The purpose of the Chiropractic approach to health care (the wellness model) is to uncover the cause of your health condition, not merely cover up your symptoms. The absence of symptoms (eg. pain) does not equal good health!
A good number of people believe health is all about feeling ‘good’ and follow the traditional ‘health-care’ model of removing pain and symptoms. At specific chiropractic your optimal health is our goal! We recognise that symptoms are simply an expression of your body’s attempt to deal with a particular stress and aim to find the cause of those symptoms. The clearest way to illustrate this is by reviewing the statistics on heart attacks. Research reveals that in approximately 33% of all heart attacks the first symptom of the attack is death!
Wellness care encompasses several aspects of overall health, which can be physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It’s about health & optimal body performance!
Our goal is to locate and correct subluxations thereby enabling your body to be better able to deal with the stresses of daily life, and heal naturally.
The widespread use of pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication to mask pain and other symptoms is worrying. It puts the individual at further risk by eliminating one of the bodies most important defence mechanisms - pain!
It is this conditioned social belief that, in part, is costing us our well-being!
