How the Brain to Body System Provides Chronic Pain Relief in Trammels, TX

To reverse chronic pain and/or nerve disease, areas of the body that have become weak due to disease or injury must be strengthened. This includes your brain, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and cells. Our experts here at Texas Nerve and Spine developed the most advanced pain and nerve therapy system to do all of this and more, and we call it the Brain to Body System.

From fibromyalgia and disc herniations to diabetic neuropathy and sciatica, our Brain to Body System helps restore your health and corrects the causes of your problems. Unlike treatments from other nerve and spine clinics, our system provides long-term relief without relying on invasive surgeries or dangerously addictive pharmaceutical medications.

To understand how our Brain to Body System solves chronic pain and similar conditions like nerve disease, you need a basic knowledge of the conditions themselves. That way, you can understand why so many who suffer from them rarely improve.

Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain

This is a type of pain that does not get better on its own or that doesn't alleviate after traditional medical treatments or prescription pain meds.

Nerve Disease

Nerve Disease

This is a type of pain that does not get better on its own or that doesn't alleviate after traditional medical treatments or prescription pain meds.

Chronic pain from nerve diseases and serious injuries causes a domino effect within your body. It starts with inflammation, which leads to decreased blood supply. This reduced blood supply results in a lack of oxygen. When your body doesn't get enough oxygen, it loses crucial nutrients that your body needs. This progressive effect often leads to long-term problems such as:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Motor-Function Loss
  • Loss of Sensation
  • Muscular Atrophy
  • Loss of Movement
  • Depression

But with Texas Nerve and Spine's Brain to Body system, patients suffering from chronic pain and nerve disease build strength through rehabilitation. This advanced system helps:

  • Stimulate New Nerve Pathways
  • Strengthen and Grow Muscles
  • Promotes Cellular Repair
  • Improves Circulation and Blood Flow

Our Brain to Body System is central to our approach to chronic musculoskeletal pain relief and chronic nerve pain relief in Trammels, TX. By following the Brain to Body system, we can provide several services to patients suffering from chronic pain and nerve damage.

EWOT:Exercise with Oxygen Therapy

Here's a fact you might not know: Breathing in higher levels of oxygen than you normally take in actually helps improve your health. Also called EWOT, exercising with oxygen is a technique that increases oxygen circulation at a much more rapid pace than oxygen therapy alone. Create New Blood Cells

How Does EWOT Work?

At Texas Nerve and Spine, our doctors use the NuStep Recumbent Cross Trainer to help achieve the aforementioned benefits. This specialized machine trains your muscles, brain, and nerves to work together, which supports your body's healing processes. While using the NuStep Recumbent Cross Trainer, patients are hooked up to an oxygen generator to enjoy the benefits of EWOT and reach their chronic pain relief goals.

When you oxygenate your blood with EWOT, it can have amazing benefits that can:

  • Restore Blood Flow
  • Improve Oxygen Circulation
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Boost Energy
  • Increase Strength

TherapyFlexion/Distraction Therapy

Many patients who visit Texas Nerve and Spine are suffering from an injury or disease of the vertebral discs of their spine. It requires the right kind of care from highly specialized doctors. If you're in search of a safe, gentle, controlled treatment for back and spinal pain, Flexion Distraction therapy may be for you.

 Knee Pain Specialist Trammels, TX

How Does Flexion/Distraction Therapy Work?

Finding relief for this type of condition and pain is often easier said than done. Fortunately, relief is right around the corner at Texas Nerve and Spine. Our Flexion/Distraction Table stretches the spine safely and gently, allowing injured tissue and damaged discs the chance to heal and become hydrated, which lets the affected area recover more effectively and efficiently.

