Our Approach to Wellness

At Townsend Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our signature program is called “The Six Steps To Wellness.”  This unique health approach centers on removing any interferences to health.  Those interferences are:

  3. Rebuild nutrition
  4. Reprogram the body for allergy/sensitivities
  5. Re-evaluate emotional patterns and remove limiting belief systems
  6. Remove heavy metals and other toxins

Whether you're suffering from a recent injury or chronic pain, we can help restore your body to health and improve your quality of life.

Spinal Adjustment

We provide spinal adjustment for the people of St. Robert and Waynesville, MO. Our natural spinal manipulation techniques help realign the vertebrae of the spine and restore the body to good health. Spinal manipulation helps relieve pain in the joints and muscles of the back while also improving communication between the brain and the rest of the body. In this way, spinal adjustment can improve the overall health of the patient. At Townsend Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our number one concern is your safety!  We have treated patients as young as 4 weeks and as old as 96 years.  Regardless of your age or condition, we have procedures to safely and effectively meet your needs.  Some of techniques, such as Pain Neutralization Technique (PNT) requires nothing more than a soft touch to reduce or eliminate pain.  We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our St. Robert and Waynesville office.  

Hydro-Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps improve the blood flow in the muscles and can speed the healing process in injured parts of the body. Massage therapy can also be used to reduce patient anxiety, which can help our patients sleep better and stay healthier.

Nutrition Counseling

Eating a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fats can ensure that you have enough energy to exercise and can also help you ward off illnesses and diseases. Our nutrition counseling services are tailored to the individual to help each person get the right kind of food for their needs.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I took my youngest son to see Dr. Townsend because he suffered so bad from seasonal allergies that he could not go outside to play without swelling up so badly he couldn't open his eyes. He treated him and has been able to enjoy the outdoors for over 9 years now. I will admit that I was a sceptic in the beginning but am so thankful for his treatment.

    I have to travel a lot and Doctor Townsend always makes time for me with or without an appointment. He genuinely cares about his patients and my body feels great after any session I have. A++
