At Vibrant Life Chiropractic we believe that health is a state of wholeness in which your body knows its ever-changing needs and respond to those, all on its own. We believe that chiropractic care is a long-term form of preventative healthcare that maintains your body’s nervous system to keep you in good health for a lifetime.
True chiropractic care in a neurologically-based practice believes that bodily health exists when the body is in a state of wholeness; it understands its own constantly-changing needs, and is able to respond to them on its own. Chiropractic care does not heal injuries; rather, it helps the body to engage its own incredible natural healing abilities through a long-term routine of preventative healthcare maintenance for the nervous system.
Preventative healthcare focuses on your entire nervous system: your brain, spinal cord, and every one of the millions of nerve connections throughout your body. It monitors your entire body and all its needs, to help control and coordinate the necessary responses that allow the body to learn, adapt and constantly maintain its own health and wellness.
Preventative care vs. “sick” care
The common healthcare model in the United States is the “sick care” model. It only looks at your body after symptoms of illness present, and then considers how best to treat these symptoms. When one considers that there are thousands of syndromes, diseases and health issues out there, this creates an equal number of potential complications and problems with treating sickness. It is sometimes necessary to treat symptoms, but there is a time and place for this type treatment.
The preventative healthcare chiropractic model on the other hand is entirely natural and non-invasive. At Vibrant Life Chiropractic, Dr. Kurt Lang is focused entirely on correcting spinal subluxations to allow your whole nervous system to communicate better and increase the body’s healing abilities. This improves your ability to adapt to stress and a variety of health conditions, and helps to restore you to normal, healthy and optimal function.
Chiropractic can restore your natural healing capability, and provide increased vitality, energy, bodily functions and overall health. If you’re considering a preventative healthcare approach in Grand Rapids, give us a call and schedule an appointment today!
