St. Louis Medical Center is a chiropractic and wellness center in its second generation of care. We have been providing pain management treatment and injury rehabilitation for St. Louis patients and those in the surrounding neighborhoods for 37 years. Dr. David Sciortino and his team offer natural healing techniques through chiropractic care such as spinal decompression, cold laser therapy and trigger point therapy for personal injury patients and patients suffering from chronic conditions such as sciatica.

Our team creates solutions to common health problems by identifying the source of pain or injury. Health issues can often be manifestations of underlying problems such as stress, a misaligned spine or improperly healed injuries. St. Louis chiropractor Dr. Sciortino and his team address these problems and creates individualized plans for each patient in order to provide the most effective care to result in lasting wellness.

St. Louis Chiropractor Relieves Back Pain Through a Variety of Treatment Options

At St. Louis Medical Center, Dr. Sciortino offers a number of different treatments. Treatment plans are geared towards the patient’s overall health. Therapeutic options include trigger point therapy, spinal decompression therapy, and cold laser therapy. All three of these focus on musculoskeletal health as the cornerstone of health. Combinations of different techniques and therapies are designed to help alleviate pain, rehabilitate injuries, correct spinal alignment and improve strength and flexibility in patients.

The first visit to the chiropractor will begin with Dr. Sciortino and his team making a complete assessment of the source of your pain and/or injury. He will gently examine your spine and musculoskeletal system for problem areas. Once the areas that need attention are identified, our doctor will use very gentle methods of adjustment to return the spine to its proper alignment. Adjustments are frequently complemented with additional healing therapies depending on the severity of pain and needs of the patient.

Because we know stress can manifest itself in many ways, trigger point therapy is used to help release trigger points in the back and neck that are holding pain and tension. Trigger point therapy is also helpful to improve circulation, ease sore muscles and provide a complement to chiropractic adjustments.

Spinal decompression therapy is used for patients experiencing pain in the neck and the low back. The technique separates the vertebrae to release built-up pressure in the spine. Spinal decompression is a non-invasive therapy often used to treat bulging discs, pinched nerves, sciatica and other painful conditions.

Another advanced technology that Dr. Sciortino may recommend for treatment is cold laser therapy. Cold laser has been used to treat back pain and conditions such as fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome. When using cold laser therapy, the laser produces energy to increase healthy cell growth and promote faster healing of injuries. Dr. Sciortino wants to ensure lasting relief for his patients, so he may also recommend treatments following injury rehabilitation. Recurring visits to the chiropractor are effective for pain management and preventative care.
