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.”
A wellness approach to health means adopting a variety of healthy lifestyle habits for optimum function on all levels – physical, mental, social, and spiritual.
Chiropractic care can be an important part of a wellness lifestyle due to its focus on the nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for our ability to adapt to internal and external environments and controls the function of our tissues, organs and glands.
Just as it is recommended to brush and floss teeth to maintain dental health, wellness Chiropractic care can maintain spine and nervous system health. Spinal maintenance can play a significant role in optimal daily performance and injury prevention even in the absence of symptoms or obvious dysfunction.
