How much education do chiropractors have?
Chiropractors are educated as primary contact health care practitioners, with an emphasis on musculoskeletal diagnosis and treatment. Educational requirements for doctors of chiropractic are among the most stringent of any of the health care professions. The typical applicant at a chiropractic college has already acquired nearly four years of pre-medical undergraduate college education, including courses in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, physics, psychology, and related lab work. Once accepted into an accredited chiropractic college, the requirements become even more demanding — four to five academic years of professional study are the standard. Because of the hands-on nature of chiropractic, and the intricate adjusting techniques, a significant portion of time is spent in clinical training.
In total, the chiropractic curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience. The course of study is approved by an accrediting agency that is fully recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Chiropractors use manual adjustment, electrical muscular stimulation, ultrasound, or massage without drugs or invasive surgery restoring normal joint function and muscle balance and addressing the entire body.
Therapeutic ultrasound is often used to reduce pain, increase circulation, and increase the mobility of soft tissues. Additionally, the application of ultrasound can be helpful in reducing inflammation, reducing pain, and the healing of injuries and wounds.
Massage Therapy can relieve stress, back pain, reduce anxiety, muscle tension, enhance exercise performance, and relieve tension headaches.
Physiotherapy can help you avoid surgery, improve mobility and movement, recover from injury or trauma, improve balance.
Chiropractic care evaluates pain symptoms and treats sudden pain such as headaches and many types of chronic pain such as low back pain.
Electrotherapy can offer several key benefits such as reduce nerve pain, promote healing of musculoskeletal injuries, have non-invasive, drug-free pain control, and prevent muscle atrophy.
When the tape is applied it lifts the skin to create a small space between the muscle and dermis layers. That space takes the pressure off swelling or injured muscles allows smooth muscle movement and makes space for drainage and blood flow.
Nutritional Therapy can help one control and manage disease, benefit a healthy immune system, increase energy levels, balance hormones, identify food intolerance, improve digestion, improve sleep, and achieve weight loss.
Magnawave Therapy PEMF generates energy at the cellular level without medically invasive procedures. It capitalizes on the body’s intelligence and incredible self-healing capabilities, encouraging the cells with natural energy to better perform their many functions.
According to research, the body’s cells are similar to batteries. They hold a charge and can become depleted of energy over time by environmental stressors. PEMF applies energy directly to the cell, and the body’s holistic nature uses that cellular energy as a catalyst for full-body energy.

What Our Patients Say About Us.
My son Hunter and I started coming a little over a year ago just as a maintenance plan since we enjoy fairly good health. I was surprised to realize that we have had fewer doctor visits over the past year. I definitely feel that our chiropractic visits have improved our health even more!
– Carolyn Rose (Southside ISD 4th grade teacher)
I honestly was skeptical about seeing a Chiropractor. But I was in so much pain that I needed to do something right away. Also my Dr. gave me the choice of a Physical Therapist or a Chiropractor. So I tried the Chiro it has changed my stress levels tremendously and my pain is gone. I will continue to get sessions. I am a registered nurse and I am recommending Chiropractic care to all my friends and family.

Originally I needed care for a crick in my neck. After conversations with Dr. Goolsby I decided to bring one of my children because he has had asthma his entire life. Before we began chiropractic care, my son took 3 medications daily. He no longer takes any asthma medications and has not had a doctor's visit since we began either. It has been a relief to see his symptoms decrease like they have.

An Interview With Dr. Bruen Goolsby
As a former professional rodeo participant who was injured, Dr. Bruen Goolsby is a devout advocate of the benefits of chiropractic.
“It boosts your immune system,” he said. “It’s just like rebooting your computer. If our spines were on our faces, we’d all take better care of them!”
Born in Gilmer, Texas, and raised in Gonzales, Dr. Goolsby was a bull-rider in high school and attended Howard Junior College in Big Spring and then Sam Houston State University in Huntsville on rodeo scholarships, but quit his studies in 1992 to pursue a career in rodeo professionally.
Sidelined by injuries he received in the rodeo, he was introduced to chiropractic care. He underwent chiropractic adjustments and became very interested in how chiropractic worked because it was working for him. This led to his return to school to pursue a career in chiropractic.
“When I saw all the good they could do for kids and overall health for anyone, I knew this was what I wanted to be able to do,” he recalls.
Bruen attended Texas Chiropractic College, returning to the rodeo arena sponsored by the college. While studying, he participated in a practice-based externship in Baytown with Dr. James Golden and Dr. Terry More, seeing more than 65 patients each day. He completed the demanding curriculum and passed his I-IV National Board exams.
Doc started La Vernia Chiropractic in October 2001, retiring from the rodeo arena. He later moved his practice to Floresville, Texas and his practice was renamed Wilson County Chiropractic.
Dr. Goolsby began incorporating massage in the practice which has really worked compatibly with his chiropractic adjustments, offering whole-body health to his patients.
“When you get adjustments, massage is more beneficial,” Doc said. “Li is, very good at what she does. We have the best massage therapist the USA has to offer!”
Doc enjoys visiting with people who come to the practice.
“Visiting helps me ‘read’ the tension in people and helps me be more effective,” he said.
He endeavors to instill confidence in everyone who comes through the door, minimizing worry and allaying any fears.
“The chiropractic relationship is very intimate,” Doc said. “Once established, it’s very hard for people to go to another chiropractor.”
Doc has regular adjustments and advocates this for everyone, saying it’s the best thing for maintaining good health.
“Everyone should get adjustments once or twice a month,” he said. “I haven’t been to a medical doctor in 25 years.”
His competitive edge hasn’t dulled since giving up rodeo. Doc has simply changed his competitive focus.
