What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with the primary prevention and underlying cause of disease. Using a scientific, systems-oriented approach, the traditional disease centered focus of medical practice is shifted to a more patient–centered approach. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Practitioners spend time looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long–term health. At ChiroFunction we evaluate each patient's structure, nutrition, lifestyle choices, detoxification abilities, and stress management skills. Our objective is to restore a healthy balance within the body's systems and support the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
