When patients come to our office, our concern is for their overall health, not just their present complaint. Of course, we pay special attention to their specific complaints, be we do so while addressing other issues before they become more serious. This approach to healthcare allows our patients to be proactive as opposed to reactive. We often recommend care beyond traditional chiropractic care to help each individual achieve their optimal health. Some of the services we recommend are available through our office while others are referred out. This includes things like massage therapy, acupuncture, nutrition counseling, nutritional supplement recommendations, personal training, orthotics and shoe fitting, emotional/spiritual counseling, and medical care.
Once a person has reached their maximum level of improvement from the care we provide, we typically recommend some regiment of maintenance care. Because our patients live with all kinds of stress, ongoing healthcare is needed to maintain their best health. Most people do not have anyone providing them this type of proactive care. We are one of the few resources offering ongoing accountability and recommendations to deal with day-to-day health challenges.
Nutrition Recommendations and Supplements
Wholesome nutrition plays a key role in attaining optimal health. While the chiropractic adjustments address your structural wellbeing, we also provide nutritional counseling and supplements for holistic health from the inside, out. We only recommend the highest quality whole-food supplements from world-renowned companies such as Standard Process and Mediherb which are only sold by health care professionals. For your convenience, we have many supplements in stock and can quickly order anything we do not carry.
Following the popular lifestyle of fast food, convenience eating, dining out, microwave meals, and boxed/bagged/canned foods is taking its toll on our bodies. We can either live that popular lifestyle and end up as obese and unhealthy as the majority, or we can choose the less traveled path that leads to health, wellness, and quality of life for a greater quantity of life. The choice is yours!
"You are what you eat" is an understatement… junk in, junk out. Focusing on cravings, convenience, or even "fat free" food options, as opposed to nutritional value, has left us with many undesirable symptoms. If you or your child are experiencing weight gain, gas, bloating, indigestion, reflux, constipation/diarrhea, unwanted weight loss, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, allergies, frequent colds/flu/infections, asthma, menstrual problems, urinary dysfunction, circulation issues, anxiety, depression, colic, behavioral problems, ADD/ADHD, (and the list goes on!) then look to making a serious change in your eating habits. Believe it or not, you can reverse a lot of the damage done to your body and relieve many of these symptoms through chiropractic care and proper nutrition.

Posture and Spinal Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings play a vital role in the diagnosis of important health information and can go a long way in identifying the steps that need to be taken for the patient's wellness. Our chiropractors provide free screenings at community events, health fairs, workplaces, fitness centers, shopping malls, etc. We have several different screening methods we use to check for posture and alignment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace. Call our clinic at 254-698-1600 and ask for Ursula.
Physical examinations are required for participation in most extracurricular activities in school. As licensed Doctors of Chiropractic, we are an approved provider of these physical examinations. The school physical consists of a medical history questionnaire and the physical examination. The questionnaire must be completed before the appointment by the student/athlete and parents; it is provided by the school or organization that is requesting the physical. The doctor will review the medical history and perform a thorough the physical examination. Both pages of the physical evaluation form (the medical history and the examination assessment) must be kept on file in the school office.
