Chattanooga, TN Wellness Center
Looking for a wellness center in Chattanooga? Usually "wellness center"
indicates a large room with exercise equipment and maybe a personal trainer
or two. A wellness center can often be a place that encourages whole-body
health, starting with exercise.
Did you know that your chiropractor's office is also considered a wellness
center? Wait just a second, here us out. You may wonder how this can be
so, considering that the chiropractor's office is not the gym. You
are right to question this, but the answer is simple: the chiropractor,
just like the gym, offers treatment for every part of the body.
The fact is that a chiropractor creates whole body wellness when he adjusts
your spine. Not only this but he or she may also integrate other types
of wellness into a specific regimen to get you back to your full health,
including exercise. Talk about the
whole body experience.

Chiropractors approach health from a holistic angle. This means that when
you see your chiropractor, he is not only concerned about your spine.
He looks at your entire body, and he searches for ailments that may be
treatable with spinal adjustments.
For example, when you see a chiropractor for the first time, you will need
to give a personal medical history. Then you must give a full account
of your ailment. If you were injured, how and when did it occur? What
symptoms has your entire body suffered after the injury? These sorts of
inquiries show the chiropractor the big picture of what is happening in
If an ailment can be linked to the nervous system (and surprisingly almost
all can be), then it is probably treatable with a chiropractic adjustment.
But that's not all.
Chiropractors are also qualified to offer lifestyle coaching. They can
offer diet advice, even prescribing regimens. They can coach you on physical
activity and can even recommend exercises to strengthen your body to prevent
Chiropractors also often prescribe, recommend, and are even certified to
sell vitamins and other natural supplements to help your body recover
and maintain health.
So you see, chiropractic is holistic because it looks at your body as a
whole. Let's take a look at these different elements of the chiropractic approach.
Once the chiropractor has determined which ailments you suffer from are
linked to the nervous system, he can give you an effective spinal adjustment.
During this part of your chiropractic visit, you may lie down on a cushioned
table while the chiropractor expertly places his or her fingers on your
spine and gently pushes on them. This procedure is important because the
pushing moves spinal bones back into alignment. Once the chiropractor
has completed the adjustment, you may stand up. Many patients feel immediate
relief of pain, especially after the first adjustment.
If your ailment is related to obesity or weak muscles, your chiropractor
may recommend an exercise routine. For example, some patients are the
right weight for their height, but weak muscles in their back are causing
them a lot of pain. Chiropractors are then able to expertly prescribe
physical therapy to resolve this issue, and patients have reported that
within weeks the pain in their back dissipates. In these cases, weak muscles
being strengthened by regular exercise gave their back muscles the strength
they needed to remain in alignment.
If you are overweight, your spine feels it. This is why your chiropractor
may help you lose a certain amount of weight. The less weight the spine
must bear, the easier it is for the spine to recover and stay strong to
Your chiropractor may ask you about your diet every single time you visit
him for an adjustment. This isbecause your diet is just as important as
exercise for keeping your body healthy. For example, if you eat too much
sugar, your digestive system becomes acidic, adding unnecessary chemicals
to the blood stream. Conversely, too much salt increases blood pressure.
A balanced diet is also important for maintaining a proper weight. If you
are overweight, your chiropractor may recommend a low-calorie diet so
that you lose the pounds that are keeping your body from being able to
The combination of adjustments, exercise recommendations and diet advice
are together considered lifestyle coaching. Most chiropractors are well
versed in lifestyle coaching and may offer it as a part of your recovery routine.
Part of lifestyle coaching may also include posture training to improve
your spinal alignment once you leave the office.
It may also include vitamin and other supplement coaching to augment your
diet and keep your immune system healthy and strong.
