Traditional medical care today is unparalleled when treating the acutely sick or injured. But for those with chronic pain, chronic diseases, and unanswered medical conditions, a different approach is needed. Addressing the body as a whole and inspecting its fundamental processes is the role that functional medicine, chiropractic and holistic healthcare take.
