Orem Chiropractor Helps You Achieve Wellness Part 1

Your Orem Chiropractor - R. Ned McArthur, D.C., along with other chiropractors, is a proponent of the wellness movement.  Wellness is defined as the pursuit of physical and mental well-being.

Good nutrition, exercise and routine chiropractic care are all parts of a wellness lifestyle.  Chiropractors have always been a proponent of this lifestyle because we understand that the body is a self healing.

The body is made up of muscles, organs and glands which are all controlled by the brain and nervous system.  Injury, stress and toxins all the the ability to interfere with the communication between nerves and muscles, organs and glands.  When there is bad communication between all of these proper function is lost.  A lack of proper function leads to health problems.  Given enough time symptoms begin to develop and eventually the disease process results.

When you begin to notice symptoms like back pain or headaches these are signs to let you know something is wrong.  To cover up these up with pain killers is like putting tape over your dashboard when the check engine light comes on.  The goal of these chemicals is NOT wellness, but a lack of symptoms.

Next time we'll continue our discussion of wellness and more specifically what are wellness practices and what are not.
