Thirty-Nine Weeks Pregnant and Feeling Much Better

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 09, 2020

Here’s another feel good story for all of us here at Buda’s TexStar Chiropractic. Below is a success story about how we helped Brittany, our patient with pregnancy-related upper and lower back pain. We encourage those of you out there who believe your pregnancy is contributing to neck and/or back pain to call and discuss the merits of prenatal and post-natal chiropractic care. Take a moment and listen to the testimonial below and know that Brittany is not alone in enjoying the therapeutic rewards of prenatal chiropractic treatment.

Hey guys, I am a patient here at TexStar Chiropractic. I came in here because I had a lot of upper back pain and lower back pain. I'm obviously very pregnant, I'm 39 weeks pregnant. I had heard wonderful things about chiropractic care, was a little nervous, but decided to give it a try. I've been seeing Dr. Woods for my last seven visits and I've had wonderful results. I have a lot more mobility in my lower body and lower back. Also the pain that was coming in from my upper back and around my side is gone. So I've been really impressed with the care and the services that I received here.

Pregnant and suffering neck and/or back pain? At TexStar Chiropractic here in Buda, we’re here for you. Give us a call!


LaDon’s Right-Side Pain Gone After Visiting TexStar Chiropractic - (Now in Buda)

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 02, 2020

Well, it took all of two chiropractic treatments with one of the docs now treating at TexStar Chiropractic (serving Kyle and Buda) to eliminate essentially all of LaDon’s pain. She came in with acute pain up and down the right side of her back. We utilized a number of treatment options to successfully address her pain. Take just a moment to hear from LaDon herself about her successful chiropractic treatment results.


Never accept pain as something that you simply must live with. Not all back pain gets better on its own. Often times the exact opposite occurs and conditions continue to worsen without treatment. Allow us the privilege to definitively assess the specific causes of your pain and then to confidently put you on the path to rapid recovery.


Buda’s Dr. Henry at TexStar Chiropractic Made Her Feel Ten Years Younger

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Today we’re going to share April’s story, a typical story that all of us here at Buda’s TexStar Chiropractic love to go home and tell our families about.  April suffered lower back injuries in a bad auto accident. Like many, she procrastinated getting treatment thinking that ultimately her back would just fix itself. Well it didn’t, but just listen to April tell you in her own words how immediately after her first chiropractic lower back treatment here at TexStar, her pain subsided. Now she feels ten years younger!  

Hi, my name is April and I just got through the treatment here at Dr. Henry’s place, TexStar Chiropractic (now in Austin and Buda, Texas. And I feel fabulous. I feel about ten years younger. It’s incredible, really, the moment you get up from the table after his chiropractic treatment. I believe anyone would feel so much better, it’s just that I didn’t expect it. I’m so relieved at how much better I feel. I feel more energized, the pain level has lessened, so it is so worth it to come here. And what brought me here was an auto accident. I jammed my spine up, and I just got tired of thinking it would feel better, when it didn’t. 

You too can start your journey toward reduced (and often totally eliminated) spine and neck pain, call TexStar Chiropractic Buda today!

Once “Eight-to-Nine-Level” Back Pain Decreasing Weekly

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 03, 2019

Meet our dear patient, Cynthia. She’s special to us but is actually a very typical patient of ours here at TexStar Chiropractic. Cynthia’s lower back pain is caused by the most common source of back pain….life. It is sadly common for people as young in spirit as Cynthia to begin to suffer congenital neck and spine pain rather early in life. But as you’ll hear from Cynthia, you don’t have to live with it.

Listen to Cynthia tell her story about how she once lived in agony due to her constant lower back she describes as being in the “8-9” pain range. However, celebrate her story along with us about how that pain is declining weekly due to the success of her lower back pain chiropractic care treatment here at Buda’s TexStar Chiro.

We’ll see you next week, Cynthia….in less pain than you are today!


