October is National Chiropractic Health Month, and Wise Chiropractic: Holistic Family Wellness thinks it is a great time to heighten awareness about how the chiropractic profession has changed.
When you think of a "chiropractor," you might automatically think of a person who treats back injuries or back pain by special adjustments. That's partly true, but today's chiropractic physician does a whole lot more and has come a long way from being just a "back doctor."
Currently in all states, chiropractic physicians are considered primary care doctors. That means your chiropractic physician is a first point of entry to the health care system for a full range of health conditions and illnesses. In addition, chiropractic medicine is an excellent choice for those interested in maintaining health and wellness and preventing disease.
Today's chiropractic physicians are trained to diagnose, manage and treat a full range of human health concerns and often co-manage cases with other health professionals such as MDs, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists and other specialists. Patients with allergies, digestive problems, chronic respiratory illness, and other diverse conditions are finding relief and health improvement by working with chiropractic physicians. Your chiropractic physician, like Dr. Jon Wise, is also trained to recognize and manage the special health needs of children, expectant mothers, and older individuals.
Chiropractic physicians rely on a wide range of natural and conservative treatments, such as nutritional assessment and counseling, physical rehabilitation, acupuncture, lifestyle modification, botanical medicine and supplements, spinal and joint manipulation, and so much more... Here at Wise Chiropractic, we offer traditional holistic chiropractic care coupled with nutritional response testing, naet ( allergy elimination), hcg weightloss, yoga therapy, therapeutic exercises, graston therapy, cold lazer and nutritional supplements just to name a few.
Did you know that the field of chiropractic medicine also has different specialties? Some chiropractic physicians have earned additional diplomate credentials through extensive education in medical specialties such as internal medicine, sports medicine, acupuncture, diagnostic imaging and more. Others have completed accredited Master of Science degrees in diagnostic imaging or advanced clinical practice. Dr. Jon Wise is a family physician! He is board certified in the state of Nevada and holds several additional certificates in nutrition and naet. He has great knowledge in internal and sports medicine. Dr. Wise has many sport athletes ranging from golf, MMA fighters to NFL and NBA players. He is also currently working of his fellowship in pediatrics!

Today's chiropractic medicine provides an important option for those seeking better health through the use of conservative methods.
