Kyle TX Chiropractor Stepping Up For Wellness (Near Austin TX)

Kyle TX Chiropractor Stepping Up For Wellness (Near Austin TX)
The name of our office is Browning Family Chiropractic & Wellness because we don’t just believe in getting you out of pain, but in keeping you healthy for a long long time.  Most people look to come in because of back pain, neck pain, whiplash after a car accident or other aches and pains.
We are introducing a new line of wellness products for wellness and nutrition.  DoTerra is a complete line of nutritional supplements and essential oils.
My family was introduced to essential oils a few years ago.  At first I was very skeptical and did not think much of them.  Gradually we tried them out now and again.  We tried them on our kids and were surprised that they worked really well.  Over the years they have come to make up the vast majority of our medicine cabinet.  Today my family uses chiropractic and doTerra products as a first line of defense to get and stay healthy.
Some of the common reasons we use them are allergies, common cold, coughing, respiratory and sinus problems, ear infections, mood enhancement, even headaches.  They don’t have the negative side effects of over the counter drugs or prescription medication.
We will be having our first in-house workshop: Introduction to Essential Oils on Tuesday, November 4th @ 6:30pm.  We have a Certified Wholistic Health Coach, Carol Ann Guest that will be sharing how to help keep your family healthy using doTerra essential oils.  We will have a monthly workshop focusing on things like allergies, stress, common colds, flu, and more.  Feel free to call us for more information on the class at 512-405-0400.  or you can click on essential oils for more information

Chiropractic Care Can Fix Your Pain In The Neck! -Chiropractor Near San Marcos, TX

Chiropractic care can fix your pain in the neck! -near San Marcos, TX, located in Kyle, TX (Plum Creek)
Many people suffer with neck pain and search for pain relief.  Neck pain may contribute to migraine headaches, jaw pain (TMJ), tension, back pain, dizziness, numbness and tingling and other symptoms.  I have found that most people reach for a pill to get immediate pain relief.  Sometimes this quells the neck pain and associated symptoms for a  while, sometimes it doesn’t.
I believe the best form of pain relief is by finding the cause of it and then fixing it.  This is where chiropractic comes into play.  You may think of your chiropractor as a back pain doctor, but we aren’t actually treating the pain, we’re treating the person.  When the cause of the symptom…usually poor spinal alignment, dysfunctional spinal biomechanics, muscle imbalance, bad posture, nerve irritation or a pinched nerve.  Once the cause is identified and removed, the body no longer sends signals of dysfunction, i.e. neck pain, headache, dizziness, numbness, etc.  Symptoms are your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong…just like the check engine light in your car.  Ignoring these symptoms would be like putting a piece of tape over the check engine light and hoping nothing bad happens.  This process may play out for years until the proper chiropractic treatment resolves the problem.
In our office we treat the whole person with chiropractic care and other physiotherapies to relieve these symptoms and teach you how to maintain pain relief and live a healthier life!  If you are looking for a chiropractor in the San Marcos, Kyle, Buda, or Wimberley areas or just want to see if it can help you, give us a call at Browning Family Chiropractic & Wellness, located in the Plum Creek area of Kyle.  You can call at 512-405-0400 or visit us online at http://www.browningfamilychiropractic.com/    You can even request your appointment through our website at http://www.browningfamilychiropractic.com/make-an-appointment/

Chiropractors Are Not Just Back Pain Doctors! –Near San Marcos, TX

Chiropractors are not just back pain doctors! Browning Family Chiropractic & Wellness is located in Plum Creek (Kyle, TX).

 

Have you ever wondered if chiropractic can help you?

 

Many have had this question when they arrive for their new patient appointment.  Sometimes they have already tried pain medication, Tylenol, muscle relaxers, stretching, massage, pain management injections, and the list goes on to different treatments out there.  These may help to cover up symptoms and alleviate pain, but too often the cause is left undiagnosed and untreated.

 

Check this out….one week ago we had a teenage boy come into our chiropractic office with years of arm weakness, shoulder pain, numbness and tingling in the wrists, inability to use hands very much.  In fact, it caused pain to write with a pencil during school and he was unable to carry his instrument during marching band performances.  He had undergone all sorts of medication, seen the family doctor, neurologist, rheumatologist, and received multiple x-rays and MRIs. After a chiropractic examination and x-rays, some misalignment in the spine was apparent in the neck and upper back.  These are the areas where the nerves going down the arms and to the hands are located.  After 2 adjustments this young man already feels much better!  He was able to hold his own instrument during band competition and all without pain pills or medication.

 

Many believe chiropractic care is just for back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, muscle soreness and whiplash.  Although these are very common conditions we see, chiropractic is really about treating the whole person and bringing balance to the spine and entire body.  When this happens, the spinal cord and nerves can function optimally which often has side effects of better sleep, more energy, better digestion, reduced allergies and a stronger immune system.  These are many of the things we get to see happen daily.  In this young man’s case, it is a true pleasure to watch someone return to health!

Why I became a chiropractor! Helping those in Kyle, San Marcos, Buda TX

I was asked why I decided to become a chiropractor and wanted to write about it.  When I was in college I wanted to help people be healthy and live a wellness lifestyle, not just treat sickness.  Every chance I got to go job shadowing and speak to healthcare professionals and see what they did, it was always disappointing.  I saw medical doctors having to convince sick people to take their pills or giving them a new prescription to try and see how it worked.  It was an eye-opener and something that did not motivate me.  My professor invited her chiropractor into our class to tell about what he did and teach us about prevention and wellness.  I’ll have to admit that at first I thought what I’m sure some of our brand new patients think at first- that it’s kind of weird!  My parents then started to go to a chiropractor for the first time and saw great results with their back pain, neck pain and plantar fasciitis.  I decided to get a job with a local chiropractor and that is where I got to see the amazing results of chiropractic care all day every day while at work.  It didn’t take long to know that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.  Since then, I have never regretted going to chiropractic school and into practice.  My family and extended family have benefitted from getting regular adjustments, quality nutritional supplements and raising a healthy family naturally.

Most patients start coming in because of a pain…back pain, neck pain, headache, migraines, sciatica, shoulder pain, numbness, tingling, hip pain, rotator cuff, whiplash after a car accident, sports injury, etc!  But after feeling better, many continue with wellness care so that they stay better, but that is up to you. Our job is to tell you what’s wrong and if we can help you, it’s your job to decide if you want us to help and how much of the care you want.

If you are in the Kyle, Buda, or San Marcos TX area and want to see a chiropractor, give us a call at 512-405-0400.
