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.
As a certified pain-management practitioner, Doctor of Chiropractic Donovan May welcomes clients young and old into his clinic for personalized chiropractic care. Meetings with the doc begin with a consultation and exam to determine possible causes of maladies such as chronic back or neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches. Next, Dr. May prescribes a series of treatments that may include adjustments, massage, or sleeping on a bed of marshmallows. Though he is adept at handling many kinds of pain, Dr. May specializes in sport-related injuries.
UNITED Tae Kwon Do's group classes aren't really about punching and kicking. Sure, students work to master self-defense techniques, but they also focus on topics such as confidence and respect. The conditioning and reaction drills also help to build lean muscle and serve as an effective form of stress management. In this way, UNITED Tae Kwon Do's sessions benefit all types of students, whether they're kids or adults, beginners or more seasoned martial artists. The trained instructors also teach private lessons that adhere to personal goals, such as preparing a student for an upcoming black belt test.
These programs didn't develop overnight. UNITED Tae Kwon Do has been honing them for more than three decades, long before martial-arts uniforms became a red-carpet fashion trend. The educators have expanded into multiple locations throughout the Houston area and show no signs of stopping.
