Pressure Point Therapy, St. Louis, MO
Have you ever noticed tight, sore spots in your shoulders? Or sore spots in your neck or back or below your collarbone?
Those are “pressure points”—painful knots of energy located on your body’s nerve pathways. They prevent the normal flow of energy along your nerves and that means problems for you. Pressure Point Therapy, also known as trigger point therapy, relieves these problems, including:
Leg and knee pain
Lower back pain
Headaches and migraines
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
How Pressure Point Therapy Works
When nerve flows are blocked, function at the far end of the nerve is disrupted. But when pressure points are released, nerves can begin to function more normally. Pressure Point Therapy is all about opening up nerve pathways by finding and releasing these tight, blocked pressure points to relieve pain.
The purpose of this therapy is to improve your well-being and relieve your pain. And it delivers.

Pressure Point Therapy with Chiropractic Care for Faster Results
Pressure Point Therapy is a perfect companion to your chiropractic care from Dr. Dusty. Your chiropractic adjustments will shift the vertebrae in your spine so they are in better alignment. But your muscles may need to adjust to these new positions. By combining Pressure Point Therapy with chiropractic adjustments, your muscles will adjust more quickly. Any nerves that were irritated by those misaligned vertebrae can finally relax, almost as if they are breathing a sigh of relief.
What is Pressure Point Therapy Treatment Like?
Dr. Dusty looks for certain pressure points associated with symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, tightness in the lungs or back pain. The right pressure points are found and gentle pressure is applied as you breathe steadily and deeply. Very soon, this hard knot will melt away. As it does, nerve flow increases in this area. This is repeated in other areas until you experience improved well-being.

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.”
