This new paradigm has been based on the fact that a cell, the most basic functional unit of human body, is controlled by the nervous system and these nervous systems are protected by the bones and muscles. The disease and health (wellness) could not be clearly distinguished like black or white. It is rather looks at as the continuous process of being healthy and becoming ill. This is the reason why most of time, symptoms can not even be detected by any medical test until your disorder progresses into a more severe diseased state.

For example, a patient presents symptoms of chronic fatigue and sore neck/shoulder muscles from being over worked. Even after a full physical exam which included a liver function test, blood work and even an MRI show no obvious signs of the disease.

Therefore, any routine medical test has some weaknesses. The test does not tell where a patient’s state of health is on the continuum of health and disease. Rather, it can only vaguely tell them if they have a disease or not.
Furthermore, most of the test results run normal until the patient’s function declines more than 30-40%.

Therefore, a doctor must look closely into those symptoms more holistically, and consider the patient’s life style and diet, etc. in order to find the cause of their disease, and find out their state of health. The doctor must realize where your patient may stand on the continuum of health/disease and the doctor must search a probable cause of any symptom in order to treat them properly. That is the main goal of Dr. Paul.

The best way to avoid the illness is preventing it in the first place. Dr. Paul not only treats the cause of disease, but is also dedicated into patient education and preventative medicine. Dr. Paul clinic is also specialized in treating neuromusculoskeletal problems such as low back pain, neck pain (whiplash injury from motor vehicle accidents), herniated discs, scoliosis, improper posture, flat foot, etc. Dr. Paul treats these problems without drugs and surgery and utilizes natural and non-invasive treatments such as Chiropractic care, myofascial release, foot orthotic, IMS, exercise program, physical therapy and nutritional supplements.
