Functional Medicine Chiropractics

A Two-Step Approach to Wellness


The connection between chiropractics and functional medicine is closer than you would think. Both disciplines are complementary approaches to healthcare that focus on the root causes of health. This is in constrast of traditional medicine, which aims to just treat symptoms. Both chiropractics and functional medicine aim to help the body heal itself naturally, without the need for drugs or surgery.


Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, which controls every function in the body. Misalignments in the spine, known as subluxations, can interfere with nerve impulses. This can cause a wide range of health problems. Dr. Rudack use spinal adjustments to correct these subluxations and restore proper nerve function.


Understanding the Causes of Disease


Functional medicine, on the other hand, takes a holistic approach to healthcare by addressing the underlying causes of disease. This approach looks at the interactions between the body’s systems, including the immune, digestive, and hormonal systems, to identify imbalances and dysfunctions. By addressing these underlying issues, Dr. Rudack can help patients achieve optimal health and prevent chronic disease.


The relationship between chiropractic care and functional medicine is a natural one, as both approaches focus on restoring the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractic adjustments can help improve nerve function and restore proper communication between the body’s systems. This can help improve the effectiveness of functional medicine treatments by allowing the body to better absorb and utilize nutrients and other therapies.


What Can it Treat?


In addition, chiropractic care can help address musculoskeletal issues that may be contributing to chronic pain and inflammation. By addressing these issues, chiropractic care can help improve the effectiveness of functional medicine treatments for a wide range of conditions, including autoimmune disorders, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, and more.


Overall, the combination of chiropractic care and functional medicine can provide a powerful approach to healthcare that addresses the root causes of health issues. Thus, optimal wellness can be achieved. Here at Total Body Wellness, we can help patients achieve their health goals and live their best lives.