Subluxation Defined

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 30, 2019
TexStar Chiropractic, Austin, TX

Here at our Buda Chiropractic care clinic, we take great pride in educating both our patients and the general public about neck and spine health. We’re proud of all of you for conducting your own research. We are thrilled to educate and answer your questions both within our clinic and our Buda & Kyle chiropractic blog itself. A recurring question that we answer is: “Just what is “subluxation” and how is it treated”?

When a vertebrae or other joint becomes misaligned or stops moving properly, it has historically been referred to in the chiropractic profession as a subluxation. These changes in normal joint biomechanics or “subluxations” can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. When a vertebrae is subluxated, these altered movement patterns begin to put pressure and cause irritation to the nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation and associated tissue irritation interferes with the normal nervous system pathways that allow for communication between the body and the brain. This is why you may feel like your there is pain in your leg or tingling in your hands even though there is nothing wrong with your leg or hands. The message is getting scrambled due to interference on the line.

As time goes by and a subluxation remains untreated, the spine and surrounding features such as discs begin to degenerate. This degeneration becomes more difficult to reverse as time goes by as the surrounding muscles, nerves and bones begin to adjust to the new shape. The body is an amazing machine. It will start to accommodate these changes by compensating in other areas. The longer this goes on, the more difficult it is and the longer it takes to restore normal function and health to the affected area.

How is subluxation treated? As you might expect it depends. It depends on your specific subluxation condition, the severity of your condition, and your overall physical condition. We very well may determine that a digital x-ray (accomplished right here in our Buda / Kyle chiropractic clinic) is required to identify the type and severity of your subluxation issues. Together, we will author and execute a chiropractic physical rehabilitation plan designed to steadily decrease your spine, neck, or joint pain while systematically improving your quality of life.

Physical Rehabilitation and Therapy

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 08, 2019
TexStar Chiropractic - Physical Rehabilitation and Therapy in Buda, Texas

In today’s blog post, we’d like to introduce you to the various types of chiropractic treatment services being offered here in our Buda chiropractic clinic. Essentially every service that we provide can be considered a sub-category of the physical rehabilitation of the back, neck, and spine. Below is a brief explanation and link to some of the more common chiropractic techniques that we employ on a daily basis. They can be employed singularly or in combination to rehabilitate physical impairments and disabilities that diminish quality of life:

Chiropractic Rehabilitation

The most common and well-known chiropractic treatments involve physical manipulation of the spine and joints. It is the most conservative (non-invasive) approach to address disorders of the neurological, skeletal, and muscular systems. Learn more about chiropractic physical manipulation here at our Buda clinic.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy involves the use of concentrated light energy to target damaged cells, reduce pain, and speed recovery of damaged cells. It is a painless and proven highly effective therapy applied to both acute and chronic conditions. Learn more about chiropractic cold laser therapy here at our Buda clinic.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy is designed to create negative pressures inside herniated or bulging discs which reduces abnormal pressure on spinal nerves. This is a highly effective way to reduce the pain associated with pinched nerves. The treatment sensation is that of a gentle stretch that is most often described as both pleasurable and relaxing. Learn more about spinal decompression therapy here at our Buda clinic.

Whole Body Vibration Therapy

Whole body vibration therapy is designed to reduce stress on ligaments, joints, and supportive tissues. The vibration stimulates muscle fibers, muscle cells, nerves, and increases blood oxygenation. Patients describe the treatment as both painless and exhilarating. Learn more about whole body vibration therapy here at our Buda clinic.

Balance and Posture Training

Poor posture is directly linked to compromised spinal health. Posture can be corrected by a strategic blend of targeted exercises and adjustments to the way one sits, stands, and lies. Patients report that their pain is systematically reduced via focused balance and posture improvement. Learn more about whole body vibration therapy here at our Buda clinic.

