At the core of any healthcare field is an underlying philosophy that guides its principles and the application of treatment, lets look at the differences between the traditional medical model and our approach:
The medical approach to treatment has two major components:
Most of these healthcare providers have a specific symptom such as pain, stiffness, etc.
To see some of the limitations of the symptom-based view, we will examine the basis of our philosophy at Family Wellness:
This holistic view of health leads to what is known as a cause-based philosophy. Instead of just treating symptoms, we focus on fixing what is not working properly in the body (the cause of symptoms). It should also be noted that cause-based physicians also have as an overall view that the body's normal state is one of maximal health, not just the absence of sickness.
Our body's many systems are continuously monitored and controlled by the most important and complex part of your body, the brain. The vital link in this communication between body and brain is the spine (which is really an extension of the brain), exchanging millions of messages every second with each part of our bodies.
Interference with this information transmission affects our brain's ability to "see" what is going on with our bodies and control it's responses. A condition known as the vertebral subluxation complex (simply referred to as "subluxation") is a common source of interference in the spine and can inhibit the communication that life depens upon.
As chiropractors we specialize in the detection and removal of spinal subluxation to optimize the connection between brain and body, helping us to achieve our physical potentials and return us to the health that we were designed to have. With this reduction in nerve interference and a return to health, our bodies can heal more quickly from injuries and help prevent new ones.
