Meehan Chiropractic and Wellness in Charlotte NC, Offers Functional Medicine Options
Most medicine focuses on symptoms. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring function - and Meehan offers help to restore function and achieve wellness.
Meehan Chiropractic and Wellness is an upper cervical chiropractor Charlotte who offers Functional Medicine.
Functional Medicine is a toolkit of patient-centered options that, as the name suggests, are designed to restore and improve function rather than resolving symptoms. The idea is that the named disease - fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc - is only symptomatic of a deeper imbalance which might be caused by everything from food sensitivities to hormonal imbalances to structural imbalances.
Because it reaches down into the underlying causes and is personalized to each patient, Functional Medicine addresses the most common problem - which is medical care masking symptoms while the disease itself rages unchecked. Furthermore, it does not stop when the patient is "well" but works past that to ensure optimum long-term health. Functional Medicine is a different approach to treating chronic diseases, especially when a patient has more than one chronic condition. The techniques used all avoid surgery and drugs - although both may at times be necessary, Functional Medicine seeks to avoid that necessity as much as possible - but rather to use natural techniques that work entirely with, rather than against, the body.
Functional Medicine is not quackery - it is based on scientific principles and proper testing to uncover the imbalances in the body that cause disease. The process includes spending time discussing a patient's history and looking at genetic and lifestyle factors that influence health, specific to each individual.
Patients with chronic diseases should call Meehan Chiropractic and Wellness to schedule an initial consultation and find out what Functional Medicine can do to restore function, health, and quality of life.
