Chinese Medicine Adds Unique Element to Florida Chiropractic Clinic
In chiropractic care, there is no exclusion of a treatment initiative if it falls within the confines of alternative medicine, and as long as it is not an invasive or chemical treatment, namely surgery or pharmaceuticals. The nature of chiropractic care goes hand in hand with certain elements of Chinese medicine and more chiropractic professionals nationwide are starting to recognize the benefits of incorporating Chinese medicine into their work.
A small chiropractic clinic in Panama City, Florida called the Calhoun Chiropractic Center has recently expanded its services by adding a specialist in the Chinese medicine discipline to its highly trained staff. The Calhoun Chiropractic Center, headed by Dr. Lisa Calhoun, is not simply going out on a limb and trying to procure more business with the addition of a Chinese medicine specialist to their staff. The practice was established over 18 years ago and it has a long track record of positive turnaround for many of its patients.
Dr. Lisa Calhoun has her first experience with Chinese medicine when she took acupuncture classes in the year 2000. After close encounters with the potential for good that acupuncture has for our bodies, Dr. Calhoun became deeply interested in the discipline as a whole and trying to figure out how to work elements of Chinese medicine into the care pathway for her patients. Years later, she hired a specialist in Dr. Anaya Palay to practice Chinese medicine at her clinic and enforce the natural principles that Chinese medicine has to offer.
Dr. Palay passed on the opportunity to practice after receiving her Master’s degree in Chinese medicine and committed an extra two years of study to receive her doctorate. With expertise in acupuncture and herbal remedy, Dr. Palay is able to take a wholly holistic approach to each individual care scenario and ensure that attention is paid to the individual needs of the patient.
To Dr. Calhoun’s knowledge, the only other practice to offer any sort of Chinese medicine care module is in Destin, Florida. Even in patients who are taking pharmaceutical medications, the herbal remedies of Chinese medicine work cohesively with these medications to offer an additional boost of treatment. Dr. Calhoun is confident that the addition of Dr. Palay to her staff will do wonders for her practice’s ability to increase the wellbeing of all of her patients. With an open mind, other practices across the country can follow in the path of Dr. Calhoun and offer this groundbreaking care module to their patients.
