If you have back pain, neck pain, or pain in your limbs or joints, you may benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic 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.

Learn About Dry Needling

Dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal problems such as neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain/snapping hip syndrome, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis or low-back pain and much more. Dry needling is a therapy in which acupuncture needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points found in muscles and in the soft tissue surrounding tendons to stimulate a healing response. Dry needling is powerfully effective at decreasing muscle tension, improving range of motion and relieving pain. By adding electrical stimulation, current transferred through the dry needle can help accelerate the process.
