I love love LOVE adjusting my stressed out moms....
Because they've been adapting🤹🏽 and enduring for soooo long, they aren't even aware of how bad it's gotten. Commonly, they come in for one thing that is KILLING THEM, but in our thorough history and exam, we uncover many areas of stress that, cumulatively, are draining them physically and emotionally.
Fatigue, insomnia, and a short temper are just a few complaints our stressed out mom's have.
Let us help you with your physical stress with an ADJUSTMENT and MASSAGE!!
We know that you are taking care of your family, but who's taking care of you?
When it comes to taking care of ourselves, it can be very easy to get wrapped up in feeling like you HAVE to do those things. But, a much better way of thinking about it is that you GET to do those things. 😃
Taking care of our bodies is an absolute privilege! And, the reality is that when we are consistent with making positive health choices, our bodies will thank us time and time again for being proactive.
While we are more than happy to take care of you and your family when you have pain, digestive problems, sleep trouble, chronic illness, and all the other things that can happen - prevention is key! 🌿
Why wait until you are feeling subpar to spring into action?!
Our patients that are under regular chiropractic care experience less injuries, a stronger immune system, better sleep, happy digestive systems, and less pain! 💪🏼
Chiropractic is the ultimate form of self care, and you are worthy of feeling the best that you can so that you can do the things you love with the people you love!
Adults can often realize that when they aren’t feeling their best, it can be traced back to dealing with a particularly stressful time or experience. When children experience stress, it can be hard for them to convey what they are feeling, or know where it’s stemming from. 🤔
At any age, we can see that prolonged stress can manifest into physical, mental, or emotional symptoms like:
In our office, we find that many of these challenges often occur because of nervous system dysfunction. When there is a disruption between the way the brain communicates with the rest of the body, all kinds of symptoms can pop up from any system in the body.
As family wellness chiropractors, our job is to restore the brain + body connection so the whole family can function at an optimal level and feel their best. ⚡️
If you or one of your children have been dealing with feeling less than amazing, we would love to connect with you!
Benefits of Chiropractic Care During the School Year ✨
Whether you are a teacher, parent, or student - chiropractic care offers some amazing whole body support all year long! Here are some health benefits you can expect when you’re under regular chiropractic care.
How do we help with these things?! Our job is to help the nervous system operate at its best through chiropractic care! 🤲🏻
Sometimes all the different types of stress we deal with accumulates, and gets the body stuck in a fight/flight cycle. This essentially means that the nervous system has the pedal to the metal at all times.
To access the “brakes” part of your nervous system, the part that is healing, calming, and peaceful, we have to restore the connection between the brain and the body.
Chiropractic care is an excellent tool to help re-establish a sense of balance within the nervous system, so that your child can operate at their fullest potential! ✨
If these symptoms sound familiar to you, it is possible that you are struggling with a hormone imbalance. Your hormones are such an important part of regulating many different processes in the body including metabolism, sleep cycles, reproductive cycles and libido, and mood.
Even the slightest hormone imbalance may lead to some unwanted effects on your overall health and wellbeing. The endocrine system is responsible for regulating the hormones in your body, and it’s controlled by your brain - just like all the other systems in your body! 🧠
If there is a disruption in the communication between your brain and endocrine system, it can leave the door open for symptoms to appear. Restoring the connection between the two is vital for proper hormone regulation! ✨
In our office, while we do not chase or treat symptoms, we DO help your body stay in a place where it is communicating effectively back and forth with your brain! This lets all of your systems function as they are meant to, leading to a healthier overall wellbeing.
Have you been struggling with seasonal allergies and other related ENT problems more than normal this summer?! We are here to tell you that you are NOT alone!
Most of us don’t want to avoid going outside altogether, so what can you do to support your body naturally? 🤔
In our office, we actually see that patients ear, nose, and throat health improves when they are getting adjusted consistently. This is because chiropractic care helps establish a strong brain + body connection.
So, when an invader makes its way into your body, it is already in a state of adaptability! This allows your body to react accordingly, but prevents an overreaction - allowing you to continue to feel as good as possible! 💪🏻
No matter what time of year it is, we would love to help you support your body’s natural processes through chiropractic care!
The postpartum stage is such a beautiful time, but can come with its challenges. It’s important to remember that the body needs time to recuperate both physically and emotionally!
