Sherman Oaks Chiropractor Announces New Online Resources for Natural Medicine

SHERMAN OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2012) - Hygiea Health and Wellness announced that the practice is providing patients with free, online resources for learning more about proactive whole body wellness care. The practice's new website,, features information on whole body health and natural pain management, including an interactive 3D spine simulator, blog and health articles. These free resources are designed to help patients learn more about Sherman Oaks natural medicine and alternative treatments for back pain, neck pain, allergies and natural weight loss.

Sherman Oaks chiropractor Dr. Robert Allan Schwartz announced that his practice is now providing the greater Los Angeles community with access to free wellness care information. The new website is targeted to patients struggling with pain and searching for alternatives to traditional medical care.

"We live in a society where nearly 20% of our GDP goes towards health care expenditures each year," said Dr. Schwartz. "Despite spending all this money, we still struggle with stress, anxiety, exhaustion, chronic illness and poor health. I believe that through proactive wellness care, we can help patients reclaim their lives and finally get healthy. Our new website helps explain this philosophy, using interactive tools like our Spine Simulator, blog and Community Content library."

The 3D Spine Simulator is designed to show how an accident injury can impact the entire body. For example, if an individual suffers a herniated disc in the lower back, this disc may compress surrounding nerves, causing radiating pain. The 3D Spine Simulator is designed to show patients how this pain and damage can spread through the body.

"Tools like the 3D Spine Simulator help patients visualize why correcting the underlying cause for pain is so important," said Dr. Schwartz. "Medication can temporarily relieve pain, but as the Spine Simulator shows, unless the underlying problem is treated, patients will continue to suffer."

The "Community Content" library and "Healthful Hints" library both contain articles explaining the science behind chiropractic care and natural medicine. The articles also incorporate tips on proper nutrition, reducing exposure to environmental toxins, and the importance of regular exercise for health. The articles are designed to provide a foundation of information to empower patients to take control of their health.

"Our center combines innovative and advanced chiropractic care with natural techniques for whole body health optimization," said Dr. Schwartz. "This revolutionary and proactive approach to health seeks to cleanse and protect the body from the toxins that bombard it each day. Through natural remedies, we keep the body strong, balanced and functioning at its optimal level. Our new website explains our approach to wellness and natural care."

Individuals who visit the website may also learn more about natural medicine through Dr. Schwartz's regular blog postings and "The First Step" article under the "About Us" tab.

Prospective patients may use the website's online appointment request form to schedule a visit.
