What is Chiropractic Wellness?

By Sara Butler

Many people understand health from a physical standpoint, but lack understanding of health from a wellness viewpoint. Chiropractors want to help you achieve optimal health on both a physical and wellness level. But if you’re going to understand what wellness really is, you need to know what the chiropractors at The Joint think about it!

The Physical Body

When every aspect of your physical health isn’t in balance, then your body pays the price. Chronic pain and chronic disease are something many people deal with and it’s assumed they’re the result of poor nutrition or inactivity. While those things can and do impact the physical body and keep it from working optimally, there are other elements that can impede your health.

Social Wellness

Having a support system of friends and family you can depend on, as well as being socially active with, is a vital aspect of your overall wellness. Some people may be less social than other people and simply don’t require a great deal of social stimulus, but everyone needs a little. You need people around you to share in your victories and help you through your defeats. There’s no substitute for a support system of people who are close to you.

Emotional Wellness

It’s not uncommon for the chiropractors at The Joint to see patients with chronic health issues that have their roots in emotional trauma. Emotional wellness is a term you may hear often and it’s the ability you have to let go of traumas from the past and express yourself freely and openly about them. When you keep emotions pent up, the baggage must go somewhere -- and most the time it ends up in your back and neck as pain.

What It All Means

When all of these facets of wellness are put together and working well, you’re close to optimal health. Chiropractors at The Joint treat the entire person and see beyond the physical issues that may get you on their treatment table in the first place. Chiropractic care focuses on treating the root cause of your physical symptoms, then finding and repairing joint dysfunction and restriction; however, it also helps you recognize the ways other aspects of wellness may be impacting your overall health and wellness as a means of helping your get your body to optimal form.

Let the chiropractors at The Joint address you as a whole person and discover how good you can feel!
