Who We Help

At Whole Family Chiropractors, all members of the family are welcome to benefit from our natural approach to health care. From babies to seniors, we enjoy working with everyone who is seeking to live a healthier life. We see many different types of patients:

  • The Athlete
  • The Dancer
  • The Grandparent
  • The Kids
  • The Office Potato
  • The Soccer Mom

The Athlete

Dr. Paris has worked to address the specific needs of hundreds of athletes and performers who seek to attain and maintain peak performance. Musicians, golfers, acrobats, rowers, dancers and more, whether amateur or professional, can reach optimum function and work towards avoiding injury. Several techniques are used which can be helpful for those performing specific functions with their body that aren’t always symmetrical (think of a dentist or hygienist). Dr. Paris has addressed ergonomics with everyone from surgeons to hair stylists to help them work with less stress on the body.

The Dancer

As a dancer herself, and as a chiropractor who worked with the San Francisco Ballet and many other performing arts organizations, Dr. Paris understands a dancer’s unique stresses. Specific stretches and exercises that require certain postures or that keep your feet working are emphasized while balancing out the symmetry in your body. We find that the dancers who seek our help can dance for longer periods with increased mobility and function.

The Grandparents

Dr. Paris is committed to keeping bodies moving as they age. Consistent movement in a joint protects it from fusing—a major cause of the serious physical restrictions that can come with age. While forceful adjusting can be painful on older (and younger) patients, Dr. Paris performs several low- and non-force, comfortable techniques that are extremely effective and allow aging bodies to move more freely. Whole Family Chiropractic accepts Medicare as well as most major insurance.

The Kids

It’s true that not all kids necessarily need chiropractic care regularly. Children who run and play, get plenty of sleep, play sports and don’t carry heavy backpacks are probably as full of good health as they seem. But chiropractic has been shown to be highly effective adjunctive therapy for some allergies, asthma, sports injuries, ear infections and even growing pains. While not actually treating an ear infection, for example, chiropractic facilitates the bodies own healing processes. We also perform AISD school sports participation physicals. Of course we also perform scoliosis screening.

Dr. Paris’s daughter Margo was scheduled to have tubes inserted into her ears for chronic ear infections and hearing loss. Instead, she adjusted Margo daily and made dietary changes. (no dairy) Three weeks later, the audiologist confirmed that Margo was fine and had full hearing. Since then, Dr. Paris has become increasingly interested in pediatric care. Both of her kids are adjusted weekly, and sometimes more if they have fallen down while playing, been studying too long or have been carrying a heavier backpack than normal. We find that our pediatric patients tell their parents when they want to go to the chiropractor and eagerly get on the table foe treatment.

Dr. Paris is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and continually keeps up with the latest literature.

If you’d like to find out more, Dr. Paris is available to speak to schools, parents and teams about preventing injury and children’s physical limitations of which the adults around them need to be aware.

The Office Potato

Many of us have jobs requiring hours of sitting before a computer, often complemented by hobbies that involve more sitting such as surfing the internet or watching television. Inactivity can cause nearly as much strain on the body as overuse, yet we often overlook the problems caused by today’s increasingly sedentary lifestyle.

Simple movement is critical for a healthy and physically comfortable life. We’re dedicated to helping you by adding passive movement to your day that will lubricate the joints and tone and stretch the muscles. We will never judge lifestyle or try to impose change where you don’t want it. Let us help you feel the best, whatever lifestyle you lead!

The Soccer Mom

As mothers, Dr. Paris and Dr. Fisher understand the specific physical demands of having kids; from car seats to soccer. Studies have shown that more than 99% of moms carry their young children on their left hip, a biological adaptation researchers believe, that places the heart of the mother close to that of the child. But this can also lead to spinal strain, asymmetrical muscle development, pain and physical limitations.

Other typical care-taking activities such as bending, stooping, lifting and spinning in circles to scramble eggs while also pouring milk, put as much pressure on the spine over time as intense athletic training. It’s important that parents stretch appropriately around tasks such as lifting a child into a car seat and that the parent gets proper care to counteract the effects of repetitive, asymmetrical strain. We use techniques to address the stresses of daily parenting tasks and help you approach parenting as a specific exercise requiring conditioning.
