Chiropractic for Life
Can regular visits with your family chiropractor in Clermont mean fewer visits to the doctor, pharmacist, urgent care center or emergency room? At Michaux Family Chiropractic, we firmly believe that to be the case when choosing chiropractic as a lifestyle. By receiving regular chiropractic wellness care, individuals and families can enjoy a higher level of overall health, warding off many of the chronic ailments that prevail in our stressful, sedentary, and sometime even toxic modern society. Our clinic's wellness care techniques do more than simply address symptoms of illness or injury -- they actually correct the underlying physical cause of the problem and then provide “maintenance” to prevent that cause from reoccurring.
Chiropractic adjustment and other natural therapies are such powerful forces for wellness because of the critical role of the central nervous system in providing health. This system, coordinated by the spinal cord, sends pain signals and muscle commands, but it also routes an amazing amount of information to involuntary centers such as the immune system, major organs, endocrine system and cardiovascular system. Normal physical function therefore depends on optimal nerve function. When a spinal misalignment or musculoskeletal problem impedes the flow of nerve signals, it can cause or aggravate a wide range of issues such as asthma, hypertension, diabetes, ADHD, organ failure, insomnia, chronic pain or depression, and even infertility. The most effective way of dealing with such issues is simply to prevent them -- and that's where "chiropractic as a lifestyle" comes in.
Our Clermont family chiropractors, Dr. Kurt Michaux and Dr. Lance Stromberg, emphasize eliminating any barriers to normal physical function in his approach to wellness care. Periodic spinal screenings can detect even the tiniest subluxations, or vertebral misalignments, that threaten to pinch nearby nerves or create muscular strains. We can then use minimal spinal adjustments to correct the imbalance before any negative effects can manifest themselves through illness, fatigue or other symptoms. In addition to chiropractic care, we also offer nutritional supplements and lifestyle counseling to ensure that the body receives the conditioning and raw materials it needs for optimal health. If you have a sedentary job, for example, we may prescribe a daily exercise routine to help you remain strong and flexible. We can even advise you on how to avoid the many environmental and food-based toxins that can damage your health.
Our clinic's mission is to improve overall wellness in Clermont, one healthy body at a time. By focusing on staying well rather than recovering from sickness, our patients can enjoy fewer absences from work or school, less reliance on prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs, less time and money spent in doctor's offices, increased longevity and the sense of well-being that only consistent good health can bring. We encourage any Clermont residents interested in preserving their health, and the health of their families, to contact Michaux Family Chiropractic for more information about our wellness care services or schedule an initial consultation at 352-243-7300.
