Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a medical specialty that provides ongoing, comprehensive health care for men, women, and children of all ages. Family medicine practitioners, like the highly skilled team at The Back & Body Clinic, take a systems-based approach to health care that focuses on identifying and treating the underlying causes of disease.

In many cases, health conditions are the result of more than one cause, and your family medicine provider addresses each of these causes. As a result, you can get long-term relief from pain and other unpleasant symptoms that may be affecting the quality of your life.

A family medicine approach allows your provider to consider all of your body’s systems and how they work together to treat you as an individual, not just as a disease or a health condition that simply needs pain medication. Instead, the team at The Back & Body Clinic takes a whole-person approach to understanding each of your body’s systems in relation to your health issues. This way, they can prescribe an all-encompassing, customized treatment plan to help you heal.

The integrated team at The Back & Body Clinic considers why you have a health problem, or why you’ve lost mobility in your knee, for example, and what they can do to restore you to optimal health. They often choose conservative, nonsurgical methods whenever possible, and focus on natural treatments instead of prescription medications. They believe in establishing ongoing professional relationships with every member of your family so they can offer the most effective solutions.

What conditions can a family medicine specialist treat?

Family medicine providers emphasize prevention and wellness, and help you manage your overall health long term. The family medicine team at The Back & Body Clinic can help you get relief from a variety of acute and chronic conditions and diseases relating to:

  • Allergies (environmental and food)
  • Digestion
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Metabolism
  • Neurological issues
  • Pain
  • Respiratory infections
  • Muscle sprains
  • Injuries
  • Back pain and chronic problems
  • Headaches and neck pain
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Sinus infections
  • Arthritis

Your doctor begins with a series of tests to identify the underlying causes of your condition so they can determine the most effective treatment plan. Your tests may include bloodwork and another on-site lab testing, DNA testing, and toxicology testing.

How does family medicine treat disease?

Once your doctor determines the underlying causes of your disease or chronic condition, they may recommend such therapies as:

  • Nutritional counseling and nutrient therapy
  • Hormone replacement
  • Vitamin injections or dietary supplements
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Exercise
  • Detoxification regimens
  • Dry needling

An integrated family practice typically takes a natural treatment approach whenever possible so you don’t have to endure harmful or unpleasant side effects associated with certain medications.
