Services & Techniques

At Theriot Family Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our New Iberia chiropractic office, but please call us at 337-367-6649 if you have any questions!

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Tina Theriot has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.

Corrective Exercises

At Theriot Family Chiropractic Center, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address eacj patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our New Iberia chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.

 Dry Needling

 Patients with acute or chronic pain may benefit from a unique procedure known  as dry needling.  We offer this technique here at Theriot Family Chirpractic to  improve pain control, reduce muscle tension and accelerate rehabilitation from  injury.  A thin filament needle is inserted into areas of muscle spasm known as trigger points – small knots that are often very tense or sore to the touch.When the needle is inserted, it acts to jump start the muscle and its nerve supply. The trigger point is released and the muscle relaxes. Dry needling targets muscle tissue, and its nerve connections, so any condition where muscle pain or tightness is an issue could potentially benefit.Here are a few things that this technique could help:

  • chronic or acute neck and back pain
  • Low back pain
  • shoulder and forearm pain
  • headaches and migraines
  • hip, hamstring and calf/ankle injuries
  • sports injuries
  • pain-related symptoms that get worse over time.

Dry needling is safe and effective.  A needle is gently inserted, stays in place for a few minutes, and then is removed. It may cause a small muscle twitch, which is a sign that the muscle is relaxing.

Dry needling should not be confused with acupuncture. Same tool, different procedure and goals. Dry needling is based strictly on Western science and targets trigger points that are direct and palpable sources of pain. 

Spinal & Postural Screenings

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Tina Theriot can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the New Iberia community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 337-367-6649 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

 Spinal Decompression/Sciatica Pain Relief Program                                      

 Approximately 1 in every 50 Americans will experience the pain of a herniated  disc in their lifetime. Of these, less than 10%,will require surgery to eliminate  their sciatica or sciatic nerve pain. For patients who follow a non-surgical treatment plan, 60-70% recover within 6 weeks. By week 12 of the conservative, non-surgical treatment plan, 90% of patients have fully recovered. Theriot Family Chiropractic offers a  conservative, non-surgical treatment plan designed so that you can eliminate your pain as soon as possible. Our approach utilizes several modalities, including spinal decompression, and is ultimately designed around your specific situation. Give us a call today so we can get you back to living life without pain.
