Patients at West Houston Spinal C.A.RE will notice a distinct difference in the care they receive from Jennifer Nguyen, DC. Dr. Nguyen takes a personalized approach when caring for her patients and customizes the treatment according to their individual conditions and health concerns. “I view my practice as an extension of my family and believe that you can benefit patients best when you focus on each as an individual with a specific health concern,” said Dr. Nguyen.
Dr. Nguyen received a Bachelor of Science in biology from Baylor University. She went on to receive her Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Parker University in Dallas, Texas, among the most prestigious schools of chiropractic medicine in the nation, where she also received her postgraduate training in acupuncture.
She uses a variety of adjustment techniques depending on her patient’s individual needs and concerns and is a Webster Technique certified physician, which allows her to comfortably and safely treat pregnant women and children.
Dr. Nguyen is passionate about helping expectant mothers enjoy their pregnancies without the pain caused by sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. The Webster Technique is a safe way to restore pelvic balance and function that may be affected during pregnancy. Dr. Nguyen sees patients from preconception to postpartum.
OB-GYNs from surrounding hospitals consistently refer their patients to Dr. Nguyen for co-treatment during pregnancy. Chiropractic has become a safe and effective alternative to prescription and over-the-counter pain relief, and with the success of the Webster technique in improving pelvic/sacral imbalance to allow optimal fetal positioning and ease of labor, many caesarian sections have been avoided.
“I truly enjoy the relationship I have with birth care providers in the surrounding area and am thankful that they trust me to care for their prenatal patients,” said Dr. Nguyen.
What sets West Houston Spinal C.A.RE apart from other practices, aside from the specialized prenatal chiropractic care that patients receive, is Dr. Nguyen’s use of soft tissue work. In addition to traditional adjustments, she uses stretching and exercises to prolong the effectiveness of the adjustment and allow patients to go longer between visits.
She also uses acupuncture, focusing on musculoskeletal trigger points for pain relief and relaxation. “Every patient is different,” said Dr. Nguyen. “My goal is use whatever treatment is best for each individual patient.”
Dr. Nguyen’s favorite part of every day is finding creative solutions to her patient’s pain management and rehabilitation issues. “When presented with a difficult case,” she said, “I spend a great deal of time working on new and different ways to treat each patient, and when a solution proves successful, it is a such a rewarding experience.”
Dr. Nguyen has been practicing for five and a half years, two of which have been at her current Memorial location. She will be moving to a new, larger location in June in order to accommodate her ever-growing patient schedule.
