Achieving Whole Body Wellness: The Chiropractic Approach

In the pursuit of optimal health and wellness, a holistic approach is gaining recognition and popularity. Chiropractic care is at the forefront of this movement, emphasizing the interconnectedness of the body’s systems and its innate ability to heal. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the chiropractic approach to achieving whole-body wellness, focusing on how it improves posture, mobility, and overall body function.

Understanding Whole Body Wellness

Whole-body wellness goes beyond the absence of disease; it encompasses physical, mental, and social well-being. It’s about achieving a state of balance and harmony in all aspects of life. Chiropractic care aligns perfectly with this philosophy by addressing the root causes of health issues rather than merely treating symptoms.

The Holistic Chiropractic Philosophy

Chiropractors view the body as a complex and interconnected system. They believe that optimal health can be achieved by ensuring that all components of the body are functioning harmoniously.

The Impact of Posture

Posture is more than just standing up straight; it influences the body’s overall function and well-being. Poor posture can lead to a range of health issues, including musculoskeletal pain, reduced mobility, and even digestive problems.

The Chiropractic Approach to Whole Body Wellness

Chiropractic care is a holistic healthcare discipline that focuses on promoting well-being by addressing the musculoskeletal system, primarily the spine. Here’s how chiropractic care contributes to whole-body wellness:

Postural Improvement

Chiropractic adjustments aim to correct spinal misalignments, which can result from poor posture or injuries. By restoring proper spinal alignment, chiropractic care improves posture and reduces the strain on muscles and ligaments.

Enhanced Mobility

A healthy spine is essential for optimal mobility. Chiropractic adjustments can help increase joint mobility, allowing for better range of motion in various parts of the body.

Improved Nervous System Function

The spine houses the central nervous system, which controls bodily functions. Chiropractic care ensures that the spine is free from interference, allowing the nervous system to function optimally.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Whole Body Wellness

Let’s delve deeper into the specific benefits of chiropractic care in promoting whole-body wellness:

  1. Posture Improvement

Chiropractic adjustments correct spinal misalignments, helping individuals stand taller and maintain better posture. This reduces the risk of musculoskeletal pain and enhances self-confidence.

  1. Pain Management

Chiropractic care is highly effective in managing various types of pain, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches. By addressing the root causes of pain, it offers long-term relief without the need for medication.

  1. Enhanced Mobility

Chiropractic adjustments improve joint mobility, making it easier to move and engage in physical activities. This can contribute to a more active and fulfilling lifestyle.

  1. Stress Reduction

Stress can take a toll on both physical and mental health. Chiropractic care helps reduce stress by promoting relaxation, relieving muscle tension, and improving overall well-being.

  1. Better Sleep

Improved spinal alignment and reduced pain can lead to better sleep quality. Adequate sleep is crucial for overall health and vitality.

  1. Enhanced Immune Function

A well-functioning nervous system, free from interference, supports a robust immune system. Chiropractic care can boost immune function, helping the body defend against illness.

The Holistic Lifestyle

Chiropractic care is not just about receiving adjustments; it’s also about embracing a holistic lifestyle. Chiropractors often provide guidance on nutrition, exercise, and stress management to support overall well-being.


Proper nutrition is essential for health and vitality. Chiropractors may offer dietary recommendations to complement chiropractic care.


Regular physical activity is crucial for maintaining a healthy musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors often prescribe exercises to support spinal health.

Stress Management

Chiropractors recognize the impact of stress on health. They may provide strategies to manage stress effectively, contributing to whole-body wellness.

Is Chiropractic Care Right for You?

Chiropractic care is suitable for individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you’re seeking relief from pain, improved mobility, or a holistic approach to well-being, chiropractic care can be a valuable addition to your healthcare journey.

Will my insurance cover this?2022-12-30T00:19:34-05:00

Most insurance policies offer some chiropractic coverage. Dr. Chiungos works with Blue Cross-Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, Tufts Health Plan, Unicare/GIC, and Medicare. See the No Surprises Act for more information.

Is chiropractic treatment safe?2022-12-30T00:00:01-05:00

Absolutely. Chiropractic as a profession is more than 100 years old. We follow industry guidelines during our new patient induction process to minimize risk and maximize benefit. Chiropractic malpractice insurance is considered by many to be the least costly  professional insurance in the healthcare industry because chiropractic is generally considered a safe, manual therapy.