Patients looking for chronic back and neck pain relief in Trammels, TX choose Flexion/Distraction therapy because it:

  • Fosters Healing in Damaged Discs
  • Removes Pressure on Spinal Nerves
  • Is Non-Invasive
  • Is Cost-Effective
  • Does Not Require Downtime
  • Has No Risk of Infection
  • Provides Quicker, Easier Healing

LaserLaser Therapy

With more than 50 million adults in America suffering from chronic pain, it makes sense that most of them want a solution that doesn't require pain medication or harmful surgery. That's where laser therapy from Texas Nerve and Spine comes into play. Laser therapy has been used for therapeutic purposes in medical environments for years. In fact, it is FDA-approved and backed by more than 2,500 research studies, which have demonstrated its efficacy in chronic musculoskeletal pain relief in Trammels, TX.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Though laser therapy is a common treatment option, not all lasers are the same. Our Class IV laser therapy, used in all applicable programs, is the most efficacious and powerful laser available for tissue healing and regeneration and healing. Class IV lasers use photobiomodulation, which provides excellent results for Musculoskeletal disorders. This process has also been proven to help with other various conditions that cause chronic pain, such as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, shoulder pain, and much more.

Our chronic pain patients choose laser therapy from Texas Nerve and Spine because it:

  • Provides Significant Relief Without Pain or Side Effects
  • Cost-Effective

TherapyMotor Function Re-Training Therapy

When your motor functions are limited or non-existent due to a serious injury or surgery, it can ruin your life. You lose the ability to be independent - one of the hallmarks of being human. Fortunately, with motor function re-training at Texas Nerve and Spine, patients suffering from motor function issues have a light at the end of the tunnel. This type of specialized physical therapy helps people recover from injuries or surgeries that leave their motor functions lacking. The goal of motor function re-training is to regain coordination and strength in the areas affecting the patient.

Motor function re-training therapy is a crucial part of the motor function rehabilitation process because it helps patients regain the independence they lost. Perhaps equally important, it also helps them return to their original level of motor function or better.

 Herniated Disc Specialist Trammels, TX

How Does Motor Function Re-Training Work?

Based on our Brain to Body system, our specialists design custom exercise programs based on our patient's motor function needs. Depending on the type of injury and lack of motor skills associated with it, we may also use electrical stimulation and other modalities for more effective treatment and recovery.

Motor function re-training provides many benefits for affected patients, including:

  • Improved Flexibility
  • More Strength
  • Better Range of Motion
  • Re-Claim Independence
  • Live a Normal Life

ReleaseMyofascial Release Therapy

Myofascial Release therapy gives patients chronic pain relief in Trammels, TX, and boosts joint mobility by loosening up restricted, tight muscles. Though there are similarities to traditional massages, myofascial release therapy focuses on soft tissues and the muscular system in your body to relieve tension and stress on muscles.

How Does Myofascial Release Therapy Work?

Restricted muscles have reduced blood flow and less oxygen. When this happens, it leads to limited movement and pain that is often intense. Our program uses state-of-the-art technology to apply acute, high-velocity vibration directly to the affected tissue to provide the patient with the environment necessary to increase mobility which, over time, can exponentially reduce pain

Benefits of this type of treatment include:

  • Improved Tissue Recovery
  • Reduced Soreness
  • Improved Joint Range of Motion
  • Improved Blood Flow
  • Better Neuromuscular Efficiency
 Herniated Disc Therapy Trammels, TX

ActivationNeuro Activation Wall Therapy

As is the case with any spinal cord injury, the nerves around the spine get weak. When this happens, pain develops, and recovery is halted. Suppose you're searching for a safe, effective way to deal with a painful spine issue like sciatica or a herniated disc. In that case, neuro impulse therapy is a great chronic nerve pain treatment in Trammels, TX. Unlike common chiropractic treatments, this advanced therapy does not involve any "cracking" or significant adjustments.

 Leg Pain Specialist Trammels, TX

How Does Neuro Activation Wall Therapy Work?

Any type of injury can cause dysfunction and weakness in your brain. To improve cognition and the neurological connection between the brain, the muscles, and the nerves, some injured patients choose to undergo interactive neurocognitive therapy using our neuro activation wall. Our neuro activation wall retains, strengthens, and restores proper function to the brain and nervous system without relying on medications or outlandish therapies.

