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.
At their newly opened location, staff at St. Louis Natural Treatment Center seek out and destroy the underlying causes of health problems, using a battery of solutions such as chiropractic adjustments, massages, and acupuncture sessions. The center's staff devise a treatment plan to alleviate patients' symptoms but emphasize that patients always can customize their care to suit their own health goals.
