|Functional Medicine Clinicians Define Functional Medicine and its Impact on Patient Outcomes|
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
HOW FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CHANGES THE WAY WE DO MEDICINE:

Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis. The system of medicine practiced by most physicians is oriented toward acute care, the diagnosis and treatment of trauma or illness that is of short duration and in need of urgent care, such as a heart attack or a broken leg. Physicians apply specific, prescribed treatments such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat the immediate problem or symptom.
Unfortunately, the acute-care approach to medicine is ill equipped to address complex, chronic disease. In most cases, the model does not take into account the unique genetic makeup of each individual and does not allow time for exploring the aspects of today’s lifestyle that have a direct influence on the rise in chronic disease in modern Western society; critical environmental factors such as stress, diet, and exposure to toxins. As a result, most physicians are not adequately trained to assess the underlying causes of complex, chronic disease, nor to apply strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to both treat and prevent these illnesses in their patients.
Functional Medicine is a different approach, with methodology and tools that are specifically designed to prevent and treat chronic diseases.

The phrase, "No pain, no gain" is now obsolete in my thinking. I am restored to life, and I gained it without suffering pain.
After reading about Dr. Evans and her MLS Class IV laser therapy, (which did, by the way, actually relieve my knee pain without the use of braces, without any injections, or surgery) I put my faith in her and in the team at the office of Dr. Evans.
Following treatments my knee pain was relived by 90%. No kidding. It worked beautifully! The other 10% can be attributed, I believe, to my old age.
Due to my new found happiness, I am planning to start up a new Boy Scout Troop for Senior Citizens with this motto: "Be Repaired" by Dr. Evans. I feel lucky to have found the knowledgeable Dr. Evans and her staff at the Chiropractic, Pain Laser, and Acupuncture Center.
