Digital radiography is fast, safe, and accurate, permitting our chiropractors to complete more work quicker and with less expense. Digital x-rays allow us to quickly identify areas where there are misalignments (vertebral subluxations). Detailed results can be shared with patients and help to explain how treatment will be executed. Patients may even take x-ray results with them on a DVD for later review or to show others.
Some of the benefits of digital x-rays include:
- Patients are exposed to 90% less radiation than
- Quality – Our chiropractors can easily magnify images
and highlight areas of interest which helps with diagnosis and treatment
- Portable – digital x-rays are easy to share via email
or other electronic means for easy viewing by other healthcare professionals
When joint misalignment exists, tissues in the area of the misalignment are stretched, resulting in inhibition or weakening of adjacent muscles. Extremity adjustment involves finding these misaligned joints and weakened muscles and resolving the misalignment so that normal muscles strength will be restored and pain and inflammation will be
reduced or eliminated.
Kinesio Tape is a special tape developed by a Japanese Chiropractor. It helps in supporting a chiropractic adjustment by supporting joints and muscles while removing swelling from parts of the body that are inflamed.
Traditional athletic tape restricts the movement of joints and affected muscles. Several layers of athletic tape are wrapped around the affected area. This applies quite a bit of pressure, which restricts the flow of blood and body fluids. This is the reason why athletic tape is normally placed immediately prior to an activity and removed shortly
Kinesio Taping is quite different, it does not restrict the range of motion so that the body can heal its own muscular system biomechanically. The tape is quite thin and consists of a wave like glue pattern that lets the skin be virtually lifted from the area upon which it is placed. Kinesio tape massages the area gently during movement, allows the free flow of blood and body fluids, while providing joint stability. Some of the benefits of Kinesio Taping Include:
- Helps Chiropractic adjustments to hold by supporting the affected area gently
- Reduces pain by promoting the release of the body’s natural pain relievers called endorphins
- Reduces swelling by improving the flow of body fluids
- Improves muscle function by decreasing over contraction and muscle fatigue

Carpal Tunnel Decompression
Surgery is the customary
medical approach to carpal tunnel syndrome treatment. In addition to being
expensive and a risk to overall health, surgery focuses on a single aspect of
this disorder, which is the median nerve. The surgical goal is to relieve pressure
that is on the median nerve. Nevertheless, in three fourths of surgical
interventions the symptoms return within two years subsequent to surgery.
Recent research on this disorder
has indicated that the arm and wrist pain it causes is symptomatic of issues
in other parts of the body. Results indicate that the arm and wrist pain is
related to the misalignment of ligaments, bones, and neck muscles.
These results serve to confirm
what chiropractors have been aware of for a long time. The origin of carpal
tunnel pain resides in the upper spine, rather than the wrist and arm.
The methods chiropractors
use to treat carpal tunnel are far less invasive than surgery. Initially, we will
attempt to relieve the pain and discomfort in the arm and wrist., then our
focus will be on the neck.
The treatment of carpal
tunnel syndrome can involve a variety of approaches, including trigger point
therapy, spinal adjustment, home exercise, and injury avoidance.
Our holistic and natural
methods of treating this disorder been affirmed by evidence based research, to
have benefits for numerous carpal tunnel sufferers.
Acupuncture has been advantageous to our patients since it is very safe if performed by one of our trained professionals. It’s used for the treatment of a range of conditions from fibromyalgia to carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. Acupuncture strengthens the immune system, relieves insomnia, improves respiratory health
and reduces stress while helping our patients regain their emotional balance.
Acupuncture has proven to be a meaningful approach in treating musculoskeletal and even internal visceral
conditions and it represents a holistic approach which has generated a terrific clinical response. With acupuncture, spinal manipulation can be substituted or augmented with acupuncture point stimulation at the vertebral level. This technique has been employed by chiropractors for years, with excellent clinical response. It is a very fast, clinically significant, and easy to apply approach, that has no equals.
Chronic pain is pain that persists for a prolonged period of time that is ongoing. It is not responsive to conventional techniques for pain management. Our chiropractors treat patients with chronic pain. We use an array of non-surgical treatments, that may include spinal manipulation, to address symptomatic pain, such as muscle tension and inflammation.
We will perform some tests and a physical examine to diagnose the root cause of your pain. After diagnosis, we’ll formulate a treatment plan which could include spinal manipulation, acupuncture, extremity adjustment, therapeutic exercise, kinesio taping, and vitamin and nutritional counseling.
Balance For Vertigo
Many people experience vertigo at some time during their life. Vertigo, aka Eply's Maneuver, is often described as a dizziness, or a sensation of spinning of yourself or your immediate environment spinning around you. Frequently, people are able to describe the direction they are spinning, others can’t identify direction or the direction changes from time to time.
Frequently, vertigo results from some level of dysfunction of the vestibular system which resides in the inner ear. There are a number of conditions that may cause vertigo which include Meniere’s disease, a fistula,
proxismal positional vertigo, vestibular neuronitis, canal dehiscence, and others. Injuries to portions of the nervous system and brainstem that process vestibular stimuli may also be causes.
If there is an imbalance or injury to a nervous system structure that receives and/or interprets vestibular nerve impulses, vertigo may result. Additional symptoms, like ringing in your ear could also be present.
Treatments frequently involve rehabilitation of the vestibular system that are designed to balance the system.
Our chiropractors have received comprehensive training in the treatment of vestibular disorders and have been treating these conditions for years with a great deal of success.
Vitamin And Nutrition Counseling
We give specific recommendations with regard to food choice and nutritional supplements that will promote our patient’s optimal health.
Studies have demonstrated that nutritional imbalances and poor diet are contributors to many health problems such as cancer, stroke, diabetes, heart disease and others. Our chiropractors are specifically educated in nutritional and diet counseling. We can create a nutritional program that is designed with your specific needs in mind that will help you to minimize the risk of developing any of these afflictions and will help you to maintain optimal health.
UIL Required School
Many schools require that students have a University Interscholastic League physical prior to participating in any athletic programs. We administer UIL physicals should you need one to participate in athletics during the school year.
The Department of Transportation has a requirement that drivers have periodic physicals to ensure they can safely operate a motor vehicle. DOT Physicals are completed right next door at West Texas Injury Protection (WTIP).
The FMCSA –
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has specific rules on what must be
included in a DOT physical. To make the process more straightforward, we have provided
an overview on which documentation you should bring with you to the exam and
what can be expected.
If Possible Bring These Items To Your DOT Physical:
- Medication List including dosages
- Glasses or contacts if you use them
- Your Last Medical Exam
