“The Doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”. THOMAS EDISON (1847-1931).
If an insightful man like Thomas Edison could recognize this approximately 100 years ago, then is it that difficult to visualize the modern wellness movement and why the more educated health care consumers today use these very concepts not only to feel better, but to actually be better, healthier, and have a more satisfying daily experience in this journey we call LIFE. Wellness then, is not merely the absence of disease, it is existing in a state of balance where our body systems are functioning ideally and the immune system can ward off infections and our nervous systems integrate all of our thoughts, actions, and movements. It is, in essence, being whole and dis-ease is removal from that state of being whole. So, the role of Chiropractic is obvious in the care of the human frame and in proper spine mechanics allowing the nervous system ideal function but also plays a role in good nutrition and certainly in educating patients in the cause and prevention of disease.
Our philosophy is that a functional medicine approach leads to avoiding pain and injury, improving performance physically and mentally, and also in optimizing health and minimizing both symptoms and diseases. In our approach, we will use gentle spinal manipulation with soft tissue mobilization and, when indicated, all forms of physiotherapy modalities to treat all types of neuromusculoskeletal conditions with a proven track record that alleviating the pain is only “the tip of the iceberg” in terms of the benefits derived. Over the last few decades, it has been our experience that for so very many patients who seek chiropractic care for relief of pain that this type of wellness care has not only been the healing ground bringing smiles to the faces of many patients suffering from minor stiffness to major aches and pains but so many realized that suddenly they no longer had that chronic gastrointestinal problem, that their blood pressure had improved, that they were breathing better, enjoying a long walk for the first time in years or that their golf game had suddenly improved!
Our chiropractic/physiotherapy approach seeks that immediate pain relief and then stabilizing the underlying cause which often leads to an overall healthier, more productive and more satisfying daily existence.
