And yes, Medicare is accepted.
Let me introduce you to Dr. Adam Sewell, MD.
He has an interesting back story ...
Dr. Sewell is kinda like that tv show “Doogie Howser.” Do you remember that show? [It was the one with Neil Patrick Harris who graduated early from college and became a doctor.]
His story is kind of the same. He graduated from college at the age of 18! He became a doctor because his father had terrible scoliosis (his spine was like an S) and he saw the pain his dad suffered from and he saw how it changed his father’s personality. So he went to medical school here at the University of Texas. He focused on helping people like his father who suffered from pain because he realizes how much pain can negatively impact your life.
He is different than many other doctors because he doesn’t just treat the symptoms. He uses the latest technology to find the actual root cause of the pain and fix it.

A bit more information on certain pain.
Neck and Back Pain
Neck pain is a common complaint. Some of the issues that can cause or exacerbate neck pain include: Nerve compression, inflammation, sports injuries, muscle strain, joint damage or injury. Any of these problems can lead to significant neck pain, which can get in the way of your normal daily routine.
Back pain can result from Injury from an accident, trauma, structural deformities, arthritis, disc degeneration, or infection, just to name a few. Back pain can also happen any time the nerves in your back are compressed, damaged, or irritated.
How conventional Doctors treat neck and back pain
Doctors conventionally treat neck and back pain caused by neuropathy by using injections, medications or surgery. Unfortunately, medications and injections just mask the symptoms and should only be used as a short-term solution for pain management. If used too long medication can become addictive and cause dependency issues. Surgery rarely takes care of the problem and quite often creates more neuropathy.
How we treat neck and back pain
Dr. Thai & Dr. Sewell believe in treating the root cause of neck and back pain, which is a damaged nerve. We use noninvasive treatments to restore the nerve. Getting rid of the pain, numbness, tingling and burning you may have experienced.
What causes knee pain?
There are many different things that can lead to knee pain, which is an incredibly common complaint. Your knees perform an essential role in mobility, and they sustain significant stress each day. While the knees are strong joints, theyâ€™re asked to do a lot, and numerous issues can cause knee pain.
Traumatic injury is a common cause of knee pain and can result from a sports injury, an auto accident, or something as simple as a trip and fall accident.
Additional sources of knee pain include:
Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
Loose body in the joint
This is far from a comprehensive list. Anything that places pressure on the nerves within your knee or damages nerve tissue can cause or worsen knee pain.
What can I do to prevent knee pain?
While it may not be possible to prevent all types of knee pain, there are things you can do to reduce your risk. Taking precautions to avoid traumatic injury is a great place to begin. That means avoiding dangerous activities and altering your living environment as you age to reduce the risk of tripping and falling.
If you're an athlete or fitness enthusiast, make sure you incorporate exercises that strengthen and stabilize your knee joint to prevent injury. If you're living with arthritis, seek treatment to manage inflammation.
Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight can also relieve a great deal of pressure on your knees and other joints. Even choosing a healthier diet can lessen inflammation and reduce knee pain.
How is knee pain treated?
In some cases, joint damage must be surgically repaired. Other cases can be managed with physical therapy and lifestyle modifications.
Once knee pain is present, it's important to obtain an accurate diagnosis and pursue the right treatment path. Letting knee pain linger can lead to additional damage to your joint, including nerve damage.
Many men and women want a knee pain treatment path that does not rely on pharmaceutical or surgical interventions. Fortunately, there are advanced medical technology tools that can deliver effective results and get you back on your feet.
