The idea of healing is more complex than ever
When it comes to chronic pain, the idea of healing is ever changing; what exactly does it mean to heal and how should we should go about such a complex process? Some methodologies like that of Traditional Chinese Medicine operate on the same set of guiding principals over millenia; others, like chiropractic, have only joined the debate within the last century. What these examples have in common is that they take a different tack to treating chronic pain than what is commonly offered in western medicine. A Google search for, “healing chronic pain,” returned tens of thousands of results. Many of these results are from trusted sources, and equally as many are from more obscure corners of the web. At OFW Chiropractic, what we offer you is a no-nonsense approach to healing that doesn’t pretend to be anything it is not.
A natural approach to healing
We know that chiropractic modalities are not the answer to every malady. Many afflictions that cause chronic pain can evade even the highest level of coordinated care that we currently have available in western medicine. The truth is, chronic pain, its causative factors and its interaction with brain and body, are still little understood. At our office in Westwood, we focus on using a natural and holistic approach to wellness that optimizes your body’s innate ability to fight off chronic pain. When combined with other modalities, chiropractic offers people a powerful option for maximizing wellness despite chronic pain.
