Conditions We Treat
Living with chronic or acute pain can be debilitating. It not only puts stress on the patient, but their loved ones as well. The clinical team at Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas has the knowledge and expertise to treat a wide variety of injuries or diseases that cause pain. We employ the latest medical techniques in our treatments, such as ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, and high-precision trigger point therapy. Dr. Adams is the only chiropractor in Dallas with the extensive medical background of a family nurse practitioner and licensed provider, and treats the main conditions below:
Neck, Back, and Shoulder Pain
Your neck is the most sensitive and vulnerable part of your spine. Neck pain should never be left untreated—it’s vital to the overall function of your nervous system, posture, and movement. It’s common for neck pain to spread down your shoulders and back, as these are all connected to your spine. The most common reasons for neck pain are lifestyle—such as working a desk job or sitting for long periods of time—improper or bad posture, text neck (neck pain from constantly looking down at your phone, computer, or tablet), whiplash, sports injury, muscle strains such as sleeping on your stomach or using the wrong pillow, and stress.
Dr. Adams thoroughly tests your spine and its alignment, surrounding muscles, and musculoskeletal structure to pinpoint the cause of your neck, back, and shoulder pain. Once we determine the cause of your neck, back, and shoulder pain, Dr. Adams begins healing it with various chiropractic techniques including clinical massage therapy, ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, and trigger point therapy.
Knee, Joint, and Hip Pain
Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas specializes in treating chronic and acute knee, joint, and hip pain. While there are many different reasons for your knee, joint, and hip pain, Dr. Adams’s technique targets the source of the problem. Once we know what is causing your knee, joint, and hip pain, we develop a regimen of various chiropractic techniques resolve it.
Along with chiropractic techniques such as adjustments, your knee, joint, and hip pain is best reduced when combined with physical therapy—or physiotherapy. The most common reasons for knee, joint, and hip pain are incorrect or bad posture, overuse and abuse, injury, or misalignment. Dr. Adams brings your body back to its proper alignment, and strengthens the knee, joint, or hip’s surrounding muscles to further promote overall musculoskeletal health—which lasts you a lifetime.
Chiropractic care is incredibly effective in treating headaches. Chiropractic adjustments and alignments are an effective treatment option for both tension headaches and headaches that originate in your neck and base of your skull. What causes your headaches can be a number of different things including stress, lifestyle, poor posture, and daily screen time to name a few.
When the muscles in your scalp and neck contract—and stay contracted—it’s an incredibly painful sensation that can become worse if left untreated. The pain can surround your head and leave your muscles feeling constantly tight—especially at the base of your skull and forehead—and even spread down your neck, shoulders, and back.
Dr. Adams at Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas has over a decade of in-depth experience in treating headache pain with chiropractic care. He also uses modern and innovative techniques to pinpoint the cause of your tension or chronic headaches and uses a combination of chiropractic, clinical massage, and trigger point therapy to reduce—or eliminate—your headaches.

We treat whiplash-related inflammation and pain with gentle stretching and therapy, including state-of-the-art technological therapies such as ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation therapy. Depending on the severity of your whiplash, a number of treatments may be used including spinal manipulation, alignment, and adjustment, physiotherapy (physical therapy), trigger point therapy, and clinical massage therapy.

Many people believe that sciatica is a disorder—when really, sciatica is a symptom of a disorder. Since there are many disorders that cause sciatica, our first step is to find out what’s causing it. Dr. Adams’s diagnosis involves a thorough review your medical history, along with a physical and neurological examination. At Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas, our purpose is to help your body heal itself. Generally, this is based on the fact that restricted or dysfunctional spine movement leads to pain, reduced movement, and poor performance. For the most part, Sciatica is caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve. Some of the most common reasons for sciatic nerve pain are misaligned vertebrae, herniated discs (or slipped discs), pregnancy, childbirth, and even diabetes. Also, did you know constantly sitting on your wallet—or phone—in your back pocket contributes to sciatica and sciatic nerve pain?
Dr. Adams’s sciatica treatment plan consists of many different methods and therapies. The therapy we provide in Dallas depends on the actual cause of your sciatica. These may include ice/cold therapy, ultrasound therapy, TENS, and spinal adjustments. Here’s what these treatments consist of:
- Ice/Cold Therapy reduces inflammation and helps control pain.
- Ultrasound Therapy or heat therapy, created by sound waves that penetrate deep into soft tissues and muscles. Ultrasound therapy for sciatica increases your circulation, reduces muscle spasms, swelling, stiffness, and pain related to sciatica.
- TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) stimulates your muscles. The electrical current controls pain and reduces muscle spasms.
- Adjustments (Spinal Manipulation) Careful adjustments and spinal manipulation helps promote improved movement of your spine and realigns your vertebrae to their proper position. The chiropractic spinal adjustments and alignments reduces sciatica nerve pain, inflammation, and any muscle spasms. If you’re wondering about pain, adjustments and alignments are not painful. In fact, chiropractic spinal manipulation is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for sciatica and sciatic pain.

The most common parts of the body affected by tendonitis are the shoulder, elbow, wrist, thumb, hip, knee, and ankle.
