Favorite Quote: "Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person."
Dr. Jeff Ward is the original owner and Clinic Director of the Ward Chiropractic Center healthcare clinics in the Lake Jackson and Spring, Texas communities. The Auburn Lakes location in Spring is an expansion of Ward Chiropractic Center, Lake Jackson, and was established in the hopes of offering his specific style of treatment to more patients suffering with spinal disc injuries. While he uses many modalities of treatment, he truly believes spinal decompression has been a game changer in terms of disc healing for his practices. Although spinal disc rehabilitation is his passion, as an ex-collegiate athlete, he also has vast experience treating athletes in the acute and recovery stages of athletic injuries. Dr. Ward keeps his skills sharp by attending numerous professional development seminars throughout the year. He also continues to explore research and professional development relating to spinal decompression and has received national certifications in the treatment of disc related injuries using spinal decompression.
Dr. Ward is a graduate of Texas A&M University – College Station and earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management Information Systems. Early in his professional career he worked in consulting for three Fortune 500 companies – The Associates, CitiGroup and KMPG. After almost 5 years in the corporate world, he decided to pursue a more fulfilling career that would focus on helping others. Dr. Ward returned to school and received three additional professional degrees from Parker University in Dallas, Texas (a Bachelor of Science degree in Anatomy & Physiology, a Bachelor of Science degree in Health & Wellness, and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree).
Dr. Ward was raised in the small town of Sweeny, Texas, and is a 1993 honor graduate of Sweeny High School. He and his family returned to the Houston area in 2006 after living and working in Dallas for 8 years. Dr. Ward grew up playing a variety of sports, but his passions always led him to the tennis courts. He played collegiate tennis and while going through chiropractic school he taught as a tennis pro at Lakes Tennis Academy in Frisco, Texas. Dr. Ward and his family live in the Creekside Park township of The Woodlands. He and his wife, Amber, are proud parents of a daughter and two sons who attend school in the Tomball Independent School District.
