Houston Chiropractor Practice 1960 West Chiropractic Sees Increases in Neck and Back Tension Due to Stress

1960 West Chiropractic Takes Natural Approach to Alleviating Pain

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - Maintaining a stress-free existence in today's culture is virtually impossible. With massive layoffs affecting the job market, lengthy commutes in rush hour traffic and dwindling returns on 401-Ks and investments, many Houstonians are highly stressed.

Houston chiropractor Dr. Karen Thomason of 1960 West Chiropractic has noted an increase in patients experiencing headaches as well as neck and back pain. Individuals seeking Houston chiropractic treatment are less likely to rely on medication and more amenable to considering treatment options that will reduce the pain. Dr. Thomason and her staff perform a thorough evaluation for each patient experiencing headaches and tension in their neck, back and shoulders. If pain is caused by stress, options for relief might include massage, stretching and even meditation. Therapy is established for each patient and chiropractic adjustments to the neck can relieve tension and pain.

"We take the natural approach with treatment to release the tension in the muscles," said Dr. Thomason. "The body has an innate intelligence and wants to help itself. Our goal is to reduce the pain without the use of drugs or need for surgery."

At 1960 West Chiropractic there is a high regard on establishing a one-on-one relationship with each patient and understanding the interaction between the muscular, nervous, and skeletal system. Dr. Thomason has comforted more than one patient who, when faced with the pressure of today's world, had a good cry during their chiropractic treatment.

While traditional medical care and surgery may be the only option for certain conditions, Dr. Thomason and her staff have seen many patients benefit from their natural approach.

"Quite simply, we try to set the body in motion to heal itself," states Dr. Thomason.
