WELLNESS & PREVENTION

Wellness Care – Being Well & Staying Well = Prevention

Health/Wellness seems to be buzz words floating around our society today appearing in the news, sports, politics, and almost anywhere you can imagine, yet many don’t understand the true meaning of these terms. So, what does it mean to be under health/wellness care? Here at ASFCA we truly feel that health/wellness goes far beyond the absence of disease, illness, or other ailments, but rather focuses upon optimal health and function. In fact, the World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” and wellness as “an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful future”. By incorporating the two terms into your daily life, we want you to strive in not merely the absence of pain, but rather living a life to the utmost potential.

With our focus first and foremost is to get you out of pain by treating the cause of your problem. It’s often said, “Well doc, I’m no longer in pain and my back feels way better, so why do I need to keep coming?” One fundamental element is in the understanding that pain is often the first thing to go away and the last thing to show up. That means that before the pain even begins to develop your body is undergoing changes to help compensate for the loss in function especially within the spinal column. It can start as a tight muscle or a quick shooting pain that we tend to neglect and before you know it you have a chronic pain every day. Think of it like this… Ever heard of someone who bent over to merely pick up a pencil or to tie their shoes and then they throw out their back? The first thing they’ll say is, “Well all I did was pick up a pencil”… when in fact it’s more likely from repetitive abnormal movements that have caused the spine to be placed under stressors until finally it can take no more. It wasn’t the weight of the pencil that did the trick, but rather the constant firing of muscles, joints, ligaments, and discs that aren’t working in sync. This is a perfect example of why continued, on-going care to check that the spinal joints are all moving at optimal function is so important.

By having an office that utilizes many approaches such as Chiropractic adjustments, Acupuncture, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and many other techniques we find comfort knowing we can find the right tools to make the treatment plan specific for your needs. But that’s not all. We also may include advanced nutritional support, ergonomic supports such as pillows and braces, therapeutic exercises, custom foot orthotics, and much more to ensure that you’re not just out of pain, but rather living a life full of vitality. We want to inspire you to live to your utmost potential every single day so that you can continue enjoying the things you love the most. Ask your Doctor from ASFCA today for tips for getting started on this road to wellness… you’ll certainly enjoy the journey!
