One of the things that truly sets us apart here at Caring Touch Pain Relief Center is our emphasis on functional medicine. Many people are unfamiliar with that term -- but in our opinion, they should be. Modern medicine spends a great deal of time addressing acute problems instead of helping patients with their "non-urgent" ongoing chronic conditions. We understand that any and every stage of health deserves attention, so we work closely with all of our patients to help them feel better and enjoy healthier lives.
What is functional medicine? It is essentially a partnership between practitioner and patient -- a partnership aimed at examining and, if necessary, adjusting a wide range of factors that go into everyday well being. Quite literally, it is medicine that preserves and improves your body's everyday functionality, including the ability to ward off future acute conditions. Clinics that focus only on the treatment of acute symptoms are missing the larger picture, because many of these symptoms stem from longstanding musculoskeletal, neurological, or hormonal imbalances. Heart failure, for instance, may occur after years of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, poor nutrition, a sedentary lifestyle, a lifetime smoking habit, heavy drinking, or all of the above. Our clinic strives to detect, resolve, and then prevent the underlying problems underlying critical illnesses, in the hopes that those critical illnesses may never occur at all.
The first step in functional medicine is to evaluate your current state of health and get to the root of any chronic conditions you may have. We will discuss your medical history, family health history, symptoms, concerns, eating habits, sleeping habits, daily activity levels, and everything else that plays a role in your ongoing health. Spinal and postural screenings can help us spot any misalignments that may be impairing your nervous system's ability to communicate with the rest of the body. Blood work, nutritional analysis and EKG monitoring allows us to find other potential causes of your condition. Armed with a proper diagnosis, we can then offer natural treatments to help you manage pain and other chronic symptoms with no need for painkillers (which only mask your symptoms instead of genuinely addressing them).
You'll find that we have many services that can facilitate the new you. Regular chiropractic screenings and spinal adjustments can keep your nervous system, bones and muscles in good working order. Massage, acupuncture, physical rehabilitation and other services all work together to reduce stress and strain, improve your range of motion, strengthen your body, and help you avoid many serious but preventable acute illnesses.
