What is a Wellness Score?
When asked the question “how do you know when you’re healthy?”, what is the first answer that comes to mind? For the vast majority of people, the answer has something to do with the way they feel. The problem with this misunderstood concept is that health has less to do with how you feel and more to do with how you function. By the time you feel a problem, it can mean that problem has been there for a long time.
So how do you know how well you are functioning? This is where the wellness score comes into play. Considering how valuable your health is, the wellness score could be the most important test that you’ve taken when it comes to your health.
At In 8 Wellness Center, the doctors will perform the following tests to measure your wellness score:
Neuro-spinal analysis: Your most important organ that regulates body function is your nervous system. It is protected by a suit of armor called your spine. Having a properly functioning spine is paramount for great neurological function. The doctors will assess your spinal health by testing range of motion, analyze every vertebra for potential damage or dysfunction, perform neurological testing, and muscle tests to make sure your brain is communicating to all tissues and organs.
Functional Movement Assessment: Every human being is designed to move. We have evolved to rely on our core strength and flexibility in order to express optimal physical health. The doctors at In 8 Wellness Center will assess your core strength and flexibility with specific testing to discover any limitations or potential threats to your structure.
Digital Postural Assessment: Posture follows movement like a shadow. Your daily habits influence body posture, and your posture will dictate how well you move your body. At In 8 Wellness Center we have the latest technology to digitally analyze posture and gait to identify any imbalances that will cause wear and tear of your spine and joints.
Digital X-ray Analysis: In 8 Wellness Center is equipped with the latest digital x-ray technology when necessary to assess potential damage to the spine or extremities. Specific studies are performed to identify precise areas that may need correction.
The doctors at In 8 Wellness Center are specialists in what is called corrective chiropractic care. This type of chiropractic is not just symptom relief care but oriented in discovering and correcting the cause of the underlying problem. By getting to the source of the problem and allowing the body to heal then dysfunction can be repaired so it is less likely to reappear in the future. This unique craft combines specific chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue release, and corrective exercise.Integrative Diagnosis Soft tissue
