Not everyone responds the same to particular therapies. This is why the doctor offers a diverse set of treatment options. Most commonly associated with chiropractors is the chiropractic adjustment. Also known as spinal manipulation, this can help relieve joint pain and allow for better range of motion.
In addition to the adjustment, this St. Louis chiropractor provides therapies such as myofascial release, stretching and functional rehabilitation. Collectively all of these help with pain management, realigning the spine and providing more balance and symmetry to the body. The rehabilitation is then used to strengthen muscles to keep the body aligned.
Although Dr. O’Guin can treat a variety of muscular skeletal conditions, he specializes in low back pain and neck pain. Much of this has to do with his search throughout the years in managing his own back pain. He suffered injuries with physically demanding jobs, service in the Marine Corps and playing contact sports. Throughout his search, he came to realize that the chiropractic profession would be best suited to place him as a leading back doctor.
His approach is a combination of hands on therapies to provide relief along with self-management options. This includes showing patients how they can take care of pain on their own if they choose to. By learning appropriate stretches and strengthening exercises, back pain resolves faster and is less likely to return.
