Wellness Q & A

What is wellness care?

Wellness refers to following healthy habits that promote optimal physical, mental, and emotional health. As an experienced chiropractor and acupuncturist, Dr. Arevalo provides holistic care that focuses on more than healing existing injuries. 


Dr. Arevalo’s goal is to encourage healthy musculoskeletal function to prevent illness and injury while helping you look and feel your best. Prioritizing wellness is just as important as caring for your physical health.

How can poor wellness affect my health?

The human body contains numerous bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, organs, and nerves that work together to maintain your health and wellness. Without proper alignment of these internal structures, you can experience uncomfortable symptoms, such as:


  • Joint pain
  • Muscle tension
  • Poor digestion
  • Insomnia and poor sleep quality
  • Fatigue
  • Nerve pain
  • Headaches
  • Inflammation


The nervous system is especially vulnerable to damage from poor wellness care. The central nervous system is your body’s method of communication, sending signals to nearly every structure in your body, from your muscles to your digestive system. Stress, inflammation, and injury can prevent the nervous system from functioning properly.


Restoring alignment to your spine and reducing inflammation through nutrition and exercise can help promote optimal health and wellness.

How can I promote wellness?

Dr. Arevalo is a trained wellness specialist who can create a comprehensive wellness plan for you. Along with a full physical exam, Dr. Arevalo reviews your medical history and asks about any symptoms you’re currently experiencing. This information is vital to helping Dr. Arevalo create a wellness plan that keeps you physically and mentally healthy as you age.


After your health and wellness assessment, Dr. Arevalo may recommend:


  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise modifications
  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic care
  • Stress management
  • Sports injury rehabilitation and prevention 
  • Weight loss


Lifestyle modifications are a large part of any wellness care plan. Dr. Arevalo works with you to help you make meaningful and realistic lifestyle adjustments.
