Lifestyle Wellness

What is lifestyle wellness?

Optimal wellness means more than just being free of disease. Optimal wellness requires your active participation with a focus on activities and lifestyle choices that prevent illness and promote health to improve your quality of life.

Spine Technology and Rehabilitation is dedicated to helping you live your best life. The medical team there offers a lifestyle wellness program so that you can get the evaluation and guidance you need to live a long, healthy, and active life.

What can I expect during a lifestyle wellness evaluation?

Dr. Fortin is an experienced physician who prides himself on his ability to find and fix the root cause of your health issues and concerns. When you come to the office for a lifestyle wellness evaluation, you can expect a thorough exam.

During your evaluation, Dr. Fortin asks detailed questions about your health, medical history, family history, diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits. He also orders sophisticated testing to better understand your health and health risks.

Your individualized testing can include:

  • Gastrointestinal study
  • Testing for nutritional deficiencies and toxicities
  • Food sensitivity testing
  • Nutrition testing


The tests’ purposes are to identify the deficiencies or toxicities that cause oxidative stress.  This is a health condition that reflects an unhealthy imbalance of antioxidants that protect your cells and tissues with the free radicals that destroy them.

Oxidative stress increases your risk of developing chronic health conditions like cancer and heart disease.

After your testing, Dr. Fortin provides you with an interpretive printout of your results.

What are lifestyle wellness treatments?

Dr. Fortin creates individualized lifestyle wellness plans that specifically address the underlying problems that damage your health or prevent you from reaching top-notch well-being.

He uses a well-proven nutritional goal setting and coaching technique to help you make the necessary changes to achieve your wellness aims.

Your lifestyle wellness treatment plan can include:

  • Graded nutrition program with time and goal markers
  • Systematic therapeutic exercise program
  • Long-term wellness program


To support your lifestyle wellness goals, Spine Technology and Rehabilitation can include other health disciplines in your plan. These could consist of physical therapy, Pilates and tai chi classes, and personal training.

Your lifestyle wellness program is an ongoing plan, and Dr. Fortin schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. He can also repeat your diagnostic testing to make sure your plan is working.
