Healthful Lifestyle Changes
Integrating lifestyle changes into your overall treatment plan is one of the most important therapies we use to treat many chronic health problems. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) now recommends lifestyle changes as the first line of therapy for the major chronic diseases in our society, such as heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis and many others. In fact, the most common reason Americans seek physician consultations is related to stomach and gut trouble. All of these conditions are directly related to unhealthful lifestyles.
Although chiropractic adjustments can remove nervous system impairment of internal functions, there are other fundamental ways to optimize your health. At Portland Chiropractic Group, we believe that health is a continuous living thing, requiring knowledge and the encouragement to use it. True health is about feeling great more days than not. It’s about always having the energy to do the things you want, living without pain, performing at your best, and aging gracefully and healthfully. Healthful lifestyle means living your life in a way that improves your health, not diminish it. Making choices that will enhance your health and achieve a full, energetic life well into old age is at the core of who we are. At Portland Chiropractic Group, we will give you the knowledge to empower you to make healthy choices each day. Our concept of therapeutic lifestyle changes is science-based. No magic pills, no miracle cures, no hocus pocus. True success lies in addressing the root of the problem, then adhering to the plan through completion.
