What is Your Wellness Score?
It is getting to the point in the U.S. that we all need a sickness care doctor, i.e. your primary care doctor, and a wellness care doctor, i.e. US! The more you go to the wellness care doctor the less you’ll need the sick care doctor. So how do we - your wellness doctor, measure your wellness? You can’t simply say it’s when you feel good because we all know someone who felt fine one day and dropped dead the next of a heart attack; or the women who felt fine today but was diagnosed with breast cancer the next. Lack of symptoms or feeling good is no way to measure wellness!
We measure wellness by what we call your WELLNESS SCORE. This is a scoring system that was developed and can track and measure your physiology and function. It actually gives you a grade, A thru F. We measure what we call biomarkers of health. When we do a wellness score on you we look at numerous biomarkers of health.
BODY MASS INDEX: It’s a height and weight chart. Yours needs to be below 30 and if it isn’t you have exponentially increased your risk factor for the 3 biggest killers of Americans, heart disease, cancer and obesity related conditions such as diabetes.
POSTURE: You live your life thru your nervous system and your posture tell us exactly what it going on with your spine and nerve system. We take a digital photo of you from the front and side. A picture is worth a 1000 words.
CORE STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY: We’ll measure 8 different ways to test your strength and flexibility of core muscles. We sit too much and it’s taking its toll on our bodies.
CELLULAR HEALTH: The single best determiner of how well we age is how fat we get. We use Bioimpedence Analysis to measure your Body Fat %, Phase Angle, Intercellular Water and Lean Muscle Mass to determine your true cellular age.
NEUROSPINAL FUNCTION INDEX: As chiropractors we work with your spine and nerve system to optimize your health. So it is very practical for us to be able to measure your nerve system. Our EMG test does just that and tells us how well your nerve system is adapting to your environment.
