Chiropractor, DC Verified
Kirkwood, MO 63122
My ideal client is looking for a solution to a health concern that either has no medical solution, or for which the only known solution is medication or surgery. Many people come to me for allergy symptoms (eczema, congestion, digestive complaints, etc.), digestive issues (bloating, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, SIBO, candida), chronic infections and many other health concerns. The techniques I use are gentle enough for people in almost any condition (I have treated newborns, geriatric patients, and patients with spinal metastasis). I have helped patients avoid an array of unwanted treatments from antibiotics to spinal surgery.

Chiropractic in Kirkwood - is it right for me?
Kirkwood Chiropractors specialize in the interactions between our nerves, muscles and skeleton and their effects on our general health. They diagnose problems and use manual therapy, including joint adjustment and manipulation, to prevent and treat them.

Many people who seek Kirkwood chiropractic care do so for help with back pain, especially lower back pain, neck pain and headache. Spinal adjustment in Kirkwood or chiropractic adjustment is the most common method of treatment--it refers to the manual adjustment by the chiropractor of the three-joint complex at the base of your spine with sufficient force to create a sensation of 'release', increasing the joint's range and reducing pain.

A treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments. Many chiropractors in Kirkwood also incorporate nutritional counseling, exercise or rehabilitation into the treatment plan.
