None of us is immune to stress. The unprecedented events of the past two years, the medical uncertainty, political division, fear of the unknown, and the fact that there seems to be no end in sight, have taken a toll on many. All that stress can manifest in the body leading to an array of physical problems including:
- Elevated blood pressure
- Musculoskeletal disorders (stiff neck, achy joints, lower back pain)
- Digestive disorders (acid reflux, indigestion, ulcers, irritable bowel)
- Difficulty sleeping
- Allergies and sinus issues
- Immune system issues
- Depression and anxiety
The board-certified chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic in Katy, Cinco Ranch, and Morton Ranch are seeing these symptoms every day. “People can generally deal with anything when they can see an end,” said Clinical Director Dr. Jason Basile. “But when it’s open ended like it is right now, it really begins to effect our health and wellbeing. The good news is chiropractic adjustments help relieve stress as the act of adjusting the spine releases tension held in muscles, calms the body, and increases circulation of the blood soothing our natural ‘flight or fight’ response.”
A chiropractor can be a partner in your wellness journey by:
- Reducing muscle tension
- Restoring function to the body with spinal adjustments
- Counseling with you about nutrition
- Offering relaxations tips
An estimated 35 million Americans are treated by a chiropractor each year including adults, children—even infants with more than a million chiropractic adjustments performed in the US each day. While between 11% and 40% of adult Americans report living with chronic pain, 77% of people who receive chiropractic care describe it as “very effective”. What can chiropractic do for you?
Here When You Need Them
The chiropractors and staff at The Joint Chiropractic understand there are many demands on your time. That’s why they make chiropractic care available to you seven days a week—mornings, afternoons, and evenings. “No appointment necessary and walk-ins are welcome,” Dr. Basile said. “Just drop in, whenever you need us. No insurance hassles or co-pays. We try to work efficiently, so you won’t have to wait, often getting you in and out in five to 10 minutes. We also work to keep our services affordable. We want to be part of your complete wellness team.”
The Joint Chiropractic is a vital part of our community presenting at local health fairs and supporting local non-profits. “We also offer discounts to veterans and local first responders,” Dr. Basile said. “This has been a difficult time for our first responders who’ve been working non-stop. We value the service they provide and want to do anything we can—for them and our US service members and veterans.”
Dr. Jason Basile
Jason Basile is the Director of The Joint’s Houston area locations. Graduating from the University of Delaware with a degree in exercise science, he went on to earn his chiropractic degree from Life University in Georgia. He practiced for 16 years in the private sector before becoming the director of eight of The Joint’s Houston area locations. “Chiropractic aligns the body, takes pressure off of nerves, and allows the body to function at optimal levels,” he says. “Hands-on, therapeutic manipulation is used to alleviate pain and discomfort, improve body functions, and put patients on a path toward wellness.
Dr. Arian Azodi
“Stress can cause a number of physical symptoms including, but not limited to, headaches, low energy, aches and pains, tight muscles, joint dysfunction, trouble sleeping, and anxiety,” said Arian Azodi, clinical director of The Joint’s Katy clinic. “Chronic stress increases chronic inflammation, a driver for numerous diseases. That pro-inflammatory response can affect the discs, ligaments, and tendons around your spine. All of this contributes to pain and creates spinal abnormalities that cause destruction far beyond your spine.”
“Chiropractic care enables the body to harness its innate powers to heal on its own,” he continued. “You can’t eliminate stress, but you can incorporate strategies to manage it and reduce its impact on your spine and overall health.” Raised in Canada, Dr. Azodi obtained his Bachelor of Science in kinesiology and health sciences with honors at York University. He received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College. He also earned a black belt in Taekwondo.
Dr. Vecente Ramirez
“It’s essential to be mindful of how we carry ourselves throughout the day, especially during stressful times,” said Vicente Ramirez, DC, BS, clinical director of The Joint, Cinco Ranch. “Whether we’re sitting at a computer or standing and moving throughout the day, proper body biomechanics are important to maintaining a healthy spine. With The Joint’s model of chiropractic, getting adjusted is more convenient and affordable than ever.” Dr. Ramirez obtained a Bachelor of Science in human biology and a Doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College.
Dr. Ben Karis
Dr. Karis was initially drawn to chiropractic care at age eight, after a severe neck injury during a wrestling tournament left him in pain and unable to walk. Only through routine chiropractic care was his body able to heal naturally and regain the ability to walk. Raised in Wisconsin, he obtained his Bachelors of Science degree in marketing at the University of Wisconsin and his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree at Texas Chiropractic College. The most rewarding part of his chiropractic career is connecting with people on a personal level, being involved in his community, and helping people live their best lives through holistic care. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, sports and spending quality time with his wife Laura, their young son, and the family dog, Leine.
