Dr. Chris Doyle once had a patient come into Planet Health with an aching neck that would not quit. Everyday pain treatments, such as heat pads and ibuprofen, didn't make a difference, and a series of chiropractic adjustments with the doctor brought little relief. Realizing the true problem at hand, Dr. Doyle ordered custom orthotics to correct her flat feet, and within a week, the neck pain was gone.
Dr. Doyle acknowledges that most people see each part of the body in isolation, but people should instead see the body as an interconnected unit. An imbalance in one part affects another seemingly disparate part of the body. The spine is what connects the nervous system to the rest of the body, and when it is misaligned, it can affect the nerve impulses sent from that area, which in turn can affect the function of faraway organs and muscles. The general tenet of chiropractic care, he says, is that the body is fully capable of healing itself. His work just helps speed it along.
To this end, Planet Health’s services all focus on healing without the use of pharmaceuticals. Cold-laser therapy works to ameliorate inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. During chiropractic massages, muscles shed tension and toxins to increase circulation and flexibility. Acupuncture sessions reroute bodily energy without the need to implant traffic signals below the skin’s surface.
Chiropractic care helped rehabilitate Dr. Joel Duchon, D.C. when he was in a car accident as a teenager. The experience inspired him to study the practice, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from University of Maryland, College Park. At Webster Laser Like Lipo, Dr. Duchon taps into his extensive training to administer services including peripheral neuropathy, which addresses numbness and tingling sensations, and spinal decompression therapy, which ameliorates spinal pain better than a WD-40 epidural.
Because of licensed massage therapist Jalaine Hunter, it’s possible some astronaut felt more relaxed, calm, and collected during a stressful re-entry. That’s because two out of her five years of experience has been spent administering massages for NASA. Today, she draws from that experience and six types of massage, such as Swedish, hot stone, and trigger-point therapy, to pamper clients and untie their painful muscle knots.
