But It Was Just A Fender Bender!

Every 60 seconds a car accident happens. That’s a whopping 5.25 million crashes a year. Often we qualify the severity of a car accident by the damage we visibly see on a vehicle. Just think about it, traffic gets backed up on our interstates while passing cars assess the damage of a recent car accident. We rarely think about the severity of damage that occurs to the persons involved in an accident unless we see an ambulance speeding by. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. 

Individuals who are in especially severe car accidents will tell you almost instantly of the neck, head and back pain they encounter from the impact of an accident, and seek some sort of treatment almost immediately. What’s more dangerous than these outright injuries and devastating accidents though, are the insidious misalignments and ligament damage that most people don’t give a thought to until weeks, months and years later when they experience loss of mobility and chronic pain from these incidents that we call “just fender benders”. 

You see, your car doesn’t have to show life-changing damage for there to be internal life-changing injury, and while we can change cars and replace auto parts, we can’t exactly do the same with our bodies. 

The impact of an auto effects your internal frame. Period. It doesn’t matter whether or not the car was declared totaled or insurance wasn’t even involved. You can’t get around the force your body underwent and the impact of your body’s self-correcting mechanisms. What you can do, is measure the degree of injury your accident caused, definitively, and treat it effectively. All it takes is a little help from A Spinal Ligament Specialist— A specialist will be able to read specialized x-rays with expert precision to identify problems before they immobilize you andbegin to implode into life-long pain. Don’t wait for a small, treatable injury to make itself a part of your everyday life. It’s not just a fender bender.

Are You In Control of Your Off Switch?

Are You In Control of Your Off Switch?

Migraines find an involuntary off-switch when they creep into their victims’ lives. 25 million Americans will search to find a remedy to their migraine affliction this year, and pray to take back control of their on and off switch. While there is much debate out there about what the most effective treatment for migraines is, what we can tell you is solely medicating is not the solution we need to be promoting. 

Here’s why: Now more than ever in human history, we are seeing an epidemic of Opioid addiction and abuse. Do you know what Opioids are used for? Pain relief, especially when it comes to severe headaches and migraines. So when we just medicate the problem, we first and foremost are not healing, we’re just telling our brain to not feel the pain and symptoms of our problem, and we are teasing a dependence on the medication we are taking. You see, when a patient is solely medicating their migraines, they are trading one master for another, not freeing themselves from the pain. 

If you want to be truly free from the excruciating pain of migraines, you need to change the game from defensive to offensive. Did you know that most migraines originate from mis-alignments in the neck and spine? You just feel the effects of this misalignment in your temples and skull. And did you know that Chiropractic manipulation can not only re-align your vertebrae but also encourage healthy spinal structure, which has a direct effect on the frequency and intensity of migraines? Chiropractic care can help in the midst of a migraine and prevent new ones from shutting you down in the future. 

Take back control— don't let the pain and side effects of medication decide when you turn on and off.

The Smartest Kids on the Block

You’ve known it since you were in middle school: You put your trust in the people who know the most. After all, who else would you cheat off of in math class?! 

Well, we won’t say we were nerds back in grade school, but we're definitely an office full of them now. As one of, if not the most, learned chiropractors in Central Texas, Dr.Lesko sees knowledge as a irreplaceable tool and uses it to equip his patients with the facts they need to know, in order to take hold of a healthy lifestyle free of pain. 

With over 32 years of experience and a CV that reads more like a novel, our leading provider never settles for good enough. In fact, he’s made it his goal to bring the most cutting-edge treatments to his exam room each and every day. Which means, you never have to settle on your health. You’re guaranteed the best at CHRC. 

Meticulous schooling still not a convincing factor that our clinic leads the industry in Central Texas? Well then take it from numerous attorneys have been convinced. Our very own Dr.Lesko has been asked to testify as THE Subject Matter Expert on many cases where injuries have been disputed. Why? Because we work with the conviction that it isn't enough to recite the “right” answer— we want to show you the cold hard facts, the evidence, and lead the way for innovation. 

So if you’ve been fooled in the past to think the only way to pain-free was a road to medication and surgery, step on the brakes and turn around! Chiropractic offers research-based, FDA approved, proven treatment options that activate your own body’s ability to heal— but don’t take our word for it, we’ll show you the cold hard facts, and don’t worry we won’t rat you out if you cheat off of us.

The One Good thing that’s Come from the Drug Epidemic

The One Good thing that’s Come from the Drug Epidemic

Our pain-killers have begun killing us, but if you knew the facts, you may not be that surprised. 

Did you know on an average day, over 650,000 new prescriptions for opioids are given out, 3,900 people initiate non-medical use of prescription strength Opioids, and 78 are pronounced dead because of Opioid overdose… in the United States alone. You could call it an epidemic, and in fact it has been deemed one by experts. 

Opioids, which are prescription pain-killers that numb the nervous system to relieve pain, are one of the most addictive prescription drugs on the market today. Typically, users become dependent on medicating to mask the pain of past injuries and chronic illness that has not been able to be treated by doctors or FDA recommended treatment. Until now. 

