Patient Testimonials

I use to be a non-believer when it came to chiropractors. 15 years ago I developed sciatic nerve problems due to degenerative disc disease. I was unable to stand for 5 minutes without extreme pain. After enduring 2 years of never ending pain, I decided to give Dr. Carpentier a try. Well I have been a patient of hers for 13 years now. I've told her several times she made a believer out of me. The staff is wonderful and friendly. A great place and excellent care! --Amy B.

Sylvie is absolutely amazing... she actually helped to repair some crushed disks in my back that I had just been "dealing with" for years! She really knows her stuff! And the staff is great. In and out almost every time, even if they're busy! --Jonathan S.

I love Dr. Monique White! Being away from home as a college student, I didn't have a chiropractor in Columbia. I was super lucky to find Advanced Physical Health. All the staff are super sweet and appointment scheduling is super flexible and easy. Monique is one of the nicest people I have ever met and does an incredible job. She's super knowledgeable and is a great chiro. Monique has helped my back problems so much. I'm so grateful to have such a fantastic chiropractor! --Jasmine R.

Dr. Monique White is so kind and helpful with my adjustments to help with migraines, hip issues and lower back pain. She is caring and listens closely to her patients. I feel my health has improved since I have started treatment with Dr. Monique White! The other Doctors, Nurses and Staff members are caring and helpful as well. I highly recommend this practice. --Sadie T.

I have been using chiropractic care for over 10 years now. It has truly changed my life by helping manage and even eliminate my pain. However, chiropractic care has done even more than just pain management. It has become an invaluable tool for total body wellness. I wish everyone could experience chiropractic care. I have traveled and moved a lot over the years and this continues to be my all time favorite clinic!!! Weather you are new to chiropractic care or a seasoned veteran this is the place for you. The whole team, from the chiropractors to the staff, is wonderful. My primary chiropractor is Dr. Monique White. It has always been a pleasure to come in for my appointments. The level of care and dedication she has for her patients is undeniable. She wants the very best for each and every one of her patients and it shins out of her. --Alyssa R.

I have been a patient of Dr Sylvie Carpentier (Dr C) as needed for 25 years. I have also recently seen Dr Monique White and I love them both. Regular adjustments are a healthy way to remain flexible allowing nutrients to do their thing for the health of your spine and joints. I have two bulging discs (L5 & S1) that with therapy and maintenance have remained manageable making surgery unnecessary. I remained symptom free for several years until last Fall when I had a flare up because of doing leg presses at the gym. I spent the winter going in for therapy and have recently gotten the green light to work out again!! I will do everything I can to avoid surgery because I don't want scar tissue, unnecessary nerve exposure and the pain when chiropractic care has helped me. Since recovery, I only go for maintenance and I have my range of motion back and I am also symptom and pain FREE!! Thank you Dr C and staff for helping me get back to good!! I completely trust Dr C and also consider her my friend! --Kimberly M.

I have been seeing Dr. Carpentier for many years, and I always come away from an adjustment feeling refreshed and renewed. Her patient, kind, gentle, and caring approach has helped me through more than just back problems. --Win G.

I have been seeing Dr. Carpentier (Dr. C) for over 11 years. I was sent to her by a friend at work who noticed I was dragging my leg. I had been having pain in my lower back and hips but chalked it up to my Rheumatoid Arthritis and thought that nothing could be done. I had never been to a chiropractor before and in fact had been warned by other people and doctors to avoid them. My friend actually made the appointment and I went. It was the last day before spring break started, in 2006. Before I even had the paper work filled out I was called back to see Dr. C. She examined my back and ordered X-rays. She came back to the room and explained that I had a bad case of scoliosis. I did not know what that was and she explained that my spine was crooked.When she showed me the X-rays, I was almost in tears and asked what could be done. She assured me that she could help. I came back every day the following week and was adjusted and spent the rest of spring break using ice and ibuprofen to ease the pain. I kept all my appointments with Dr. C and by the time my son's wedding rolled around in June, I was able to dance the night away! Dr. C and the staff at APH have been awesome. 11 years later, I am doing well and Dr. C is working on my shoulder now and helping me avoid surgery if possible. I would recommend APH to anyone with back, neck or other issues. They take care of you like no one else will! I love them all! --Phyllis W.

