Dr. Fatima Bangura was hit by a car at the age of 16 years old which resulted in frequent headaches. She became fascinated with chiropractic after her first treatment. She received her Biology degree from the University of Northern Iowa and went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Dr. Fatima enjoys helping and educating people about chiropractic and its benefits. Asides from chiropractic, Dr. Fatima enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
Dr. Mary Tran joined The Joint Chiropractic in Katy while serving as an adjunct professor at Lone Star College, a gig she continues even today even though she isn’t that far removed from college herself. She graduated from the University of Houston in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology-exercise science. Later, she then went on to earn bachelor degrees in anatomy, and health and wellness, as well as her doctorate of chiropractic, in 2014 at Parker University in Dallas.
She joined the Katy location in January 2017, but also works at The Joint’s Copperfield, Cypress, Cinco Ranch, Kingwood and Cy-Fair locations.
With such a strong educational foundation steeped in anatomy and how the body works, it’s no wonder that Dr. Tran is driven by “helping people get out of pain and restoring motion back into their bodies after having to live with dysfunction for so long,”
“Increasing the quality of one’s life is the most rewarding part of being the chiropractic field,” she says, adding that she’s fond of the saying, “Your health is your wealth.”
“With my cultural background, we took a more natural and holistic approach to healthcare,” Dr. Tran explains. “Taking preventative measures and maintaining your health through good habits is the type of environment I grew up in. The philosophy of chiropractic was congruent with my upbringing, and that’s when I knew it was my calling. My father had carpal tunnel syndrome and was advised for surgery. After watching his fellow peers have unsuccessful results, he sought chiropractic care. Through several treatments, his symptoms disappeared and he avoided surgery.”
Because of that moment, and that background and commitment to others, Dr. Tran says “bringing/increasing the quality of life through affordable chiropractic care” is what she likes best about being at The Joint’s Katy location.
When she’s not helping others, Dr. Tran enjoys attending festivals, cooking, trying new restaurants, and going to the movies and comedy shows. She also practices Krav Maga, a military style of self-defense -- though she prefers the healing arts.
In Case You Didn’t Know:
Dr. Tran is a big fan of great food, but she loves keeping a good juice on hand at all times, whether it’s orange, grapefruit or Kombucha. “Why? I’m not sure,” she says, “but it makes me happy.”
What would also make her happy is the opportunity to dine with some of her favorite personalities. If she could choose a foursome to join her at one of the great restaurants she seeks out in Houston, she would choose Food Network chef Ina Garten (“I adore her and her recipes”), financial guru Suze Orman (“I’d pick her mind on business management, what made her successful, and get some financial advice”), the Dalai Lama (“to spiritually guide me through the art of happiness”) and Ellen DeGeneres (“she’s incredibly funny, optimistic, and I admire her philanthropic work”).
Maybe someday Dr. Tran could visit the Dalai Lama on his turf. She loves to travel. “Adventure is the best gift you can give yourself,” she says. “Making memories and experiences are far more valuable than money will ever be.”
