Our Approach to Improve Health
Richart Chiropractic and Functional Medicine is different. Not merely interested in treating symptoms we seek to find the underlying cause of your health problem and then design an individualized program to help treat the underlying cause. A true partnership exists between the doctor and patient.
It's interesting. No definition of health that we could find describes health as the suppression or absence of symptoms. The World Health Organization (WHO) in the first sentence of their constitution defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well being, not merely the absence of disease and infirmities. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) also use this definition.
Everyone's health is physical, chemical, emotional and environmental. Our treatment plans may include chiropractic care, diagnostic testing and lab tests but may also include recommendations for diet, exercise, yoga, tai chi or meditation.
We use nutritional supplements in the care of some of our patients. They are called "supplements" not "permanents". In chiropractic and functional medicine supplements may be used for brief periods of time to help our patients improve their health but they are not meant to be taken forever.
Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, we emphasize improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and disease in the first place. You don't improve your health by just covering up the symptoms. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of chiropractic and functional medicine. In our office patients feel better because they are better.
For some, Richart Chiropractic and Functional Medicine will take them back to a place that is cozy and familiar, offering chiropractic and functional medicine care that assists in a rediscovery of health and wellness that had been previously known but long lost. For others, the journey may offer a new sense of balance, one never before experienced.
