It’s easy to judge our health based on the presence or absence of pain or symptoms. This can be misleading when it comes to the spine, but it also applies to many parts of your body. Think of going to the dentist to get a check-up only to find out there is a cavity (aka rotten bone in your mouth), meanwhile you were oblivious to it because there was no pain. How many of you have had blood tested and been told by the M.D. that you now have Type 2 Diabetes? It was found by a blood test and there were probably no symptoms to give you a warning. There are so many other examples from arthritis and back problems to cancer and digestive issues where feeling a symptom was not part of the underlying condition.
Here’s some living proof for you that the spine is all connected and that one area affects the other areas of the spine. This week we had a patient come into our chiropractic office looking for help with her low back pain
and hip pain. So there were symptoms in the low back, but there was no neck pain or mid back pain to speak of, but as always, we did a full evaluation and examined her entire spine. When we took her spinal x-rays there were minor findings in her low back, but we found scoliosis in her mid back! She was surprised at how significant the curve is and that her pain is in a different area. When posture starts to change or the spine begins to curve the entire spine is under more stress and pressure. This can cause back pain, pinched nerves resulting in feelings of sciatica, carpal tunnel, numbness and tingling and many unnoticed side effects. The spinal cord and nerves are the path of communication for the brain and when they begin to have interference along the pathways then the effects are felt wherever those nerves control. For example, let’s say the lumbar nerves are experiencing pressure as a result of spinal misalignment. The future effects could range from feeling sciatica down the leg and muscle weakness or even digestive issues or reproductive organ dysfunction. Many of the effects are not felt as low back pain or other noticeable symptoms, but rather as a decrease in function. These will not show up as symptoms but will affect the overall health and wellness of your body. Chiropractic
care is designed to relieve this stress and pressure to the nerves thus allowing them to function at 100% so you can be healthy and that your body can function like it was designed to do. This is why we encourage you to not just come in for back pain or headaches (symptoms) but to make chiropractic care part of your health and wellness lifestyle to make sure you maintain good health and are able to stay active throughout your life. We are honored to help so many in and around the Kyle TX area with chiropractic care in their time of pain or car accident
, sports injury and many other mishaps, but we want to help them to also get to live a true wellness

So you’ve got a pinched nerve!? Many suffer from sciatica or similar nerve like symptoms and wonder what is going on. Nerve symptoms typically show as numbness, tingling, weakness and sensitivity to hot or cold. The pressure on the nerve can often be found from misalignment in the lower spine and require chiropractic adjustments to fix the cause of the symptom and relieve the pain. We have helped many people with this problem. Come find out if you are a candidate for a non-invasive, natural health solution at our chiropractic and wellness center! 512-405-0400 https://www.browningfamilychiropractic.com
Essential Oils Promote Wellness! ~Nutrition and Supplements near Kyle TX
Essential oils have become a hot topic lately and many have started to experiment with them as a natural remedy. It is very empowering for parents to take some of the health and wellness needs of the family into your own hands and not have to run to the pediatrician every time a stuffy nose pops up!
We have been using essential oils for the last few years in our family. At first we dabbled here and there trying them out on ourselves and then on our children. I was pleasantly surprised early on at how quickly they often helped restore health. Now, the essential oils make up almost all of our medicine cabinet! Our “health”care entails regular chiropractic adjustments and essential oils, and that’s pretty much it! We all get these at the first hint of not feeling well to speed up the body’s ability to recover!
As a Chiropractor, I’m used to seeing most people react after a symptom has been nagging for a while. That’s why most new patients come in with neck pain, back pain, whiplash, headaches, sciatica, etc, etc, etc. Sometimes the problem has been ongoing for months or even years without seeing a chiropractor. Other times, the patient has tried pain medication, spinal injections, pain management, physical therapy, acupuncture and every other treatment but to no avail. Sometimes a patient comes in wanting to seek wellness care and prevention of more serious problems down the road.
Essential oils and chiropractic care are amazing tools to regain health once it is lost. My goal, however, is to help more people in Kyle, Buda, and San Marcos TX to take care of their health before it is gone and to seek wellness. If you are looking for a way to keep you or your kids healthy, call us at Browning Family Chiropractic & Wellness at 512-405-0400. We are located in Plum Creek and would love to serve you. Mention this blog post and you can take advantage of a free chiropractic consultation to see if you are a good candidate for treatment. You can also sign up for a free 1 on 1 wellness consultation with our certified wellness consultant, Brooke.

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