Texas Nerve and Spine patients choose neuro activation wall therapy because it:

  • Improves Cognition
  • Strengthens Nerves That Have Been Damaged
  • Boosts Balance and Mobility
  • Is Non-Invasive
  • Does Not Require Addictive Medicines
  • Does Not Require Recovery Time
  • Does Not Present Any Risk of Infection

TherapyNeuro Impulse Therapy

As is the case with any spinal cord injury, the nerves around the spine get weak. When this happens, pain develops, and recovery is halted. Suppose you're searching for a safe, effective way to deal with a painful spine issue like sciatica or a herniated disc. In that case, neuro impulse therapy is a great chronic nerve pain treatment in Trammels, TX. Unlike common chiropractic treatments, this advanced therapy does not involve any "cracking" or significant adjustments.

How Does Neuro Impulse Therapy Work?

  • Re-Training Nerves to Work Again
  • Strengthen Nerves
  • Dramatically Speed Up Injury Recovery
  • Quickly Reduces Pain
 Leg Pain Therapy Trammels, TX

PeripheralNeuropathy Rehabilitation

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when there is a lack of blood flow to the nerves in areas like your feet and hands. When these nerves are devoid of blood, they begin to decay and degenerate because they don't have enough oxygen or nutrients. Eventually, the nerves in your body shrivel up, causing pain, numbness, balance problems, and other painful symptoms.

How Does Peripheral Neuropathy Rehabilitation Work?

Our Brain to Body program works wonders for neuropathy issues like these by using state-of-the-art technology like laser therapy and personalized, strategic plans of action created around our patient's needs. If you're looking for both short and long-term pain relief from peripheral neuropathy, this could be the solution you need.

 Neuropathy Trammels, TX

TherapySpinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal conditions range in severity from barely noticeable to absolutely crippling. To get to the bottom of your spine conditions, our team uses X-Rays to pinpoint the location of your spine's disease. From there, we craft a custom rehabilitation program that addresses the underlying causes of your spine pain. Often, part of that therapy includes spinal decompression.

Pain Specialist Trammels, TX

How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?

Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. When the spine is stretched, it changes its position. This change relieves pressure off the discs in your spine, which act as cushions in your back. By creating negative pressure, herniated and bulging discs retract, giving the nerves and structures in your back relief. This relief sends nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen to the discs in your back so they can heal properly.

Last year, Dallas billionaire Andy Beal bought two of the most expensive houses in North Texas.

The Hicks Estate on Walnut Hill was priced at $100 million — an all-time record for Dallas.

And the Trammell Crow estate on Preston Road was originally listed for sale at more than $50 million.

A year later, Beal is selling the Hicks property. And he's getting ready to tear down the more than century-old Trammell Crow house in Highland Park.

DFW Pre-Demolition and Estate Sales has been hired to sell the fixtures and building materials inside the 10,000-square-foot house.

The five-bedroom home between Preston and Turtle Creek was built in 1912 for a Dallas cotton baron.

"I have like two weeks to schedule appointments to get stuff out," said Rhonda Hunnicutt, owner of DFW Pre-Demolition. "The property is very extensive.

"There are some neat architectural things someone might want."

Hunnicutt said all the fixtures in the house, hardwood floors, cabinetry, wooden trim, etc. is up for grabs.

"It has two magnificent ballroom areas," she said.

Hunnicutt is advertising the materials for sale.

"I can't believe how much response I've gotten," she said.

The Tudor-style mansion was built for Dallas businessman Henry Lee Edwards. The home was designed by Illinois architect C.D. Hill, who also did the Oak Lawn United Methodist Church, the old Dallas City Hall on Harwood Street and the Davis Building — originally Republic National Bank.

The house sits on 6 acres and was purchased in 1961 by the late real estate developer Trammell Crow and his wife.

Beal just hired Dallas real estate agent Allie Beth Allman to sell the 25-acre former Hicks estate, which Beal never occupied. The house is listed for sale at $48.9 million.

It was never disclosed how much Beal paid for the Hicks property, but real estate agents said it was far below the original $100 million asking price.

