Clinton Chiropractor Talks about Wellness Care

chiropractic care for wellness

Being healthy from a physical perspective and being healthy from a wellness perspective are two separate things. Many world-class athletes look healthy and perform well in their chosen field, but they would fail an overall wellness test that incorporates all the different elements of wellness. Keep reading to discover what a Clinton chiropractor thinks about wellness care.

Your Physical Body

More often than not, when all aspects of your health are not in balance your physical body ends up paying the price. Chronic diseases and chronic pain are a big part of many people’s lives and they don’t always stem from being inactive or having poor nutrition. These elements are definitely important if you wish to keep your physical body fine tuned and working well, but they aren’t the only things.

Emotional Wellness

It’s not uncommon for a Clinton chiropractor to see patients with chronic pain that originates in an emotional trauma. Emotional wellness refers to letting go of past traumas and expressing yourself openly and freely. Pent up emotional baggage has to go somewhere, and a lot of the time it ends up as pain in your back and neck.

Social Wellness

Being socially active and having a network of family and friends to spend time with is another important aspect of total wellness. It’s true that some people are more introverted than others, and may not require the same amount of social stimulation, but everyone needs someone. It’s important to be able to share both the good times and the bad times with other people.

Tying It All Together

When all of these different aspects of wellness are firing on all cylinders and working together in unison, it’s almost impossible not to be healthy. Your Clinton chiropractor treats the whole person and not only the physical ailments that accompany your greater health issues. Chiropractic care focuses on treating the underlying cause of the physical symptoms. Much of the time, this means misaligned spinal vertebrae causing pain in some part of the body, but it can mean other things, too.

As part of a total wellness plan, your Clinton chiropractic team at Alternative Wellness & Chiropractic Center will get to know you as a person to help untangle any wellness elements that may not be working in your favor. Once the cause of your problem is brought out into the open and addressed, you can start working on a solution so the pain will go away.

At Alternative Wellness & Chiropractic Center our team is here to help answer your questions.  Please feel free to contact us today.
