Even though he strongly believes in chiropractic's ability to help almost anyone, Dr. Arthur Bradley wants to know for sure before he begins treatments. During consultations, he discusses the issue and performs thorough examinations of the spine, neck, and joints. If the issue is beyond the scope of his noninvasive, drug-free massages and adjustments, he refers patients to another doctor. But since his gentle adjustments, massages, and nutrition advice rely on the body's own self-healing capabilities, they can often help patients overcome pain, even in tandem with conventional medicine.
The human body is intricate, complex, and surprisingly fragile. It easily sustains injury from high impact events such as sports or auto accidents, or even the simple repetitive motions of a job. Hickory Creek Rehab and Chiropractic's Doctor of Chiropractic Noel Mairena specializes in identifying the root of such wounds, often hidden within layers of tissue and bone. He employs spinal adjustments, medical massage, and rehabilitative exercises, providing pain relief and encouraging the body to mend itself.
As a licensed and nationally-certified massage therapist, Timothy Flint draws on hundreds of training hours and embraces a holistic paradigm. This member of the Associate Bodywork & Massage Professionals listens intently to clients wishes before gently kneading their sore spots. His repertoire includes modalities such as medical-, sports-, and Eastern-massage techniques. He also helps clients manage chronic pain by setting their clocks and calendars back to before their affliction began.
At Lewisville Chiropractic, spines realign, muscle knots disentangle, and pain dissipates under Dr. Kelly Reed’s care—which includes chiropractic adjustments, nutritional counseling, and chiropractic exercise. The doctor doesn't do it alone, though. He often enlists a licensed massage therapist to knead away joint inflammation and pain and wrangle stress out of tightened tissue. The staffers at Lewisville Chiropractic Center speak both English and Spanish, though they only converse with spines in their native language—good posture.
Edward Tang was struck by how the slightest change in a patient’s symptoms could completely alter their medical diagnosis. The chiropractic doctor was visiting a clinic while attending The Medical University of Lodz in Poland, but this discovery made him readjust his approach to medicine by focusing on both the symptoms and his patients’ history.
Today, Dr. Tang serves as medical director at River Oaks Spine & Rehab Center, where he and his staff strive to aid patients by personalizing each of their therapeutic services. They customize their treatments with a variety of tools, including physical-rehab equipment, low-level laser beams, and pain-alleviating acupuncture needles. Licensed massage therapists offer muscle-manipulation aimed at reducing stress and improving circulation. The center also specializes in spinal decompression, a procedure that works to ease back and neck pain resulting from herniated disks or attending Halloween parties dressed as a slinky.
