Lauren Letz, D.C.
Dr. Lauren Letz loves being a chiropractor and feels extremely blessed to have the opportunity to help others! Dr. Letz graduated Summa Cum Laude from Parker College of Chiropractic as the class Salutatorian. She realized her calling to be a chiropractor while attending Texas A&M University, where her studies focused on Biomedical Science and Clinical Nutrition. She is very passionate about the importance of the spine being in the correct alignment, as well as the importance of proper physical fitness and nutrition. Dr. Letz takes great pride in her ability to focus on the patients needs. She works diligently to not only repair current problems but works to create a healthy environment so future spinal injuries do not arise. Dr. Letz treats her patients using a “whole body approach.” Her philosophy on health care is summed up in Thomas Edison’s famous quote, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
To understand her philosophy is to understand her favorite line, “You have only one spine and there is no such thing as a spinal transplant.”
Dr. Letz is always working to increase her levels of professionalism. In August of 2013, she completed her certification and is now offering Trigger Point Dry Needling as an adjunct to all the other Chiropractic services. In March of 2010, she completed the Certification program for the Titleist Performance Institute. For her patients that play golf, this gives her a great ability to treat from an incredible level of knowledge; allowing her to treat not only from a Chiropractic arena but also in the area of improving a patients ability to play better golf.
