Nutritional Consultation

Even though good nutrition is an important part of living a healthy life, most people do not have diets that provide them with proper or complete nutrition.

At Texas Chiropractic College’s Moody Health Center, we stress the importance of doing everything possible to live healthy lives through the nutritional consultation we provide. Our doctors and student interns can offer guidance on a wide variety of nutritional vitamins and supplements. While many of the supplements we prescribe may be for nutritional benefits, many others are given as an adjunct to treatment to enhance healing.

TCC interns at Moody Health Center complete an extensive course in nutrition and can provide nutritional consultation, counseling and treatment, when needed.


One of the oldest forms of healing treatments in the world, acupuncture is a practice that has been growing in use and popularity in the U.S. in recent years.

At Texas Chiropractic College’s Moody Health Center, acupuncture services are offered as a sole method of treatment or may be provided as an addition to the chiropractic adjustment.

The main concept of acupuncture is that good health entails having balance and harmony of energy and function between the systems of the body. Acupuncture involves the stimulation of various points on the body to achieve a balance of energies or to restore homeostasis in the body. There are 361 known points on the body and 200 points on the ear that can be stimulated. This stimulation is usually done with very fine acupuncture needles, sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulation, but it can also be done without needles.

With a proper balance of energies, a state of good health will exist.


Your feet are the foundation of your body, supporting you when you stand, walk, or run.   It’s possible that your feet may be contributing to some of the problems related to your spine and lower extremities, even if your feet don’t hurt!

Our clinicians are trained to evaluate your feet to see if they might be part of the problem and if they are, a custom, flexible orthotic that supports all three arches of your feet may be recommend helping you get the best results and the longest lasting benefit.  Custom orthotics can help stabilize the pelvis and spine, enhancing the effectiveness of your chiropractic care.


In many cases, rehabilitation is an essential aspect of treatment and recovery of certain health injuries and conditions.

At Texas Chiropractic College’s Moody Health Center, you will find doctors and student interns capable of providing excellent one-on-one rehabilitation services for patients. These services are typically utilized in follow-up to surgery of the neck, back, shoulder, or knee, but are also beneficial to victims of stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and numerous other musculoskeletal problems.

Further, the rehabilitation services at MHC can be ideal for patients with simple neck and back pain, since much of the focus is on learning to perform exercises to increase flexibility and strength to minimize and/or eliminate pain and symptoms.
