Community Wellness Service
Life Chiropractic Center has remained the leading chiropractic health and wellness group in the San Diego community since 1986. The continued success of Life Chiropractic Center is largely due to relationships formed in efforts to promote health and wellness in the community, and its commitment to education and public service.
Our Community Wellness program is designed by the doctors at Life Chiropractic Center to assist and educate the community about advantages in pursuing proactive healthcare, alternative healthcare, and local resources available to them. Life Chiropractic Center serves as a supportive and educational aid to local businesses, groups and organizations pursuing health and wellness initiatives for their employees and/or members
Why Do We Have a Community Wellness Program?
Identifying the need for a Community Wellness Program is a fairly simple task. Statistically speaking, we as Americans are a very unhealthy group of people. Obesity rates in the U.S. are still increasing. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that more than one-third of American adults and children are either considered overweight or obese. Obesity and low levels of physical inactivity are associated with health problems such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, which can result in early death and increased medical care costs. Also, the leading causes of death in the U.S. for the past 10 years has been Heart Disease and Cancer. These statistics keep going up, and without preventative measures, will continue to rise.
There has been little progress during the past decade in reducing deaths attributable to the risk factors of poor nutrition, physical inactivity and obesity. We have always told people "they need to eat better and exercise". This admonition has met with little success.
People must live healthier lifestyles, but they need help. Life Chiropractic Center's Community Wellness Program is a powerful tool designed to help individuals and communities improve their health and reduce their risk of developing chronic conditions. Our program educates people about the benefits of chiropractic care while encouraging them to adopt healthy behaviors, by providing resources that support these behaviors.
