What If Your Healthcare Providers All Worked Together?
Alternative and Medical healthcare providers in Amarillo working towards one goal - your health!
For years I've been perplexed how one hand of the healthcare field could have literally no clue what the other hand was doing. Knowing the background battle through the years between the chiropractic and medical fields allows it all to make more sense but, sitting here in 2021, those days are mostly behind us, there is much more cooperation and integration between the two, and the stage is set for real advances in more conservative pain management and the prevention of unnecessary surgery.
Here at Creek Stone Integrated Medical in Amarillo, TX, we have take steps to solve this problem. We have ended this scenario where providers aren't cooperating with each other and are ushering in an era of integration and cooperation so that the real winner is our patients.
The team at Creek Stone Integrated Medical includes the following:
- 1 Medical Director
- 1 Nurse Practitioner
- 1 Chiropractic Orthopedic Specialist
- 1 Licensed Acupuncturist
- 3 Licensed Massage Therapists

All of that and we also have a licensed esthetician on staff for skincare and self-care services.
There truly is no other clinic quite like Creek Stone in the Texas Panhandle. We are setting the stage for the next revolution in healthcare. We are now THE one-stop healthcare option for everything short of surgery

As you can see, the options for getting our patients better are literally too many to keep listing.
Think about this scenario for a moment; you get in a car wreck (God forbid). You're mostly OK but you have whiplash and ongoing soreness. Soreness that persists for over 2 weeks and doesn't seem to be getting any better. Here in Amarillo, we have seen that most medical providers refuse to get involved in car wreck cases. Certainly those with attorneys involved. As a result, the options are limited from the start.
But, what if you could go to one clinic and they were willing to help you from head to toe? Not only is there a medical provider that could help you with any medicine that may be appropriate but in this same clinic is a chiropractor with a Fellowship in Orthopedics, has Advanced Certification in Whiplash Biomechanics and Traumatology, has written a book on chiropractic research, and is recognized in court as an expert in Whiplash? Then, what if, in the same clinic, there were also 3-4 licensed massage therapists, a licensed acupuncturist, and targeted exercises that a physical therapist would typically provide?
What if all of that were in one building, in one clinic, and they all worked together on your case?
Not only that but, considering this is a car wreck, what if there was typically no cost at all to you for the medical and chiropractic care?
Obviously, the winner is the patient in this scenario but it's only one little snapshot of the healthcare world. There are a hundred different scenarios that we could walk through where the end story involves the patient coming out as the winner. That's because, as research is showing more and more, that alternative healthcare providers have safe, non-invasive, non-pharma answers to problems that medical providers have traditionally struggled treating effectively. And vice versa. There are problems that alternative healthcare providers could never dream of effectively treating.
Traditionally, the two sides have done battle, resisted each other, talked bad about each other, and avoided referring patients to each other. More modern thinking and research show us that the patient suffers in this type of arrangement. Health and healthcare advancements suffer from this sort of setup.
In fact, research is clear now on this issue. The American College of Physicians and American Family Physicians recognized this when they updated their approach to treating pain just a few years ago. They said that it is an evidence-based, multi-modal approach that is most effective.
It's not just medical care. It's not just chiropractic care. It's not just physical therapy or just acupuncture or just massage. It is a broad management, multi-modal approach that often includes 2 or more of these strategies working together that get the job done when prior treatment has usually failed.
Here at Creek Stone, we decided that not only should there be cooperation between the different professions, but they should be all under one roof. That's exactly what we have done. Patients of Creek Stone Integrated Medical here in Amarillo get to experience the synergy that happens when all of their providers work together to get them over the hump and moving back toward a healthy lifestyle and an active life.
Truly feeling better and getting more done.
