We realize that people generally do not have health as their number one priority until they have lost it. This is usually the state in which a patient first enters a chiropractic office. They have some sort of pain that prevents them from living and functioning at the level that they are used to. At this point, they decide to do something about it by coming to see us. During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:
- Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
- Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
- Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
- Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care
A minority of people do have health as their number one priority. They realize the critical importance that chiropractic care plays as a member of their preventative health team. These people understand that true health is not measured by an emotion (how they feel, presence or absence of pain), but by purity and sufficiency in all areas of their life . These people come to the office for Wellness Care.
We know that Wellness Care is not for everyone, but while you are a member of our family, we will do our best to not only remove pain, restore proper joint function, biomechanics, and biochemistry throughout your body; but also to empower you with the information necessary to make healthier lifestyle choices each day. Ultimately, your health is determined by the lifestyle choices you make on a day to day basis.
Regardless of which type of care you select at Transcendent Lifestyle Center, PC, we practice Evidence-Based Care. Evidence-Based Care consists of information from three areas:
- The Best Available Research Evidence
- The Patient’s Values
- The Doctor’s Clinical Expertise
The reason we provide Evidence-Based Care is summed up perfectly in the following quote by William Morgan, DC:
“Relying solely on science would be paralyzing; depending solely on experience would be slipshod, anecdotal, and biased. And if we based care totally on patient preferences, our care would lack clear direction.”
