Redefining Holistic Care at Red Bank, NJ Rehabilitation Center

What do we mean when we use the word ‘holistic’?


On this blog and on the Web site for Monmouth Spine and Rehabilitation Center, I tend to use the word ‘holistic’ a lot. While this term is being used more and more these days, I’d like to talk a little bit more about how this type of care benefits our Monmouth County patients.

It’s kind of interesting to think about the language we use in healthcare. The word ‘holistic’ is defined as being concerned with whole systems, as opposed to individual parts. The word ‘healing’ has its roots in the early English and Germanic word ‘haelen,’ which means to ‘make whole.’ So technically, the phrase ‘holistic healing’ is kind of redundant.

Holistic practices revolve around the health of the whole person, with an understanding that all parts of the body are connected, both physically and mentally. To better illuminate how this works, let’s take a look at some of the holistic treatments offered at Monmouth Spine and Rehabilitation Center:


Chiropractic treatment is a perfect example of holistic care. Doctors of Chiropractic are specialists concerned with the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). Because the central nervous system is connected to and controls many systems of the body, chiropractic treatment that focuses on the total health of the spine is also focusing on the health of the entire body.

The type of chiropractic practiced in our Red Bank office is particularly relevant in a discussion of holistic care. In addition to traditional techniques, we incorporate a type of chiropractic known as Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP). CBP does not focus on individual spinal misalignments, but rather works with the goal of creating optimal structure and spinal alignment as a whole. This helps the body to resolve any issues or conditions, and helps patients experience greater overall health.

Physical Therapy

As part of the holistic, or whole, philosophy of care, we also incorporate physical therapy. Physical therapy focuses on helping patients rediscover their full capacity for movement and flexibility. It also incorporates techniques such as massage therapy, which not only treats the physical self but additionally benefits the mental health of many patients.


The same is true for acupuncture. For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has been focusing on the concept of holistic healing. The practice has thrived throughout time simply because a holistic approach is generally the most effective. We know that acupuncture promotes better overall physical and mental health by concentrating on relieving energy imbalances and blockages.
