Chiropractic Wellness

Chiropractic Wellness in Huntington Beach

The definition of health is one that has many people in all avenues of life talking, but it is central to understanding chiropractic wellness care. From what we observe today, health is most often an improperly used term. Many people perceive health as merely just “feeling good without any pain or symptoms”, but people would be very surprised that it is much more than that.

 

What is this word “Health” really about?

Health can ultimately be boiled down to one thing—function. How well you are functioning truly determines how well you are. Health and wellness are much more than just “feeling good”. Health and wellness are about functioning at your best and highest potential! Think about it. When your body is functioning at 100%, you have the ability to adapt to anything that occurs in your environment. This allows you to continuously achieve and maintain optimal health. Illness results from the inability to adapt to stressors (physical, emotional and chemical stressors), which results in decreased function. Often times, these stressors are something we cannot avoid, however, adapting and functioning within those limitations are within your power. In other words, the choice to be healthy or unhealthy is ultimately within your control.

 

Taking a Leap towards HEALTH

Genetics along with bad luck usually get a bad rap in the health care community, but these are not the only factors to blame. Have you ever wondered why when there is a flu outbreak, not everyone gets sick? This is because only those individuals that have lost their ability to adapt become more susceptible to illness. Our innate ability to fight off and adapt to the environment allows us to function at a higher level and deal with the virus without even knowing it.

 

This is where the core of the chiropractic principle differs from any other medical model. We understand and truly believe that one cannot focus on sickness and disease and expect health and wellness to be the outcome. Simply treating the symptoms and not looking at the structure as a whole is a big mistake that is much more common than we think. We believe that the body is a self-healing and self-regulating system that needs no help, just no interference. In our office, we take a broader approach to your health and we see your health as a team effort, with us on your side. We take a look at how you are functioning, rather than just asking about how you are feeling.

First, the chiropractic adjustment removes subluxations, so your body can function optimally. Secondly, we will help you integrate a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition, regular functional movement, and positive thinking. We offer one on one instruction as well as wellness workshops to further your journey into the wellness lifestyle!

 

Benefits of Chiropractic

  • A common reason why people come to our office is because of some sort of pain they are experiencing. People would be pleasantly surprised that Chiropractic addresses back pain and so much more.

 

  • As chiropractors, our job is to detect and correct vertebral subluxations. Subluxations are areas of the spine that are dysfunctional and have negative effects our health and wellbeing because of its influence on the nervous system.  Proper and regular chiropractic care addresses these vertebral subluxations and restores healthy function to the spine, which then allows the nervous system to correctly perceive and then adapt to all the different stressors of everyday life.

 

  • There are 3 main reasons why we acquire subluxations. They are trauma, thoughts, and toxins. Trauma can be thought of, as accidents or falling, but it can also be chronic trauma to the body such as improper posture. Thoughts are also known as stress. People today have huge amounts of stress in their life, which are not properly addressed. Toxins are harmful matter that does not belong in the body. These can come from improper diet and medications.

 

Our mission at Prana Health Chiropractic is to serve as many families through Chiropractic and educate them on the holistic approach to health. To us health isn’t just about feeling well, it’s about moving well, eating well, and thinking well. We believe that there are many aspects to an individual’s health and all of those areas need to be addressed as it pertains to the individual.
