OCALA CHIROPRACTIC AND INJURY
Chiropractic is a form of health care that is drugless, non- invasive, and actively promotes health. Chiropractic supports the concept that the maintenance and proper functioning of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems can provide for better health. When a chiropractor works with a patient, the cause of the patient’s physical problem is addressed and lifestyle factors that may affect the problem (such as diet, posture, exercise, and others) are modified to speed recovery and prevent re-occurrence.
Wellness Care means “optimum health”. This care begins when you make the decision to take responsibility for your own health. Whether you need to correct your diet and weight, become more physically fit and exercise more, control genetic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes or aging disorders or simply want to slow the aging process as much as possible, we can help you achieve your unique needs to experience optimal wellness.
Once you have a consultation and express your unique goals, a program is outlined to help you reach your desired result in the quickest manner possible.
Every treatment at Ocala Chiropractic and Injury begins with setting goals that you would like to achieve. Common treatment goals for patients in wellness care include increasing overall function and promoting wellness. After you set your goals, we educate you in proper biomechanics along with diet and nutrition to facilitate optimum function and promote a long and healthy life
Because wellness care is established once you are free from pain or discomfort, many of the passive modalities such as cryotherapy, traction therapy, electrotherapy, ultrasound, etc., are unnecessary. Therefore, the therapies that we generally employ in this phase of care are limited to chiropractic manipulative therapy along with soft tissue work as clinically indicated. Occasionally, massage, vibration and kinetic therapy will be incorporated into your plan, also, as necessary.
