The goal of Integrated Physical Medicine is to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of an injury or disease. It focuses on whole-person healing in order to provide the greatest potential results for each patient's rehabilitation and long-term health. To address the most pressing issues, integrated physical medicine goes beyond typical chiropractic treatments. Following the treatment of present health problems, integrated medicine focuses on reducing the likelihood of reoccurring symptoms and preventing harm and disease. Integrative physical therapy is a type of physical therapy that focuses on treating the whole person, addressing root dysfunctions, enhancing the body's self-healing processes, controlling the stress response, and paying particular attention to the mind-body-spirit link.
