Spinal Decompression Therapy in Clayton, MO


In today's society, our posture is not as good as it should be because we are constantly on our phones, not sitting right when using the computer or watching television.

Spinal decompression therapy is a procedure where by the spine a vital component of the skeletal system is stretched and relaxed occasionally in a mild & controlled manner.
