Functional Medicine

What is functional medicine?

The team at 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center believes in correcting the origin of pain and disease instead of simply masking symptoms with medications and invasive procedures. They practice functional medicine to help patients achieve long-lasting relief from all types of health problems, including back and neck pain. 

With functional medicine, you can take charge of your own wellness by addressing the cause of your problems and developing new habits that promote a happy, healthy, and stress-free lifestyle. 

What does functional medicine entail?

Functional medicine at 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center involves individualized, patient-centered care based on science-backed approaches. Your providers work with you as a team to address the underlying cause of medical conditions and empower you with the resources necessary to make better health choices.

For example, if you suffer from long-term (chronic) knee pain due to inflammation, the team examines all possible causes of that inflammation. By determining the root cause, you can reduce or eliminate that inflammation and ultimately cure your knee pain. 

To discover the cause of pain, your 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center provider may take blood tests to look at genetic and biochemical factors as well as any nutritional deficiencies. They also evaluate your physical strength, posture, and flexibility to check for imbalances. Correcting these issues creates long-lasting relief that doesn’t rely on anti-inflammatory drugs.
