Dr. Alicia Castello
Dr. Castello is very honored to have been voted "Best of the Best" Chiropractor in Grapevine and Colleyville in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013! Having graduated from Dallas’ Parker Chiropractic College in 1997, she completed a brief associateship, and then joined with Dr. Pamela Eckmann in opening La Plaza Family Chiropractic in December 1999.

Dr. Castello utilizes various chiropractic adjusting techniques according to the needs of her patients. Specifically, techniques include the traditional Diversified method, Activator, SOT and the Thompson drop table technique. She is also proficient in Myofascial Release, a soft tissue technique to improve muscle pain and restrictions. One-on-one Exercise Therapy with Dr. Castello is also offered as a regular part of the treatment program, providing postural and core muscle strengthening for the back, neck, shoulder, and other regions.
Dr. Castello’s first exposure to chiropractic health care came in 1990, following an automobile accident that left her with chronic headaches and neck pain. After the traditional medical approach provided no relief, she sought out chiropractic treatment. Pleased with the results and the natural approach to healthcare, she sought out a career in chiropractic. Dr. Castello and her husband of 18 years have 2 young boys and are involved in their local church.
