The Most Common Conditions We Treat

back pain

Chiropractic care for back pain and lower back pain

Back injuries take various forms, and we’re well-versed in finding solutions for almost all of them. We’ve helped those who suffer from chronic and aggressive pain in the back to mild discomfort. The spine is an integral part of our bodies and movement. When it’s not fully functioning, the body is thrown off balance and can’t support us as it’s meant to. 


Even the smallest injury can lead to serious issues. We can find the cause of your problem and remedy it through safe, efficient care using adjustments, exercises, therapies, and more.

Neck Pain

Chiropractic care for neck pain

The neck is home to the seven vertebrae of the cervical spine, a critical part of our body that allows us to turn our heads from side to side and up and down and forward and backward. We use it almost constantly, and when it’s out of alignment range of motion suffers, and pain can be a result. 

Using devices and computer screens have contributed to neck problems; we’ve seen several stiff, sore, and otherwise stressed neck muscles. Our care will help with the problem, and we’ll give you solutions that provide better posture and balance. 

desk work pains

Chiropractic care for office-workers and remote-workers

With new working environments come new aches and pains. For many of us, our workstations have gone from ergonomic chairs and monitors displayed properly at eye-level to a sofa for a chair and a pillow to put our laptop on. 

It’s not ideal, and that puts a lot of pressure on the neck and back muscles, joints, and ligaments. Our team can get you fixed up and provide ergonomic and postural techniques and solutions. We’ll also give you exercises and stretches to do at home that contribute to strength and support.


Chiropractic care for sciatica 

The sciatic nerve is the largest in the body, running from your lower back down each leg to your ankles. Encompassing such a generous portion of the body means there’s a lot of room for discomfort to rear its head. Sciatica ranges in severity but getting chiropractic care for it as soon as possible is a responsible way to ensure your body is put out of harm’s way and you can start healing safely. 

Chiropractic care for athletes

Injuries Testimonials 

We love to help patients find empowerment and function after an injury. Take a look at what our patients have to say.

This review is long overdue. Dr. Furman is a miracle worker! As a 26-year-old working in an office, my back began to hurt more and more each day. Considering myself to be someone who is pretty active outside of the office, the pain became very aggravating. From the very 1st visit with Dr. Furman, my life has changed for the better. He not only helped relieve the pain almost immediately but also began working with me on exercises/stretches I could do on my own to keep the issues from reoccurring. His goal from the beginning is to make sure he doesn’t have to see you again in the future, and does everything he can to make sure you receive quality care. Thank you Dr. Furman for everything!

Corey Borkowski // Richmond Heights, MO

I had surgery in 2013 on a herniated disc. I had the same injury last year and thought that a surgery was yet again inevitable. Someone told me about Dr. Furman so I decided to give it a try. Let’s just say I wish I heard of him in 2013. He kept me off the surgery table and my back and neck are feeling better than ever. I see him once or twice per month and he gives me new exercises to strengthen my core and keep my spine safe. He gets to the root of the problem, doesn’t just give temporary fixes. He’s at the top of the chiropractor game in St. Louis. I wouldn’t see anyone else. Thank you Dr. Furman, from me and my family.

Michael Cernuto // St. Louis, MO

I hurt my back over a year ago and struggled to find a doctor who was able to address my pain. I struggled to sit up and stand. And getting in and out of a car and bed was very hard. Many of the doctors I went to wanted to just prescribe medicine and other temporary measures. Nothing that addressed the root issue.

I was so happy to find Lova Health and Lev. Lev not only looks at the injury but the surrounding muscles/bones/nerves. His methods brought me both instant relief and have provided me long-term relief. He is always taking new classes and is on top of new procedures to try. All with the goal of making sure his patients remain healthy.

I went from not being able to squat/deadlift/being unable to stand or sit for long periods of time to now where I can deadlift and squat with ease and recently took a road trip where I had to drive for 15+ hours. I would not have been able to do this before Lev.

I definitely recommend checking him and his practice out! Whether you have an injury or are just looking for a place to help maintain!
