Description

First State Health & Wellness has been providing superior, integrative treatment, education and satisfaction for over 30 years. Our multi-specialty team allows us to address each individual's needs, helping to restore optimal health and well-being without drugs or surgery. Our range of services will support your body's ability to heal using safe and natural techniques to eliminate pain, prevent dis-ease, reduce inflammation, increase strength and improve flexibility. Our doctors provide natural care for patients of all ages, conditions and activity levels-from prenatal, infants and children to athletes, those in pain and anyone seeking to maintain a healthy lifestyle!

Our approach is simple. We believe that health is among our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold:

1. Relief Care

When many people seek care in our office they have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:

* Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
* Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
* Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
* Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care

2. Wellness Care

We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care. Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness model.

You’re the Boss

Regardless of your health goals, please understand that we see ourselves as mere servants. You’re the boss! It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible, and it’s up to you to decide how much of it you want

We look forward to guiding you and your family to healthier, pain-free lifestyle. Please contact our Wilmington office to make an appointment today.
