Chiropractic Wellness

At Hart Family Chiropractic, we know you can’t medicate yourself to good health. Our holistic approach reduces the need for potentially addictive (and decidedly unnatural) medications or invasive surgery. Instead, we aim to help you towards chiropractic wellness with things like nutrition advice, exercise recommendations, ergonomic and lifestyle counseling, and more.

 

Partnering with chiropractic professionals to address general wellness issues such as mental health, nutrition, and exercise is a holistic, natural, and non invasive approach to health care that is time-tested and highly effective.

  • Mental Health

    Emotional and psychological health are controlled through the nervous system, and thus directly affected by chiropractic.


  • Ergonomic Counseling

    Our effective wellness program includes education on ergonomics and body mechanics, recommended exercises, and posture correction.

  • Nutrition

    Nutrition counseling goes hand in hand with chiropractic as a valuable tool for caring for the whole person and keeping you free from chronic disease.

Mental Health

Chiropractic and Mental Health

Medicine in America

It’s no secret that America is over-medicated. Many americans are entirely too reliant on traditional health care approaches to “fix” health problems rather than modifying behaviors to promote good health and prevent chronic illness and disease. The treatment of mental health issues in this country is a classic example of traditional medical doctors over-prescribing questionable medications for a problems that chiropractic has been shown to effectively address.

 

Chiropractors often see patients suffering from anxiety, depression, addiction, ADD, ADHD, and autism. We provide care for these patients because such “disorders” are the result of a dysfunctioning nervous system. Because chiropractors seek out the obstructions in the human nervous system and free the blockages to increased energy flow, we are well-suited to care for those suffering from these mental “disorders.”

 

Mental health disorders plague not only the mind, but the physical body as well. They can ignite many body related discomforts, ailments, and issues and have been shown to be related to ailments in the back, legs, neck, and joints.

 

We have seen patients come to the office after experiencing prolonged or chronic pain who have become depressed and irritable, or who medicate themselves to the point of decreasing their social and physical activity. These patients may experience a lowered pain threshold, have problems sleeping, and generally experience a low quality of life. Hart Family Chiropractic is here to offer your body relief, thus helping you to manage your life challenges.

A chiropractic approach to mental health is effective because it is focused on the nervous system and energy flow throughout the body. A healthy spine and nervous system keep your flow of energy balanced and your mind-body connection strong and healthy. An unhealthy, unbalanced spine can interfere with the natural flow of energy through your body, creating blockages and imbalances that can cause physical and mental ailments.

 

When a chiropractor corrects a mechanical distortion in your body with a chiropractic spinal adjustment, nerve system energy is normalized. In effect, chiropractic care heals the connection between your physical body and your energy body so that they can communicate better with one another and restore harmony to your “body-mind”. This harmony is essential to mental health.

 

All your body systems run on energy and, when properly working, give you an abundance of the energy and life with which you are naturally endowed. There is energy within you all the time. Unfortunately, it can get blocked, unbalanced and congested. If you are fatigued, bored, tired, depressed or suffering some other mental “disorder” that traditional doctors would otherwise medicate you for, investigate the natural health approach of chiropractic.

At Hart Family Chiropractic, we believe that the human body does not require prescription medications to treat its ailments. With chiropractic care combined with exercise and good nutrition, your body can function exactly as it was designed to do.

Ergonomic Counseling

Ergonomic Counseling

Good posture is important and has many benefits for your overall health. Unfortunately, the way that many of us sit at work, in the car, on the couch, and even the way we sleep can negatively affect our quality of life and overall health. Posture can have an impact on everything from bodily aches and pains to anxiety and stress level. Working with a chiropractor to understand the benefits of good posture and how to improve upon and maintain good ergonomic habits will help increase your overall health and quality of life.

Research has shown that the slouched position required to view a computer screen can cause breathing problems, back and neck pain, lower jaw pain, fatigue, and headaches. Correct seated posture is key to preventing these health problems and feeling better.

Nutrition

Nutrition Counseling

Processed foods are often filled with chemicals and preservatives that give them flavor and a long shelf life. These chemicals can build up, causing our body to become sluggish and even toxic. Eating processed foods starves the body of nutrients, which is why people who eat primarily processed foods are always hungry.

 

As a wellness practice, we encourage educated eating as a way to avoid chronic illness and disease. We teach the principles of whole-food nutrition so you can enjoy more energy, manage your weight, and be your best. Most of our recommendations can be accomplished with simple changes to food choices and more water.
