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.

Neck pain. Back pain. Numbness. Sciatica. A wealth of bodily aches and pains can be soothed by chiropractic care at The Texan Wellness Center, a clinic helmed by Dr. Michael Dow.

He also gives supplementary advice on exercise and nutrition that can boost the effects of his treatments.

Element 5 Om’s owner and licensed acupuncturist Sheri Davidson focuses on making disparate parts work together as a whole. Sheri began her traditional Chinese medical studies in 2000, cultivating a passion for Japanese architecture and martial-arts along the way. Through her studies, Davidson has learned extensively in the fields of Acupuncture, moxibustion training, Chinese herbology, Tai Chi, and Qigong.
Eastern medicine emphasizes a theory of interconnectedness. For example, the lungs affect the kidneys, which in turn affect the heart. To this end, the clinic’s range of services works to bring clients’ bodies into balance, without standard medications or excessive seesaws. Acupuncture guides the body’s energy flow into more healthful patterns by inserting fine needles into certain meridian points on the body. This is believed to stimulate the flow of energy and can treat a variety of chronic medical conditions, along with decreasing chronic pain. During cupping treatments, gentle suction coaxes tight muscles into releasing tension and toxins, whereas one-on-one health-coaching sessions help clients learn to live a life that fosters wellness.
