Degenerative Arthritis:  The wearing away of cartilage that protects and cushions joints including those in the spine, hands and feet (see Osteoarthritis).


Degenerative Disc Disease / Degenerative Joint Disease:  A general term applied to the "wearing out" of the spinal discs which serve as cushions between the spinal vertebrae, resulting in a narrowing of the disc space, formation of osteophytes / bone spurs on the vertebra itself and spinal disc desiccation. Furthermore, as the disc spaces narrow, additional force is placed on the 2 facet joints associated with the vertebral level causing a "mushrooming" effect, referred to as facet joint hypertrophy, which is irreversible. It is common for patients to be told they have "arthritis" without much more explanation. 


Diabetes Mellitus - A disease that occurs when the body  is not able to use blood glucose (sugar). Blood sugar levels are controlled by insulin, a hormone in the body that helps move glucose (sugar) from the blood to muscles and other tissues. Diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body does not respond to the insulin that is made.


Disc Annulus:  The outer lining of a disk (see Annulus Fibrosis).


Disc Nucleus:  The inner core of a disk (see Nucleus Pulposus).


Discectomy:  Surgical removal of part or the entire herniated intervertebral disc.


Diet: What a person eats and drinks. Any type of eating plan.

We feature " Acupuncture Dry Needling for Pain Management" as taught to Dr. Dixon personally by Dr. Yun-Tao Ma PhD.  Dr. Ma teaches Acupuncture Dry Needling based on Neuroanatomy rather than energy meridians. I believe, based on my many years of personal experience treating patients on a daily basis (with acupuncture since 2003), that this is the most scientifically solid acupuncture technique for pain control in a Chiropractic and/or Pain Management office setting. We also feature Spinal Disc Decompression with the Chattanooga DTS Disc Decompression System for Complete Spinal Rehabilitation in cases of Degenerative Disc Disease and Bulged or Herniated Disc in the Lumbar Spine.

Dr. Dixon has proudly served Chandler, Tyler, Brownsboro, Murchison, Edom, Ben Wheeler,
Frankston  & the entire Lake Palestine area since 2001. 
He continues to serve you from Tyler at his new clinic location on Beckham just a few blocks from ETMC's main hospital campus.
