Some believe that that medical doctors just treat symptoms with medication. And some believe that chiropractors just treat back pain. While both can be true, there is so much more that integrated chiropractic and medical care can achieve. Because chiropractors help to remove pressure from the nervous system, they can also influence many other conditions. And because our current system of medical healthcare delivery is symptom based, rather than patient based, integrated care is the best way for you and your family to get comprehensive care you deserve.


Metroplex Wellness

Healthcare quality in America is at an all time low. Doctors are over worked, over booked, and do not have the time to give patients the depth of care of years gone by. Patient's today often have more complex health issues, with referrals to specialists, and no one managing the integration of the patient's treatments. Oftentimes doctors from different specialties prescribe medications, without knowing or understanding the medications and treatments other doctors are prescribing for the same patient!

As both a Chiropractor and a Doctor of Medicine, Dr. Thwaites is able to bridge the gap. The benefits that chiropractors provide can be seen in a variety of health conditions. Even relatively healthy people can see improvements. Most of us put our bodies though a lot. Regular adjustments can help to restore balance within the body.

Your spine is designed to protect your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is responsible for moving information from your brain to the rest of your body. Your spine is the protective case for one of the most important parts of your body, and a Southlake chiropractor can help you maintain it.

Working with Metroplex Wellness
will make a difference in your health.

Chiropractic Explained

If you are looking for an explanation of how chiropractic care works this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect muscle and bone structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.

That's a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients in Southlake report improvement in body function. This is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat disease, but it does suggest that some people will see improvements in conditions outside the treatment area.

The Education of a Chiropractor

Most patients don't realize how much education chiropractors in Southlake have. Chiropractors are held to some of the most intense educational standards of any health field. In fact their education standards are very comparable to that of a medical doctor.

After completing a strong emphasis of basic sciences in college, chiropractors attend a four year chiropractic college. This means that chiropractors are primary care physicians. In other words you don't have to have a referral to see a chiropractor.
