HealthSource's team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and physical trainers aid patients in shedding bodily ailments through personalized Action Plans. Staff members work closely with patients to identify sources of pain such as misaligned vertebrae, pinched nerves, arthritis, and office chairs made out of magma. Treatment Plans may prescribe daily exercises as well as spinal adjustments performed by machines or the sure hands of chiropractors raised by machines. During rehabilitation sessions, knowledgeable trainers help patients overcome athletic and trauma-related injury with exercises to reestablish muscle strength and flexibility.
Doctor Gary Lipkin and his trained staff at Longview Chiropractic Center have been helping patients live ache-free since 1984. Their premier therapy is spinal-decompression therapy, which relieves chronic pain caused by pinched nerves, herniated disks, and bulging disks. Dr. Lipkin can complement the therapeutic sessions with other techniques such as gentle spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy.
When it comes to the integration of Eastern and Western medicine, Dr. Carlos Chapa might as well be the poster child. He spent nearly a decade learning and practicing Western medicine, first as a medic in the U.S. Marines, then as a civilian paramedic. When he took a sabbatical from his budding medical career to study abroad in China, Dr. Chapa's early interest in natural cures—stemming from visits to his grandmother's small town in Mexico, where she acted as the town healer—took root in the form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He delved head-first into this new passion, earning his master's degree and then his PhD in Oriental Medicine from Dongguk University in South Korea, which led him to study at one of the world's first hospitals that integrated Eastern and Western principles.
Today, Dr. Chapa brings this integrative approach to clients at Valley Ranch Acupuncture. As a licensed acupuncturist who has treated thousands of patients, he uses this 5,000 year old technique to decrease pain, boost energy, and affect hormone levels in clients, all with the aim of treating the root cause of the issues and not only focusing only on the symptoms. True to his forward-thinking style, Dr. Chapa may even swap out the hair-thin, virtually painless acupuncture needles for a laser. The low-energy beam is used to target the same locations and produce the same results as acupuncture needles, but require no penetration of the skin.
With spinal manipulations, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling in their arsenal, the staff of physicians and therapists at Draughon Chiropractic aim to help their clients achieve their physical bests. Technological advances––including cold-laser therapy, neuromuscular treatments, and ultrasound treatments––tend to spines, and an onsite massage clinic provides clients with therapies that can help boost their ability to recover from injury or tackle eating or sleeping disorders.
Spread out across three locations in the Shreveport area, The Joint, the Chiropractic Place's chiropractors have worked to improve the lifestyles and health of their patients for more than a decade. Focused on providing convenient, accessible care, The Joint offers month-to-month membership plans, wherein clients can attend walk-in appointments weekly to get quick adjustments and keep spines in working order. After dropping in for an initial visit for a consultation and exam, clients can drop in sans appointment to see the chiropractor and discuss their prospects for a career in limbo dancing.
