Integrative Primary Care Q & A

How is integrative primary care different from conventional primary care?

Integrative primary care focuses on you as a whole person, not just on your disease. For making a diagnosis and prescribing effective treatments, this approach takes all aspects of your lifestyle and health into consideration, including:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Social
  • Spiritual
  • Environmental

This holistic philosophy takes into account how each aspect of your life relates to and influences your overall health and well-being. An integrative primary care practice takes a more comprehensive approach to evaluating your symptoms, determining how they relate to the rest of your life than a typical conventional primary care approach, in which you may just receive medications to relieve symptoms. An integrative primary care physician also focuses on relieving your condition and its symptoms long term, not just temporarily.

Additionally, an integrative primary care provider like the ones at Integrative Health Associates places emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship. Together with your provider, you work to incorporate lifestyle changes, nutritional adjustments, and other beneficial practices that help restore your body and psyche to optimal health.

How does integrative primary care work with chiropractic methods?

Integrative primary care and chiropractic therapies both work to embrace and promote your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Integrative medicine, like chiropractic care, is evidence-based and prevention oriented. An integrative medicine approach may combine several aspects of chiropractic care, conventional medicine modalities, and alternative therapies, like massage, for the most extensive treatment plan.

What can I expect at an integrative primary care appointment?

At your integrative primary care appointment, you can expect to take some time speaking with a member of the practice about every aspect of your health and well-being. They take a personalized approach to getting to know you, your lifestyle, and your concerns so they can address them holistically. As needed, your integrative care provider helps to alleviate your immediate symptoms and the long-term effects, taking biological, behavioral, and environmental factors into account.

Additionally, at your integrative primary care appointment, you can expect the practice to:

  • Take into consideration all the factors that influence your health
  • Use all healing sciences to facilitate your body’s healing response
  • Use natural, effective interventions whenever possible
  • Select noninvasive treatments whenever possible
  • Be committed to personalized care to address your unique conditions

Integrative primary care physicians are typically open to learning new techniques and treatments as they arise to find better ways of healing each person for optimal health and wellness.
