Chronic pain is more than an inconvenience. It’s a life-altering reality that steals time, joy and activity from millions of people living with it. If you or someone you love suffers from pain or a chronic ailment, chiropractic care can help. It is much more than just making pain disappear.
Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Meet the Doctors
Dr. Tara Parker—A graduate of Texas A&M University, Dr. Tara and her husband live in Pearland. She completed her chiropractic training at Texas Chiropractic College and then joined the staff at Sugar Mill Chiropractic. Dr. Tara performs comprehensive chiropractic services and has received special training in the Graston Technique as well as nonsurgical decompression. “Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a great tool for people who have low back or neck disc herniations,” said Dr. Tara. “Once we’ve looked at a patient’s MRI, we know if the Lordex decompression system is the best option. We’ve seen amazing results from patients suffering from herniated discs, degenerative joint disease, sciatica and facet syndrome. Each session lasts about an hour. The Lordex machine applies a gentle stretch to shrink the herniated disc, hydrate the spine and promote healing. After that, we will do some stretching and strengthening exercises to help stabilize the spine and give long lasting relief!”
With a baby girl due this spring, Dr. Tara has a special interest in families and helping them remain healthy so they can grow stronger together. “I really enjoy helping people who are in pain to feel better,” said Dr. Tara. “When you are pain-free, you can lead a healthy lifestyle with full mobility.” Dr. Tara and her husband enjoy being outdoors, fishing, hunting and horseback riding.
Dr. Linda Huynh—Dr. Linda graduated from the University of Houston and then completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic at Texas Chiropractic College. Dr. Linda is trained in nonsurgical decompression and Webster technique, and has extensive training in the application of Kinesio Tape to aid in the stabilization and strengthening of muscles. “Kinesio taping has really gained popularity in recent years,” said Dr. Linda. “Depending on how it is applied, it can decrease healing time for an injury, decrease swelling by aiding in lymphatic drainage and stabilize and strengthen muscles.”
Dr. Linda is also certified in the Graston Technique, an instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization therapy used with injured athletes. It is beneficial in increasing blood flow, breaking up scar tissue and detecting areas of chronic inflammation and/or fibrosis. Graston has been known to help conditions such as a cervical sprain/strain, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, lumbar sprain/strain, rotator cuff injuries, and even Achilles tendonitis. “I love what I do and I get so excited!” said Dr. Linda. “Knowing I can help people feel better just by using my hands is so gratifying to me. This is truly an amazing profession.” Dr. Linda lives in Missouri City with her husband and enjoys cooking and gardening.
Dr. Jeannie Riley—Dr. Riley grew up in a small town in Northern Wisconsin and is a graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She discovered chiropractic after being rear-ended in an auto accident. “I literally had not even heard of chiropractic before that time,” she said. “The chiropractor I saw helped me so much with the neck pain and headaches I was experiencing.” She went on to receive her Doctorate of Chiropractic and joined the staff at Sugar Mill Chiropractic last year.
Dr. Riley loves working with patients to help them lead healthier, happier lives. “I want my patients to not just get pain relief as quickly as possible; I want them to experience lasting changes,” said Dr. Riley. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Riley is certified in the Webster Technique, Graston Technique and nonsurgical spinal decompression. Dr. Riley has an avid interest in nutrition and will often make recommendations on exercise or nutrition as a part of the patient’s treatment plan.
“I love helping people feel better. It is amazing to watch the power of the body to heal itself.” Dr. Riley said. She lives in Houston with her husband and enjoys exercise, traveling, and being outdoors.
