  • My Philosophy
  • How I help
  • History & Education

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine is based upon the principle that the human body possesses self-healing/self-regulating mechanisms that are the source of true healing.

As an osteopathic physician, I understand how all the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. This special training in the neuromusculoskeletal system allows me to better understand how that system influences the condition of all other body systems.

Being able to identify conditions and treat them using osteopathic manipulative treatment encourages the body’s natural tendency toward health and self-healing. The focus in treatment, therefore, goes beyond simple spinal alignment, to dealing directly with the abnormal body physiology using an array of direct and indirect techniques. My goal is to get you better so that you don’t have to see me.

A Trained Osteopathic Doctor in Texas Ready to Help You

Your pain and your traumas are unique to you. However, what brings people to our site is usually one of three types of patient .

  • Infants/Children –  You might be surprised to know that colic, reflux, difficulty breastfeeding, misshapen heads, and preference to look to one side can be caused from birth trauma.   
  • Pregnancy – Are you looking for an alternative to chiropractic to address your pain and swelling.  Maybe you have been told this is normal and have become accustomed to “deal with it”.
  • Adults – Are you experiencing some form of pain preventing you from being active and mobile?  Maybe you are an athlete looking to get back in the game faster, prevent surgery, or recover faster without medication. 

If any of those sound like you, follow the link to read more and book an introductory consultation.  We have a range of osteopathic treatments that have helped patients improve their lives.

Of course, you might not feel like you fit into any of those categories – or more than one.  If that is the case, give us a call, and we will be glad to answer any questions you might have, and to schedule an appointment.
