Dr. Donald Thigpen
Your Chiropractor in The Woodlands

"About 8 years ago I injured my back while working. The pain I experienced was like nothing I had ever felt before, it was blinding, excruciating pain. Searing, pain would strike any time I coughed, sneezed, laughed, or took a step. I couldn't stand from a seated position without horrific pain. I couldn't walk without crying out in pain with each step. Dr. Thigpen ran some tests and determined that I had numerous herniated disks. After discussing my options, feeling I was too young for surgery, I decided to take a less invasive, therapeutic approach with Dr. Thigpen. I faced possible permanent nerve damage, and decreased mobility. After taking Dr. Thigpen's advice and adhering closely to his orders, I began to recuperate, and I was able to return to my normal daily living, pain free. I didn't need surgery or medications. Dr. Thigpen is a compassionate, and caring individual, and these qualities carry into his practice. He passionately strives to help you achieve your best, whole body, healing. I can't ever thank him enough for helping to restore my back. I would recommend him to anyone wishing to return to a healthier, pain free quality of life."

I first visited Core Health Chiropractic several weeks ago when I experienced the most excruciating pain in my lower back. I literally was not able to walk, bend over, or even get out of bed without assistance. To be honest, even though I was in horrible pain, I was skeptical of going to a chiropractor, I just wanted to get pain Meds and be done with it... But Dr. Thigpen assessed my problem and educated me on the steps to recovery. After only a few sessions, I was able to walk again (without Pain Meds). At the time I thought, "it's a miracle!" I couldn't believe therapy and natural anti-inflammatory supplements could help me so much! His friendly staff is also amazing from Kathy - in the front office, to Diane - the office manager who always makes sure I'm comfortable, to Alex who is the best Massage Therapist I have ever encountered. She truly is a miracle worker!! Not only have they helped me with my pain, they took care of the insurance claim process and let me worry about getting better. I am thankful for finding Core Health Chiropractic, I will never go anyone else and will be recommending them to all my friends and family. Thank you Dr. Thigpen!!!!!

  • "I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 13 years ago and suffered with pain and chronic fatigue. My husband had been seeing Dr. Thigpen for a while and had great success managing pain in his back. I decided to see if I could get relief as well. I was immediately impressed with the thorough consultation and treatment recommendations by Dr. Thigpen. For years I had suffered with headaches and pain in my hips. After just a few adjustments and an exercise plan, my headaches and hip pain are few and far between. Now I just see Dr. Thigpen on a maintenance schedule. I would urge anyone suffering with pain to visit Dr. Thigpen."

  • "About two years ago I suffered with incredible tailbone pain. Unexplainable pain that would keep me from sitting for more than 30 minutes, standing for any length of time, and just miserable overall. I saw Dr. Thigpen over several visits and with the help of him and his facility I have been able to get back to enjoying life. I can now drive long distances without having to worry about stopping and my sleep has been restored. Thank you Dr. Thigpen for all that you do!"

  • "I have known Dr. Thigpen since chiropractic college. He is a very dedicated and ethical person. He is always looking to deliver his best in everything that he does. He is a perfectionist, loves his profession and loves to help people. I would highly recommend Dr. Thigpen to my family and friends."

  • "Dr. Thigpen... I can tell that you are a kind and compassionate doctor who really cares about helping others live healthy and productive lives. I will definitely make sure that others in our community are aware of your location and services!"

  • "I began treatment at Core Health Chiropractic & Natural Medicine a few months ago. I was very skeptical at first since I had never received chiropractic care at all. I was having severe pain from a pinched nerve in my neck and shoulder. I was living off of ibuprofen daily and at times the pain was so severe I was unable to move, I was contorted and it was difficult to breathe. I had no idea the severity of my situation until after my x-rays were reviewed.

    After a few treatments I began to notice a change in my range of motion and I was feeling better overall. For about two months now I have not needed ibuprofen at all. The pain is GONE! Dr. Thigpen is absolutely AMAZING! He and his staff are very professional and very attentive to my needs. I would absolutely recommend him to everyone I know!"