FORT WORTH, TX – The Conroe Economic Development Council (CEDC), City of Conroe, Trammell Crow Company, and The Home Depot received a pair of Community Economic Development Awards (CEDA) from the Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) for their recent Conroe project. The awards were presented October 14 at TEDC’s Annual Conference in Fort Worth.

The CEDC nominated developer Trammell Crow Company and their client, The Home Depot, for their role in the development of a distribution center in Conroe. Developed on a remediated Superfund site, the project required a significant brownfield redevelopment and the reactivation of a rail spur near Conroe’s downtown district. The project also helped spur the North Porter Road Expansion, a key north to south extension of FM 1314 through Conroe.

The project received the CEDA in the category of communities with a population between 50,001 and 100,000, as well as the award for Community Commitment and Leverage among all the 55 applications submitted across Texas, regardless of population.

“We are incredibly honored that the Texas Economic Development Council recognized this critically important development through the Community Economic Development Awards. This was one of the most complex projects the Conroe Economic Development Council has ever worked, making it even more rewarding,” said Danielle Scheiner, CEDC Executive Director. “The project was a result of hard work and collaboration. Everyone who played a role should be very proud.”

“Our Community Economic Development Award is one of the ways in which our organization honors the excellent work done by our communities, their leaders, and their economic development professionals,” offered Greg Sims, 2021 Chair of the Texas Economic Development Council. “Each community nominated achieved excellence in economic development and substantially improved the economic base of their respective regions. The recipient communities in each population category were recognized for extraordinary accomplishments in meeting the criteria set forth in the nomination process.”

The mission of the Conroe Economic Development Council is to enhance the strength and stability of the greater Conroe economy through the support of existing industry and the attraction of manufacturing and service sector business, which bring new capital and employment opportunities into the community.

ARLINGTON – In a different world, new Wings head coach Latricia Trammell’s introduction to the franchise would have happened years ago.

The team pursued Trammell to be the lead assistant under coach Vickie Johnson each of the past two offseasons. But Trammell decided both times to stay in Los Angeles as an assistant for the Sparks.

“It just wasn’t the right timing,” Trammell told The Dallas Morning News on Friday. “I think things happen for a reason, and I think if I would have accepted that, I wouldn’t be sitting here in front of you today.”

When Trammell saw the news in September that the Dallas head coaching job was open, she immediately called Wings president and CEO Greg Bibb. She even joked she had him on speed dial in case the position ever opened.

Trammell wanted the job, and she got it. The team officially announced the hire Monday after agreeing to a deal last week.

“I’ve watched Dallas closely for the last several years,” Trammell said. “I’m just inspired about the unlimited talent that’s on this team.”

Red River roots

Trammell’s road to her first WNBA head coaching job is a unique one, especially in a league where most coaches build their resumes in pro basketball or high-level college hoops.

“Coach Trammell has proven to be a winner at every level of basketball she has coached, including the WNBA.” Bibb said. “I have long admired the approach Latricia takes with coaching, which includes exhaustive preparation, an emphasis on communication and relationships, and a continual desire to learn and grow her craft.”

Trammell grew up in the central Oklahoma town of Seminole, the youngest of four with three older, basketball-playing brothers.

One of her brothers, Donny, was the head boys basketball coach at Seminole High when Trammell attended the school. She would spend her winter days practicing two hours with the girls team and then stick around and spend another two hours practicing with the boys. All the work paid off. Trammell scored over 40 points 15 times in high school, including a career-high 46 points in a game.

But the extra time in the gym also opened her eyes to the world of coaching as she watched the joy and impact it had on her brother.

“I just saw the rewards that he was experiencing and the relationships he was building with his players, and I thought, you know what, I want to be a part of that,” Trammell said.

She earned her first head coaching at Midwest City High in Oklahoma in the late 1990s. She then crossed the Red River in 1999 to take the top job at Denton Ryan. In three seasons with the Raiders, Trammell was named district Coach of the Year twice and took the program to its first state tournament.

