What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to health care. As a natural health care provider, we strive to get to the root cause of the problem. Our goal is not only to ease the symptoms, but to improve your overall health and well being. It is based on the idea that when your nervous system is functioning properly, without having to manage a crisis storm of bad neurological stimulation, our body has the amazing ability to do all that we ask of it. Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free, non-surgical approach to managing chronic and acute pain, improving organ function, maintaining a good immune system, and delaying the soreness and achiness that most people associate with aging.  Chiropractors use the terms “spinal misalignment” or “vertebral subluxation” to reduce stress on the nervous system.  We treat patients from newborn infants, professional athletes, to people who are more than 100 years old!  Chiropractic care is appropriate care for anyone who wants their body to perform as best as possible.   Sports Injuries and pain, being treated by chiropractor

What Chiropractic Care does Gentle Wellness Provide?

We provide patients with the latest, safest, most effective corrective adjustments to ease pain and discomfort located not only in the neck or back, but any joint, muscle, or to improve organ function.  Dr. Del Monte often says, “Pain is not normal. It is your body trying to tell you that something isn’t working right.  It is the last symptom to appear and the first symptom to disappear.”  Sometimes, patients stop coming in for treatment when their pain disappears.  Initially, patient visits may be frequent so that pain can be managed effectively.  As a patient’s condition improves and their body holds onto the adjustments better, frequency of visits are reduced.  Dr. Del Monte believes in treating a patient effectively, not over-treating.   Dr. Del Monte has years of training and experience with chiropractic adjustments. She strives to always make sure her clients are comfortable and satisfied.  While focusing on the care of the nervous system, Dr. Del Monte also takes the time to learn and understand all aspects of every patient’s life. She takes into consideration their lifestyle, career, family life, daily environment and surroundings, exercise and eating habits so that she can better care for her patients. Gentle Health and Wellness Center strives to make every patient experience enjoyable and informative.

Why the Holistic Approach?

Because the spinal cord is a major pathway of the nervous system, it is very important for the spine to function properly. This allows the rest of our nervous system and all that it reaches to work together in harmony. The chiropractic adjustments we perform on each individual patient are chosen to elicit a precise response in your nervous system.  In some cases, this is an ongoing healing process that has both short-term benefits (immediate pain relief), as well as long-term benefits (ease of movement, improved stability, overall improvement in health and vitality, decreased incidence of flare ups, and less dependence on medication).  In addition to chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage, nutrition counseling and physical rehabilitation are components of a successful and effective treatment plan.