  • "I came to CORE with some instability of the knee, from the moment I walked in I was greeted by Kathy and Dianne who were both exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. They took my info in before the appointment, and got me in quickly. Dr. Thigpen gave me some treatment options to discuss, and we picked a plan that was best for me, he knew more about what was going on with my body than I did. Doc is helping me develop stretching techniques that I can do on my own to help prevent the problems I was having (Notice i say WAS). And then I get to see Alex for my twice a week massage, she wont make it unbearable and will take it easy if it is too painful in certain spots. Also the office is new and fancy and doesn't smell like a Doctors office so that is definitely a plus!! Love this place!"

  • "I see Dr. Thigpen and Alexandria on a regular basis. I trust that they have my best interests in mind. They don't adjust or massage any areas that aren't needed. They believe that they body can heal itself, it just sometimes needs a little correction to further the process. I recommend anyone with pains to let the Dr. and Alex heal them."

  • "came to Core Chiropractic and Natural Medicine after several months of severe pain in my upper left shoulder. After a complete evaluation by Dr. Thigpen including an MRI and X-Ray's the Doc found the problem. After a week of treatment I started to notice improvement. The pain was actually going away. I am still receiving treatment due to the severity of the problem but I am making remarkable progress! The staff is wonderful , and I would highly recommend Core Chiropractic and Natural Medicine."

  • "I have 3 bulging discs in my neck and my physical therapist said that I most likely have at least one more in my back. Going to a chiropractor was very scary for me but finding the right Chiropractor makes all the difference. I recently moved to the Houston area and had been without an adjustment for way too long because I was afraid of not being able to find another great Chiropractor in the area. Dr. Thigpen is not only extremely professional and knowledgable, he also cares very much about his patients and their overall health. After my first adjustment from him I knew I found the right person! I would highly recommend him to anyone, no matter what their particular issues may be."
    Nikki R.
  • "I have been adjusted and massaged by Dr. Thigpen on several occasions. I always feel and function better which positively affects my spirits and attitude. Dr. Thigpen is one of the most knowledgeable doctors of any type that I have ever known, and he generally cares for his work and patients. Thanks Dr. Thigpen! You're the BEST!!!"
    Dr. Chrissy Burke
  • "Having been treated by Dr. Thigpen several years ago in Louisiana, I was excited to find out that he'd relocated to the Houston area. Dr. Thigpen is a consummate professional and can pinpoint where I'm having problems just by the way I'm sitting. I appreciate that he offers a variety of methods for treatment and that he gives me practical suggestions for ways to improve my lifestyle and health. As always, his staff is top notch."
    Rebecca R.

    Dr. Tony Butts
  • "I had knee pain for years. After multiple visits to an orthopedic, steroid shots and PT it still hurt. Dr. Thigpen and his massage therapist, Alex, relieved the pain I had been suffering from after just a few short weeks. I couldn't believe it! Now my husband and son both see him. I am so thankful for Core Health Chiropractic. Dr. Thigpen's office staff is amazing and genuinely cares for their patients."
    April R.
  • "I was involved in a car accident recently and injured my back. I went to see Dr. Thigpen at Core Health Chiropractic. Him and his staff were very professional and helpful. He had me do some therapy exercises along with massage therapy and decompression. He adjusted my lower back and neck to realign everything back into proper place. If you are looking for a dr. that is knowledgeable in what treatments work for you, then Dr. Thigpen and his staff are the ones to see. Also his office is very inviting and relaxing to visit. You surely will not be disappointed!!"
    Sheri B.
  • "I graduated from Chiropractic School with Dr. Thigpen, and I have to say that he was always one of the most knowledgeable people that I ever interacted with while we were there. Dr. Thigpen is the type to always be willing to listen and learn as well as share his own knowledge with those he comes into contact with. If you are needing a great doctor in the northern Houston area, Dr. Thigpen should definitely be toward the top of your list."
    Dr. Matt Parsons
  • "Dr. Thigpen & Staff,

Words cannot express my feelings, nor my thanks for all your help! You guys are the best! You make the world a better place for all those whose lives you touch. Hope all the good care you give to others comes back to you."
