Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time. Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them – that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced. For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.

When I first started going to Dr. Pinkston about five months ago I had pain in my lower back and it was stiff. I also had pain in my upper back and it was radiating into my left shoulder, and the pain was constant. I was taking 9 to 12 Advil every day and I still had pain. I decided to try Dr. Pinkston and decided that I would commit to it for 3 months as I did not believe my back could be healed overnight. In the begining I was going several times a week, but within a couple weeks the pain in my shoulder was gone. In another week or two the pain in my lower back was gone. After about two months I no longer had pain in my back and was only occasionally taking a couple Advil a day, mostly for pain in my feet which comes from walking four or five hours a day. I have also lost 20 pounds since starting with Dr. Pinkston. I feel much better than when I started. My family and coworkers have also noticed I have lost weight and look better. I would highly recommend Dr. Pinkston to anyone who is having pain.
Former skeptic to total advocate. I've had neck issues and carpel tunnel for YEARS and have been to both an orthopaedic surgeon and Physical Therapy. After just 4 weeks I finally have relief and for the first time in years and my hands didn't go numb at night. Dr. Pinkston genuinely cares about his patients and their overall health and well being. He is unlike any other healthcare professional I've ever been to and would recommend anyone to go to him ! He has a unique practice where he will also work with you with massage , stretching and strength building exercises. My only regret is not starting this program sooner!
After running a half marathon in April, my foot was so injured from training that I was unable to run a mile. I saw Dr. Pinkston to help fix my foot and to try the Shape Reclaimed weight loss program to lose a few pounds. With his help and guidance, I lost over 40 pounds and have a very healthy foot! With the excess weight gone and a healthy foot, I am shattering my personal records with every run. The weight loss has transformed my life and made me healthy from the inside out.
Dr. Pinkston is amazing!!! He is friendly and professional and cares deeply for each of his patients.
Thank you Dr. Pinkston for transforming me!!!
Dr. Pinkston might be the best doctor I've EVER had! I live in Chicago and make weekly trips to St. Louis to visit him 3-4x a week for my adjustments! After 12 weeks, I have full range of my neck and experience barely any pain after being diagnosed with a pinched nerve.
The way I came across Dr. Pinkston was nothing short of FATE! I’ve had severe back pain for about 4 years, but my mother suffers from arthritis of the lower back since she was 16 and always said back arthritis was hereditary in our family. So, I learned to live with the pain assuming I was plagued for life. However, in September the pain worsened to the point I could barely sleep for two hours total a night! Walking, sleeping, sitting, lying down, working out; essentially existing became painful as hell! I was in STL and visited the Taste of STL in Chesterfield while in excruciating pain and Dr. Pinkston’s table was the first table I encountered. This was the FATEFUL moment. He did a quick scan, diagnosed me with chronic back/neck pain right there on the spot and told me to make an appointment as soon as possible. He was shocked I hadn’t even visited a doctor for my pain since my scans were off the chart! That was all I needed to convince me I need a Chiropractor! After X-rays and weekly adjustments for 3 months, I’m sleeping like a cat again, simply existing isn’t physically painful anymore, and I am more alert, less stressed, and energetic.
My Chicago friends tell me to get a chiropractor in Chicago, but sometimes you just know when you have a good thing! For a doctor, I couldn’t ask for much more! Dr. Pinkston listened to all my concerns and questions and has helpful answers and remedies for everything. On top of all of this he is EXTREMELY nice and personable and so is Adriana, the office assistant! I highly recommend him! You won’t be disappointed!
Came across this business at Working Women's Show, have knee and neck pain, only issue is my work schedule and I live 30 miles away, came in for 2 visits, X-rays, consultation. Everyone was very nice, one of the X-rays didn't turn out well to see, what happened?, a complete refund, happiness guarantee,,, AWESOME, Not many businesses these days will do that, would recommend this business to everyone!
Dr. Jon Pinkston was able to help me out with my shoulder issues by doing adjustments and physical therapy. He sincerely cares and wants to help people with their pains. I appreciate the fact that when it comes down to it, his true goal seems to be helping people maintain a healthy lifestyle.
