Nutrition & Wellness Care Q & A
How does nutrition factor into chiropractic care?
One of the hallmarks of chiropractic science is the belief that human health and wellness depends on numerous factors and the importance of addressing the whole body. Chiropractors who are focused on health rather than just symptoms treat patients by looking beyond simple physiological problems to incorporate many different aspects of the patient’s lifestyle. Nutrition plays a critical role in attaining and maintaining optimal health and wellness. As such, many chiropractors offer comprehensive nutrition services, including counseling, dietary evaluations, and education efforts aimed at empowering patients to take control of their health by improving their diet.
What is meant by the term wellness?
Many people believe that wellness simply means an absence of injury or illness. True health and wellness go far beyond simply treating disease or eliminating pain. Wellness incorporates an individual’s physical, emotional, environmental, spiritual and occupational health. It is our belief that a fully functioning individual requires a balance among all elements in their life. We are committed to promoting wellness by addressing imbalances within the body, which in turn serves to maximize health and allow individuals to enjoy their lives to the fullest.
Can spinal adjustments have benefits beyond treating injuries?
Research has shown that spinal adjustments conducted by a trained chiropractor can have a number of positive outcomes. In addition to treating the symptoms of physiological illness or injury, spinal adjustments can improve the overall health of the central nervous system. Many of our patients who seek chiropractic care in the absence of pain or bodily malfunction, report improvements in their overall health and wellness. This includes noticeable improvements in breathing, digestion, and mental clarity. In fact, many consider chiropractic services as an essential component of maintaining optimal health, just like exercising, eating healthy and taking the time to relax and recharge.
