Wilderness Chiropractic has been serving the North Pittsburgh community since 1998. We are a family-owned, family-operated business that delivers quality, patient-centered healthcare in a relaxing environment. When you first walk in the door, you will probably notice that Wilderness Chiropractic is not like most doctors’ offices. The doctors of Wilderness Chiropractic pride themselves on spending the time and attention required to treat every patient as an individual because no two patients’ health concerns are alike. Not only do we care about your health, but we care about you as a human being. At Wilderness Chiropractic, you can trust us with your health because we treat you as we would a member of our own family.
We empower patients to take a more proactive role in their health
Although getting you out of pain is an essential part of your care at Wilderness Chiropractic, we believe this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to you becoming a healthier individual. Our process to empowerment begins by taking the time to learn your lifestyle habits, your health concerns, and your future goals for your health. After a thorough evaluation, one of the doctors at Wilderness Chiropractic will explain their findings, and they will recommend the proper course of treatment to correct your problem. At Wilderness Chiropractic, we educate patients that chiropractic care is just a small part of becoming healthier. Though we wish we could say chiropractic is a miracle cure to every ailment, many diseases are perpetuated by lifestyle habits. Therefore, for an individual to achieve an optimal quality of life, they must also make other positive changes in their lives.
It is our goal to improve patient wellness and quality of life rather than just treating symptoms
Unfortunately, healthcare in the United States is based upon how you feel and not how you function. In typical Western medicine, you go to a doctor when you are in pain, and the care you receive is typically in the form of a medication or surgery to mask the pain. Have you ever thought to yourself, why are the doctors not trying to figure out what is causing this pain? At Wilderness Chiropractic, we focus on taking care of the cause of the pain, not just the pain itself. The pain you are experiencing is only a small chapter in your book of health.
Consider the long-term sufferer of headaches…when the vertebrae of your neck are not moving properly, the body tries to protect itself by tightening all of the muscles of the neck and upper back, resulting in significant tension. This tension affects how your immune system functions because the muscle tightness restricts the flow of lymph fluid through your body. This tension also constricts the arteries of your neck, and therefore the flow of blood to your head, resulting in a headache. When the joints are not moving correctly, additional neck pain often develops due to a lack of lubrication in the joints because joint movement is required to replenish synovial fluid. This pain can affect your sleep, leaving you groggy and lethargic in the morning. If you take a pill for the headache, you are missing out on so many parts to the story. Stop settling for a mediocre “pain-free” approach to health, and begin your journey towards optimal health by taking care of the source of your problems.
