Our Wellness Exam and educational methods are based on outcome measurements. This is a term used in rehabilitation. Measure an individuals strength, flexibility, cardiovascular condition, and more. Re-measure at appropriate intervals and determine the point of maximum medical benefits and release the person from active care. This way the outcome of a particular case can be determined. Usually, this procedure has been confined to individuals with pain.
There is a movement in wellness care to go beyond this concept. Our present Health Care System is a failed concept that is not working in making our population healthier. It is one that the insurance companies have been shaping for too long. They have made the public rely upon it so heavily patients are not capable of making appropriate decisions of their own care.
There is no exact science in any aspect of health care. There is even less in wellness care. There is more money in research for sickness and pain than there is in improved function of a person without disease or pain. Philosophy drives wellness care. Thought has always preceded science. The concepts of wellness are a mix of science and philosophy. It is your responsibility to decide what makes sense for you.
