What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is neither conventional nor alternative medicine. It’s a combination of the best elements of both, and it represents the future of medicine.
In conventional medicine, there’s a doctor for every part of your body: cardiologists for the heart, gastroenterologists for the digestive system, neurologists for the brain and nervous system, and dermatologists for your skin.
In functional medicine, we see the body as an interconnected whole, within a larger environment. We recognize that in order to treat one part of the body, all of the other parts must also be considered. This is why we focus on the root causes of your health so you can get well and stay well.

Many people may not be aware of the correlation between a healthy spine and better overall health, as chiropractic has been synonymous with back pain and neck pain for decades. However, many of our patients are pleasantly surprised to experience relief from seemingly unrelated health issues once they are going through our corrective care program. Why? Simply put, by eliminating spinal misalignments and reshaping the spine back to its normal curvature, nerve flow energy is once again allowed to flow optimally to the entire body, including vital organs. This, in turn, allows the digestive system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, the immune system, and other systems to turn back the hands of time, and work optimally the way they were intended.
“Chiropractic changed my life for good. It’s a shame not too many people know how incredible chiropractic can be.”
Having been involved in a pretty bad car accident, and being told pain would be something I’d have to deal with just didn’t sit well with me. So I did my research and found Dr Justin Scott of STRONGLIFE Chiropractic (chiropractor Lithia). After a thorough exam, he pinpointed what needed to be done, and within several sessions, I was back to jogging again — something I was convinced I could no longer do. Three months later, I am completely back, and even better than I have ever felt.
