When a medical practice is awarded multiple Best Of Denton County awards in the categories of Physical Medicine and Functional Medicine, and lands in the top three for best Chiropractic Practice, Regenerative Medicine Practice, and Wellness Studio, we take notice. The Back & Body Clinic in Lewisville garnered all that this year, plus a 4.97 rating in online reviews by their patients.They did it by providing patients with a true medical home where they can receive the wellness services they need all under one roof from medical providers who collaborate on their care.
Dr. Matthew Gilbert began his chiropractic practice ten years ago in Lewisville. It grew so rapidly that five years later, he welcomed multiple chiropractors to better serve his growing population of chiropractic patients.
“At the time, I saw a real need in the community for more integrated care,” Dr. Gilbert said. “I was seeing patients for back pain who were also seeing someone else for another complaint and perhaps a third doctor as their primary care provider. But the different doctors weren’t communicating with one another. I imagined an integrated practice where care was highly personalized, and all providers were collaborating on what’s best for the patient.”
Dr. Gilbert then partnered with a board-certified family medicine doctor and a nurse practitioner to provide family and physical medicine care to better serve patients. Then, at the beginning of this year, Dr. Gilbert joined the network of Southwestern Health Resources, a partnership between Texas Health Resources and UT Southwestern Medical Center, making The Back & Body Clinic a multi-disciplinary primary care medical clinic.
In March, they moved into a brand new state-of-the-art 4,300-square-foot facility designed to encourage collaboration among providers. Now, patients receive everything from well-check physicals, medication management, rehabilitation services, chiropractic care, and regenerative medicine under one roof. Here’s how it works.
“When a new patient comes to see us, they first meet with the primary care provider and receive any tests they need,” Dr. Gilbert said. “Then we have a daily team meeting where we present all new cases and formulate a comprehensive treatment plan unique to each individual. This system gives every patient the benefit of multiple doctors discussing and planning their care. Our goal is a complete treatment plan that won’t just cover up pain, but restore health in order to avoid surgery, reduce—or eliminate—the need for pharmaceutical drugs, and get patients back to optimum wellness as fast as possible.”
The office includes on-site digital X-rays, diagnostic ultrasound technology, and spinal decompression therapy. It offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, therapeutic injections, blood work, and a medically supervised weight-loss program. But most importantly, it offers doctors who work together to determine the root cause of your problem to help people of all ages get back on their feet and stay there as quickly and naturally as possible.
