The main difference between wellness care and standard medical care is the paradigm for the care. Medical care focuses on masking signs or symptoms by adding things to the system or cutting things out of the system. They address symptoms not the cause, leading the individual to believe they are healthy yet the underlying cause still exists. Wellness chiropractic care focuses on removing anything that might interfere with the normal functioning of the system and addressing the cause. Think of a plant. If you have a plant that is wilting, what is the first thing you think of intuitively? You think of adding water not adding drugs or cutting off leaves. Yet in the medical paradigm the first thing we think of is “what drugs should we use?” or “what surgery should be completed?”.
