What Does Holistic Health Mean, and Why is it So Powerful?

If you’ve ever had a long term injury, you might recognize this process. First, the injury itself occurs, and because of the pain, you start changing the way you move your body through the world. By compensating like this, another part of your body will start taking undue strain, and it will eventually begin to hurt as well. This cycle continues and negatively impacts both your physical and mental health, in a way that can take over your entire life.

What does this scenario show? The elaborate connections between your body’s various systems, including your mental health. Understanding that this is how your body functions is the first step towards a holistic approach to health. This month, we’re going to dissect this concept a little more, and show why Petett Chiropractic is committed to holistic health through chiropractic care.  


What Is Holistic Health? 

Holistic health is the recognition that your health expands beyond diet and exercise, to bring together your lifestyle, the choices you make, your education about health, and generally align your body with its natural harmony. As with the above example, it’s an acknowledgment that one disregarded aspect is going to balloon into a bigger problem, and negatively affect the rest of your health. The holistic health movement puts you in control of your health in a way that empowers you to figure out what makes you healthy and happy, and why.


How Does Chiropractic Care Fit Into Holistic Health

If you’ve understood the previous paragraphs, the place that chiropractic care plays in your overall holistic health will be pretty obvious. Chiropractic care is the most direct way to ensure that your spine and back stay in proper working condition. It works to relieve stress on your muscles and nervous system, keep your posture perfect, and generally leave your mind in a state of peace. Your back and spine are integral pillars in your holistic health approach, and chiropractic care is the best way to ensure they’re well-handled.
