Holistic healthcare, (also known as natural, alternative, complementary or integrative health care), is emerging as an important component of standard medicine. As well, more and more studies over the years now confirm the benefits of Chiropractic integrative healthcare for mainstream America.
Here at Southern Tier Chiropractic in Jamestown, we offer a combined therapy of Chiropractic and Kinesiology as an innovative approach in holistic healthcare. Dr. Hanson’s background includes years of education, training, and experience in Chiropractic and Kinesiology to provide you with in-depth holistic and natural care. By using this unified form of therapy we provide supportive healthcare for a whole variety of ailments, including acute pain, chronic ailments, sports injuries, and inflammatory conditions like headaches, sinusitis, allergies and more.
This type of unified health care specifically addresses that difficult “gray-area” of ill health, better known as dysfunctional health. This is when someone feels poorly, but specific studies such as blood lab work and x-ray exams can’t always pinpoint a cause. And without a specific pathological cause, it is difficult to try to intercede with medicine or surgery. This is that gray zone where a muscle, joint, organ or nerve simply isn’t working as it should, but hasn’t yet reached the stage of being irreparably, or pathologically damaged. More and more people are now discovering that Chiropractic holistic care is filling that nitch for their health care needs.
Chiropractic unified health care, especially when combined with Kinesiology, can best be explained as the total-person concept of health. The total person concept of health incorporates one’s total well being as a solid basis for healing. This includes all aspects of one’s daily life as part of the partnership between the chiropractor and the patient. Helping each person learn more about what he or she can do to help their own health is emphasized in this type of healthcare.
Stress, for example, is cumulative and comes at us in a myriad of ways. The main types of stress are emotional, physical, environmental, dietary, temperature and chemical stress. In general, most of us strive to take care of ourselves. But periodically even innocuous stressors can trigger an adverse reaction. Wheat, milk, grass, sitting on a lopsided chair all day, difficulty in school, hereditary factors, infections, old injuries seemingly healed, all can cause a cascade effect toward poor health. The holistic care of Chiropractic and Kinesiology can support each person with their recuperation in a teamwork fashion. Treatment can include chiropractic manipulation, cranial-sacral technique, soft tissue techniques, reflexology, acupressure, exercise, nutrition and dietary management.
Over the years, unified and holistic healthcare has shown its value to mainstream America. If you find yourself or a loved one with a nagging, long-term ailment, or a pain that should fade away but hangs on, you could be a candidate for Chiropractic-plus-Kinesiology holistic healthcare.
