Holistic Chiropractic Care
I was a little nervous about the snapping sound and neck being popped about any chiropractic service, so i have never tried it. I received an adjustment from Dr. Dillon, and she made me feel so comfortable and it was actually fun instead of scary! I highly recommend anyone to make an appointment with her fast! I feel like a brand new man.-Brent M., Overland Park
If you are need of a chiropractor, I must suggest that you meet Melinda Dillon. If you don't think you are in need of one - but are feeling off or in pain - I still suggest you meet Melinda. I felt that she gave the very best attention that anyone could offer. I was in pain, so I know that my tolerance level for anything less than excellent was at an all time low. I was not going to take kindly to anything other than a nurturing, knowledgeable, and thorough person helping me. I got just that. I left the space feeling not only better, with some areas that must have been pinching nerves completely released. But I also left with information on how to proceed going forward. She took the time to offer many helpful suggestions that I have put into play. I really did feel that I got individualized attention to detail, and that Dr. Melinda was going to get to the bottom of things. I felt very comfortable even when meeting her for the first time, and will definitely go back if the need arises. I owe Melinda big time for getting me back into mobile shape right before a trip to Portland. If I had not seen her, my guess is that I would have been laid up on our vacation.-Marisa B.,Kansas City, MO
I’ll never go anywhere else. Dr. Dillion has me spoiled.-Deanna W., Kansas City, KS
Dr. Dillon is wonderful. She knows what to look for and could tell which spots were causing my pain. I felt so much better after my treatment with her. Dr. Dillon's office is very welcoming and calming. The best part about this room that caught my eye first was her table! It's purple! I knew this was the right place for me. The colors of this room were beautiful and her hands are truely healing. I'm telling all my friends :-)-Racheal C.,Kansas City, MO
I've been seeing Dr. Dillon for a year now and I couldn't say enough great things about her practice and care. I searched for a nearby Chiropractor after I was involved in an auto accident early last year and found Dr. Dillon. Her knowledge, kindness, patience and overall demeanor is calming...making you feel at ease and comfortable. Dr. Dillon has helped me tremendously over the past year with my back and hip issues as well as my overall health and I will continue to use her practice in the future. Whitney W., Kansas City<MO
I was skeptical about acupuncture, but Dr. Dillon made me feel comfortable even with the needles in my face. The relief from my allergies was immediate and lasted for days and continues to improve. I could even smell something not so pleasant in my car that I had no idea had been there before the treatment. Haha, but seriously, she is very knowledgeable and comforting.-Kenna S.,Kansas City,KS
Well my back hurt so I went to see Dr. Dillon. I left the office after a session feeling great relief. Dr. Dillon was courteous and kind. Her techniques did the trick. Dr. Dillon is very gentle and sweet in demeanor and knows her stuff. I recommend her services to friends and people who need chiropractic services all the time. Wouldn't go anywhere else. She has also adjusted my significant other and children with great results. Also her clinic is clean and a pleasant environment that helps you relax!-Patrick S., Kansas City, MO
Before I met Dr. Dillon, I thought all chiropractic was the same- all business, all money, no personal attention. I decided to stop in, she was able to talk to me, assess my situation, and adjust me all that day! I will never go to another chiropractor as long as I'm in the KC area. Dr. Dillon listens to your concerns, is flexible with care, and takes her job seriously while still being super relaxed. In other words... DR. DILLON IS AMAZING. I have and will recommend her to everyone I know.-Jessica S.,Kansas City,MO

Consultation & Exam
You need a doctor who will listen.
During the consultation session, the doctor will ask questions related to your complaint to assess the issues and what exams need to be performed. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advise.
There are several different types of adjusting techniques that can be used to treat many different issues. She is well diverse in Activator, Thompson, Diversified, Sacral Occipital Therapy, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Soft Tissue Manipulation, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. After your exam the doctor will describe your treatment options and which techniques would work best for you.
Traditional Chinese medicine uses acupuncture to treat a variety of issues. Qi flows through meridians in the body and sometimes will get blocked at different acupuncture points. During your acupuncture session these points will be opened to allow this energy to flow once again.
During your visit you may have the option of adding additional relaxation treatments to your plan such as Chinese cupping, infrared sauna, hot stones, electrical transdermal nerve stimulation and roller table sessions. There are also a number of massage therapist and yoga classes available throughout the day.
