Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a great way to safeguard your long-term health, and reduce your risk of certain conditions and problems. If you're in the Commack, King's Park, or Smithtown areas, and looking for health and wellness information, nutrition support, or a chiropractor you can rely on, come see us at The Vitality Center today. Dr. Pape and our staff understand the value of chiropractic care for wellness, but we also know there are other ways to seek health and strength. Functional medicine encompasses several areas.


What Does Functional Medicine Offer?

Functional medicine is an all-encompassing opportunity to have stronger health and wellness, through chiropractic care, good nutrition, and more. The first step in this journey is to understand the specific health issues you're facing. Once that's done, the goal is to discover the best ways to treat those issues in a holistic manner that works for you and will improve your overall health. There are many lifestyle changes that can improve health and well-being, and functional medicine places its focus on those adjustments.

How Can Good Chiropractic Care Help?

Working with a chiropractor is also part of good functional medicine. That's because the spine and joints being out of alignment can cause a lot of problems for the body. The stress and strain on other areas can be made worse when one area is out of step. That puts pressure on the soft tissues, and can cause aches, pains, and discomfort, as well as a reduced range of motion. Chiro helps to correct those kinds of problems.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