Just this week, the FDA added a new recommend treatment regiment that will directly effect the outbreak of the Drug Epidemic: Chiropractic care. This new amendment will encourage MD’s to “prescribe” patients a visit to their local Chiro before they send them to the pharmacy. This alone is sure to cut down the growing opioid addictions and deaths—238 Million opioid prescription and 29k opioid deaths a year is too many, unnecessary. We’ve known for decades, Chiropractors are able to actually treat the root of pain and help the body heal its internal structure— drug free. We just wish the FDA would have endorsed Chiropractic as a first line of defense before the outbreak of opioids took over the health-world, but old politics are a thing of the past.

Don’t be sedated by the status quo, wake up to a life without concern about pills and prescriptions— take hold of real healing.

Are you getting ripped off?

Did you know that chronic pain has become a multi billion dollar industry? $60 Billion, to be exact– in the US alone. The medical and pharmaceutical fields are taking home a big fat pay check thanks to you agonizing pain and sleepless nights, but how are you feeling? Well by most stats, patients have been left with little healing and a lot of drugs to mask the aches. 

Global Industry Analysts claims that people want more efficient drugs and medical devices for pain treatment but they don't take into consideration the fact that they actually want to see results without the side effects. 

For far too long, patients have endured empty diagnosis and full pill bottles. Guess what, “Non-Specific Mechanical Neck/Back Pain” is not a diagnosis! Just because an MD cannot see a problem does not mean there is not one. These empty diagnosis stop now with the dawn of CRMA imaging. Now a spinal ligament specialist can begin to heal these elusive injuries, actually heal them. That means no more covering up nagging pain with prescriptions and Pinterest remedies. 

You can and will see results when you work with the right doctors, and at CHRC we have just that– come see us, there are no cover-ups or empty solutions in our office walls.

You'll leave feeling good.

We all know that work environment matters– an established office culture of purpose and respect is fuel for success. The same is true when it comes to where you choose to improve your health. The setting of your doctor’s office sets the tone for your rehabilitation, so why would you settle for a sub-par facility.

The level of comfort you feel during your treatment directly affects your bodies ability to heal. Now, we aren’t saying that rehab will be a piece of cake– improvement cannot be made if we never expand our comfort zone and stretch ourselves. Yet, it is important to feel at ease in your doctor's office. 

This sort of environment not only opens up lines of communication– which are essential when it comes to your healthcare– but also removes mental and emotional blocks that may be keeping you from achieving your optimal health. What do we mean? Whether we are conscious of it or not, many times if we are not in a safe and respectful environment, our mental facilities shut down for growth and in turn, affect our body’s achievement. 

At CHRC we care for our whole patient and strive to create an environment conducive for healing– but we are no spa– we get results with our cutting edge treatment plans. We promise you’ll leave feeling like part of the team, because at CHRC we are a team– all striving towards one goal: your health.

Rehab: An Athlete's Best Friend

Are you raising the next Michael Jordan? Or maybe you’re the athlete in the family, training to be the next Usain Bolt­– Whatever your sporting indulgence is, your body goes through a lot carrying you to success.

We often think of athletes as healthy individuals and in many ways they are, but they have a responsibility to take care of the body that they work so hard. This means working out and playing safely– knowing your limits, using correct forms, and taking care of injuries. It happens too often, that a “hot-shot” athlete thinks that they can work through and injury or accident and then ends up out for the rest of their season because of a blown out joint, compromised muscle, or the most dreaded- a broken bone.

We have seen far too many of these injuries walk through our office door, severe ones that could have been avoided if we had the chance to help earlier, and we are here to tell you: It’s not worth it. We promise that missing a few games to rehab a minor injury is a much easier pill to swallow than missing that championship game because of a broken body or living with haunting chronic pain stemming from an untreated injury.You wouldn't jump into a game without practicing and you shouldn't push your body into a situation its not equipped to handle– you'll be battling your own body instead of the opponent. 

Rehab is an athlete’s best friend. It keeps their body going and builds it stronger. It can be an encourager and coach when your body just wants to quit. It heals instead of just masking the problems beneath the skin. 

So play hard, but listen to your body. When things start getting a little rough– let us know. We'll work with you and get you giving 110% everyday again– because we know that's the only way our athletes play. We’re all on the same team here.

Breakthrough Pain.

We all live with aches and pains– that’s just how life is, right? NO! 

You don’t have to settle for a life filled with back aches and neck pain. You can start living a healthier life without the help of medication, surgery or some home-remedy you found on Pinterest. How? Well, let us explain.

Have you ever taken a hard fall? Been in a car accident? Gotten injured playing a sport? Most of us have, but were you ever treated for any sort of spinal ligament damage? Most likely not, because this sort of damage was very hard to medically diagnose– leaving us with chronic pain stemming from these forgotten accidents. That is, until now. 

With Spinal Kinetics’ Certified Experts, like our very own Dr.Lesko, haunting chronic pain can be alleviated. How you ask? With help from a break-through technique called Computer Assisted Radiographic Mensuration Analysis, we can now pinpoint the exact location of ligament damage and measure the level of articular alignment problems it has caused– giving us the tools to diagnose and treat your condition effectively and strategically, and giving you the answers and care you need.

Stop fooling around with placebo diagnosis. Our bodies don’t ache for no reason­—these pains are symptoms of an untreated injury and damage. A life lived with nagging discomfort, places a handicap on reaching your full potential. Don’t settle.
