Dr. Myles McKinsey is off to a fresh start now that he relocated his chiropractic office to downtown Union.

McKinsey has operated his business for 13 years. It had been on South Oak Street at Garrick Place where Dr. Jones had practiced.

The new office is at 212 S. Church St. People may call the office at 636-583-2202.

“It almost feels like a new business after the move,” said McKinsey.

He offers adjustments and therapy, as well as hard to get herbal supplements.

McKinsey describes his philosophy as “sort of old fashioned.”

The Logan College of Chiropractic graduate said he is accepting new patients of all ages.

“There are a lot of people who think they need surgery, but they might not need it at all,” said McKinsey.

He added that in some cases surgery is needed, but it could be delayed with chiropractic work.

“We try to make it so the body will do what it wants to do,” said McKinsey. It wants to heal itself.”

Two members of McKinsey’s staff retired prior to the move, Marilyn Jones and Janet Fishback. Now he is assisted by Marketta Strange.

In the new office there are two patient rooms and a therapy room. The building is about 950 square feet and is where the former Changez Salon was located.

The office is open Mondays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is open Tuesday mornings and closed Thursdays.
