Healing with Functional Medicine
When you visit the DuPage Health & Wellness Center in Glen Ellyn, IL, we offer holistic treatment solutions that assist with your health goals. By using functional medicine, we encourage the healing process after an injury and we ensure that you have the tools to address your needs and keep up with changing goals.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine refers to a type of holistic treatment strategy that addresses the underlying causes of sicknesses, pain or general discomforts. At the DuPage Health & Wellness Center, we use functional medicine to encourage a healthy lifestyle and address your concerns about a chronic condition, consistent pain or any health concerns that you want to address with natural solutions.
Essentially, the program takes a whole person approach to healing by focusing on the needs of the individual rather than the symptoms that you face from a medical condition or an injury. It is sometimes called a holistic approach to recovery and it uses multiple tools to assist with your goals and situation.
What to Expect at Our Clinic
When you visit our Glen Ellyn, IL clinic, we ask standard questions regarding your health and situation. We always make sure that we know your goals, why you are visiting and your medical history so that we develop an appropriate treatment plan for your situation.
Since we use a holistic strategy to encourage healing and recovery from injuries, we evaluate the way that you move and make sure that we have an understanding of your concerns before developing a treatment plan. A chiropractor considers your ability to move easily and uses appropriate tests based on the symptoms and discomforts you describe. We then develop a long-term plan of action that incorporates chiropractic care, appropriate exercises and nutritional plans so that you heal through natural strategies. In certain situations, we also recommend massage therapy to handle soft tissue injuries, strains and sprains that occur in accidents.
How a Chiropractor Helps
A chiropractor at our clinic helps you reach your goals in very specific ways. First, chiropractic professionals evaluate your situation and determine the underlying causes of your pain and discomfort. After recognizing the problem, our team creates a personalized plan of action so that you get the right tools to address your needs.
We also educate every individual about appropriate exercises and nutrition based on the situation and the underlying causes of your pain. We teach appropriate stretches and exercises that strengthen your muscles and limit risks to your joints and spine. By working with a chiropractor, your body heals without taking harsh medicines or using invasive treatments.
The process of healing takes time, but using a holistic approach ensures that you have the appropriate tools to maintain the health of your body. At our clinic, we take the steps to identify the causes and then treat the cause so that you heal. To learn more about holistic treatment strategies we use, contact us today.
