Modern society is seeing a substantial increase in the frequency of chronic, complex diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and mental illness. The conventional medical system, which is practiced by most of today’s doctors, is focused on acute care, or the assessment and treatment of short-duration illness or trauma. For example, when a physician treats a patient with a broken leg or appendicitis, they apply prescribed, specific treatments such as surgery or drugs to treat the immediate symptom or problem.
However, the acute care focus of conventional medicine lacks the tools and methodology to treat and prevent chronic, complex conditions. In most instances, conventional treatments do not consider each person’s genetic makeup or factors like exposure to environmental toxins. In functional medicine, the doctor considers aspects of the modern lifestyle that directly affect patients’ chances of contracting a chronic disease.
Nutrition is not always given the proper credit for its influence on how people feel and their overall health. It is possible for people to live and feel good for a while on a very poor diet. Unfortunately, the damage this type of diet does to the body will eventually catch up with the individual, and the results are often severe. Everyone needs to understand what they risk when they choose to not nourish their body correctly.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a method of assessment and therapy that involves observation and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. The practice includes testing different muscles and muscle groups to identify areas of weakness that link to imbalances in the organs, the digestive system, the blood supply, or other parts of the body. Treatments are then aimed to stimulate the body's own natural healing abilities. AK is considered a holistic approach to health and wellness, and it is a valuable tool in functional medicine.
I've been going to Dr. Eric Johnson for adjustments for over a year back when he was doing his apprenticeship. He truly is in league of his own, he really took the time to really listen and understand my daily routine and habits and where I could improve to protect the longevity of my health (I drive a lot in my line of work). With Dr. Johnson you're not just another patient or client, you're a friend.
Dr. Eric Johnson is one of the most genuine and intelligent people I have ever met. He really cares about you as his patient and wants whats best for you. He always goes out of his way to make sure you have the best quality of care possible. I recommend him to any of my family or friends.
A Chiropractor is a healthcare professional whose focus is to diagnose and treat neuromuscular disorders through manual adjustment and the manipulation of patients' spines. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions regarding the effectiveness of chiropractic care in today's society. Part of the reason these misconceptions persist is due to a lack of understanding of Chiropractic health.
Chiropractors work with their patients to relieve chronic pain through manual manipulation, providing patients with a convenient and effective alternative to dangerous pharmaceutical painkillers. Some chiropractors are also trained as functional medicine doctors, allowing these professionals to offer patients a wider variety of treatment options. The majority of these options are focused on a holistic approach to healing and pain management, which is perfect for patients who are looking for safe and effective ways to manage their long-term chronic pain.
