Meet Dr. Dusty
Dr. Dustan Mattingly discovered chiropractic after it helped him recover from an injury he suffered while in the military. He found that chiropractic treatment eliminated his neck pain and stiffness, sparing him the ill effects of painkillers and surgery. He wanted to bring this same effective healing technology to others in his community who suffered from back pain, neck pain and other ailments that could be overcome through chiropractic care.
Expert in Natural Pain Relief
To obtain his Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Dr. Dusty studied at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. This college was the very first chiropractic college and is still the largest and most highly regarded. While nearly one-third of all chiropractors have graduated from this school, Dr. Dusty is one of the very few practicing in the St. Louis area.
After graduation, the doctor opened his first practice in Chillicothe, Illinois, near where he grew up, so he could bring the beneficial effects of chiropractic to his family, friends, and neighbors. Several years later, he relocated his family to St. Louis, Missouri, and continued to advance his skills as a natural healthcare practitioner.
Highly Trained in Acupuncture and Nutrition
Dr. Dusty studied additional chiropractic techniques, including special methods of treating sports and accident injuries. He also trained in a unique system of detecting nutritional deficiencies and determining the exact nutrients needed to relieve acute illnesses, chronic conditions and injuries.
He added acupuncture to his toolkit when he found that some patients needed a more complete approach to healing. His acupuncture training included auricular therapy, the use of acupuncture points in the ear to help patients stop smoking and heal headaches, allergies, pain, and many other conditions. This procedure has been recognized by both the World Health Organization and the Food and Drug Administration.
Dr. Dusty also mastered the art of Pressure Point Therapy to improve patients’ response to treatment. With this specialized technique, he found he could provide increased relief from pain and muscle dysfunction and so help a patient recover more quickly from the effects of stress or injuries.
Dr. Dusty’s Approach to Healing
Dr. Dusty listens carefully to a patient’s information about their health and completes a detailed examination to gather more information. His approach is to evaluate each patient from a holistic viewpoint, considering their lifestyle and diet as well as chiropractic care, nutrition, Pressure Point Therapy and other tools to resolve their physical issues.
He then prepares a treatment plan individualized for this patient, based on his or her situation exactly, to guide them all the way to full, vigorous recovery. This personalized system of treatment has enabled Dr. Dusty to achieve such excellent results that patients come from all over Missouri to see him, with some even flying in from out of state.

What Our Patients Are Saying
The Pain Was Totally Gone After the Adjustment
“Dr. Mattingly is the best chiropractor I have ever been to in my life. I have a history of lower back pain, neck pain and a general weakness of the muscles in my back.
“The other day, I was sleeping in a chair for half an hour. When I tried to get up, I couldn’t. The pain in my lower back was electrifying. I nearly collapsed in pain. The next day, as soon as I could get there, Dr. Mattingly gave me the best adjustment ever. I knew beforehand he could fix it. And he did. The pain was totally gone after the adjustment.
“I ‘bow down’ to you, Dr. Mattingly, because you deserve it, and because I can!”
“I woke up one night at 2 a.m. in severe pain; I could barely walk. I went to Dr. Mattingly and he worked on me and I got instant relief. I was able to walk normally by the end of the day. I now go to him weekly and have had excellent results. He has me on nutritional supplements that have helped me greatly. He has enhanced my quality of life in so many ways. I truly enjoy the service and results I have and will obtain. I’ve had chiropractic care before Dr. Mattingly is the best. Thanks Dr. Mattingly and staff!”
“For over 10 years I have lived with low back pain. I was in a car accident where my leg was broken. After getting out of the cast and when I was up and about, I went back to work doing hardwood floors and wood trim. I was bent over and on my knees a lot and the pain was about all I could bear at best. Some days I would sit stretching my leg trying to relieve some of the pain.”
“Luckily I came into Dr. Mattingly’s office, and in a few short weeks he has rid me of most of my pain. His knowledge and ability to get fast results allow me to be more productive at work and more alive when I get home to my kids. I get to roll around with them now rather than being worried about throwing out my back or having to withstand the pain of my back in order to enjoy their excitement.”