These are some incredible ways that you can help support the body during this transition.
Did you know that chiropractic care can help tremendously during postpartum healing? It helps ensure that your nervous system is functioning at an optimal level, allowing your body to heal to the best of its ability. 🏼
If you are a mama looking for extra support, we would love to be a part of your postpartum wellness routine!
TRUE HEALTH is more than just the absence of illness.
TRUE HEALTH is the presence of aliveness, energy, and joy!
In our office, we want to help you feel like you are living through the brightest lens that you can! 💫 Life is too short to feeling like you are merely surviving, and not fully THRIVING.
As we encounter stress at any age (yes, even babies!), our bodies start to take note of our environment. While eliminating stress completely isn’t really possible, encouraging our bodies to release stress and remain connected + calm within IS possible! 🙏🏻
Chiropractic care is an incredible tool that you can utilize at any age, and all through the year to ensure that your nervous system and the rest of your body remains adaptable, balanced, and in a state of peace.
Don’t feel like you have to weather just feeling “okay”. Your body was beautifully designed to heal and flourish! ☀️
Whether your family has already started school, or if you are about to get back into the swing of being in the classroom…these 5 easy tips will help the whole family have a positive start to this school year!
Do you have a student athlete gearing up for a new season of sports?!
We love to help make sure that athletes in our community are conditioned for the extra practices, regular season games, AND competitions/tournaments! Chiropractic care helps establish a strong brain + body connection which can help elevate your fitness to the next level!
Athletes under chiropractic care can experience the following benefits:
Improved range of motion
Non-invasive and drug-free
With the sports season getting ready to be in full swing for all of our young athletes, it’s imperative that they are doing everything they can to take care of their active bodies! 🏃🏻♂️
This may not be the most exciting topic, but it IS an important one! An ill-fitting or improperly worn backpack can cause some issues within your child’s spine, which can then lead to nervous system dysfunction. 👎🏻
How heavy is your kiddo’s backpack? Once the spirals, writing utensils, and books stack up…it can end up being too heavy. In fact, it is recommended that a backpack not be more than 10-15% of the weight of the child carrying it.
It’s common for kids to wear their backpack low with the straps loosened, or even to sling their backpack over one shoulder. 😳 However, wearing backpacks either one of these ways can cause poor posture, neck pain, improper spinal curvature, muscular tension, and nervous system interference.
Regular chiropractic care helps restore proper alignment and mobility to the spine, and also helps the nervous system communicate at its best. Kids under chiropractic care also tend to experience less: muscular tension, chronic immune challenges, focus/concentration problems, sleep issues, and more!
Keeping stress hormones in check is absolutely vital to the overall wellbeing of people of ALL ages! Emotional, physical, and even chemical stress causes an increase in our stress hormones that decrease our brain’s 🧠 ability to access:
A sense of calm
Focus + concentration
Good behavior + happy moods
Regular chiropractic care can help lower the stress response within the body, and get the brain back on the right channel so your family’s nervous systems can stay calm and connected! 🔌
Stress is bound to happen for all of us in some form or fashion, so its crucial that we make sure that our brains are able to function at full capacity and calm the storm within! 🌧
Back to school season is upon us, and this time of year can be challenging for both parents and kiddos! Here are some simple steps you can begin to take NOW to ensure a less stressed + easier transition as your child steps back into the classroom:
Ease into your new routine!
Establish healthier habits like less screen time, more regular movement during the day, well-rounded meals, and earlier bedtimes.
Promote optimal adaptation with regular chiropractic care
Each of these tips can help limit stress within your child’s body, and optimizes the connection between their brain + body for a smooth start to a brand new school year! 😊
As school ramps back up again, a strong immune system is always at the top of the list not only for children, but for teachers and parents, too!
Building strong immunity for all that there is to be encountered in a school setting certainly does not have to be complicated. Check out these natural ways you can boost your immune system all year long! ✨
Unveiling the 3 Root Causes of Back Pain 🤔: August Monthly Newsletter -
This month in our office, we have been asking our patients the question, "What causes back pain?" The answer? Anything that is a physical, chemical, or mental stressor! Remember, this isn’t the same for every person!