I have been a patient of Dr. Carpentier for over 20 years. In my teens, I was involved in a car accident that resulted in whiplash/neck pain, and misalignment. Of course we went to see Dr. Carpentier right away! During my pregnancies, I continued to see Dr. Carpentier, to keep me as comfortable as possible. In recent years, I experienced some strange numb feelings in my fingertips (which was particularly scary, as I am a pianist). Dr. Carpentier explained where this was coming from (in my neck). In less than one month of beginning treatment, the numbness went away! I am so very thankful for Dr. Carpentier and her expertise. But most of all, I will always be grateful for her genuine care for all her patients' well-being. --Carrie C.

I have been a patient for over 30 years. My children and now grandchildren are patients. The chiropractors are wonderful. The office staff is great. Whenever I need an appointment they always are able to fit me in somewhere. I recommend these wonderful professionals! --Joan D.

Sylvie, Dr. White, Lotta and most recently, Dr. Monique White have all been part of my healing journey over the past eight years. I learned from the recommended informational meeting that your back is never "out" but rather in need of an adjustment or a spinal realignment. I have received excellent, regular chiropractic care from the team of professionals at Advanced Physical Health. I recently had some foot pain and Monique suggested stretching exercises along with intelligent and thoughtful insight into the possible cause. I believe in chiropractic care as part of my health and wellness routine and highly recommend this team of caring and trained professionals to anyone. --Shera M.

I have been seeing Dr. Monique White for 6 months now. At the time I began treatment I experienced lumbar and thoracic back pain at least 3 days out of the week ranging from 3-6 in severity on a scale of 10. This is a rough approximation, however for the last 2-3 months the pain has been significantly less frequent and less severe (once per month on average and 1-2 on a scale of 10). The pain would often resolve immediately following an adjustment. It is worth mentioning that I needed to continue eating healthy, sleep adequately and exercising regularly to optimize this treatment. This is a very effective preventative measure to consider before resorting to more aggressive and invasive alternatives. Chiropractic treatment has provided much more relief than I anticipated and has enhanced my overall health in ways I did not expect. I can also speak highly of their acupuncture therapy, which has helped with my migraines. The Whites are a wonderful family and Dr. Monique White has been incredibly kind and empathetic. The front desk staff are very welcoming, professional and pleasant as well. I am very fortunate to be under Dr. Monique White's care and I am glad I began seeing her sooner than later. --Pascale B.

Dr. Carpentier has been my chiropractor since 2001. I have suffered with sciatica most of my life, but after going to Sylvie I rarely have pain. And when the sciatica does occur I never worry because I know that she will fix it. Plus she cares about my overall health. It is like going to a good friend to improve your health. Finding a great chiropractor like Dr. C is essential when you suffer from sciatica. Advanced Physical Health is a wonderful place, where I always feel welcome, getting an appointment is super easy, and everyone is friendly and caring. --Rebecca S.

Excellent care and staff. I had terrible upper and lower back pain and did not want to treat it with medication. I wish I had made an appointment much sooner, and am now, after about 2 months, back to my normal routine. Dr. Carpentier is excellent. --Karen S.

I know they are very competent and caring doctors. Now we have a second generation doctor in Monique. They form the perfect team and I strongly recommend them for you health. --France C.

I'm almost 68, have been going to Dr. White for about 28 years and would highly recommend him. Regular adjustments have allowed me to lead a fairly active life despite deteriorating discs. Over the years I've been helped after falls, during illnesses, and "after-gardening" aches and pains. The staff and Doctors at Advanced Physical Health are the best! --Nancy A.

Dr. Matt White is super awesome. He keeps me moving. I had pinched nerves in my neck and he made it all better. Took more than a couple of treatments but I'm doing great today. --Judy B.

Dr. Monique is a very kind and skilled chiropractor. She takes the time to listen to her patients and is extremely knowledgeable in how to best help them with their healthcare needs. It was a pleasure working with her! --Timmie F.

Dr. Monique is wonderful! She does such a great job making me feel better and always has a smile on her face to brighten your day. Would highly recommend her and this office! --Paula K.

I highly recommend Dr. Mo the Chiro (Monique White) and her parents at APH. Dr. White & Dr. Carpentier have been at this for over 30 years. They truly care and take the time to teach their patients. Great team. Beautiful office. Keep up the fantastic work! --Tom B.

I have been going for years. I love them! Caring folks that make you feel so much better! Couldn't pay me to go anywhere else! --Lori L.

