Functional medicine is the newest expansion, and upgrade to the traditional healthcare approach. For the last few centuries, medicine has ingrained itself in our culture as a symptom-treatment model. We wait for symptoms to express and then do whatever we can to make them go away. Whether that is through drugs, radiation, or surgery, the goal of traditional medicine is to eliminate symptoms. We love this kind of medicine for emergencies or when the body isn’t working properly, but at Full Life Chiropractic, we believe that the body has an innate healing potential where given the right environment and resources, it can heal itself, fully.
Unlike traditional medicine, functional medicine looks at you as a whole person. We are not just interested in the symptomatic part of you that is speaking out for help, we take a look at the whole body and how it works together as one integrated system. This may involve lab work, functional nutrition testing, muscle testing, body work like acupuncture or chiropractic care, supplement recommendations, lifestyle changes, tips for stress reduction, and dietary changes.
Patients who get the best results with functional medicine commit to the process and are willing to make shifts in their life to transcend the problem they are dealing with and achieve higher levels of health.
Your functional medicine appointment will be with Dr. Christine Hafer, D.C., DACCP.

WOW – What a friendly chiropractic office to go to :-))) I felt like they took my issues seriously and that their main goal was to get to the bottom of the problem and get it fixed. I would recommend to anyone!