The daily choices that you make matter! 😃When we take steps to enhance our wellbeing, we are not only adding days to our life, but we are adding LIFE to our days!
This is why being the gatekeeper of your home + taking charge of your family’s health is so essential. Each choice that we make for our families is leading us down one of two roads:
When we are aware of the kind of stressors that can affect mom, dad, kiddo, and baby, that empowers us to limit the amount of stress that our bodies experience, leading to a more vitalistic state of wellness! ✨
Remember that caring for the body is a privilege, not a burden! As advocates of taking proactive measures for the entire family, here are a few simple changes you can make to your family’s routine to take your bodies down the path of EASE:
Ditch the technology an hour before bedtime for better sleep!
Avoid processed foods, and opt for a colorful plate of organic fruits and vegetables + healthy proteins and fats.
Commit to regular chiropractic care with a vitalistic family chiropractor to optimize nervous system function!

Dysfunctional positions or movements of the bones of the skull or spine can put pressure on the nerves contained inside and those nerves bundles that pass through.
The first symptom is dysfunction of the muscles (the feeling of a hitch, decreased range of motion, muscles spasm and tightness) and the organ systems that connect to those nerve bundles, then eventually localized pain, finally radiating pain and weakness.

Education is a big part of what we do at Meadows Chiropractic. We see you only 30 minutes per visit. What you do the rest of your day, week or month can either help or hurt your spinal health.
That being said, perfection is NOT obtainable. We are all different, with different strengths and challenges. Finding balance is key.
Learn what you can, but use what is useful to you now. Implement what you are able to do. It's easier to take small, realistic steps towards a goal! #healthyliving #dallaschiropractor #meadowschiro #selfcare #weekend #dallas #wellness #healthychoices
How are Hormones and Stress related? Have a seat, we are going to briefly dive deep here.
Have you heard of "Fight/Flight" and "Rest/Digest"? This refers to the state our body is in, stress or no stress.
When we are chronically stressed, our bodies shift into making stress hormones, adrenaline, cortisol, and aldosterone. These divert blood flow from organs to muscles, dilate eyes, keep you alert and awake, and cause increased blood pressure and heart rate.
These hormones are made from cholesterol.
These hormones are necessary in an emergency, but chronic stress can take it's toll on the body, continuing to use the body's cholesterol for these stress hormones.
The rest and digest hormones made from cholesterol will be impacted. Bile, for digestion, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone (the sex hormones) and Vitamin D, among other steroids are on that list. Have you experienced indigestion, menstrual cycle and fertility issues, lack of sex drive, and illness/sickness when under chronic stress (or immediately after)? This can be an issue.
Fun fact: Ever had a high cholesterol test during a period of stress in your life? That's your body trying to adapt and do all the things.
Why do we talk about this on a chiropractic page? An adjustment can help decrease physical stress on the body from tense shoulders, neck, head and upper back, as well as help calm an overactive nervous system.
We also recommend other stress-relieving activities such as exercise, meditation, participating in hobbies that bring you joy, taking regular breaks at work, and supporting your body with plenty of water and nutritious food.

Meadows Chiropractic was born from the frustration of two chiropractors, Dr. Frank Cox, DC and Dr. Andrea Ellis, DC over patient care and billing. Both had worked for other chiropractic offices and had reached a breaking point as it related to how little time they got to spend treating patients. It was strongly encouraged to only spend 3-5 minutes per patient for treatment. Numbers and quantity were the name of the game, not quality.
They both quit their salaried positions during the 2009 economic recession to strike out on their own. It was a hard time, as loans were scarce, but they started small. It’s had to believe it’s been almost 9 years!
Located on the ground floor of the One Glen Lakes building, Meadows Chiropractic has 3 Doctors of Chiropractic and 2 massage therapists.
They offer chiropractic visits that vary in time from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on the patient’s needs. In addition to adjusting, several therapies such as ice, muscle stimulation, and traction used to treat various issues.
For those patient’s that need extra care, Meadows Chiropractic also offers Medical Massages ranging from 30-120 minutes and spinal (cervical and lumbar) decompression. These can be combined with adjustments or performed on their own.
Meadows Chiropractic accepts and files on health insurance, auto accident cases, accepts LOP’s from lawyers, Health Savings Accounts, Flexible Spending Accounts, as well as cash or credit cards.
