Facts Regarding Wellness And Chiropractic Care

In medicine, there are different ways to treat a patient. Some go for surgery and this is usually the case when the patient’s problem cannot be resolved by other means. Surgery is the last resort with any injury or chronic pain. Some go for physical therapy while others prefer the chiropractic treatment. Many people use chiropractic services on a daily bases. Though, how many people understand the theory scientific explanation behind chiropractic treatment? The philosophy in chiropractic care is that our body naturally has the power to heal. It is also said that so do our organs but it does take a while and with knowledge we know that our body can really heal itself. It is the human spine that forms the foundation of our body and when it’s in the right position and there are no hindrances to it, we are at our best shape both in mind and body.  The goal of chiropractic treatment is to achieve healing by regulating and maintaining a stable condition for our body.

What’s The Difference Between Wellness Care And Standard Medical Care?

The main difference between wellness care and standard medical care is that wellness care seeks to turn on our body’s natural healing ability. Instead wellness care removes anything that might interfere with our normal functions. It trusts that the body would know what to do if nothing interfering with it.

Wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability, not by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that might interfere with normal function trusting that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it. Standard medical care, on the other hand, seeks to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside-a medication, a surgery or procedure.

The Medical Approach

If a patient has high blood pressure, a standard medical approach would be to choose a drug that lowers blood pressure, and ask the patient to take the drug. This may serve to lower the blood pressure, but ignores the underlying cause that is making the blood pressure high, and runs the risk of side effects complicating the person’s recovery. Whether it’s a nutritional issue, faulty control by the nerve system or a manifestation of stress, the medication could decrease the blood pressure, leaving the problem causing this system of high blood pressure unaddressed.

The Wellness Approach

Wellness is a state of optimal conditions for normal functions. The wellness approach is to look for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments would optimize the conditions for normal function. This environment encourages natural healing, and minimizes the need for invasive treatment.

When the body is working properly, it tends to heal effectively, no matter what the condition may be. When the body heals well and maintains itself well, there is another level of health to enjoy which goes beyond “asymptomatic” or “pain-free!
