More and more people are moving towards achieving wellness. We realise that our lifestyles have become very stressful. We are mentally tired. Our lives now revolve mainly around work. We sit in traffic jams on the way to work, sit for hours at our workstations and then go home and sit in front of the television. Some say we were never designed to sit so much. This causes no end of postural and musculo-skeletal problems. Our lives are so busy that we don’t exercise anymore. Our diets revolve more and more around fast food and this is leading to increased rates of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Wellness is achieved when we balance three aspects of our lives: Physical Fitness, Mental Wellbeing and Nutritional Health. Chiropractic care can help directly by working to alleviate pain symptoms and bring about lifestyle changes to prevent further painful episodes. We also give advice on exercise and nutrition but in the clinic, patients have access to various experts on nutrition and mental wellbeing.
Wellness is more than just the absence of disease.
