More people are seeking unified and holistic care than ever before. Alternative healthcare has become so firmly entrenched in the mainstream that calling it “alternative” can no longer do it justice. “Complimentary” and “integrative” healthcare are the new, and more appropriate, buzzwords of today.
Modern healthcare has now come to realize that poor health does not automatically fall into the realm of pathology, requiring medication and surgery. We have learned over time that illness may also be due simply to a dysfunction of health, and not due to an irreversible pathology. Often, basic health dysfunctions can benefit from therapy geared toward reestablishing health and wellness, without dependency on pharmaceuticals. Complementary healthcare offers the option of regaining health by helping the body heal itself. And that is our emphasis here at Southern Tier Chiropractic.
We address each patient in a holistic, or unified fashion. Utilizing the “total person” concept of health, each person is viewed comprehensively. This allows for a multidimensional method of treatment, providing care for our overall health needs.
Yet, if someone’s health is pathologically injured, unified and holistic chiropractic care can also help provide therapeutic support to that individual, in conjunction with all other physicians involved. Helping someone feel as healthy as possible, even with a pathological condition, can certainly help make their daily routine easier.
