  • Dr. Kari takes the time to listen to her patients and gets to the root of the problem. She explains chiropractic so it is very easy to understand. She cares about each and every need and is truly passionate about what she does! I highly recommend Dr. Kari!

    -Jenny P.
  • I’m amazed at how much better I am after just one visit I was sceptical that anything could be done other than surgery. I’m beginning to wonder if God gave Dr Kari some kind of healing power.

    -Terry G.
  • I have seen Dr. Kari for a variety of different reasons, including sciatic pain preventing me from exercising, shoulder pain, swelling in my knees and acupuncture to decrease wrinkles and puffiness under my eyes. With Dr. Kari’s care, I am now able to move without any pain. I highly recommend Dr. Kari!

  • My back was in bad shape! I had tried many other options and methods to help with the pain, but they just weren’t working. Fortunately, I tried chiropractic care with Dr. Kari and she was able to get my back corrected and in proper alignment. I’m now off of everything including all meds used to help the pain! Thank you!

  • Dr. Kari is awesome! I really thought I needed a hip replacement until Dr. Kari worked on my hip. She has me walking without a limp and I am free of the excruciating pain I was having for years. Dr. Kari is the best and she really cares and wants to see her patients well. Give her a try, I promise you will not be sorry you did.

The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness and soothing design of the office and the thoroughness of the providers is the best I’ve ever experienced (and I’ve been to many chiro’s according to work location due to time restraints) from St.Louis to Springfield. I love that the staff can get me in, even for new patient appt, in such a prompt way AND that of the initial and subsequent visits, I’ve never sat in the waiting room area. Always seen right away, it is impressive! I’ve referred many of my coworkers, I hear that they love your crew as much as I do!! -Stacy K.

Outstanding care from the chiropractic physician as well as the assistant and office staff. The office was decorated accordingly, had literature that was relevant to the of discussion. The chiropractor was knowledgeable, professional, and thoroughly examined and treated me. Five stars, two thumbs up, and would definitely recommend to family, friends and colleagues. – Robert G.

Dr. Kari was wonderful. I’m from out of state and have a chiropractor at home but needed an adjustment while visiting family. It was wonderful!! How I wish you all were located in my home state!! Thank you for taking such excellent care of me! -Kimberly W.

I have been to several other chiropractors, and have never had this thorough treatment. Thank you. -Billy H.

Dr. Kari is such a pleasure to be around! I feel assured that her goal is to have me living pain free and back to my everyday life without discomfort. She took adequate time to educate me, answer my questions, and keep me informed. -Natasha K.

My first visit with Dr. Kari surpassed my expectations. I sought the aid of Dr. Kari with hopes she could offer pregnancy-safe migraine relief as well as relief for the standard discomforts that the changes of pregnancy bring about. Dr. Kari truly listened to my concerns, asked questions, and didn’t just shrug me off with the “it’s all part of being pregnant” answer that is less than helpful when you can barely make it through the day with extreme headaches. Dr. Kari took the time to explain how subluxations contribute to discomfort and walked me through the steps of the initial visit and chiropractic care. Dr. Kari also provided me additional information on the Webster technique and how it helps during pregnancy. (What’s that you say? The Webster Technique deals specifically with the way pregnancy changes the body and helps properly align the pelvis and sacrum to make sure the baby has room to maneuver and ideally prevent/minimize lower back/round ligament pain – a win-win in my book). The fact that Dr. Kari is certified in the Webster Technique was one of the reasons I chose to seek her help and I am very glad I did. Dr. Kari made sure I was aligned properly before the end of our visit which offered almost immediate relief for my headache. I slept much better that night and woke up the next day without a headache for the first time in three weeks. I am looking forward to seeing Dr. Kari again soon as we work together to make this pregnancy much less painful than it has been so far! – umm I mean pregnancy is so wonderful… cough cough. -Amanda M.

I have been seeing Dr. Kari for the past 3 months. My experience with her has been wonderful. She is very carrying and a true professional at her practice. I have had 3 separate injuries and she was able to have me functioning again properly, within a short period of time. People were amazed at the time of my recovery. Without Dr. Kari, I would not have been able to be back on the floor officiating basketball. I am so happy I started seeing her for all my chiropractic needs. -Todd B.

The pain in my neck made driving the car very difficult. Each time I looked to the left or right I felt a pain in my neck. After visiting Dr. Kari, she immediately understood and started treating me. After just a few treatments I was able to turn my head both directions without discomfort. Walking from the car to the grocery store was also very painful. Once I could get a cart and lean on it, I could shop. After several treatments I can now walk and shop comfortably without the cart. I recommend Dr. Kari Cerentano to everyone, especially anyone experiencing body pains. Her understanding of what your pain problems are are handled in a very prompt and professional way. Thank you so much, Dr. Kari! -Kay G.

When I first started seeing Dr. Kari I was having difficulties with my back, neck, arm, knee, and more recently, I have been having electrical shocks in my feet. I fell on the ice many years ago and I could not lift my left arm above my shoulder. I asked Dr. Kari if she could help. Within 2 minutes I heard a little pop and I now have full range of motion in my arm again. My back always hurt me and I had undergone surgery for my back pain. I also could not reach my toes while showering and had a hard time trying to pick something up off the floor. She used electrical stimulation, acupuncture, heat application, and spine manipulation and suggested a few exercises for me to do at home. Read more »

I can now touch my toes and bend my hips without pain. The muscles on both sides of my neck also hurt if I yawned or moved too quickly. Dr. Kari used ultrasound with Biofreeze, manipulation, heat, and massage and I no longer have the pain. My knee was also bothering me at night while I slept. Dr. Kari adjusted the knee and after a few short treatments, it no longer causes me any pain. Neuropathy is presently causing sharp pains in my feet. Dr. Kari is presently addressing this problem by using the same techniques, along with laser, and progress is being made. I still come back for a treatment every few weeks to keep myself in alignment. I’m a true believer of chiropractor and in Dr. Kari!

I saw Dr. Kari throughout my pregnancy and I am confident that it was her care and skill that kept me comfortable and pain free throughout the entire pregnancy. She was extremely thorough and made sure I felt comfortable and knew what was happening with the adjustments; including what muscles, ligaments, and joints she was working on. I would highly recommend her to anyone, but especially to expectant mom’s. Speaking from experience – a comfortable pregnancy definitely made for an enjoyable one!! – Paige H.

I had been experiencing back pain from driving and working for several months. The back pain was keeping me from sleeping well, working comfortably, and driving comfortably. With only one visit with Dr. Kari, she alleviated most of my pain and I slept great that night! She took the time to educate me while performing adjustments so I left with a better understanding of how chiropractic treats the root issue of pain, rather than just the symptoms. Thank you Dr. Kari I will be returning soon!! – Aaron M.

Dr. Kari truly cares about her patients well-being and takes the time to understand what their problem really is. She is a very sweet person. She even called me the following day to make sure I got the relief I desired. I am so glad I found Family Health and Wellness Chiropractic. The relief I have received has been amazing. – Renate V.
