The chiropractic approach stresses the importance of the patient’s overall health and uses natural, drugless, nonsurgical health treatments, while relying on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities to promote healing. Doctors of chiropractic also understand that many factors affect health, including nutrition and diet, exercise, rest, environment and heredity. Chiropractors are trained to recommend preventive changes in lifestyle and wellness that will affect those factors.

As people age, they look for therapies that improve the overall quality of life and help maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Routine wellness visits prevent patients from developing a need for acute care treatments. Regular chiropractic care is more cost effective and includes treatment on pain management, as well as nutrition and exercise counseling to keep patients mobile and maintain structural health. Chiropractors can advise patients on everything from proper posture and orthotics to natural vitamins in order to improve wellness and prevent stress the body is exposed to by everyday life.
