction with chiropractic care?  Chiropractors recognize the body’s ability to heal itself and help patients improve the function of their bodies through proper nutrition, exercise, and chiropractic treatment.

The answer to the second question can be answered through these 4 facts about chiropractic care and wellness.

4)  Symptoms, such as headaches or back pain, are not the problem, but the body’s way of alerting us to an underlying cause or issue.  If only the symptoms are treated and eliminated, then the initial cause of those symptoms is still at large.

3)  Our bodies are designed to restore and heal on their own, but will respond and react to outside factors.  If these factors become too much, our bodies start to show signs of wear as they try to maintain balance.

2)  Chiropractic and wellness care is focused on improving function instead of hiding symptoms.  This means that by treating the spine with chiropractic care, we allow the body to function at maximum efficiency.

1)  Chiropractors are health care professionals that treat based on the value of preventative care versus symptom-based care.  By receiving regular chiropractic adjustments, a patient’s spinal health is maintained which allows for the body to function at its best.

Chiropractic care is used to treat a variety of conditions, and can eliminate the need for prescription medication or invasive surgery.  Understanding wellness care can help improve your body’s function and allow you to live a more enjoyable life.
