Being in practice for over 15 years, I have had the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people every day. When patients enter our office on their initial visit, they enter with certain symptoms as well as very specific expectations of what it is they want to accomplish. Most commonly, they present with back pain, neck pain, headaches, fatigue and other symptoms of disease and have a simple understanding, or should I say mis-understanding that there is a “quick fix”. Their expectations are that they want to feel better “NOW.”
For these reasons, it is my belief that it is absolutely critical to take time to educate and empower every one of our patients so that they have a complete understanding of the following 4 things:
- What exactly has caused their problem.
- What it is going to take to correct their problem.
- How long is it going to take to correct their problem.
- Exactly how chiropractic and a wellness approach can help.
You see, what I want every patient to understand is that as unique as each individual is when they enter our office, they ALL have certain things in common. For me, the very best part about doing what I do, is knowing that every patient that walks through the door walks in with a problem and the solution inside of them. Remember, healing always comes from within each of us. It is my responsibility to help facilitate that healing by pinpointing where the structural and/or chemical blockages and imbalances are and then remove and correct them. When interference is removed, the body can adapt and heal on its own. It is not a bandaid approach that simply covers up the symptoms. The fact is, most of the imbalances have been developing for weeks, months, and sometimes years. How long it takes to correct is unique for each individual.
At Muskego Health and Wellness Center, it is important to us that we empower our patients to live a healthier lifestyle. This includes proper diet, exercise, stress reduction and adding love to their lives. We find that patients who own a greater understanding of exactly what it means to be “healthy” can make the best health decisions for themselves and their families now and in the future. We are excited to be your health coach and truly enjoy helping you reach your full health potential.
