Functional Medicine Explained

Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine: (IM) is medicine that is geared towards taking account of the whole person and all aspects of their lifestyle. It focuses on the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is evidence based, and makes use of all appropriate therapies. Chiropractic physicians also provide preventative care to help establish healthy habits in children at all stages of their lives. For example, posture analysis can help identify posture habits that can greatly impact overall health, including energy levels, breathing, stress, and sleep. Additionally, chiropractic care encourages neuroplasticity, preventing neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and Sensory Integration Disorder. Chiropractic medicine is a form of integrative medicine that focuses on natural, non-invasive, evidence-informed practices of disease prevention and health promotion. Through a broad scope of assessment and treatment modalities such as manipulation, functional medicine, physical rehabilitation therapy, targeted nutritional and botanical treatment, acupuncture, and diet/lifestyle management, chiropractic medicine can effectively treat a wide range of conditions and improve overall health. For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez at 915-850-0900
