When it comes to taking care of patients, some Doctors follow a more traditional approach, where the focus centers on finding and eradicating the disease. In contrast, Mesa chiropractors use functional medicine, a newer approach, that seeks to view patients not as a collection of symptoms, but as a whole person who should be considered in entirety. Our experienced Mesa chiropractors at Aaaah…Wellness are devoted to helping each patient achieve total body wellness and we are standing by to assist you with chiropractic care integrated with functional medicine.
What Is Functional Medicine?
Our Mesa chiropractor will explain that functional medicine is more of a holistic approach, avoiding looking at a patient just in terms of symptoms that have presented themselves. Typically, you will find functional medical practitioners spending more time with patients than those that follow a conventional medical approach.
Our doctors take their time, listening to patients as they detail their medical history. Physicians will function like partners with their patients in setting up a treatment plan, as they figure out the best way to combine chiropractic care with functional medicine. You can regard functional medicine in combination with chiropractic care as adopting a holistic approach.
