Functional Medicine is a field of medicine that employs assessment and intervention to improve physiological, cognitive, and physical function. Instead of looking at and treating health problems as isolated diseases, it treats individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions. To battle chronic health conditions, Functional Medicine uses two scientifically grounded principals:
- Add what’s lacking in the body to nudge its physiology back to a state of optimal functioning.
- Remove anything that impedes the body form moving toward this optimal state of physiology.
Our medical model, specifically from the sports medicine aspect, will be a Physical Therapy directed patient treatment plan. This optimal treatment plan allows the athletes/patients to receive care from an all-inclusive medical team within the facility.
