Chiropractic care and Personalized Lifestyle Medicine
By its nature, traditional chiropractic care is a form of Personalized Lifestyle Medicine. That is to say, a person suffering from a musculoskeletal issue, such as low-back pain, will be evaluated and given recommendations and treatment that meet the specific needs of the patient and the problem. The premise of "no two patients are the same" applies in traditional chiropractic care.
What we have come to know in the astonishing recent advances in science is that the field of biochemistry as it relates to inflammation, and the field of biomechanics as it relates to the function of the musculoskeletal system, are much more connected than previously thought. In fact, it would be fair to say that most practitioners would have seen these two fields as disconnected.
The most contemporary model of the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders has to include the assessment of inflammatory contributors to the problem. This would involve looking deeper into any other health or physiological issues that the patient may have that would be clues to the co-relationship of pain with inflammation.
