Oak Forest/ Garden Oaks Chiropractor Dr. Darla Thompson
Dr. Darla Thompson grew up in a small farming community in northwest Missouri. She was an avid basketball player and a captain of the 1980 State Championship Team which was inducted into the Missouri Basketball Hall of Fame.
After earning a Bachelor of Science Degree from Northwest Missouri State University, she served three years active duty in the United States Army as a Military Intelligence Officer, achieving the rank of Captain.
Upon completing active duty, she began working with handicapped children in Houston. Due to the physical nature of her job, Dr. Thompson suffered a severe back injury. As she began to regain her health through chiropractic, she also was inspired to pursue a new career in chiropractic.
In April of 1996, Dr. Thompson graduated Cum Laude from Texas Chiropractic College and was inducted into the Omega Psi Honor Society. She then opened her private practice, House of Chiropractic. Through seminars and workshops, she continues to advance and expand her education to stay on top of the latest research and techniques available.
In 2007, Dr. Thompson completed a rigorous three year post graduate neurology program with the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies. She achieved the certification of Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB).
Dr. Thompson is the only chiropractor in Houston who offers balance testing using the FDA-registered CAPS™ (Comprehensive Analysis of Postural Systems) machine. Measuring one’s balance is the most effective method of determining the integrity of the central nervous system.
