Our goal at Carmack Chiropractic and Sports Therapy is to facilitate healing and optimum physical performance through a partnership with our patients. By restoring balance to the body – muscle, joint and nerve – we provide a starting point where the patient can then take control of their health and well-being. The doctors here provide assessment and instruction on proper posture, exercise biomechanics, nutrition and lifestyle behaviors needed to maintain the health benefits achieved here in our office. At Carmack Chiropractic and Sports Therapy we use a proven systematic approach to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries and we call it The Carmack Protocol for soft tissue and joint injury. From professional athletes to grandparents, The Carmack Protocol is profoundly effective in the treatment of athletic injuries, chronic pain and stiffness and many of the functional difficulties normally associated with aging. It can be truly life changing.
What patients are saying
Dr. Billy Carmack is the owner and clinic director for Carmack Chiropractic and Sports Therapy. He is a native Texan, growing up in the Dallas area and attending the University of North Texas on a basketball scholarship. Upon finishing his academic and basketball career at UNT, Dr. Carmack traveled and worked throughout Europe for 3 years before discovering beach volleyball and relocating to Miami Beach, FL.
It was while competing on the East Coast pro-beach volleyball circuit that he experienced the awesome power of chiropractic and physical medicine. The injuries and chronic conditions that are a part of playing competitive sports had become debilitating for Dr. Carmack at a time when he should have been at peak physical condition and performance. Through a combination of chiropractic treatment, physical medicine and soft-tissue therapy, he was able to resume playing the sport he loved pain free and stronger than ever. It was this experience that ultimately led Dr. Carmack to return to school to pursue his chiropractic degree with the desire to bring this life-changing healing experience to other athletes and all those suffering from similar conditions.
Although the “spark had been lit” from these experiences, Dr. Carmack felt the time was not right and he continued traveling and playing beach volleyball. During this time – before entering chiropractic college – Dr. Carmack returned to UNT as a graduate student, earning a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology and Sports Psychology. In 2006 he returned to his hometown of Dallas to attend Parker College of Chiropractic, graduating in 2008. He has spent the last 10 years conceiving, developing and perfecting the Carmack Protocol for soft-tissue injury that is performed in the clinic today. Coupled with the amazing benefits of the chiropractic adjustment, we believe there is no better way to treat sports injuries and the chronic conditions of the modern world. Dr. Carmack has committed his life to being the best healing professional he can be and hopes you are willing to share the experience of healing your body with him!
Putting it all together…
The Carmack Protocol
The Carmack Protocol, or TCP, is a comprehensive system of chiropractic and soft tissue therapy developed to diagnose and treat neuromusculoskeletal (nerve, muscle, bone) injury and dysfunction. Conditions such as joint and muscle pain, spasm, headache, numbness, weakness, excessive tension and reduced range of motion typically respond extremely well to TCP.
Although the majority of the work is applied manually by the Doctor or trained practitioner, some use of therapeutic tools is relied upon. Myofascial therapy, active release technique, trigger point therapy, PNF stretching and the chiropractic adjustment are the primary modalities used in TCP. When applied by a knowledgeable, well trained practitioner TCP is incredibly effective as a first-line treatment for injuries whether acute or chronic, involving the joints, muscle, ligaments, tendons and fascia.
