The Doctor Of The Future

chiro-spine1

“The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and the cause and prevention of disease.”

Thomas Edison

 

 

What does that mean?

 

It means that the day will come when people will realize that medicine has detrimental effects, and that medicine covers up the symptoms and pain rather than correct the cause of the problem.

 

The body’s lifeline is the brain and the nervous system which is protected by the spinal column—the human frame.  The spinal cord carries all the information that is being sent from your brain to the rest of your body.  Thus your spine is protecting the most important part of your body and of your life.  If the spine is compromised, so will your health and your life.

 

Diet is important because you need to give it the adequate nutrition it needs in order to function properly. The food you eat is the fuel source for the body.  If you put junk in, you will not get the performance you expect, just as you wouldn’t from a car.

 

Prevention– why wait for a problem to show up before you take care of your body?  Take care of yourself-if you lose your health, you lose everything and most of the time you can’t get it back to the peak that it was before.

 

The Future is Now!

Patient Preference to Wellness Care: Is it on the Menu?

Introduction: Wellness care is a relatively popular topic in the emerging health care arena. Consumers are seeking better ways to prevent the onset of chronic diseases and even the common affects of aging by increasing their use of alternative approaches to getting and staying well including preventing illness. Currently, patient preferences for wellness care are relatively low within the profession, ranging near the 10% level depending on the study. The World Federation of Chiropractic’s “Consultation on Identity” found that only 6% of patients seek wellness care.

One question posed is, will patients seek out chiropractors more if they increase their level of orthodox preventive health screenings and recommendations? Will a patient seek out a chiropractor for wellness any more than they would an allopathic health care provider? Clearly, in light of the inconclusive research evidence base on chiropractic alternative techniques, a balanced approach to wellness, inclusive of both normative public health promotion objectives as well as a reasonable approach to offering chiropractic alternative methods, should remain within the realm of discussion.

Results: The most interesting finding is the variable of Health Behavior where 42.1% percent of patients presented to these chiropractor’s offices without a specific focused complaint. These patients either presented for wellness, prevention of illness or perceived they were at risk for injury.