When will I start feeling better?2022-12-30T00:00:41-05:00

It depends on your mechanism of injury and your current state of health. You might start feeling better as soon as your adjustment is finished. You might need to go home and ice (Dr. Chiungos will advise you). If your injury is serious, it may take several visits. But your healing has begun from the first adjustment. Your personal care plan is designed to take you from where you are today to your best possible outcome. Dr. Chiungos will keep you updated on your progress at each visit.


Will my insurance cover decompression treatment?2024-05-24T07:30:29-05:00

Decompression treatment is not currently covered by health insurance. If Dr. Chiungos believes this is an integral part of your treatment plan, he will discuss all costs and potential discounts before the start of care. You will receive informed consent.

Is spinal disc decompression treatment safe?2024-05-24T07:30:42-05:00

Spinal Disc Decompression with the SpineMED® Table has shown to be safe and generally without major side effects or complications once abnormal conditions have been ruled out. The process is so safe and comfortable, it’s not uncommon for patients to fall asleep!

Are there any specific situations that are unsafe for decompression?2024-05-24T07:30:56-05:00
Specific situations that are not suited for decompression therapy include:
  • Patients under 12 years old
  • If you had spinal surgery that involved clips, mesh or fusion
  • If you have fractures, tumors or infections
  • If you have osteoporosis or spondylolisthesis where there’s been a fracture or non-union defect in the spine, where that segment that we want to traction is unstable
How does decompression complement traditional chiropractic?2024-05-24T07:31:11-05:00

Damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal as the discs are constantly under pressure from muscular spasm—during normal activities, and even while sleeping! SpineMED is designed to reduce the pressure in the discs, promoting the influx of vital fluids, nutrients and oxygen back into the discs to assist the body’s natural rebuilding process. This process may speed up the natural repair and could eventually heal damaged spinal discs.

How long will decompression therapy take?2024-05-24T07:31:38-05:00

Sessions are typically 30 minutes long. It could take 15 to 25 sessions or more to see some relief from your discomfort. That’s variable based on your status and the condition we’re treating. Ideally, the sessions are performed daily with rest on the weekend.

Aspen Laser

Will my insurance cover laser treatment?2022-12-30T00:02:57-05:00

Laser treatment, as used in chiropractic offices, is not currently covered by health insurance. If Dr. Chiungos believes this is an integral part of your treatment plan, he will discuss all costs and potential discounts before the start of care.

Is laser therapy safe?2023-01-18T14:21:08-05:00

Laser therapy has been in use for over thirty years with almost no side effects reported. Aspen Laser is FDA-registered and passes all safety compliance requirements. The treatments are not painful; in fact, laser is warm and comfortable to your skin. Dr. Chiungos will check in with you regularly to make sure the temperature feels right, and you can always speak up if it starts to feel too warm. The main safety concern is for the eyes, which is why Dr. Chiungos will provide protective glasses for both patient and doctor at each session.

Are there any situations that are unsafe for laser?2022-12-30T00:04:42-05:00

Laser is effective on most parts of the body; however, there are times when laser is not appropriate:

  • during pregnancy
  • within twelve months of cancer treatments
  • during the use of photo-sensitizing medications
  • over recent steroid injections (seven days)
  • over growth plates or reproductive glands
  • over tattoos or skin infections
How does laser complement traditional chiropractic?2022-12-30T00:05:14-05:00

Laser therapy promotes energy production supporting cellular repair, increased blood flow, increased red blood cell oxygen-carrying capacity, and decrease of inflammation. When used in conjunction with traditional chiropractic, laser can reduce pain and healing time, and promote a deeper, more complete healing to the area of concern.

How long will laser take?2022-12-30T00:05:45-05:00

Sessions typically last 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. They generally start longer and reduce in length as you heal. Most acute conditions require only 10 – 12 treatment sessions. If you have a chronic condition, you may need 12 – 20 treatments and one or two follow-up sessions every month. The amount and frequency of treatments are determined through assessment of your condition combined with Dr. Chiungos’s experience treating patients with laser. You will likely start to feel better after your first 5 sessions.
