Chiropractic Care

If you have back pain, neck pain, or pain in your limbs or joints, you may benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropratic care is a natural approach to health care that helps restore normal function to the spine and other joints. Chiropractors use hands-on therapies to relieve chronic pain from older injuries or acute pain from new injuries.

At the University of Missouri Health Care’s Missouri Orthopaedic Institute (MOI), our chiropractors offer non-surgical treatment options for a wide variety of conditions. Chiropractic doctors perform manipulations of joints of the spine and extremities, use soft tissue therapies, and prescribe corrective exercises to heal injuries and alleviate pain.

Our chiropractors also work with MOI orthopaedic physicians to determine the best treatment option for each patient.
