When you are looking for help for a variety of health concerns, it’s important to be able to take an overarching view of your health. More often than not, various problems will affect one another and influence your overall treatment plan. Consider a spine injury. If you have a herniated disc, for example, you’re going to want to consider how this will affect your ability to walk, if your weight is a factor, and if you need pain management. If you go to a general practitioner, they may only address the pain management side of the issue. But at Progressive Health and Rehab in Gahanna, we can help to address your pain, your nutritional needs to maintain a healthy weight, your strengthening needs to support your core, and how this will affect other parts of your body. Holistic medicine is a whole-body approach to caring for you with both Western medicine and alternatives. Holistic medicine and having a medical team dedicated to your needs is exceptionally important for a number of reasons.

Whole-Body Approach

Working with a holistic medical team, like the one at Progressive Health and Rehab, provides you with a whole-body approach to your health. This allows you to not only be more empowered about your care, but also to be able to treat your body as the whole system that it is. You know it’s true that things like nutrition and muscle strength can all affect how your joints feel, so why would you see a medical practitioner who doesn’t look at the big picture. Or if you’ve ever experienced migraines, you know that there can be a wide variety of factors that affect how you feel on a day to day basis. Looking at your body as an entire system empowers you to become healthier as a whole.

Multiple Specialties

In addition to taking a whole-body approach to your care, working with a holistic medicine practice that has multiple medical practitioners allows you to benefit from the variety of expertise and experiences that each practitioner has. Instead of just seeing a physical therapist independently, you’ll also gain expertise in chiropractic, general medicine, nutrition services, as well as an experienced physical therapist, all under one roof at Progressive Health and Rehab. This way you don’t have to bounce from doctor to doctor in order to get thorough treatment.

Continuity of Care

If you’ve ever moved to a different town, you know how difficult it is to get a hold of all of your medical records and have them transferred to a new doctor. Even if you haven’t moved, but you have had many different doctors working on the same health concern, you know how hard it is to just get those doctors to talk to one another and get on the same page. But when you have an entire medical team under one roof, you can rest assured that you will be given quality continuity of care so that you can be treated appropriately and fully.
