what-does-holistic-mean.jpg

April 12, 2024 Chiropractic Care

Holistic medicine is a term that most people have heard of but probably don’t have a great understanding of exactly what it is. Is it like conventional medical treatment? Are there different types of holistic medicine? 

So what is holistic medicine?

Holistic care is neither of those things.

At its core, holistic medicine is about treating all aspects of the individual, not just the physical health or parts that are hurting or injured. Those who practice holistic care believe that if you treat the whole person and  focus on healing all aspects of an individual—their body, mind, and soul—can you truly be happy and healthy.

How does a holistic approach work in the practice of chiropractic care? Let’s take a look.

If you want to retain the use of your joints, regular use is the key. (As the saying goes, “use it or lose it!”) In this article, we’ll talk about how to strengthen your joints so you can experience painless, fluid movement as long as possible.
