Holistic Chiropractic Care Considers More than Adjustments
For many years a chiropractor had the job of popping backs into place. Of course we have always done more than that, but the general public saw chiropractic care as just cracking backs. Today, however, a holistic chiropractor is more in tune with your overall health. It’s not just about cracking backs – something we do, but that’s not all we do. Instead, it’s about making sure you fully understand why your joints are all out of line, and what is necessary to get things lined back up so you can enjoy a life with less pain.
But what does a holistic chiropractor do? Here’s a look at what it all entails.
Chiropractic Adjustments in Billings
Naturally, a chiropractor is going to do adjustments. Holistic treatment doesn’t mean those adjustments are going to be any different. It just means that we’re not cracking backs, scheduling another visit in a few days, and patting you on the backside as you head out the door.
Instead, our goal is to make sure you receive the proper amount of treatment; not too much, and not too little.
Nutrition Counseling in Montana
We don’t have a certified nutrition counselor in our office. However, a holistic chiropractor does provide some coaching and counseling on what the best diet actually is.
That diet, of course, minimizes processed foods and sugars, and maximizes whole foods like grains, nuts, and vegetables. Many people don’t make the connection of joint pain with their diet, but the two are highly tied to each other.
Exercise Therapy in Billings
There are some chiropractic offices in town that join up with physical therapists. The two can work together for a more holistic approach to ensuring that you stay healthy.
Here at Dr. Shayne Durbin Chiropractor, we don’t have a PT in the office, but we can give some guidance and guidelines on what sorts of exercises to do so that you strengthen the muscles and your body functions optimally.
Mind-Body Techniques Montana
Mind-body technique are often quickly dismissed as sort of woo-woo. What many people don’t realize is that the mind is a part of the body, the body is made up of the mind. When the two aren’t working together, they’re working against each other.
Mind-body can be as simple as meditative yoga (yoga is offered right next door at Black Orchid), or you can get as deep into it as you want to see how much of that connection your mind and body actually have. Some have claimed to heal from illnesses by focusing the mind.
Massage Therapy Billings, MT
One of the biggest reasons that joint pain comes back, is because your body has “learned” to hold itself incorrectly. We have to teach those muscles to relax, and stop pulling the joints out of place.
One of the ways to do that is to let them relax with a bit of a massage. And who doesn’t love a massage anyway? It’s calming, relaxing, and ultimately helps your muscles and joints heal.
