R


Recommended dietary allowance (RDA): The level of dietary intake of essential nutrients considered to be sufficient to meet the minimum nutritional needs of most healthy individuals.


Relaxation Techniques:  A natural process that can be learned by anyone to reverse the effects of stress on the body's physiology. Methods used to lessen tension, reduce anxiety, and manage pain.


Repetitions or “Reps”:  Refers to a single full execution of an exercise movement.  For example, one repetition of a push-up involves beginning with your arms straight, lowering your body to the floor and returning to the starting position.  The number of repetitions you perform of a particular exercise will determine the type of benefit to your muscles.  Higher weights with lower repetitions will increase strength.  Lower weights with higher repetitions will increase endurance.


Routine:  This term encompasses virtually every aspect of what you do in an exercise session, including: the exercises, reps and sets you do of strength training, aerobic conditioning, the order in which you perform the exercises, the length of time spent.  To keep workouts interesting, many people change their routine from time to time.  Your routine is also referred to as your “program” or your “workout.”


Rheumatoid Arthritis:  An inflammatory disease that affects the facet joints in the spine as well as other joints in the body including the hands, elbows, shoulders, fingers and toes.


Ruptured Disk:  Herniated disk where material from the disk pushes through the outer lining of the disk.

We feature " Biomedical Acupuncture for Pain Management" as taught to Dr. Dixon personally by Dr. Yun-Tao Ma PhD.  Dr. Ma teaches Biomedical Acupuncture 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. In addition to acupuncture we 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 Private Acupuncture Clinic.