Dr. Sylvie Carpentier has been my chiropractor for more than 25 years and is such a talented and caring practitioner. Occasionally when Dr. C was unavailable, I have also been treated by Dr. Matt White, Dr. Lotta Timberlake, and most recently by Dr. Mo (Dr. Monique White) and have received expert care from every one of them. I highly recommend their practice. And I admire them so much for the work they have done through the not-for-profit “Pascale’s Pals”, named for Sylvie and Matt's daughter Pascale White who is a childhood cancer survivor. Pascale’s Pals has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for MU Children’s Hospital and to support individual sick children and their families. They have made a huge difference in so many lives through their chiropractic practice and their philanthropic work. Wonderful people!!! --Ginny B.

Monique is one of the most servant-hearted people I have had the absolute pleasure of knowing, so it's no surprise that she treats her patients with such kindness and grace during their visits. I was apprehensive about beginning chiropractic care at a young age, but its with a sense of relief and overwhelming appreciation that I have done so! I immediately felt as though I was in the best of hands as I begin this journey of healing and I can't imagine going anywhere else. I only regret not having gone sooner..
Thank you Dr. Mo! --Lauren C.

Everyone is amazing!!! I truly appreciate the care and compassion that is given to every patient. --Jenaye A.

Dr. Sylvie has been our family chiropractor for quite a few years. I deeply appreciate her kindness and dedication in helping us work through various health challenges. We're been patients for quite a few years and plan to continue dealing with the majority of our health care with Advanced Physical Health. --Barb O.

I have been friends with the Carpentier/White family for years. I went to Dr. Carpentier when I was getting treatment for my scoliosis back in high school. I also followed Monique White recently during her clinicals in St. Louis and also during her first year practicing as a chiropractor. I have never seen a group of people so dedicated to helping others. Their passion in their practice shows as soon as you walk in the door. It is obvious that they care so much about the health and well being of their patients and will work hard to get them feeling better. In addition, my mom has seen Dr. Timberlake for treatment and has been very happy with her as well. They are such a good group of people and I would highly recommend any of the four for chiropractic needs. --Kelly P.

Chiropractic care at Advanced Physical Health has helped me immensely to avoid pain in my life. During my pregnancies, I developed sciatic nerve pain, and would haul myself to the chiropractor wincing with hip pain every step of the way, only to walk out 15 minutes later with no pain at all. Over the past two years I have had two shoulder injuries and Dr. Carpentier has helped me to recover from those, as they affected my neck as well. When I was I college twenty years ago, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome and was referred to a surgeon to correct it. Instead, I chose to explore chiropractic care. Dr. White adjusted my neck, spine, and wrists, and I was able to completely avoid the surgery. Chiropractic care with these wonderful doctors has been a Godsend for me. Highly, highly recommend. --Janelle L.

Two times I have messed up my shoulder. Sleeping wrong, all the sitting for work, and overexertion have been a constant pain for me. After months of waiting for it to go away, it finally ached so bad that I decided to see Dr. Mo the Chiro (Dr. Monique White). After my first exam and treatment, I felt instant relief. After a couple visits, I had full range of motion and no aches or pains in my shoulder/neck/back. When I messed it up a second time, I restarted my treatments and am already feeling much better again. The office staff are very bright, chipper, and vibrant. Dr. Carpentier has worked on treating my sinus problems, allergies, and headaches with acupuncture (which I now believe in - even though I didn't before). The benefits I see from trusting Dr.'s White, Carpentier, and White is unbelievable!!! They are truly a family that takes care of your family. I can't praise them high enough. I always leave feeling better physically, mentally, and emotionally. --Brandon B.

Dr. Monique White isn't just a great doctor but she is also a kindhearted person who will listen and do her best to take care of you. She is extremely intelligent and you would be lucky to have her as your doctor. --Victoria K.

Because I can't take pain relievers, Dr. C is my only hope in controlling pain. She is a lifesaver!! --Donna D.

I've been going here for about 15 years now and have never been happier. I refuse to see any other chiropractor! Sylvia is amazing! She cares about my personal life and my health. She's like family to me and all of my family. Her daughters and husband are just as sweet as well! --Hannah B.

Dr. Monique always goes the extra mile to insure hospitality during my family's appointments. My elementary-age daughters were hesitant to get adjustments at first but with Dr. Monique's gentle touch they now look forward to their appointments. The other doctors and staff have been friendly as well. If you're looking for long term, reasonably priced, gentle chiropractic care then this is the place to go!! --Dee Dee S.
