The Joint Chiropractic
The Joint Chiropractic is a corporate wellness organization with individualized community practices that is enjoying growing popularity due to their convenience and excellent reputation. Gayland and Stacey Lee own six locations of The Joint with plans to open several more soon. The Lees talked about what inspired them to become owners.
“We have a passion for wellness and care,” said Stacey. “We’ve been chiropractic patients ourselves since we were children. We love the business and what it stands for.” Gayland and Stacey Lee are always looking for doctors that are just as passionate about healthcare and healing as they are. They knew when they found their clinical directors and teams for the Cinco Ranch and Katy locations they had made the right choice.
VICENTE RAMIREZ, DC, BS – CINCO RANCH
Dr. Vicente Ramirez, Clinical Director of Cinco Ranch, has been working in chiropractic care for over a decade and with The Joint since 2012. He had a positive experience with a chiropractor years ago, which inspired him to pursue it as a career.
“I went to see a chiropractic intern at Texas Chiropractic College,” said Dr. Ramirez. “I was impressed with his bedside manner, his concern for my health, and the adjustment I received. It convinced me to become a chiropractor.”
Dr. Ramirez attended Texas Chiropractic College where he obtained a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in human biology.
Dr. Ramirez explained that the convenience of The Joint is what drew him to practice there.
“I saw it as an opportunity to help more people than ever,” said Dr. Ramirez. “Every day brings new opportunities to help people who are experiencing pain and disability.”
One of the reasons Dr. Ramirez is passionate about chiropractic care is the healing that can be achieved in a short amount of time.
“The most rewarding part of my job is getting the opportunity to expose as many people as possible to the healing nature of chiropractic medicine,” said Dr. Ramirez. “Most patients begin to experience relief within a few visits.”
SOPHIA BEKIARIS, DC, DACNB – CINCO RANCH
Dr. Sophia Bekiaris has been with The Joint for a year and has been working in chiropractic care for nearly a decade. She talked about what drew her to the career.
“[I liked] the fact that I could make a change in someone’s life without invasive procedures and when all other avenues have been exhausted,” said Dr. Bekiaris.
Dr. Bekiaris attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She said The Joint stands out from many other facilities.
“At The Joint in Cinco Ranch we stay very busy because The Joint makes chiropractic care accessible to the masses,” said Dr. Bekiaris. “The unique structure of The Joint makes it possible for patients to simply walk in at any time and receive the care they are looking for without the hassle of scheduling an appointment.”
The care offered at The Joint can benefit patients of all ages. Dr. Bekiaris talked about a special experience she had with a patient of hers who was expecting a baby and how the care benefited her and her child.
“I especially love working with pregnant women,” said Dr. Bekiaris. “I recall a patient that was scheduled for a C-section, but after being adjusted she went into a quick and easy labor within two hours. She brought the baby by to visit me the following week.” DR. VICENTE

“Life is the expression of tone. In that sentence is the basic principle of chiropractic,” said Dr. Bangura. “My passion for chiropractic is knowing that our body has an innate, vital energy through the nervous system.”
Dr. Bangura attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She believes in overall wellness and not only treating her patients, but also helping them learn about their conditions so they can understand what their bodies are capable of.
“I feel it is my duty to not only replace displaced bones, but also teach patients, so that the physical and spiritual may enjoy health and happiness,” said Dr. Bangura. Seeing patients recover is a true joy for Dr. Bangura. The relief and happiness her patients feel after receiving treatment is her favorite part of her job.
