WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

In comparison to traditional medicine and the disease-centered approach used by most medical professionals today, functional medicine shifts the focus of mainstream healthcare to a more patient-centered approach. Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. This method of health care is heavily supported by science and therefore requires extensive diagnostic testing which allows us to gather the necessary data needed to analyze each and every factor that may be negatively affecting you, and ultimately causing the metabolic dysfunction within your body.

Factors that may be negatively affecting your body and its ability to properly function could be hormonal issues, behavior and lifestyle choices, or the environment. It could also be a combination of factors in which the disease may originate.

Functional Medicine can help with conditions that are chronic in nature, which means that they are generally issues that are long-term and will likely impact most every aspect of a person's life. Chronic conditions can often be caught in early stages, thereby increasing the likelihood of either reversing effects or, minimally stopping them from progressing. This means improved health, in the long run, potentially increasing a person's quality of life dramatically. Functional Medicine is a natural solution to chronic health issues and is the future of healthcare.

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY?

The study of how to diagnose and treat malfunctions of the nervous system by identifying the origin of the neurological deficiency, then healing or normalizing the nerve function. This method of treatment for chronic pain conditions does not attempt to kill nerves with medications, injections, or other toxins, such as Botox; but rather understands exactly what the nerves and nervous system require for them to repair, rebuild, and heal. Ideally, goal is to repair the nervous system to adequately heal the components that are temporarily dysfunctional so that the area(s) of concern are restored to normal function.

Amazing technologies have been discovered to assist in neurologist repair and healing. At Binder Integrated Health Center, we have studied the latest research, thoroughly trained with the most advanced modern technologies, and invested in the latest state-of-the-art neurologic technology to help you heal naturally with long-term results.

It is our priority to ensure optimal treatment designed specifically for your unique pain condition. The functional neurology approach to pain management consists of a sequence of pain-free neurologic therapies and techniques that work in conjunction with one another acting as building blocks as you progress toward the restoration of full neurologic function and ultimate healing.

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?

Chiropractic Treatment is a form of alternative medicine, a natural method primarily concerned with correcting the causes of physical problems, rather than treating the symptoms. Chiropractic care is focused on eliminating any neuromuscular disorder or interference that may be impairing normal health and function, thereby using a variety of methods to analyze and adjust the spine.

Chiropractic adjustments are a science-based art of manipulating the spine using a specific force in a precise direction and applied to a joint that is 'locked up' or not properly functioning. These manipulations or adjustments are safe, natural, and effective techniques that directly improve spinal function and overall health. The primary objective is designed specifically to 'unlock' the subluxated vertebrae through force to restore spinal alignment and normal function.

This alternative form of healthcare is based on a simple, yet powerful premise with a normally functioning spine and healthy nervous system, your body is better able to heal itself. Your spine is the life line of your nervous system. It controls feeling, movement, and all other systemic functions throughout your body. Therefore, a healthy spine and a healthy lifestyle are your keys to optimal health and wellness. Essentially, the practice of chiropractic is designed to naturally restore your body's inborn ability to be healthy and to heal itself.
