FAQ

  1. Is Dr. Amy the only NET practitioner in St. Louis?

  2. What does "Gentle" really mean? Will I hear a "pop and crack"?

    By using CPK/Chiropractic Plus Kinesiology we are able to diagnose, monitor the body throughout the healing process, and speed the healing time for the patient without the typical “pop and crack”. Because kinesiology is diagnostic, we are often able to identify problems before symptoms are felt or seen.

    We will address the soft tissue (muscles, ligaments and tendons) surrounding the joint space and then use an Activator tool, a low-force adjusting technique, to align the bone so that the joint will be more apt to stay in place and remain corrected.

    No. We will gladly give you a medical receipt/superbill to turn into your insurance for out of network coverage.
