You may know that chiropractors are musculoskeletal system experts. Chiropractic care focuses on spinal manipulations to resolve neuromuscular issues, restore range of motion, eliminate pain, and increase flexibility and coordination.
Dr. Jeremiah Carlson, the chiropractic care expert at Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture, strongly believes in providing chiropractic wellness care. This style of holistic chiropractic care takes all aspects of personal health into consideration when providing treatment.
Components of Chiropractic Wellness Care
Chiropractic adjustments address spinal misalignment and issues. The goal is to restore the spine to its normal state of health by performing controlled adjustments to the joints.
Dr. Carlson believes whole-person health is achieved through a collaboration between the health care provider and the patient. This is common in holistic chiropractic care.
When a patient is experiencing a health challenge, certain adjustments or lifestyle changes are suggested to achieve wellness. Making lifestyle modifications can help reduce recovery time and prevent the health issue from recurring.
Healthy food choices and nutritional supplements when appropriate are important components in overall wellness. At Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture, an individualized nutritional program helps patients return to a state of health and wellness.
Massage therapy offers many benefits for patients experiencing a variety of conditions. Massage therapy is highly effective in providing pain relief. It also helps improve circulation, reduces swelling, and helps improve flexibility and range of motion.
Exercises and stretches can be performed at home by the patient. These exercises help strengthen the body, improve overall health, and support the chiropractic care treatment. The patient is empowered to take an active role in achieving long-term wellness.
Postural and spinal screenings are important for preventative care to address any issues which may affect overall health. Holistic chiropractic care providers often offer screenings in shopping malls, at health fairs, places of work, and other community areas.
How the Whole-Person, Holistic Chiropractic Approach Benefits You
Dr. Jeremiah Carlson refers to his philosophy of patient treatment as a “whole person approach” to wellness and care. Instead of looking at only the pain or symptoms, holistic chiropractic care takes a comprehensive look at your lifestyle, overall fitness and health, external stresses, and also your nutritional habits to help you achieve optimum wellness.
A major principle of holistic chiropractic care is the ability of your body to heal itself without invasive procedures. This can be accomplished through chiropractic adjustments that remove blockages, correct misalignments and enable the nervous system to function properly.
Your holistic chiropractic care provider sees you as a person, not just an illness or problem that needs treatment. There is a genuine partnership with a mutual goal of helping you maximize your health, wellness, and longevity.
