I have been coming to Integrative Sports and Wellness and love it. I have seen everyone from spine surgeons, physical therapists, and other muscle specialists and none of them have really been able to help me or lead me in the right direction. In just the few first weeks i went here my activity level completely changed and I can now play golf again pain free the way that i have always wanted to. I can play 18 holes now when i could only play 12-13 holes before my back completely gave out. I love the Kinesio Tape that Dr. Russ puts on my back. In fact that first week I was able to play 36 holes in 2 days and my back was barely even sore after my round. Treatments are definitely helping me! I look forward to the rest of my treatment plan. Thanks for giving my life back. Jake R. Lakeway Tx

Chiropractic History Print E-mail

 The word chiropractic is derived from Greek and means “ To Perform With The Hands”. Paintings from ancient Egypt and Greece have shown chiropractic was used thousand of years ago. However, David Palmer in the U.S did not find modern chiropractic until 1895.

Treatment is usually painless and contrary to popular beliefs seems completely normal and un-dramatic. Combining several factors including the patient’s examination history and/or x-rays, the doctor can make the decision on how to treat your problem.

Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperation power of the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system (the master system) and how the relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. Our main focus is about moving well, eating well, and thinking well.

The chiropractic belief on healing and health differs from the traditional medical view.  We know the body can maintain and heal itself in most cases, without chemicals or cutting out of certain tissues. We believe health is something that comes from within. Chiropractors  today have gained the education and technology to treat many problems, not just back and neck pain. Chiropractic is the most rapidly growing alternative health care specialty in the world.  Chiropractic can also, help you learn different health patterns teaching you things such as exercising, stretching the muscles, and eating a healthy diet.

During your chiropractic visits a detailed examination of the joints of the body will be performed  to determine if and where a functional misalignment exists. If misalignment exists and it is isolated the chiropractor can physically restore the joint to its optimal position and range of motion. This may take one, or more than likely a series of treatments to stabilize the condition. Once the problem has been relieved, we can help with prevention of similar problems by identifying certain patterns that challenges your body everyday. Maintaining proper nervous system function is vital to living a life with out limits and living an optimal lifestyle.
