Our Doctors

Dr. Mike Crone

Dr. Mike Crone

A native of southern Louisiana, Dr. Crone has always held true to his values of teamwork, health and well-being. In the days following hurricane Katrina, he volunteered in shelters at the university he would later attend. As a young athlete, he was inspired and mentored by local chiropractor Dr. Glenn Manceaux, who treated the players on the sidelines during high school games.

During his pre-medicine studies at Nicholls State University, Dr. Crone was among the top students in the Honors program, ultimately earning the opportunity to travel with faculty to Costa Rica for biology research. In order to give back to his community and work toward his goal of chiropractic healing, he also volunteered as a coach for his high school football team and the local recreational soccer team.

Dr. Crone believes that patient education is the first and most important step to wellness, and he enjoys empowering his patients and their families to take their health into their own hands. In his free time, he enjoys working out, trying new local craft brews and spending quality time with his wife Natalie and their two dogs.

Dr. Walter Cook

Dr. Walter Cook

A Houston area native and devoted father, Doctor Walter Cook D.C. is a proud Texan and feels privileged to serve as your chiropractor of choice. Doctor Cook was introduced to chiropractic by a fellow church member in a quite casual way, as this soon to be chiropractic peer felt Walter had all the attributes necessary to help those in need of chiropractic care.

After touring several chiropractic offices and seeing the holistic, non-invasive methods in leveraging the body’s natural abilities to heal, recover, and remain optimally functional, Doctor Cook shared the belief of his friend and chose to pursue a career in chiropractic. He then went on to attain his required sciences degree and eventually graduate from Texas Chiropractic College in December of 1986.

His successes and abilities caught special attention during this time as he was selected to partake in additional training and education through the motion palpation institute where he acquired more advanced techniques in spinal and extremity manipulation in order to be proficient in his chosen profession. Call and schedule an appointment to see Doctor Cook at either the Woodlake Square or Memorial at Kirkwood clinic today.

The Joint …the chiropractic place
5 / 5 stars
I sought out chiropractic care because I had a lower back injury. Chiropractic has helped me recovery from my injury and helped improve my overall posture. This was my first treatment option because I did my research and knew that this would be effective.
My pain level was initially 7/10, and after treatment I am now feeling pain-free. I would recommend chiropractic to anyone, it is a must. Here, they do a good job of informing us about all the advantages of chiropractic. The people here are extremely caring and do a great job on informing me on what and why they do certain movements, taking the fear out of it. What has pleased me most about chiropractic is the effect it has had on my body, I feel great.
