Meet Our Clinic’s Team of Award-Winning Chiropractors in Wichita, KS
Our Chiropractors’ Healthcare Philosophy
At ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic, we believe in restoring hope, function, and quality of life by providing the most comprehensive, movement-based approach. This is done in challenge of the status quo in the current healthcare model. ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic’s chiropractors have chosen this profession in hopes of illuminating the path of a shifted focus, in contrast to our current healthcare system, toward a true health-oriented philosophy and practice. We believe we must take a stand and redirect our current “sick” care model to a true “health” care system, in order to provide and protect a positive future, for the coming generations of our society. Working together, all of us can halt, reduce, and even eliminate the rise of chronic health conditions facing our society today such as myofascial pain syndromes, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and numerous neurological diseases.
Our chiropractors believe that, with more individuals willing to take on this initiative, our community will realize that there is another approach to the current healthcare system. One that is preemptive and proactive, instead of reactive. One that focuses on the root cause of pain and dysfunctions in performance, not merely the symptoms. One that gives long-lasting results, not just temporary results or the “quick fix.” And finally, one that is cost-effective for the patient because they will potentially no longer require the lifelong medications, massive surgeries, or lost work time due to chronic health conditions.
Our Chiropractic Care Philosophy
We are a team of chiropractors seeking to involve our community and guide our portion of the healthcare system toward a brighter future. Take this stand with us, and we can all travel down a path that is healthier and happier leading to a positive tomorrow.
