A Holistic Approach to Wellness
Chiropractors can not only ease back and neck pain, but also benefit your overall wellness. Chiropractic care is one of the most popular forms of holistic health treatment.
What is Holistic Healthcare?
Holistic healthcare considers the whole person (mind, body, spirit, and emotions) in the pursuit of wellness and optimal health. A holistic approach focuses on the proper balance in life. When imbalances are present, it can negatively affect one’s overall health.
Holistic health practitioners provide alternative health care options and feel that medication should only be used as a last resort. They recommend lifestyle changes, holistic treatments, and stress reduction techniques over medication. Instead of offering a prescription to treat the symptoms, a holistic health provider will aim to treat the root cause of the symptoms.
Chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, yoga, nutritional guidance, and herbal medicine are all examples of holistic treatments. Practitioners in these fields use various treatment techniques to help their patients take responsibility for their wellness and to achieve optimal health.
The Holistic Benefits of Chiropractic
At Knapp Chiropractic, we recognize that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts. When one part is not working properly, all other parts are also affected by the imbalance.
“Back pain is the most common reason patients seek the expertise of a chiropractor, but chiropractic techniques accomplish far more” (Palmer College of Chiropractic 2018). Chiropractic is a natural treatment method for those who suffer from pain, backaches, and headaches.
Chiropractic can benefit patients with the following acute or chronic issues:
Neck & back pain
Colic and acid reflex
High blood pressure
Chiropractic care can benefit your family every step of your journey – pregnancy, childhood, teenage sport years, and elder years. Instead of expensive medication or surgery, consider chiropractic treatment as a non-invasive, natural treatment alternative.
