Call us today! 832-203-5884
Our focus at Green Chiropractic is rapid pain relief and getting you back to your regular activities as soon as possible—as a matter of fact, the evidence shows that the sooner you return to your usual daily activities the faster you will get better. Athletes and weekend warriors love us because we typically insist that you work out again at the next available opportunity. We want you to “test your machine” to see how well you really are. It’s easy to feel out of pain to sit on the couch and watch television, we want to know you’re out of pain to do whatever it is that you really want to do, from picking up your kids to Olympic lifting.
Back and neck pain are two of the top reasons for missing work. They are also contributing factors in preventing people from exercising, leading to muscle weaknesses that make it hard for the body to protect itself against injury. When headaches are added to the list we have three conditions that routinely affect our ability to lead pain-free lives. These three complaints are the main reasons people seek chiropractic care.
Fortunately, these conditions are as treatable as they are common, and much of what needs to be done you can do for yourself. At Green Chiropractic our priority is to teach you management strategies that don’t foster a dependence on any particular health care professional. After starting care you will likely be given a program of therapeutic exercise that will become a first line of defense against future bouts of pain.
We also provide nonsurgical treatment for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee, ankle, and shoulder pain.
Methods of Treatment
While chiropractic is typically associated with the “cracking” style of joint manipulation, there are many treatment methods employed in modern chiropractic offices. Ultimately, the method of treatment depends on the diagnosis of your condition, but Dr. Green utilizes the following methods:
- Joint manipulation
- Soft Tissue Therapy
- End Range Loading
- Therapeutic Exercise

Chiropractic today is a modern, evidence-based healing art for the non-surgical management of musculoskeletal complaints related to the spine and extremities. Chiropractors take a “whole person” approach and look for biomechanical imbalances that are the root of the problem of most chronic pain syndromes. Low back pain may come on suddenly, but there is usually an imbalance of some sort that, when left unchecked, can lead to pain. Correcting these imbalances as well as making diet and lifestyle modifications are the core of chiropractic treatment.
Typical complaints seen in chiropractic clinics include low back pain, neck pain, headaches, ankle sprains, hand and wrist pain, and injuries from auto accidents such as whiplash. Low back pain and neck pain are, without a doubt, the two most common complaints to be seen in chiropractic clinics. Chiropractors are trained to differentially diagnose these conditions, rule out any “red flags” that may warrant emergency attention, and treat accordingly.
