With a medical fitness and wellness program located onsite, the chiropractor has an even better reason for patients to adopt a "wellness attitude" following active care. With patients already into the pattern of receiving chiropractic care several times a week, a transition to a structured, cash-based exercise program is easy and one that the doctor of chiropractic can directly supervise and control.
And from a patient's perspective, a chiropractor recommending exercise is not only logical, but expected. It not only helps to reinforce and support the body's natural healing ability, but it also becomes the third pillar of a chiropractor's wellness "formula" along with spine/nervous system integrity and nutrition.
In today's health care market, it is the forward-thinking chiropractor who is taking the opportunity to put his or her practice on the cutting edge of what patients really want beyond "back care" - a total wellness approach to their health under the guidance of a knowledgeable professional.
