Many people automatically assume that chiropractic care only serves to treat back or neck injuries. But here at McIntyre Chiropractic & Acupuncture Centre, back and neck complaints are only one area of our range of care. Our Richmond Heights chiropractor in St. Louis, Dr. Brian McIntyre, uses spinal adjustment and other conservative care techniques to address an enormous range of health issues, from acute injuries to chronic ailments. We also serve Webster Groves, Creve Coeur, Ladue, University City, Brentwood, Maplewood, Clayton & Surrounding Areas!
Some of the conditions we treat include:
Back pain – Spinal misalignment commonly causes chronic back pain as your joints, vertebral discs and muscles experience undue stress. Chiropractic adjustment can undo these misalignments, while massage and other therapies address soft tissue pain.
Neck pain – The cervical spine in the neck is vulnerable to a variety of stresses, strains and injuries. Treatment may include cervical adjustments, acupuncture to relieve pain, corrective exercise and lifestyle changes.
Extremity pain – Many cases of extremity pain are actually referred pain from a spinal misalignment or injury, as in the leg pain typical of sciatica. Adjusting the spine to relieve pinched nerve roots can stop this kind of pain at the source,
Auto accident injury – An auto accident injury can produce numerous acute problems, from whiplash and strained back muscles to sciatica and shoulder damage. We recommend an immediate spinal evaluation following an accident so we can locate and treat your injuries as soon as possible.
Chronic pain – Many currently-incurable conditions can cause chronic pain, from osteoarthritis to fibromyalgia. Our personalized pain management plans employ multiple healing techniques to help you control your pain without pharmaceuticals.
Headaches and migraines – Massage therapy and cervical spinal adjustments can help relieve the muscle tension and spasms that cause typical headaches. We can even help you fight migraines by normalizing your nerve function, providing nutritional advice and helping you avoid common triggers.
