t took trying out a few different chiropractors before I found one that I
liked. Frank Greenberg in Arlington, Texas.
He respected my own knowledge about my condition and worked with me on the
areas I knew needed help. The other (rejected) chiropractors did two things
1. relied on that little metal thingie to go up and down my spine..... sorry, but I don't buy that it works.
2. another worked in his own way, ignoring the area I said needed help. Her was fixated on the way my legs/feet laid and adjusted my back (with a metal thingie) based on the way my feet were resting. He ignored the fact that my problem was C6/7 T1 (shown on x-rays).
Greenberg also adjusted my wrists, thumbs, and lower back, depending on what *I* tell him is going on. He didn't try to get me in 3-4 times a week. We did one month at once a week, and now it's just once a month. In a nutshell, he *listens* to me, and I don't get the impression he wants to drain my bank account. Instead of poking me with the "activator?," he contorts me, twists me, jumps on me, body slams me.... all for $20 a visit... and it's working very well.

Oxygen are very powerfull powers that we have control of their influence
better with correct posture and better body usage, i think!
Posture is the main attention and helping them adjust their posture in the office as well as on the job developing a good posture habit has been very helpfull.

I have had both carpel tunnel and cubital tunnel. My best recommendation for the Dallas area is Dr. Robert Wilcox. He can be reached at 972-985-7474 and is located in Plano. He did surgery on my hands for carpel tunnel, and since he is a plastic surgeon also, there were no visible scars left and my carpel tunnel was treated successfully. He is now treating me for cubital tunnel but treatment has not yet been completed.
I have been seeing "Gail Blom". She is Certified Hand Therapist.

Somebody was asking about resources in the San Antonio area. I've just found a Hand Institute website which seems to say all the right things. It's run by an orthopedic group based in Houston & San Antonio. Website is http://www.mysurgeon.com/ and follow the link to "institutes". Hopestar Orthopedic Group is on McCulloch Ave, phone 225-5741.
I live here in San Antonio and have had 2 hand surgeries done here. I have also checked out the web site you mention and there is a lot more offered here than what is available on the web. For instance, Dr. Green the leading hand surgeon and author of "Green's Operative Hand" and many more books lives here in San Antonio. He has also operated on David Robinson the center of the San Antonio Spurs. Also Dr. Paul Pace, yes of the Pace picante family, resides here in San Antonio and has a hand clinic at the downtown Nix hospital. You can find just about any medical specialist here. San Antonio is a medical and military city with the infamous Brooke Army Medical Center which burn unit services patients from around the world.
