What is Wellness?

Wellness is “an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as opposed to emphasizing treating diseases.”  Therefore when developing treatment plans for patients, it is imperative to not only treat the symptoms, but fix the underlying problem in an effort to prolong life.

Most of our patients enter our office in the acute phase, which means they are experiencing symptoms to a condition or disease.  Our treatment plans are designed to treat the symptoms in order to give the patient relief.  But during this process chiropractic care gets to the root of the problem and fixes it in order to prolong life.  In a sense chiropractic care is a form of wellness care.

Wellness care in a chiropractic office also goes beyond the standard adjustment and incorporates nutritional advice and at-home rehab exercises.  Any form of treatment that helps prolong life is considered wellness care.
