Chiropractic Wellness in Marquette

An accurate definition of Health is central to understanding chiropractic wellness care. In our society today, Health is often an improperly used term. Many people perceive health as “feeling good, without any pain and symptoms”; but it is much more than that.

What “Health” is Really About

Health is really about one thing – function. How well you are functioning determines how well you truly are. Health and wellness is about more than just ” feeling good”; it is about functioning at your ultimate potential. When your body is functioning at 100%, you have the innate ability to adapt to anything that occurs in your environment and you can continually maintain optimal health.

Ill health results from from an inability to adapt to stressors (i.e. a weakened immune system, stress, etc.) and the result is decreased functionality. Events like car accidents and physical traumas are often out of your control, but how you are functioning and adapting to your environment on a daily basis is completely within your power. Therefore, the choice to be healthy or unhealthy is ultimately under your control.

Genetics, bad luck and bad germs are not to be blamed, and are often used an excuse in the health care community. Have you ever wondered why when there is a “flu outbreak” not everyone gets sick? It is because only those who have lost the ability to adapt are susceptible to illness. Those of us who are functioning at a higher level deal with the virus without even knowing about it.

This is where chiropractic is different. We understand that you cannot focus on sickness and disease and expect health and wellness to prevail. Merely treating symptoms and refusing to look at the body in its entirety as a self-healing, self-regulating-system is a harmful mistake that is all too common. In our office, we take a broader approach to your health, and look at how you are functioning rather than just asking how you are feeling.
