All we care about is helping you feel better.
Our HealthWorks doctors use the most precise and objective diagnostics and goal-oriented customized care (with a special upper cervical chiropractic technique called Orthospinology) delivered in a community atmosphere to help our patients recover their health and keep it long-term.
Every member of our team truly cares for our patients, and you will be able to tell the HealthWorks difference from the moment you walk in our front door.
Pain is draining.
We know how discouraging health problems can be. And when there is no solution in sight? They can become devastating.
But with enough digging, the root of every problem can be found. We trace symptoms back to their source with a comprehensive F3 (full-body) exam. Once we uncover the culprit of your pain, we’ll determine lasting solutions so you can get back to feeling your best.
You deserve a solution,
so we don’t stop until we find one.

Dr. Jennifer Taylor, DC
I’ve always believed that there is no such thing as coincidences in life. Finding my passion for helping others through chiropractic care was no different. Each step in my life has brought me to where I am today; helping my community to become happier, healthier and live to their fullest potential!
In 1991 I had just graduated from high school and was truly disillusioned with my studies at The University of Houston. As many high school graduates feel, I just didn’t have a clue what I wanted to be when I grew up. I thought it was a good idea to take some time off to determine what direction I needed to go. Well, my father didn’t share my enthusiasm. So, I headed out to find a full-time job while on my “break.”…
Little did I know that this decision would soon reveal itself through the life and health changes I witnessed and experienced while working as a Chiropractic Assistant.
While working in that role, I wanted to further my studies in natural healing and in 1995 I concluded my studies in massage therapy. I then started a thriving massage practice in Austin, Texas and worked closely with area chiropractors. However, in 1997, after seeing so many patients regain their life and health through upper cervical chiropractic care, I realized that I needed to do more.
I began my studies at Parker College of Chiropractic in January of 2001. I was truly humbled every day by how miraculous the human body is and how powerful it can be when the nervous system is functioning optimally. I graduated in January 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and Doctorate of Chiropractic.
Since graduation, I married my sweetheart, Ron and have two beautiful children—who are not so little anymore. As a family, we are committed to a wellness lifestyle. We do this through chiropractic care, sourcing real food from local sources and even partner with medical doctors and dentists that practice using a more holistic approach for our other healthcare needs.
My most recent journey has been an academic one. I embarked on a 3-year program, starting in 2016. My training included becoming certified in Orthospinology, the specific upper cervical technique utilized at HealthWorks, and March of 2019, I completed my Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP), a 3-year course with in-depth studies of the upper cervical spine that was awarded through The International Chiropractic Association Upper Cervical Council.
I have also recently been honored with a 3-year Directorship in the ICA Upper Cervical Council, and serving on the Advisory Council on my technique board, Chiropractic Orthospinology and a featured speaker at my annual Orthospinology Symposiums.
What does all that mean? That means that HealthWorks is committed to serving our community with the most up-to-date, training to help support even the most severe of cases, especially those with chronic migraines, vertigo, dizziness and even those that are still suffering from post-concussive headaches and other biomechanical and/or neuro-physiological reflections that may be related to the upper cervical spine.
This brings me to a special invitation:
Conditions like headaches, migraines, dizziness, neck pain, low back pain, are the body’s way of saying something is wrong. If left untreated they can lead to chronic and severe pain.
Our schedule fills up quickly and we only have room on the appointment books for a limited number of new patients each month. Call us today before the symptoms worsen and spots are all taken.

