Can you explain the “holistic” and “integrative” approach of your providers?
At its simplest, “holistic” means “whole.” In healthcare, it describes treatment of the whole person. In other words, we take into account all the factors involved in your pain, not merely the pain itself. Similarly, integrative treatment is the bringing together of all the therapies and methods that will help you get out of pain (except for drugs or surgery).
What “innovative solutions” does Back Pain & Sciatica Center of Texas offer?
First and foremost, “innovative” describes our approach, not just some of the advanced therapies we use to help reduce and relieve different kinds of pain. For example, we combine an innovative method for treating neuropathy, Anodyne® Light Therapy, with nerve reeducation and physical, nutrition and diet therapies to achieve optimal outcomes. Basically, we do everything we can to relieve your pain, and this holistic perspective is itself innovative. Other innovative therapies include stem cell therapy and the use of platelet-rich plasma to speed healing for joint pain. And if new innovations come along that can help relieve pain, we’ll embrace those, as well.
Does Back Pain & Sciatica Center of Texas only treat spine pain?
Back Pain & Sciatica Center of Texas’ name may suggest that we only treat neck and back pain. In truth, we do treat these and have helped countless people suffering with spine pain get significant, lasting relief. But we treat more than just spine-related pain. A medical practice whose integrative, holistic approach includes chiropractic care, we provide innovative solutions for joint pain, neuropathy pain, and other kinds of pain. And we do it with dedication to doing everything that will work for each individual in our care.
Do I need a doctor’s referral to visit Back Pain & Sciatica Center of Texas?
In a word: no. You do not need a referral to see our innovative pain-relief practitioners. If you’re experiencing acute or chronic pain—such as joint pain, neuropathy pain or back or neck pain—just give us a call at 936-494-1222 or request an appointment via our online form.
How can I be confident in your providers?
Our practitioners are highly trained in today’s most advanced pain-treatment therapies and experienced in the physical/structural methods of resolving pain at its source. As a result, we have helped thousands of patients get relief and get back to what’s important: life. But don’t take our word for it. Read what prior patients have to say about our care, and take a look at our online reviews and overall rating.
Does insurance cover my care at Back Pain & Sciatica Center of Texas?
We do accept most PPO insurance—including BlueCross/BlueShied, UnitedHealthcare, Cigna, Aetna, Humana and more—for some services. However, insurance does not cover all the care we provide at Back Pain & Sciatica Center of Texas, as we use some methods that insurance companies have decided not to cover. Our focus is on resolving pain at its source using methods that work, which is a consideration independent from what insurance will or won’t cover. We will inform you which of the services you need are covered by your insurance. We also offer competitive pricing, offer third-party financing through CareCredit, accept most major credit cards, and offer a special new-patient price of $149 that includes the initial consultation, exam and X-rays (a $500 value!).
Can I expect one-size-fits-all care?
This is an emphatic “no way.” Your pain, like your health, is entirely unique to you. It’s true that one-size-fits-all treatment for pain exists, but our mission is effective care, which means individualized care. We strive to do whatever we can to give you the relief you seek so you can return to your active life. The first step in this effort is to understand exactly what that might be, and it’s different for you than for everyone else we treat. Then the next step is to tailor your treatment to your needs, from the therapies used to the duration of care and the timeline of follow-up.
