In 2000, Doctor of Chiropractic William A. Straughn moved his self-named practice to Florissant, the place where he was born and raised and where his grandmother still lives. This move enabled him to serve the people of his hometown who suffer from chronic lower-back and neck pain or who need to regain their footing after an accident or injury. Dr. Straughn and his staff also teach patients how they can improve their diets and how to incorporate healthy habits into their workdays, such as doing jumping jacks in a crowded elevator or sprinting full speed to the restroom.
Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Berman?s abilities have made him somewhat of a celebrity, if his clientele is any indication. In addition to the clients at his private practice?Berman Chiropractic & Wellness?Dr. Berman has performed chiropractic therapies for celebrities including musicians, athletes, and dancers. And despite his precise expertise, his office doesn?t have a clinical feel. A stone wall and relaxed ambiance reminds visitors more of a spa than a doctor?s office.
But Dr. Berman does know a thing or two about clinical settings; he began his medical career working in a hospital, where he observed that patients sustained themselves with long-term medication, too-frequent surgeries, or sugarcoated multivitamins. By contrast, when he began working in a chiropractic office, he recalls that ?people were getting better without the use of drugs or surgery.? Inspired by his initial brush with chiropractic, he now combines holistic health services such as spinal-decompression therapies and weight-loss programs with an eight-person massage team that offers 14 different modalities. Dr. Berman, along with Dr. Craig Connor, are members of Professional Sports Care, a chiropractic sports medicine organization that provides services to PGA tour players and professional golf programs.
Since 2003, Advanced Health & Wellness' resident chiropractor, Dr. Kyle LeBlanc, has unburdened spines of all their aches and pains. During complimentary consultations, the certified doctor discusses each patient's health concerns, and suggests the most effective course of treatment. For patients recovering from auto accidents, for instance, that means chiropractic sessions that help reduce inflammation and increase range of motion.
Dr. Kyle's expertise isn't limited to chiropractic, though?he employs plenty of other soothing modalities, from trigger-point therapy to electric stimulation. In addition to healing pain-stricken patients, Dr. Kyle and his team help clients learn to care for themselves through educational events, such as chiropractic seminars.

The vertebral virtuosos at Mid-America draw from a physical-therapy mindset to remedy sources of spinal discomfort and boost patients’ overall health. During the hydro-table massage ($35 value), water jets volley aqua streams to relieve back muscles of tightness and improve general joint mobility without wetting patients' shirts or temporary tattoos. Back repairees are then free to enlist one of Mid-America's trained professionals to perform an optional digital analysis of their spine, which peeks at patients’ bone buttress for mechanical faults, potential health issues, or missing Jenga pieces.
