In my career as an orthopaedic surgeon, I am always leaning over patients while performing surgery. As my career progressed, I noticed that I was having a constant burning, achy dull pain in between my shoulder blades. No matter what treatment I tried, from massage to injections, the pain still persisted. It was getting to the point that the pain was affecting my ability to perform surgery. One day several years ago, I had a meeting with Dr. Harper because he needed a surgeon to refer cases. At that time I mentioned my issue to him and he called it an upper cross syndrome but I call it scapulo-thoracic syndrome. He told me to come see him and treat with him for a while to fix this issue. I spent about 12 weeks with him, and the end result was a total resolution of this problem to this day. I currently refer patients to Dr. Harper for this issue all the time. His rehabilitation system is the most effective treatment for this problem that I have ever seen.
I have a busy OB/GYN practice that requires a great deal of time at the computer in addition to delivering babies and performing surgery. As my career progressed, I noticed that I was having a significant pain in my neck and shoulders. This pain was so intense that it had the probability of affecting my career. I had tried other treatments such as massage therapy and anti-inflammatories, and though they did help temporarily, the problem would return. I had a meeting with Dr. Harper at Avery Ranch Chiropractic. He told me what the problem was and he came up with a corrective plan for me. I devoted approximately 4-6 weeks with him, and aside from the occasional tightness, I have had total resolution of my problem. I do not hesitate to refer patients to Dr. Harper and his staff for this type of problem.
As a medical doctor, I had some reservations about seeking out chiropractic care. I had more reservations, however, about having back surgery. I really like the dynamic approach at Avery Ranch Chiropractic. Adjustments plus physical medicine and rehabilitation, massage, orthotics and more have made quite a difference. I am much improved and only half way through my program. The staff is always upbeat and never in a hurry. Many thanks to the Avery Ranch Chiropractic team.
When I moved to Austin to practice cardiology, I was experiencing significant symptoms of low back pain. I visited Dr. Harper and after a combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy and orthotics, my low back issues significantly improved. Since that time, I have visited Dr. Harper for various other issues related to the musculoskeletal system and continue to be extremely satisfied with the care I receive at Avery Ranch Chiropractic. As a Doctor of Osteopathy, I understand how the practice of manipulation plays an important role in all patients. As such, I often refer my patients to Dr. Harper for treatment of rib dysfunction that typically presents as chest pain or shortness of breath. They receive excellent care with Dr. Harper and his team at Avery Ranch Chiropractic.
I am currently a practicing anesthesiologist specializing in interventional pain management. I met Dr. Harper a couple of years ago when I visited his office to see if we could work together in mutual patient care. I was impressed with the layout of his office and his philosophy of incorporating chiropractic and physical therapy to create long lasting effects in his patients. I personally have not been a patient of Dr. Harper, but I currently refer patients to him for their chiropractic and physical therapy needs. Our mutual patients have great things to say about Dr. Harper and his staff. I will continue to refer patients to Dr. Harper for the various issues for which they need care.
In my profession as a dentist I am constantly leaning over patients to achieve the best position to do their dental work. As you can imagine this has taken a toll on my body over the last several years. I first met Dr. Harper when he moved into our complex several years ago. After that meeting I decided to see him for these various issues that I had been having in my back, neck and jaw. I have been treating with him on a regular basis for these issues and he has kept me doing the dental work that I love. I have referred several patients of mine to him for different issues and they are all doing better. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his staff for any of these issues I have had to deal with over the years.
