Happy New Year and Practice Update

This month marks one year since I moved my office into my home in Olivette, MO. I continue to see patients on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. You may schedule online at handsonhealthstl.com. Click the Book Appointment button.

 

I see one patient per hour and combine deep therapeutic massage, manipulation, acupuncture, physical agents, and rehabilitation exercises as needed to manage your pain syndromes and injuries.

 

The benefits include:

 

1. My patient receives my undivided attention. I can often free you from your pain syndrome easily in a few visits. I have time to add in exercises and lessons in body mechanics.

2. No wait time!

3. Very easy parking in my driveway

4. The office is lovely and comfortable.

 

The physical problems I can help you with include:

  • Back and neck pain from arthritis, myofascial damage, pinched nerves, and degenerative or ruptured discs
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Hip pain from arthritis or bursitits
  • Heel and Ankle pain from plantar fascitis and achilles tendinitis
  • Elbow and wrist pain from carpel tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow

 

Fee Schedule

Chiropractic Care including therapeutic massage and physical therapies (heat, stim, ultrasound)     $110

Acupuncture/Dry needling with therapeutic massage       $130

New Patient Exam and Consultation       $255

Existing Patient with a new problem assessment    $40-80

 

Payment is requested at the time of service and a receipt is sent to you with the coding you will need to submit to your insurance carrier. I accept most major credit cards.

Here is one review from Maura Kennedy, an artist and musician from New York City:

 

“I don’t usually endorse products, but I have to let my road warrior friends know about this back support which has provided great relief from long hours on the road. I discovered Dr. Linda Wheatland Smith just when I needed her most! As a traveling musician who has been on the road for over 25 years, I really feel the effects of all the long hours of driving from gig to gig on my back. I’ve tried different kinds of pillows and lower back supports in the car to varying results. No matter what I try, I always feel stiff when getting up out of the car after sitting still for long stretches. But now I know what all those back pillows were missing — FULL back support that extends all the way up to the neck! As soon as I sat down in my car with Dr. Linda’s Back Cushion in place, I could feel the cushion envelope my whole spine with its gentle, natural contours. What an instant feeling of relief! Now, several hundred miles down the road, I know I’ll be able to continue to tour without worrying about worsening back pain and stiffness because my spine is staying in the correct position during all the long drive hours. Thank you, Dr. Linda! Beep beep!”

Hands On Health Winter 2018 Newsletter

My Dear Patients,

 

At the end of this year, I will be moving to a home office. I will have a small cash-based practice that includes acupuncture, deep tissue massage, chiropractic care, and physical agents. A receipt for your services will be available for you to submit to your insurance. I will see patients on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings from 8am-2pm.

 

I realize that many of you will not be able to stay in my practice because of my decision to stop participating with your insurance plans and because of my limited availability. I will miss you. It has been the privilege of my lifetime to care for you and your families. This marks my 36th year of private practice. I plan to write and teach about what I have learned in the process of caring for your health issues.

 

Dr. Robert Andel of Smart Pain Solutions will be establishing his practice in my current space. Dr. Amanda Peiffer will continue to see her patients and will continue to participate in your insurance plans. Sallie Spence will continue to see her massage clients.

 

We are finalizing the details of this transition. We will keep you updated.

 

All the best,

 

Linda Wheatland Smith, D.C.

Amanda Peiffer, D.C., MSR

Sallie Spence, LMT
