Many of our patients come to see our doctors to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our physicians will address each patient's specific condition, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic -orthopedic care? The goal of chiropractic - orthopedic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by one of our physicians can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Many patients do not know which supplements and vitamins are good for them and how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another. At Caraotta Chiropractic Orthopedics, we can can arrange a structured nutritional program that is based on individual needs.
