At New Hope Chiropractic we believe that health is a state of wholeness in which your body knows its ever-changing needs and responds to those, all on its own. We believe that chiropractic care is a long-term form of preventative healthcare that maintains your body’s nervous system to keep you in good health for a lifetime.
The nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and all nerves that connect to every system, organ and tissue of your entire body.
It monitors every need of your body, and controls and coordinates the responses necessary to adapt, learn and continually maintain health.
“Health” care vs. “sick” care.
The Medical Model looks at your body after you’re already showing symptoms of sickness, and thinks about how to treat those. With over 2,000 different diseases and syndromes, you can imagine there are just as many combinations of treatments. This is a symptom and disease approach based on treating your health issues after they’ve already impacted you.
The Chiropractic Model is a preventative, all-natural form of healthcare that affects your health condition at the root cause of issues. Dr. Michael Smallwood’s focus at New Hope Chiropractic is to correct subluxations in the spine to allow your nervous system to function properly. Your body is constantly adapting to stress and other health issues, and chiropractic plays a role in helping to restore it to normal, healthy function. If you’re in search of preventative healthcare options in New Jersey, we believe that we can help you.
