Wellness vs Medical Approach

Chiropractic takes a “wellness” approach to health care.
 
What’s the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care? Wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability, not by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that might interfere with normal function, trusting that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it. Standard medical care, on the other hand, tends to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside — a medication, a surgery, or procedure.
 
In a nutshell, the chiropractic approach to wellness can be viewed as healing from the “Inside Out” as opposed to the “Outside In.”
