Greeting once again from your friends here at south Austin’s TexStar Chiropractic.

Studies have found that about half of all expectant mothers will develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies. This is especially true during late pregnancy, when the baby’s head presses down on a woman’s back, legs and buttocks, irritating her sciatic nerve.

Chiro Treatment – AC Recommended Alternative to Opioid Treatment for Spine and Neck Pain

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 17, 2017
In previous posts, we informed you of the close bond that we share with the Austin medical community as more and more medical doctors recommend nonpharmacological (drug free) chiropractic treatment for patients with back and spine pain. The reason medical doctors turn to the chiropractic community for patient treatment relates to their crystal clear understanding of the opioid epidemic and the opioid-related health risk that their patients face. They understand that with every opioid prescription there is an associated potential pathway to drug addiction. The American College of Physicians (ACA), a highly regarded physicians group in the United States, issued......Read More

Chiropractic Spine and Neck Health Prevention - Investing in Your Back and Neck

Darren Kincaid - Monday, April 24, 2017
Have you ever heard the term "a pound of cure is worth an ounce of prevention"? In the health care world we use this  expression to mean that with a small amount of care before a problem or symptom appears you can avoid the necessity of a lot of care or treatment once symptoms do appear.

The kinds of issues that chiropractors specialize in treating don't generally produce any noticeable symptoms when they initially show up. Small misalignment in......Read More
