LOCAL FOCUS: Rutherford Chiropractic
Pain steals the joy from life, but Rutherford Chiropractic Neurology Center offers treatments and procedures that can often provide relief.
Opening his offices in Houston last summer, Dr. Joseph L. Rutherford, a chiropractic neurologist, brought 12-years of experience and the latest technique to the red brick building in downtown Houston.
“As a 10-year-old I had headaches that were not being cured,” said Dr. Rutherford. “My mother and grandmother decided to take me to a chiropractor. Not having headaches made me a believer and started down the road in this profession.”
Rutherford said in any field of medicine, the proof is in the pudding.
“If a doctor can’t take away your pain and help you with your condition, you need to find another doctor,” said Rutherford. “I treat people for pain and discomfort every day and they leave here feeling better.”
Chiropractic Neurology is a subspecialty of chiropractic practice. The healing art is defined by therapies and applications that are performed without the use of drugs or surgery.
Rutherford is board certified by the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (ACNB). He received his education and training at Life University in Atlanta, the nations largest and most prestigious chiropractic school.
“Adjustments and decompression make up the bulk of what we do,” said Rutherford. “Most people come to us with back pain, but we are often referred by doctors for a variety of reasons.”
Rutherford said his office has one of the few decompression tables in the area.
“Most of what we do revolves around the spine,” said Rutherford. “Using the decompression table stretches the back out and takes pressure off disks. That usually takes away the pain.”
Rutherford said he then uses his knowledge – and his hands — to make sure the back is aligned properly.
“I have treated people who have suffered back pain for years,” said Rutherford. “The spine is designed to move and when a pinched nerve and the pain it brings stops you from moving in a certain fashion more trouble soon starts.”
Rutherford urged those with back pain and pain in major joints to call for an appointment.
“Men are the worst and will put up with back pain for years before they come to me,” said Rutherford. “I always wish they would come to be sooner. They don’t have to live with pain.”
Rutherford and his wife Lisa operate their clinic in Houston and Rutherford prides himself in the relationships he has built with his patients.
