     There is a growing interest in th 21st century in the “holistic” approach to health and fitness, sometimes referred to as “positive wellness.”  This is the idea that whether preventing disease or treating it, one must consider the whole human organism rather than the disease and its symptoms.

     Chiropractic has had that approach since its inception.  Environment, diet, rest, exercise, and absence of tension are all things that keep a person healthy.  When something goes wrong, chiropractors approach treatment by way of the whole body.  By returning the body and its nervous system to proper alignment, we enable it to cope with many diseases.

     Patients are encouraged to participate actively in the treatment program prescribed with exercises.  The chiropractic profession believes that it is just as important to teach the patient what to do for his or her self as it is to do for the patient.

No individuals, including those under our active care, should use the information, resources or tools contained within to self-diagnose or self-treat any health-related condition. Diagnosis and treatment of all health conditions should only be performed by the doctor or other licensed health care professional.
