Dr. Dana McKirahan, DC, PA sets backs straight using a variety of techniques at Lordex Spine Institute of Conroe. For some patients, he recommends sessions on the Lordex Lumbar Spine System, which helps ease lower back and leg pain with inverted or horizontal decompression and strengthening exercises. For others, he prescribes traditional adjustments and manipulations to treat misaligned bones and joints, instead of gluing one?s hands to monkey bars and hanging in the playground all day. Massages can be either therapeutic or relaxing, serving to treat chronic conditions or simply erase tension.

Woodlands Integrative Medicine Associates' certified medical staff helps to contour and fine-tune physiques through comprehensive health care. Since opening in 2004, the center has tightened and toned bodies through cellulite-reducing Endermologie and VelaShape II treatments approved by the FDA. The center also helps to relieve chronic pain by realigning clients' energy with acupuncture or correcting posture with chiropractic care that follows the Lordex system. Developed after 15 years of research, the Lordex system targets lumbar muscles by placing the spinal joint in traction and gently decompressing nerves and disks in the lower back, allowing an increase of circulation to the aching areas and back tattoos.
Whether you're looking for a sticking or a cracking, the initial consultation ($110) at The Witter Center will have you on your way to relief in the time it takes a sitcom character to get stuck in a hilarious case of mistaken identity. After a discussion of health, concerns, hopes, and dreams, you'll decide which of the treatment options better suits your body-needs. If you require them, x-rays ($110 each) of the afflicted area will be taken to ensure that proper treatment is given and more serious conditions are ruled out. Opt for a chiropractic adjustment ($53) to relieve pain associated with lower back fatigue, injuries, spinal misalignment, or subluxation. Or head east to needle your aches into submission with an acupuncture session ($50). The ancient Chinese tradition uses hair-thin needles inserted at specific points to stimulate the body and relieve pain from a wide range of discomfortable afflictions.
For Dr. Stinnett, the biggest draw for chiropractic is that it gives him a way to help patients lead healthier lives without the use of drugs. After graduating from Texas Chiropractic College in 1995, he opened his own practice?Stinnett Chiropractic. Today, he aligns spines and soothes aches with a variety of chiropractic and massage services. Though he steers clear of the pills and chemicals of internal medicine, he's not opposed to technology. He uses x-rays and thermal scans taken in his on-premise facilities to help analyze the cause of a patients symptoms and inform them of the course of care. Once he and a patient have decided on a process, he carries out the treatments over multiple visits, providing simple homework for patients to do between appointments, such as noticing their posture or giving all their vertebrae nick-names.
