Weight loss information
Eating less and moving more are the basics of weight loss that lasts. For some people, prescription weight loss drugs may help. You'll still need to focus on diet and exercise while taking these drugs, and they're not for everyone.

Our Doctors usually prescribe them only if your BMI is 30 or higher, or if it's at least 27 and you have a condition that may be related to your weight, like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.

Here's what you should know about four of the most common prescription weight loss drugs: orlistat, Belviq, Contrave, phentermine, and Qsymia.

Before you get a weight loss drug prescription we will need to know your medical history. That includes any allergies or other conditions you have; medicines or supplements you take, (even if they're herbal or natural); and whether you're pregnant, breast-feeding, or planning to get pregnant soon.​

Custom Foot Orthotics:
There are many routine treatments for foot problems.  There are anti-inflammatory pills,  cortisone injections, pads, cushions, ointments and, of course, surgery.  All of these have temporary, pain-relieving effects. But, if you want the chance to permanently solve the problem, you must change the way your feet function on the ground. And the only way to do that is to use a true custom, biomechanical orthotic which are, Sole Supports.  Please go to our tab located at the top of the page to read more.

Chiropractic :
We like to think our Chiropractors are the best in Austin, and from patient feedback they seem to think so too.  They focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints, arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

 
Common questions

What is a trigger point injection?
Trigger points are focal areas of spasm and inflammation in skeletal muscle. The rhomboid and trapezius back muscles, located in the upper back and shoulder areas, are a common site of trigger points. In addition to the upper spine, trigger points can also occur in the low back or less commonly in the extremities.

Often there is a palpable nodule in the muscle where the trigger point is located. The area is tender, and frequently when pushed, pain radiates from the trigger point itself to an area around the trigger point. Trigger points commonly accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders such as fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, neck pain, and low back pain. They may also occur with tension headache and temporomandibular pain. Acute trauma or repetitive minor injury can lead to the development of trigger points.

A trigger point injection involves the injection of medication directly into the trigger point. Trigger point injections can be used to treat a number of conditions including fibromyalgia, tension headache, and myofascial pain syndrome.

What are Steroids?
Corticosteroids are a class of medications that are related to cortisone.  Cortisone is a naturally occurring corticosteroid hormone produced by your adrenal glands.

Where are Steroids (Cortisone) Injected?
Steroids can be injected directly into the joints (intra-articular) or around the joints (peri-articular) or tendons.

How do Steroid (Cortisone) Injections Work?
After injection, corticosteroids work to reduce inflammation (heat, redness, swelling, & pain) in and around the joint.  As a result you should feel less pain, swelling, stiffness and warmth and be able to function a little easier.

Why are Steroids (Cortisone) Injected Locally?
A steroid injection into or around the joint is an effective way to reduce inflammation in or around a single joint.  The goal is to deliver the medication directly to the site where it is needed aiming to reduce the need for systemic treatment (pills).


What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.
