About Integra Spine & Sport Therapy
Expect a different “chiropractic” experience when going to Integra Spine & Sport Therapy. Dr. Elizabeth Baker, a graduate of Texas Chiropractic College and the University of Texas takes an approach unlike many doctors. By combining soft tissue therapy, exercise and chiropractic Dr. Baker finds her patients returning to normal life faster and remaining healthy longer. She provides individualized care in a one on one setting. There are no three minute appointments here. Most patient visits last twenty to thirty minutes; entirely with Dr. Baker. “Often times in the medical world patients get lost in the mix or are treated as a number. I do my best to listen and devise a plan that works with each patient.” reports Dr. Baker.
Expect more than just an adjustment. Dr. Baker has been practicing soft tissue therapies such as Active Release Technique (ART), Graston Technique (GT) and myofascial release for over 14 years. She sees the importance of not only treating the joint that has dysfunction, but the muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue that may be overly tight, weak or scarred down. By treating the soft tissue and the joints, this allows patients to move quickly into exercises to return strength and stability to their body.
Expect to learn. In twenty minutes, Dr. Baker can teach a lot about the importance of good nutrition, regular exercise and taking care of your body. Applying her experience in running, triathlons, mountain biking and tennis, she feels her role is to encourage people to not just avoid being sick, but to live life with vitality.
Expect to get back to life. Dr. Baker understands the importance of feeling better and getting back to the things people love to do. “People want to get back to their families, activities and work, not spend their lives in a waiting room.” She works with her patients, devising a plan to reach their goals, at which point they are discharged. No coming back over and over with no end of care in sight. Dr. Baker does emphasize that regular care after their initial treatment does help prevent further injury.
