Innovative Pain Relief…

Dr. Ladd Carlston combines the best of physical therapy, massage and chiropractic. After years of searching, he has combined unique treatments that bring relief when others have failed.

Many patients he sees have been to other practitioners without results. If you have tried muscle relaxers, physical therapy, or even other chiropractors, his technique may be just what you need for relief.


Dr. Carlston’s Story

Prior to getting his Doctoral degree as a Chiropractor, Dr. Carlston was disappointed seeing so many people needlessly stuck in pain.

​Whether it was someone going to PT for months without success, or someone going through a series of cortisone shots without relief.

He spent years and went to great lengths to find the answer.

He traveled throughout China learning from Chinese Healers. He studied anatomy, physiology and biochemistry while getting his doctorate in Chiropractic. He took classes from doctors all over the country and compared treatment approaches with other colleagues.

Finally, it came together. Patients who had been everywhere else without relief began having breakthrough results. People who had been to other chiropractors or spent tens of thousands on medical treatments over many many years were getting their life back.

​If you have neck, hip, back or neck pain there are innovative solutions waiting for you. Click here to schedule your treatment instantly.

The technique works when other things have failed because it is a very unique combination of specific massage, physical therapy, and chiropractic techniques.

During your first visit, specific muscles are tested to determine what is causing your pain.

Usually, the pain that you’re feeling is coming from muscles that are screaming for help because they’re compensating for muscles elsewhere in your body that aren’t working properly.

After a thorough exam of your pain and if Dr. Carlston thinks he can help you, he will apply a combination of treatments to restore proper function and balance to muscles and tissue which often leads to instant pain relief.

If you’ve tried other things to get rid of your pain without success, you’re in the right place.

“Pain that’s not going away is a result of a muscle that’s overworking and in trouble. It takes some detective work to determine why and expertise to get the body on track again.”

I am in shock and awe….. after dealing with chronic hip, shoulder & neck pain for a year, Dr. Ladd was able to find the problem and solution immediately. I felt so much better after the first visit and now I see a light at the end of the tunnel!

Couldn’t be more satisfied, Dr. Carston is just FANTASTIC!! Having been to several well known Spine, Hip and Knee Specialists in the past 2 years I the Overland Park and Leawood area, and not having had any reasonable diagnostics and treatment for my problem, to have found Dr. Carlston has been a blessing. I definitely would recommend him eyes closed!