She left Ryan in 2002 and jumped up to the college ranks, spending the next decade-and-a-half at five schools across three levels.

The pinnacle of her college career came in her home state as the head coach at Oklahoma City University. In three seasons, she went 85-10 and won back-to-back NAIA national championships in 2014 and 2015.

While she was making a name for herself in college, it was her time at Ryan that led to her entering the WNBA.

Monesha Allen replaced Trammell as head coach at Ryan and has stayed there ever since. About six years ago, Johnson, who had been hired as the head coach for the San Antonio Stars, was looking to add someone to her coaching staff.

“Vickie reached out to her and asked her, do you know anyone that’s a hard worker, good person, loyal that would be a great coach in the league,” Trammell said. “I hadn’t talked to her in like 15 years. I’m the only name that she gave.”

There are 11 head coaches in the WNBA. Only three of them, including Trammell, have coached below the Division I level. Trammell is the lone one to coach at the Division II or NAIA level.

It has been a climb for Trammell to reach the top of the coaching heap, which she calls a dream come true. But it is also something she believed she could accomplish.

“I was inducted into the Seminole State Hall of Fame and my high school hall of fame,” Trammell said. “I was asked that question: ‘Did you ever think walking the halls of Seminole State that you would ever coach professional basketball?’ And I just looked him in the eye and said, ‘You’re dadgum right.’”

All about relationships

Over her time in San Antonio and Los Angeles, Trammell developed a well-earned reputation as a great defensive coach. She plans on bringing her up-tempo, get-after-it style of play to North Texas.

But she views her ability to form relationships — like the ones she first saw her brother Donny developing decades ago — as the hallmark of her coaching style.

“When I first entered the league, someone told me, ‘Now listen, don’t build relationships. You’re going to have to change. It’s a business. Players will come and go. Just do your work and get out,’” Trammell said. “I am so glad that I didn’t do that.”

A self-described over-communicator, Trammell’s first step as head coach is going to be contacting the Wings players and beginning to build those relationships.

At the top of the list is franchise cornerstone Arike Ogunbowale, who is entering the first year of her supermax extension.

Trammell will be Ogunbowale’s third coach in five WNBA seasons. The two talked briefly during the hiring process, Trammell said, and the first-year head coach is excited for the opportunity to work with the two-time All-Star.

“Arike and I are going to have to be hooked at the hip,” Trammell said. “She is a dynamic player. I’m so looking forward to getting to know her better; building that relationship with her; continuing to enhance her skill set; and growing and developing her into one of the top elite players in the league.”

But Trammell doesn’t want these relationships to be strictly on-the-court endeavors. She views her connections with players as bonds that extend outside of basketball. Supporting each player’s ambitions and goals on the court goes hand-in-hand with supporting their off-the-court aspirations and interests as well.

There’s over five months until training camps starts, and the hectic WNBA offseason is far from over. But Trammell can’t wait until April.

“I’m drawn to this team so much because they’re hungry,” Trammell said. “You can see it on the court, and I know they’re wanting to take that next step. I want to help them do that.”

The top officer of Dallas’ largest real estate development firm is headed out the door.

Mike Lafitte has been CEO of Trammell Crow Co. since 2020.

Lafitte was previously the global chief executive officer of real estate investments for commercial property giant CBRE Group which has owned Crow Co. since 2006.

The departure of Lafitte from the company he’s worked for since 1997 was disclosed in a company filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that said it was “mutually agreed that Mr. Lafitte would depart from the company on February 17, 2023.”

Lafitte is a global group president and also oversaw CBRE’s client care program.

“Serving as CEO of Trammell Crow Co. for the past few years has been the honor of my life in business,” Lafitte said in a statement. “Now I am looking forward to serving on various boards, investing in real estate along with other business opportunities, staying active in the community and spending more quality time with family and friends.

“On the business side, I intend on staying active more as an investor in real estate deals and looking for opportunities where I can add value along with investing,” Lafitte said in a message. ”I have been blessed with a great career and intend on staying active.”

CBRE said that Lafitte after his departure will be “pursuing outside business and investment opportunities and personal interests.”

