Many people think of health as being the absence of physical disease. Wellness is a term used to describe an expanded concept of health. Your genes, your age, and other factors beyond your control determine some aspects of your health. But true wellness is largely determined by the decisions you make on how you live your life. At Shirley Rd Chiropractic we believe that your level of wellness is a reflection of your ability to live life fully, with vitality and meaning.
One of the best definitions of health comes from Dorland’s Medical Dictionary. It states:
Health is a state of complete physical, chemical, emotional and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.
No matter what your age or health status, you can optimise your health. Wellness is not a static goal but a dynamic process of change and growth.
