Functional Medicine

Welcome to Our Functional Medicine Approach

At The McCord Clinic, we are committed to providing comprehensive care that addresses the underlying causes of chronic illnesses. Our unique approach combines chiropractic care with functional medicine, a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and treating the root causes of illness, rather than just managing symptoms.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a patient-centered approach that seeks to understand the interconnectedness of the body’s systems and addresses the underlying imbalances that contribute to chronic illnesses. It recognizes that each person is unique and acknowledges that no single treatment approach works for everyone. Instead, functional medicine practitioners work closely with patients to create personalized treatment plans that address their specific needs.

Holistic Treatment of Chronic Illnesses

Unlike traditional medicine, which often focuses on suppressing symptoms or using medication as the primary treatment method, functional medicine takes a holistic and integrative approach. It seeks to identify the underlying causes of chronic illnesses by considering factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, environmental influences, and emotional well-being.

By looking at the body as a whole, functional medicine practitioners aim to restore balance and optimize the function of various bodily systems.

Key Principles of Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is guided by several key principles:

  1. Patient-Centered Approach: Functional medicine places the patient at the center of care. It acknowledges the unique genetic makeup, environment, and lifestyle factors of each individual, and tailors treatment plans accordingly.
  2. Understanding the Root Causes: Rather than merely addressing symptoms, functional medicine aims to identify and treat the underlying root causes of illness. This involves a detailed analysis of the patient’s medical history, lifestyle factors, genetic predispositions, and environmental influences.
  3. Systems-Based Approach: Functional medicine recognizes the interconnections between various systems in the body. It understands that imbalances in one system can have far-reaching effects on others, and therefore takes a comprehensive approach to restore overall balance and function.
  4. Lifestyle Modifications: Functional medicine emphasizes the importance of lifestyle modifications, including nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, and social support. These lifestyle factors play a significant role in promoting wellness and preventing chronic illnesses.
  5. Integrative Treatments: Functional medicine integrates various treatment modalities, including chiropractic care, nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, supplements, stress reduction techniques, and mind-body therapies. By combining these approaches, functional medicine aims to optimize the body’s self-healing mechanisms.
