Why Wellness Risk Management?
Okay, a fair question. What I saw in the clinical field over many years helping people manage pain and Wellness, was a stark need people had for help in managing and maintaining Wellness. This Wellness was connected to individual therapeutic needs at that time. However, the observation was that there was a pattern that could be identified. Needs were common and various failures were common.

When properly motivated people would do everything asked of them, 'when in clinical crisis'. When healing occurred quickly due to people listening and doing what they were asked, people were very happy, they healed quickly. But, they would fall back to their old ways and cycle once again into crisis. The next commonality was that this repeated cycle was difficult to break.

What was happening at their homes was setting people up for a return to pain and disability. There was a need for ongoing help, but in the Self-Help field. So, I returned to the books, anatomy, physiology, nutrition and the sciences.

In Wellness Risk Management we are not dealing with things that need to be proven but rather, we are dealing with things already proven and needing to be delivered. That is what we at Wellness Risk Management are all about. One might say it is the delivery of compliance.

Standards for multidimensional Wellness have a long science history. Getting that science into the community on a long-term REGULAR basis is one of our business goals. First though, we need to know what a client’s individual goals and what their needs are. Our unique Wellness Risk Measurement program accomplishes this. We put numbers to Wellness. After that measurement process, Wellness Risk Management Workshops are offered. Workshops are where the real work takes place.

See a nice one page description of Wellness Risk Management in pdf format.

Wellness is individual and personal. One person’s Wellness needs are not necessarily another person’s Wellness needs in spite of commonalities. However, people fall into general categories with regard to what they need. Nutrition and Exercise are common categories most everyone knows about already.

Knowing and doing though, are two quite different things. Workshops are needed to get-the-doing-done.

In addition to these two pillars there are three other pillars of Wellness. 

Spinal Health
Back pain is the scourge of the human race. One cannot avoid the science behind Spinal Health and also gain multi dimensional Wellness. We include spinal health because of the very large costs to the community and workforce with regard to spinal issues, not to mention the tremendous emotional costs associated with poor spinal health. In Canada, the low back pain-related estimate of the medical costs ranges between 6 and 12 billion dollars annually.

Up to 85 % of working people can expect to experience low back pain in their lifetime. This is an astounding fact.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9762743

 

Rest & Relaxation 
In addition to spinal Health, Rest & Relaxation, which includes sleep, are very important to Wellness and cannot be ignored. Proper time for healing is a must. Proper time for winding down is one key to a happy life.

Attitude & Perspective
Closing out the five pillars of Wellness which we call Dr. Ouellette’s Five Pillars of Optimal Health Secrets are Attitude & Perspective in life. We all need an outlook that is positive and uplifting. We have to fight the negative animal instincts within us and continuously bring ourselves to the human thinking end of behaviour. There is much science in this field.

Overall Wellness
Obtaining this overall Wellness in all five Pillars is a lifelong goal which requires both measurement and management. We have that covered. It is just a matter of getting going at it.

In the process of measuring Wellness Risk, and putting numbers to Wellness, we found a number of important clinical measures that can help various types of health care workers, including medical doctors. We found it helpful to include a measurement for self-help pain relief as well.

As we have said, Wellness Risk Management workshops are where the work gets done. We have five workshop subdivisions in our Wellness Risk Management model.

Special Note               

Wellness Risk Management is applied research at the science end of the scale.

Knowing Wellness isn't getting Wellness. Doing Wellness is applying the science. We show how that is done.

What Kind of Diseases Are Reduced with Wellness Risk Management?

All chronic diseases are reduced with multidimensional Wellness strategies because of the multidimensional nature of those strategies. Acute diseases are reduced, again because of the multidimensional nature of those strategies.

All organs and systems in the body benefit by reducing Wellness Risk. When the body moves toward optimal health by applying those optimal health secrets which science has discovered, then all parts of the body benefit. We live longer and happier due to less suffering from disease. We perform better at work, better at our recreation pursuits, and better at our interrelationship pursuits too.

Applying the rules laid out in our workshop workbooks and completing all action plan items indicated in the Wellness Risk Management Report of Findings is a ticket to better Health and better living.

It is not particularly easy to get there because we have to fight natural human tendencies that lead us toward disease and suffering.

Most people need help of one type or another. Delivering that help is what Wellness Risk Management is all about.
