Functional medicine can improve your health and treat many common conditions. At Chiropractic Solutions in Lafayette, IN, we offer functional medicine as part of comprehensive chiropractic care.
What Is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a system that's very different from conventional medicine. Instead of focusing on symptoms, functional medicine seeks to treat the underlying cause of health issues and support your overall health.
Functional medicine sees the patient as an active participant in their health rather than a victim of health issues. This allows you to take control of your well-being. Functional medicine considers all aspects of your health and lifestyle, including physical, mental, and spiritual health, and your lifestyle.
Conditions Treated by a Functional Medicine Chiropractor
Functional medicine can treat many common health issues, including pain, digestive disorders, and chronic conditions.
Conditions treated include:
- Pain in the back, neck, or extremities
- Digestive disorders
- Headaches and migraines
- Sports injuries
- Injuries from work or daily activities
- Muscle tension and stress
Functional Medicine Chiropractic Treatments
At your first appointment, your chiropractor will perform a thorough physical exam. This may include strength testing, range of motion testing, x-rays, and blood tests. The chiropractor will also discuss your medical history, current concerns and symptoms, medications, diet, and lifestyle. Then, they will diagnose and formulate a treatment plan tailored to you and your needs.
Chiropractic adjustment can correct misalignments of the spine and other areas of the body. This can relieve pain, speed healing after an injury, improve nervous system function, and increase blood flow.
Proper alignment also reduces your risk of injury and allows your body to function correctly.
Exercise and Physical Therapy
Movement is essential for your health and well-being. If you have pain or an injury, your chiropractor may show you how to do specific exercises, which you can continue in the comfort of your own home. These exercises can strengthen weak muscles, improve range of motion, and help your body maintain proper alignment.
They may also work with you to create an exercise plan. This can help you meet weight-loss goals, and support your overall health.
Your diet plays a major role in your health. In addition to ensuring your body gets proper nutrition, your chiropractor may recommend a specific diet as part of digestive disorder treatment. If you suffer from chronic pain, they may recommend an anti-inflammatory diet to help your body heal.
