Biography

Dr. Stephen Ford is a graduate of Texas Chiropractic College, where he earned the degrees; Doctorate of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. He completed a sports injury rotation at Rice University, where he worked on the rehabilitation of athletes from all sports at the university. Dr. Ford has focused his training on addressing the skeleton, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerve entrapments. He specializes in soft tissue and musculoskeletal injuries that occur with many athletes and non-athletes alike. His undergraduate studies were done at the University of Wyoming with a major in Pre-Med/Kinesiology and Health Promotion. While attending the University of Wyoming, he was deployed to Bagram, Afghanistan in the summer of 2007 and during that deployment he decided he wanted to be a chiropractor with a sports emphasis. He was part of the Wyoming Air National Guard, United States Air Force, where he was a fitness specialist from 2006 - 2012. Dr. Ford and his wife, Alyssa, live in Katy with their 2 young girls. He understands your desire to get well, and he will work diligently to return you to your activities as quickly and safely as possible. Whether you are suffering from back pain, neck and shoulder pain, elbow, knee or ankle and foot pain, Dr. Ford will take the time and devise a personal plan that is unique to your individual needs and goals. He finds great joy in helping patients avoid surgical intervention and has a true passion for bringing his patients back to true health though chiropractic. Dr. Ford is also certified in Animal Chiropractic by the Animal Chiropractic Certification Commission (ACCC) of the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). He completed 210+ hours of the post-graduate certification program, accredited by The American Veterinary Chiropractic Association at Parker University in Dallas, TX. Chiropractic can be helpful for animals as well who need to restore proper nervous system function, biomechanics, and reduce pain, in the same way it does for the human body.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Dynamic Spine and Performance (DSP) offers conservative health care management to individuals and families suffering from musculoskeletal issues. Chiropractic manipulation, along with soft tissue therapy techniques are performed to restore motion to areas that have been altered from the normal biomechanics, end pain and prevent future injury. Our goal is to find the root of the dysfunction, remove all interference to allow the body to perform at its highest potential, and prevent dysfunction from reoccurring by educating the patient on how to maintain his/her health. ​Patients are provided an utmost level of professionalism, quality of care, trust and compassion. DPS uses an evidence based (biomechanical and physiological approach) and case specific management. We offer chiropractic manipulative therapy, ARP Wave Therapy, myofascial release therapy, insturment assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), trigger point therapy, active care and rehab, along with nutritional consulting, home care and lifestyle recommendations to enhance the quality of life. Our mission is to provide an unequal level of chiropractic healthcare to the Greater Houston, Katy and Cypress communities and beyond. We want to serve as an educator and leader in the community. DSP aims to promote the well being of all patients while helping each to achieve and maintain the highest quality of life.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I really like to treat sport related injuries, due to the fact that I am a very active individual, but I treat anything from chronic pain to plain dull achy pain, whether it is in the back, neck, arms, hips or legs. I also have added animal chiropractic and love to treat animals of all sorts, from dogs to horses.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I have been acknowledged as one of Houston's Top 3 Chiropractors in 2013 and most recently been awarded "Patients' Choice Winner" for 2015 by Opencare. I also am the sports injury doctor for Premier Baseball of Texas treating kids to professional athletes.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I specialize in a variety of treatments, however my top three are ARP Wave Therapy, Myofascial Release Therapy and Animal Chiropractic
