We all challenge our health throughout the day; that’s just part of living life to the full. Even the healthiest people sometimes suffer a setback. Repetitive strains, overwork, poor sleep, environmental stress, dietary imbalance, dehydration, physical over-activity or under-activity, emotional stress, and ageing are all factors that can have a negative impact on your overall well-being.
Although your body is a marvel of resilience, these stressors can eventually take a toll. Imbalances caused by these triggers might lead to tension, tiredness, fatigue, pain and stiffness, changes in digestion, sleep disruption, and later, degenerative changes. Being free of illness, pain and fatigue is certainly an important part of being healthy. It’s being able to bounce back from these stressors on your own and being able to throw yourself into an active life that means you’re in good health.
If you're already in good health then you're starting from a firm foundation. Stepping up to great health means waking refreshed from a restful sleep, having energy even after your longest work days, enjoying greater mental acuity, and recovering quickly from stress and injury. If you’re not feeling great almost all of the time, then you could probably be managing your health better.
Achieving great health is an additive process, not solely a subtractive one; what you do is as important as what you don't do. With a broad approach to wellness you can incorporate beneficial changes to enhance your overall well-being. Because you can't always remove the stressors from your life, we help you find the best ways to deal with it. From better nutrition to more appropriate exercise, our comprehensive view seeks to improve your overall wellness rather than selectively eliminating symptoms. Since good health is much more than simply not having symptoms, we believe that health care should be more than just relieving symptoms.
Good health care starts with education and awareness that is focussed on preventing health problems developing in the first place. Our team includes you, and we feel it's vital not only to give you the tools to improve your well-being, but also to show you how they're used. Through education, you can enjoy an active life while taking charge of your own care. As well as we get to know you and your health, you'll always know yourself and your body better than anyone, so it's vital that you gain the knowledge you need to keep feeling great.
The first step in your education is the knowledge that you don't have to settle for just adequate health. Reach for a higher level and discover how good you can feel. With an emphasis on health literacy, preventative medicine and wellness, Better Health Osteopathic & Integrative Medicine embraces the philosophy that an integrated approach to health care results in a broader view of positive health and greater sense of self-efficacy for patients. We involve you in your own care. You're the one who knows your body from the inside, so your input is an essential guide to our treatment.
We take a comprehensive approach to health management to help you recover from pain, injury or illness, and develop the awareness and skills you need to achieve the highest possible level of health. With thorough examination and diagnosis, we aim to establish a clear understanding of why your problem developed in the first place. Our approach to treatment is focused on resolving the underlying causes of your complaint and helping you to manage your own health and stay active. This systemic outlook complements other courses of treatment and fosters a pro-active and preventive approach to health.
