Chiropractic works best when it’s proactive
Typically, when someone mentions “chiropractic” it brings to mind thoughts of back or neck pain, perhaps the result of an auto accident or a work-related injury; but there is so much more to chiropractic care.
Thomas Edison once said, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease,” and this truly sums up the goal of wellness chiropractic care. Not to be “anti-medicine,” but to assist patients in living a lifestyle that will rarely, if ever, require it.
It’s about good habits
A wellness approach to health means adopting a variety of healthy habits for optimum function on all levels – physical, mental, social, and spiritual.
Because of its focus on the nervous system, chiropractic care can be an important part of a wellness lifestyle. The nervous system controls the function of virtually every aspect of our lives. So, maintaining a properly functioning nervous system is essential if you want to be your very best. There are very few things as complicated as your body can be, thus, it shouldn’t be “fixed” then ignored. That’s why we will recommend a schedule of regular chiropractic check-ups (maintenance visits). Like maintaining your teeth, your care, your family, or your faith, maintaining the integrity of your nervous system via proper spinal hygiene requires an ongoing investment. You’ll find this to be one of the best investments you can make towards living a life of optimal health! Those who want the very best, add regular chiropractic care to their other health practices. The pleasant result is often more vitality, endurance, and the capacity to enjoy life to its fullest. Good nutrition, exercise, chiropractic care, and other preventative measures are part of a wellness lifestyle.
Today, more and more of us are interested in a higher level of health called WELLNESS. Beyond merely feeling better or preventing health problems, we want to fully enjoy life by being at our best mentally, physically, and socially.
At Empower Family Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain and decreased function. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from Dr. Jeannique Norbert will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve and maintain balance and health.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body and as part of that goal, we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional advice can assist you on your return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At Empower Family Chiropractic, Dr. Jeannique Norbert will provide you with the nutritional advice necessary to meet your individual needs.

Many patients visit the chiropractor to address specific pain symptoms. While Dr. Norbert will address each patient’s specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For instance, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with your chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
