Functional Medicine

The New Jersey Spine & Health Center offers the latest in the “Functional Medicine” model, an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.
 
Providing these services requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes. At the New Jersey Spine & Health Center, our trained professionals will apply Functional Medicine practices to improve overall health and well being.

By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, our practitioners can identify the best and most effective treatment. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, our Functional Medicine practitioners target to treat the specific manifestations of an individuals’ condition.

By offering Functional Medicine practices in collaboration with other services, the Spine & Health Center of New Jersey offers truly full body care, designed to help patients get better faster, and stay better longer.
