“When I first came to the clinic I had sharp stabbinbg pains in my shoulder blades, bad headaches, bad neck pain and shoulder pain. After the chiropractic therapy and other therapies, I don’t have any of the stabbing pain anymore. I don’t have headaches near as often as I used to. And it’s just a world of difference! My pain level is probably 50% of what it was when I first came here.”

Training and License

Chiropractors are trained in a comprehensive four year curriculum and are licensed by the State of Texas.

Treatment Protocol

Chiropractors diagnose and treat patients with health problems related to the spine as well as shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, ankle and foot joints. Like other health practitioners, chiropractors follow a standard routine to get information needed to diagnose and treat patients. They take the patient’s medical history; conduct physical, neurological and orthopedic examinations. X-rays, MRI and CT scans are important tools because of the chiropractor’s emphasis on the spine and its proper function.

Treatment Methods

Chiropractic care focuses on adjusting or manipulating a vertebra or joint to restore optimal motion and function of that joint. We accomplish this by using various gentle techniques according to the tolerance of the patient. We also use adjunctive therapies such as myofascial release technique, massage, ultrasound, electric-interferential muscle stimulation, Laser infrared light, rehab- cardiovascular exercises and activities.

A Word about Spinal Decompression Therapy

There are certain conditions that require more than manipulation. Spinal decompression is dynamic tractioning of the cervical or lumbar spine so as to relieve pressure on the discs and spinal nerves. Decompression is aimed primarily at reducing the size of a bulging disc that is pressing on the adjacent nerve that may be causing severe radiating pain into the arm or leg. It is also used for many other problems such as degenerative disc disease, sciatica, facet syndrome, cervical whiplash and muscle tension headaches. Patients have avoided neck and back surgery with decompression therapy. So, consult with one of our doctors before you choose surgery.
