Meet The Doctors

Dr. Lauren Nitschmann, D.C. is a Chiropractor at River Oaks

Dr. Lauren Nitschmann joined the The Joint Chiropractic family of local healthcare providers in 2017 when she became the clinic director for the River Oaks location in Houston. A graduate of the University of Houston, where she received a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, she earned her doctorate from Texas Chiropractic College.

“The most gratifying thing about being in the field of chiropractic is being able to return people to activities that they were unable to perform due to pain, and showing them how to prevent the same issue from occurring in the future,” Dr. Nitschmann says. “The other thing that’s so great is the wonderful patients I’ve met. These people actually care about their health and are interested in preventative medicine and living a healthy lifestyle.”

Dr. Nitschmann and her husband Tyler also enjoy living the healthy lifestyle. In their spare time away from their tabby cat named Luna, they enjoy exercising, biking, running, and spending time with friends and family.

“Health is like money,” Dr. Nitschmann says. “We never have a true idea of its value until we lose it. Preventative healthcare is the best way to stop pain before it starts. Chiropractic care is a great way to decrease and prevent pain and ensure the body is moving optimally.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

In spite of all her healthy living, Dr. Nitschmann says the one thing she must have in her refrigerator is ice cream. “It’s my weakness,” she says. “I don’t eat it every day, but my freezer feels empty if I don’t have any. Plus, it’s my reward for hard training days.”

Those hard training days is something she would love to talk about with 2018 Ironman World Champion Danela Ryf, who would be on the short list of guests for Dr. Nitschmann’s fantasy dinner party. She would also include Jesus Christ, Albert Einstein, and Mother Teresa. “I feel like that group covers a lot of different time periods and all have been very influential to the world or to me personally,” she says. “I’m always trying to better myself as an individual and a doctor.”

Dr. Nitschmann says the coolest thing she has ever done was complete an Ironman competition, which includes running, cycling and swimming. “It is a true test of mental and physical endurance and not people can say they have finished one,” she says.