I believe we are capable of living the life of our dreams—to make every day turn into a more extraordinary tomorrow. And what more important tool do you need to live your very own life of purpose than your health? I feel so passionate about helping others gain their health after a pivotal life experience of my own…
Taylor was healthy by all standards I knew, he had no major illnesses and we spent the first year experiencing milestones and growing together. And then things changed. In 1998, Taylor began to experience ear infections, a snotty nose, and “allergies” that just never went away. Month after month, we visited the pediatrician, Taylor’s chubby little baby hands pulling at his ears and his eyes full of tears. Month after month, we were sent home with yet another prescription for antibiotics and no other options.
As a mother who wanted the very best for my baby, I was frustrated and my gut told me there was a better way. We were not solving any problems, and meanwhile, long-term dangers of antibiotic use were starting to come to light in the media. With the then-new technology of Google, I was able to begin researching other options. We stopped milk products and started to use garlic oil ear drops, we ate organic and even started switching to non-toxic cleaners and detergents. It did make some difference, but the ear infections persisted. That’s when I found a research article about chiropractic care and ear infections. This article explained how subluxation – inflammation in the nerve system – can cause ill health, and it’s quite common to find this among children with chronic ear infections.
A short week later, Taylor and I made our first trip to the chiropractor.
She did find that Taylor had nerve inflammation at a critical area of the spine called Atlas/ C1. And, moments later, a miracle happened for our small family – Taylor had his first adjustment. Following that first adjustment, Taylor never had another ear infection, his “allergies” resolved, and I rarely saw another snotty nose.
In the years that followed, I came to know more about subluxation and health – it’s not just about ear infections or children, it affects all age groups and can cause dysfunction in any part of the body. The nerve system controls all of our body’s health and healing, and when the nerves are compromised, ill health follows.
Three years after Taylor’s first adjustment, I was enrolled at Parker College of Chiropractic here in Dallas, Texas.
I want to help your family get and stay well, too…
Because of my own experiences with Taylor, and later my other sons, Josh and Logan, I am extremely passionate about family health and wellness. Our mission statement starts with, “HealthWorks creates a community of health and wellness.” It is my firm belief that our families deserve a level of health that allows them to live a life full of potential and growth.
Enough about me! HealthWorks is about YOU… I would love the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your health journey. Whether you’re experiencing a challenge or looking to join a community that will exponentially increase your health for a lifetime, please give our Plano office a call today!

I believe the most important thing you can actually control in life is your HEALTH. Health is a fairly broad term, right? Emotional health, mental health, physical health, etc. As a chiropractor, I’ve learned that all facets of health have their own unique impact. How they all intertwine and affect us on an individual level is fascinating! But I didn’t always know about HEALTH and this was my journey…
In 2010 I signed up for a program that had college students shadow different physicians, nurses, dentists, etc. at a free clinic. I thought surely I could find what I wanted to do here! I followed several practitioners and was told on multiple occasions to become a dentist. One day I was assigned to the chiropractor at the free clinic. I had no idea what chiropractors ACTUALLY did even though I had previously wanted to be an animal chiropractor. So at 19 years old, I had my first adjustment…
This one seemingly insignificant moment changed my whole life. I felt a massive pressure release in what felt like my brain that I had no idea was there. I was absolutely amazed and couldn’t believe that moving bones or joints could have this kind of effect. I had to know more. So I asked him if he had any job openings… it turned out he did!
I worked in his office for a full year at the front desk before attending chiropractic school myself. The stories I heard from patients were astonishing!
But there was so much more to chiropractic…
In January 2012 I started at Texas Chiropractic College in Houston. As I went through school I learned about actual HEALTH. I realized chiropractic was all-encompassing. We were training to treat people as a whole person and not just their symptoms. This was more in-depth than I ever imagined! The more I learned the more interested I became in treating people instead of animals (not that I won’t treat animals because I absolutely adore animals!).
Since graduating in 2015 I’ve had the privilege of working in North Carolina, St Thomas, Virgin Islands, Austin, Denton, Dallas, Frisco, and now Plano! Each location gave me more and more insight and experience.
I feel extremely blessed to have been given this calling to help others find the true cause and source of their pain or to even just help optimize their systems! Chiropractic adjustments assist the body in becoming more efficient at handling all our daily stressors. Do you wish your body would be more efficient or optimize the stress you deal with on a daily basis? Or maybe you’re looking to increase your effectiveness in the gym, be more focused, have more energy, sleep better, or just feel better! Come to HealthWorks! I am so excited to be joining this team of great practitioners!
Let us help you get down to the real reasons you’re hurting or not feeling well or just not feeling yourself. We’re here to help!
