Functional Medicine Q & A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a more patient-focused approach to managing chronic disease. 

With traditional medical care, treatment focuses on managing symptoms with medications or surgery. In functional medicine, treatment centers on finding the root cause of your symptoms and using more natural therapies for treatment, like nutrition and exercise, to eliminate the underlying health issue and the symptoms it causes.

Texas Functional Health Centers is a chiropractic and rehabilitative care center. The team of providers looks at symptoms like neck pain and excessive weight as a signal from the body pointing toward an underlying, often hidden, health issue. Using their education and experience, they use these signals to find and treat these hidden health issues to restore wellness.
