Benton Chiropractic Clinic has been serving the Lampasas area since 1988. Dr. Benton performed his undergraduate studies at Slippery Rock State College in Pennsylvania, and completed his doctor of chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College graduating in 1985. Dr. Benton's focus is on musculoskeletal conditions mostly lower back pain, neck pain, headaches but also working with auto accidents, sports injuries, knee and shoulder pain, and exercise therapy. Dr. Benton was a participant in the DELIVERY research project through the University of Pittsburgh school of Medicine. The research project involved learning about evidence based medicine which helps the patient get better quicker and with less costs.
We are one of 20 chiropractic clinics in the State of Texas which are involved in a Federally Funded Study on Chiropractic Care for Chronic Neck and Lower Back Pain. This study is being adminstered by UCLA, RAND, and Samueli Institute. This project is about why patients choose chiropractic care for chronic pain and how to improve care of chronic pain.
We are also involved in a research project called Safetynet. This is through the University of Alberta, Canada and is the largest study to date on the safety of chiropractic care.
