You can be assured – we have a commitment to excellence when it comes to the level of care we provide

 
 

Chiropractic Manipulation

We help our patients ease their pain through gentle chiropractic manipulation to encourage motion in the joints of the spine that can contribute to your painful condition.

DOT Physicals

Dr. Feldmann is listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners for performing DOT physicals. The office is also certified in urine collection through the Department of Transportation for new hire and random drug screens. 

Acupuncture

Both Dr. Gerstein and Dr. Feldmann are both board certified and licensed to practice acupuncture in the state of Missouri! Acupuncture treatments consist of very fine needles being inserted into the skin to trigger a healing response in corresponding areas on the body.

 

Pre-Employment Physical

Pre-employment physicals are administered by either Dr. Gerstein or Dr. Feldmann. There are two options  of physicals: a general exam and a comprehensive exam. Call the office for more details!

Drug/Alcohol Screen

The office offers a 10 panel drug screen that looks for the presence of amphetamines/methamphetamines, cannabinoids (marijuana),  cocaine, and 7 other commonly abused drugs. There is also an alcohol screen option available.

Smoking Cessation

We use electro-acupuncture, which is a needleless, painless technique, to help crush those cravings! Included in the sessions is advice and other techniques to help you quit!

 

Cold Laser

Cold laser is cutting edge technology in pain relief. The laser pentrates deep into the tissues and energizes the cells that are responsible for tissue healing and decreasing inflammation. Even though we are working with lasers, the procedure is completely painless!

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation is used for pain relief, muscle relaxation, and decreasing edema in different areas of the body.

Therapeautic Ultrasound

Ultrasound is another pain relieving instrument that uses ultrasound waves to pentrate the target tissues to relax the muscles,  heal connective tissues (muscles and ligaments), and assist in pain relief.

 
 

What is Chiropractic?

Benefits of Chiropractic

 

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of chiropractic—often referred to as DCs, chiropractors or chiropractic physicians—practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. In addition to their expertise in spinal manipulation, doctors of chiropractic have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

Doctors of chiropractic care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches with their highly skilled manipulations, or chiropractic adjustments. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our body structure affects our overall function. DCs also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
