Dr. Kody R. Johnson believes that many illnesses and injuries can be remedied without chemical drugs or surgery. This philosophy arose when he was 18, when Kody first experienced a chiropractic treatment. After that, Kody was passionate about learning how this method of holistic healing can ease pain, boost energy levels, and stave off the common cold. This discovery led him to attend the historic Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, the first chiropractic college in the world, from which he graduated summa cum laude. At Johnson Chiropractic & Holistic Health Center, Dr. Johnson doles out spinal adjustments using a wide variety of techniques as well as acupuncture treatments, nutritional advice, and therapeutic pats on the back.
After graduating from Life University in 1999, Doctor of Chiropractic Brent Berlener began studying advanced chiropractic techniques, such as the Pettibon system. The system uses whole-body vibration and spinal decompression to help the spine look and function like the scary skeleton it is. Nowadays, Dr. Berlener pairs the technique with traditional services, such as adjustments and massage therapy, at Discover Wellness & Rehabilitation.
Specializing in manual treatment and functional rehabilitation of repetitive-use injuries to soft tissue, including: strains/sprains, tendinitis, shin splints, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, patellar tracking disorder, back pain, neck pain/headaches and hip pain.
Laser Lipo & Vein Center's vein specialist and phlebologist, the board-certified Dr. Thomas Wright, has marked nearly every step of his career with an award. As a student at the University of Missouri's School of Medicine, his leadership and academic performance in the top quarter of his class got him elected to the venerable Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. After graduation, his voracious appetite for knowledge earned him a Physician Recognition Award from the American Medical Association, which recognizes doctors who average at least 50 credits of educational activities and swallow one textbook like a vitamin each year. Dr. Wright has also studied tumescent liposuction under the tutelage of its inventor, Dr. Jeffrey Klein. He also contributes original research to the American College of Phlebology, teaches classes at the American Society of Nonsurgical Aesthetics, and invests heavily in his patients. Impressed by his compassion and decade of expertise with cosmetic procedures, they honored him with Patients' Choice Awards in 2010 and 2011.
The center reflects his primary interests in vein disease and liposuction that only requires local anesthesia. Vein therapies are determined by an ultrasound evaluation, which could lead to a noninvasive treatment that heals with radio waves and the sterile affection of a grandmother robot. Lasers round out the practice's aesthetic side, as they can assist in liposuction and provide a gentle alternative to cosmetic injections. In addition to routing hair from the skin's surface, they penetrate below it to rejuvenate aging skin and zap veins.
St. Louis Lipo Laser eschews the space-age aesthetic one might expect from a laser body-sculpting center; if anything, the clinic's unassuming red-brick storefront invokes the charm of a neighborhood medical practice. This same charm pervades the center's treatment rooms, where skilled physicians and technicians welcome their patients with old-fashioned kindness as they call upon noninvasive lipo-laser technology in lieu of traditional liposuction to help combat excess pounds. Lipo-laser treatments can shrink fat cells around the hips, arms, thighs, and other areas without inflicting the incisions that more invasive fat-removal procedures require. After laser sessions coupled with body-vibration treatments, patients may see increased flexibility and other benefits similar to those of traditional exercise, and they can immediately resume such regular activities as walking down stairs and climbing up elevator cables.
