Welcome to Comprehensive Wellness Center of Gwinnett
The practice of Dr. Richard Guerreso, R.Ph./ DC, voted "Best of Gwinnett" in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Our philosophy is to educate you about your body, how it functions and how to heal & strengthen it. Knowledge is empowering and transforming! The more we understand our bodies and the mechanisms that cause injuries or chronic disease, the more control we have in getting better.
The human body was created to be self-healing given the right opportunity and environment. Pain management means enabling the healing process by minimizing nerve interference through adjustments of the spine and extremities, while embracing proper nutrition, exercise, sleep and a positive mental attitude. To establish and maintain a lifetime of wellness, the entire body and a person's lifestyle are examined. We identify the source of health-related problems and appropriate treatments for all types of ailments such as:
- Body aches and pains
- Obesity or difficulty gaining weight
- Lack of energy or hyperactivity
- Insomnia or excessive sleepiness
- Constipation or irritable bowel
- Much more
We work both directly and indirectly with the nervous system. Every organ, tissue and cell is controlled by nerve impulses traveling from the brain to all parts of the body. Nerves make all things possible:
- To swallow.
- To transmit all sensations to the brain.
- All sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing.
- To maintain balance and regulate the body temperature at 98.6° F.
- To maintain the body's systems including glandular, reproductive, digestive, eliminative, endocrine, respiratory and circulatory systems.
- To control vital functions including the liver, lungs, spleen, pancreas, gall bladder, bowels and kidneys.
For over 20 years, our approach to good health and healing is the spine. The spine houses and protects the spinal cord, which is the switchboard or fuse box of the nervous system and our bodies. Nerves leave the spinal cord through small openings between movable spinal bones called vertebrae. When vertebrae become misaligned they interfere with the normal function of these nerves. This misalignment causes dysfunction which can result in numbness, tingling or burning sensations, spasms, pain or discomfort known as a"Subluxation".
The objective of our pain management process is to determine the exact, degree of spinal misalignment producing the subluxation. Proper specific gentle adjustments are given to remove these subluxations and thus remove the major cause of pain and malfunction.
Our holistic, common sense approach to health allows millions of Americans to manage these discomforts, reverse chronic pain and regain or maintain total body health and wellness. This is why Comprehensive Wellness Center has become one of the largest and most respected practices in Gwinnett County and has received the prestigious designation "Center of Excellence", as well as one of "America's Top Chiropractors" by the Consumers' Research Council of America in Washington DC.
