True chiropractic care in a principled practice believes that bodily health exists when the body is in a state of wholeness; it understands its own constantly-changing needs, and is able to respond to them on its own. Chiropractic care doesn’t heal injuries; rather, it helps the body to engage its own incredible natural healing abilities through a long-term routine of preventative healthcare maintenance for the nervous system.
Preventative healthcare focuses on your entire nervous system: your brain, spinal cord, and every one of the millions of nerve connections throughout your body. It monitors your entire body and all its needs, to help control and coordinate the necessary responses that allow the body to learn, adapt and constantly maintain its own health and wellness.
Chiropractic can restore your natural healing capability, and provide increased vitality, energy, bodily functions and overall health. If you’re considering a preventative healthcare approach in Urbandale, give us a call and schedule an appointment today.
Preventative Healthcare vs. Sick Care
The common healthcare model in the United States is the sick care model. It only looks at your body after symptoms of illness present, and then considers how best to treat these symptoms. When one considers that there are thousands of syndromes, diseases and health issues out there, this creates an equal number of potential complications and problems with treating sickness.
The preventative healthcare chiropractic model, on the other hand, is entirely natural, non-invasive, doesn’t rely on chemicals, and looks to the root cause of your underlying healthcare issues. At Thrive Family Chiropractic, Dr. Shane Hoffman is focused entirely on correcting spinal subluxations to allow your whole nervous system to communicate better and increase the body’s overall healing abilities. This improves your ability to adapt to stress and a variety of health conditions, and helps to restore you to normal, healthy and optimal function.
