Advantages of Chiropractic

When the body heals and maintains itself well, there is another level of health that goes beyond asymptomatic or pain-free which reveals an opportunity for vitality. Contact Byrnes Chiropractic Clinic to reap benefits such as this for yourself. 

Wellness Care and Standard Medical Care

What’s the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care? 

Wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability, not by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that might interfere with normal function, trusting that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it. 

Standard medical care, on the other hand, seeks to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside – such as a medication, a surgery, or another procedure.

Standard Medical Approach

If a patient has high blood pressure, a standard medical approach would be to prescribe a drug that lowers blood pressure. This may serve to lower the blood pressure if the patient takes the medication, but it ignores the underlying cause that’s making the blood pressure high. It also runs the risk of side effects complicating the patient’s recovery. 

Whether it’s a nutritional issue, faulty control by the nerve system, or a manifestation of stress, the medication could decrease the blood pressure, leaving the problem causing the high blood pressure unaddressed.

A Wellness Approach

Wellness is a state of optimal conditions for normal function. The wellness approach looks for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments would optimize the conditions for normal function.
 
That environment encourages natural healing and minimizes the need for invasive treatment which should be administered only when absolutely necessary. When the body is working properly, it tends to heal effectively, no matter what the condition.

When the body heals and maintains itself well, there is another level of health that goes beyond asymptomatic or pain-free that reveals an open-ended opportunity for vitality, vibrant health, and an enhanced experience of life. This is true for mental and emotional health as well as physical health. 

While some people may suffer psychological disorders, creating an atmosphere of mental and emotional wellness will address all but the most serious problems.

I am happy I was referred to Dr. Byrnes! I had been to several other chiropractors with no relief. I was in a car accident, so after several years it has been a true relief to have such a good experience. The staff is wonderful!
