The team at Fort Bend Corrective Health Center understands how hard it can be to stick to a wellness plan—especially when goals or expectations are set unreasonably high. That’s why they aim to make it easy. They use positive reinforcement and attainable goals to help clients shed pounds through nutrition counseling and weight-loss programs. Lagging bodies are also kept in tiptop shape with hormone therapy, B12 shots, and regular chiropractic visits. During spinal exams, the chiropractor uncovers any misalignments before developing a custom treatment plan, which may include a series of adjustments, massage therapy, and daily scoldings to straighten spines out.
"My purpose is to help as many people possible to get well naturally. It's what fuels my fire," expounds Dr. Derek Maxson, founder of Maxson Chiropractic and Wellness. The embers of his chiropractic passion were first kindled in childhood; suffering from year-round allergies and sinus problems and living through a "fog of medication," Maxson was elated to finally find holistic relief through chiropractic care. After earning his doctorate of chiropractic from Parker University College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Dr. Maxson began his mission to free others from the burdensome haze of chronic pain through gentle spinal adjustments and other natural methods. Each day in his office, he assesses spinal health with an array of techniques and tools, including x-rays that can help locate fractures, identify long-term spinal degeneration, and tailor form-fitting skeleton costumes.
To augment his pain-relieving adjustments with a dose of relaxation, Dr. Maxon directs patients to his office's licensed massage therapist, Natalie Tyler, a self-described "fixer" who nonetheless believes in the body's natural ability to heal itself. The therapeutic kneads of Natalie and the other licensed massage therapists can help jump-start the healing process and strengthen the immune system while freeing the mind from daily stressors.
