HOUSTON CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES
Our chiropractic adjustments are not just "rack and crack." We adjust with a purpose. We start with an examination, take any necessary x-rays, and then come up with a plan that's safe and effective for you. Our care also includes at-home recommendations to make sure you get lasting results and won't need frequent adjustments in order to maintain your spine long-term. We see our chiropractic care with you as a team effort.
We utilize several chiropractic techniques and can adapt your care to the style of chiropractic you are seeking while still delivering fantastic results. We will also perform follow-up x-rays so you can see the changes that have occurred. How do you know if chiropractic care worked for you? We'll show you!
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Patients experiencing such problems as facet syndrome, sciatica, Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, spinal stenosis, or bulging and herniated discs will benefit from the use of Spinal Decompression Therapy. We had a very high success rate in helping all of these problems in the past with just chiropractic care, but still felt like there was more we could do for those we couldn't help.
Patients not responding to chiropractic adjustments would be referred for pain management, epidural steroid injections, or even surgery. While drugs are helpful in dealing with symptoms, they don't fix anything and that goes directly against what we stand for as an office. We also strive to help patients avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary.
Spinal decompression treatments can be hugely helpful with the conditions we listed, or just as a way of decompressing your spine (especially if you regularly lift heavy weights). Even better, this decompression table allows us to help more severe cases and prevent them from more invasive methods of pain relief.
Cervical Decompression Therapy
Patients experiencing such problems as cervical facet syndrome, bulging or herniated discs, or numbness & tingling going down the arms will benefit from the use of Cervical Decompression Therapy.
Spinal decompression treatments can be hugely helpful with the conditions we listed, or just as a way of decompressing your spine (especially if you sit at a computer all day). This therapy allows us to help more severe cases and prevent them from more invasive methods of pain relief. Our goal continues to be to help patients avoid drugs and surgery.
Is Cervical Decompression Therapy right for you? If you're experiencing neck pain (especially chronic neck pain) or have symptoms that radiate into your upper extremities, this is an incredible complement and addition to your chiropractic care program.
Knee Decompression Therapy
Patients experiencing chronic knee pain, especially "bone on bone" knee problems will benefit from knee decompression therapy. Like the name indicates, the Knee on Trac will decompress the knee and help to create more space in the joint.
The Knee on Trac will pull your knee space open using up to 20 lbs of force. The machine will gently pull your lower leg and then come back about 25% to create a "pumping" action that will help to lubricate and introduce nutrition and blood flow to the affected area.
Combined with a knee stabilizing adjustment and muscle work, the amount of knee pain can be reduced dramatically and quickly. Works best when combined with laser or PEMF therapy. (Galleria Location Only)
Pulsed Electro Magnet Field Therapy (PEMF)
The science behind PEMF is a methodology that’s been around for over a hundred years. It’s used by practitioners to mitigate pain, stimulate immune support, improve performance, and enhance brain function.
All of your cells operate with an electrical charge, and low voltage leads to chronic pain. PEMF therapy addresses cellular charge and helps to support healing for a variety of conditions related to your spine and extremities. We generally add this therapy to patients with chronic pain or in speeding up the healing in knee, hip, and shoulder problems.
PEMF Therapy is painless and results are typically felt in just a few sessions. If PEMF is right for you, we will recommend it as a part of your care program. Ask your chiropractor if this can help you with your health goals. (Galleria Location Only)
Laser therapy is a non-thermal (doesn't cause heating) process utilizing light sources to stimulate photo-physical events within the body. We utilize the Multi Radiance laser that is applied with a hand-held emitter to distribute three light wavelengths. This is often used to relieve pain and assist in rehabilitation of many types of injuries.
The laser is high power and the safety of Class 1, with no risk of overheating tissue. The Multi Radiance laser has (NHN) FDA Clearance. Laser therapy is safe to use throughout the body, but we will focus the laser on the area of pain or injury.
Laser therapy can be added to any chiropractic care plan to assist in the healing process. Treatments take approximately 5 - 10 minutes and are completely painless. (Galleria Location Only)
Being able to efficiently and conveniently take the right spinal x-rays is very important to your chiropractic care. We need to be able to make sure there's nothing happening inside of you that would stop us from treating you. We can also modify your care based on what we find on radiographic examination.
Our x-rays are taken weight-bearing (standing) so that we can see how your spine is working against gravity. We look for any signs of fracture or pathology and then take measurements to help us determine the best way to adjust you to get the fastest and best possible results.
Leg Length Discrepancy Evaluation
Anatomical leg length is one of the most commonly overlooked issues causing your spinal pain and misalignment. Getting the correct measurement and then making the correction will go a long way in helping you achieve lasting long-term results.
If you ignore this aspect of your spinal condition, your symptoms may return again and again until you finally get an accurate measurement and correct the leg length difference. A simple shoe insert can provide immediate relief and allow you to hold your adjustments for a long time.
Many patients have been surprised to find out their legs are different lengths, and find that the correction explains so much as to why they've been dealing with the same problems over and over again. Leg length issues may take the form of headaches, neck pain, back pain, and one side that keeps having the problem with a hip, knee, or ankle.
