What is it?
Primary Care at Invictus focuses on Functional Medicine: the concept of identifying and addressing the root causes of a symptom or disease. Functional Medical Practitioners view the body as one integrated symptom, not separate collections of different issues. They treat the person as a whole, not just the symptoms.
Why is this important?
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of diseases or symptoms. Including both the patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership, shifts the traditional “disease-centered” focus to a more “patient-centered” approach. Spending time with their patients and listening to their ailments along with their histories allows practitioners to address each case individually to come up with a treatment plan specific to each patient.
