There are many connections between chiropractic treatment and chronic disease, and St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center is highly experienced at using chiropractic care as an effective means of treating chronic conditions. In fact, chiropractic and functional medicine are often even better suited for responding to and treating chronic illness than modern medicine that focuses on providing acute care.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Treatment of Chronic Disease
Routine medical care can often fall short in the realm of treating chronic disease. That is, in part, because applying acute care strategies to diseases and conditions that are chronic in nature cannot get to the root causes of the diseases and conditions.
Because our medical center is built on a different foundation—one that supports the notion that chronic diseases like arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes (to name just a few) require an approach more comprehensive than a prescription for the newest drug—we are able to work with you to get to the root of the problem.Many drugs that are prescribed to people with chronic disease treat symptoms, not causes. But St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center seeks to address the underlying causes so that long-term relief can be experienced.
You may wonder how chiropractic care can help with a condition like heart disease or diabetes. It may be that you do not yet have the benefit of knowing that chiropractic care goes beyond a single chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustment can actually be an important component in treating chronic issues like heart disease and diabetes, but it would likely be used in combination with other forms of chiropractic care. Traditional chiropractic care is one important component in a comprehensive natural medicine palette that we offer. Our team also uses massage therapy, exercise and rehabilitation therapy, and even weight loss and nutrition to help battle your chronic illness.
Natural Approach to Health Care can address the Root of the Illness
To treat chronic illness, we will assess factors affecting your health, such as your nutrition, the kind of stress you may be under, whether or not you are exposed to toxins in your home and work environments, and your family history. And we will work with you to identify the best ways to address the unique combination of factors contributing to your chronic illness. Nutritional changes, exercise, and managing your stress are common ways we help you address your chronic illness. Chiropractic adjustments can be an important complement to those components in that it not only realigns your spine, it strengthens your immune system, which further empowers your body to begin healing itself.