“During his 25-plus-year tenure, Mike has made major contributions to the enormous growth and positive change in our company,” CBRE CEO Bob Sulentic said in a statement. “Mike has been an exceptional ambassador for CBRE and TCC and we wish him great success in his personal and professional endeavors.”

The CEO role at Crow Co. will now be handled by Danny Queenan, CEO of CBRE’s real estate investments division. Queenan has headed the property firm’s investment sector — which includes the Crow Co. — since last year.

Trammell Crow Co., which was founded in Dallas in 1948, is the country’s largest commercial builder with a record $13.5 billion development pipeline at the end of the third quarter.

In North Texas, Crow Co. is a major developer of industrial buildings, offices and mixed-use developments.

Lafitte’s departure comes as CBRE is making significant cutbacks in operations and staffing to position the company for an expected recession and business slowdown.

In October, the company said it was targeting $400 million in cost reductions, “with the vast majority coming from headcount reductions.” The firm had a 16% year-over-year decline in its third quarter 2022 revenue.

CBRE is the country’s largest commercial property broker with 500 offices and more than 100,000 employees.

The company in 2020 relocated its headquarters from California to Dallas.

Trammell has been watching film, contacting every player and building relationships. And she gave a shoutout to the DFW community and the best fans in the world!

ARLINGTON, Texas — Welcome to Dallas!

Latricia Trammell was officially introduced as head coach Friday by Dallas Wings President and CEO Greg Bibb at Troy’s in Texas Live! in Arlington.

And before things got underway, Bibb honored veterans and WNBA star Brittany Griner, who has been wrongfully-detained in Russia.

He then spoke of why he believed Dallas was not only Trammell's job but her destination.

Trammell has spent the last four years as assistant coach for the Los Angeles Sparks. And prior to her stint with LA, she spent a season as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Stars, a former WNBA team that relocated to Las Vegas – eventually becoming the Aces.

So, she’s not exactly a stranger to Texas.

According to Bibb, she was top of mind when the organization decided to move in a different direction for head coach.

Bibb said he and Trammell met years ago, and she had a lasting impression due to her communication and genuine desire to build relationships with others.

So when he started the hiring process, Bibb said it was not only her resume that stood out, but her proven track record of 30 years of coaching experience across all levels, including two collegiate championships and awards.

"I couldn't find a darn person to say anything negative about her," laughed Bibb.

Trammell joked she's had Bibb on speed dial for years!

She expressed her excitement during her introduction, saying it was an honor and privilege to be sitting in her seat as the next head coach to lead a dynamic and talented team.

"I've tried to chest bump Greg twice this morning," she laughed.

Trammell said she's ready to make an immediate impact and take the Wings to the next level.

Then, she got teary-eyed explaining how hard she'll work for the team.

When asked what she would bring to the table and how she described herself, she answered, "passionate."

"[She] lives, breathes, eats and sleeps basketball," Bibb said.

Growing up, Trammell, an Oklahoma native, was influenced by her older brother who coach for several years, her sports family, and coach Sherry Cole with the University of Oklahoma. She also said sometimes your mentors are people you've never met like legendary women's basketball coach Pat Summitt.

After learning she was hired as the new head coach of the Wings, and ironically at a practice at OU, she said, "I sat down and thanked God."

Now, she's ready to go. Trammell has been watching film, contacting every player and building relationships with her new squad. Trammell gave a shoutout to the DFW community and the best fans in the world -- which played a role in realizing Dallas was the best fit.

The Wings have made back-to-back playoff appearances, yet it seems they just can't get over the hump in post-season wins.

Trammell is ready to right the ship, and a key she said is helping immediately with defense – her bread and butter. She led the Sparks to one of the top three best defenses for three consecutive years.

Trammell also said she hopes her players will buy-in, and made references to talent from the likes of Arike Ogunbowale, Satou Sabally, Marina Mabrey and Allisha Gray and more.

She wants to instill hard-grit and a bring a championship home. But the most important? Relationships.