Knee Trac Mechanical Decompression

Knee pain is one of the most common complains that we address. We employ a patented system to separate the two main bones of the knee joint in order to reduce pain, increase function, and promote tissue healing. This treatment is used to treat arthritis, meniscus tears, joint degeneration, and a host of other degenerative conditions. Learn more about knee trak mechanical decompression therapy here at our Buda clinic.

Digital X-Ray Services

We are equipped and trained to employ the use of digital x-rays as required to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment plan. The use of X-Ray is supportive for the diagnoses of some conditions but not all. We employ the use of X-Ray technology only when it definitively contributes to condition diagnoses and assessment of treatment plan effectiveness. Learn more about digital X-Ray services here at our Buda clinic.

If you ever have any questions about your spinal health and/or the chronic or systemic pain that robs you of the quality of life that you deserve, then give us a call anytime. We are changing the quality of life for the better with comprehensive chiropractic care for our friends in Buda, Kyle, and beyond!


Ten Reasons You Need To Fix Your Posture

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 17, 2019
TexStar Chiropractic - Ten Reasons You Need To Fix Your Posture

Greetings from Buda’s TexStar Chiropractic providing you with rock solid reasons why you should take posture seriously. Most of us may not even be aware that we may have bad posture and that our bad posture can (and will) cause a wide range of negative effects on health. Balance and posture training is just one of the many chiropractic services that we offer here in Buda that are designed to relieve quality of life health issues like the ten discussed here today.

Have you ever watched a toddler sit cross-legged? They sit with their backs straight, and it feels natural to them. Most adults don’t follow the example of young children. We hunch while we walk, slump at our desks and crane our necks forward staring at our phones. This poor posture can hurt our health. These ten reasons are why you need to start fixing your poor posture today:

  1. It can cause tension headaches. Leaning forward with your head down and your neck slumped will strain your back and neck muscles. This tension can cause headaches, especially at the end of the day.

  2. It makes you tired. Slouching puts pressure on your lungs, so you aren’t able to breathe as deeply. The less oxygen you get into your body, the more tired and fatigued you will start to feel.

  3. It can make your gastrointestinal reflux worse. Your stomach and organs are all under pressure when you are leaning forward. This pressure can make your digestive system very unhappy, especially if you are already prone to digestive issues.

  4. It causes back pain. The strain of poor posture puts your spine out of alignment which can cause back and muscle pain. Your Doctor of Chiropractic can provide regular adjustments to realign your spine. Ask for help on correcting your posture, too.

  5. It increases your risk of cardiovascular disease. Poor posture can cause blood vessel constriction leading to blood clots and vein disorders. All of these issues can eventually turn into cardiovascular disease.

  6. It can cause pinched nerves. Have you ever pinched a nerve? It hurts. It can happen in any part of your body, and it can be difficult to relieve the pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help.

  7. It can increase knee pain. The misalignment of the spine that occurs from poor posture puts more pressure on your joints, especially your knees. If you have arthritis of the knee, it will gradually get worse over time. Your Doctor of Chiropractic can help to fix your alignment and relieve some of the pressure from your knees.

  8. It can ruin your mood. A 2014 Health Psychology report found that people who sat upright reported higher self-esteem, alertness, better mood and felt less fear. Sit up straight, and you’ll feel a little better.

  9. It can wreck your bite. Poor spinal alignment can misalign your jaw joints. This can change the way you bite down. It can cause jaw pain, teeth issues or temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ).

  10. It can affect your sexual function. Poor posture, while you are sitting, shortens and tightens your pelvic floor muscles. When these muscles start to get weak, it can affect your sexual performance and enjoyment.

These are just a few of the side effects of poor posture. As previously mentioned, we can help you address bad posture and the negative effect that bad posture is having on your quality of life. TexStar’s Doctors of Chiropractic will help keep your spine healthy with regular adjustments. As you progress in your treatment, you can correct bad posture and the effects it may have on your overall health. Sit, stand and walk straight to feel healthier! Contact us today!
