Wellness: The Chiropractic Connection
By Sara Butler
You probably hear the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic talk about the idea of wellness a lot, but most people aren't really clear on what wellness is. To be fair, the concept of wellness isn't something talked about a lot -- though it should be. Here's what you need to know about wellness and how the chiropractors at The Joint can help you to find your best health and wellness.
What is Wellness?
According to the World Health Organization, wellness is a state of total mental, physical and social health. It's not just the absence of illness, but the presence of well-being in your life as a whole. When you have a focus on wellness in your life, you make a conscious effort to achieving your full potential -- in all areas of your life.
These are the same ideas that the chiropractors at The Joint operate from to help you reach your health and wellness goals.

The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want their patients to understand that wellness isn't simply the absence of symptoms, pain, or disease. When you truly have wellness, then the social, mental, and physical areas of your life are all thriving. In balancing these aspects of your life, can truly find a way to full wellness.
The chiropractors at The Joint focus on the health of your central nervous system in order to help you achieve balance in the physical and mental aspects of your life.

The chiropractors at The Joint know that true wellness is only possible when you have an optimally functioning central nervous system.
Other Aspects of Wellness
There are more than physical aspects of wellness to address. You must also make sure you are working toward better wellness in these areas:
- Emotional wellness - Do you cope with your feelings in a healthy way and work to reduce stress in your daily life?
- Environmental wellness - Are you in a healthy environment free from things that can make you ill?
