Andrew Burns, D.C., P.C. was born and raised in Bainbridge, Indiana. Years ago, something happened that changed his life forever.
“When I was very young, I was suffering from chronic ear infections. I was having them at least once a month. It was getting to the point where medication was not working anymore. The doctors wanted to perform surgery to put tubes in my ears, but my parents wanted to try one last thing. They took me to my grandfather who was a chiropractor. He did an exam, took some X-rays, and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment did not hurt; it actually felt good. I got relief, and the ear infections went away. I did not have to have the surgery! I have never forgotten that, and from that day forward it was my decision to go to chiropractic school. My grandfather also helped me when I was playing sports as I was growing up. He took care of my spine and kept me on the field without missing any playing time!
Chiropractic has truly helped me and my family. My goal in life is to help others experience the wonderful benefits of chiropractic. At my office, our purpose is to provide our patients with the best care possible, so they can increase the quality of their lives. Our mission is to help everyone live as long as possible, pain-free.”
Dr. Burns received his Bachelor’s Degree in Movement and Sports Science from Purdue University in 1996. In 1998 he completed his Bachelor’s in Human Anatomy. Dr. Burns graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in December of 1999. He coached 7th and 8th grade girls’ basketball for five years at Visitation Academy. Dr. Burns worked with another chiropractor for one year, and has been in private practice since 2001. His adjustment techniques include diversified, activator, and soft tissue techniques. He is currently involved in yearly continuing education through chiropractic seminars, which not only help him to keep up to date, but also fuel his passion for the work he does. He also delivers lectures on natural health and wellness to both private and public groups in the community.
Dr. Burns moved to the St. Louis area in 1996. He and his wife Heather enjoy working out and golfing, as well as spending family time with their three children, Luke, Kate, and Drew.
Our purpose at Body Balance Chiropractic is to help as many people as possible live a healthy, quality life without the use of drugs or surgery.

Side Effects? Or Direct Effects? (06/23/11)
The most common question that individuals ask before they ever take a prescription drug is, "What are the side effects?" Before you pop another pill, you must understand how medications' side effects directly affect your body today and in the years to come.
Medications are tested in a laboratory until the chemical reaction that they are designed to achieve is reproducible. The direct effects of this lab testing must be consistent before these chemicals are ever tested on animals or people. Once human testing begins, scientists measure the impact of these medications to see if they cause the same direct effects that were induced in a laboratory. If these effects are reproducible, the testing continues to see if any other effects occur. These are called "Side Effects" because they were not present in the laboratory setting and their impact on humans was outside of their intended effect. In actuality, these side effects are direct effects of these drugs on the body. Because we are all unique in our body chemistry, direct effects, labeled side effects, impact people differently, and they are much more common than people think.
The direct effects of Lipitor, for example, are constipation, gas, headaches, stomach pain, weakness, rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, chest pain, swelling of the mouth or face, bone, joint or tendon pain, change in urination, fever, chills, sore throat, flu like symptoms, joint pain, muscle pain, tiredness, bowel changes, skin changes, swelling of the hands or feet, yellowing of the skin or eyes. This "incomplete" list, according to drugs.com, shows that while Lipitor may affect cholesterol levels in the body, there can be dozens of other direct effects that impact you in an unhealthy way.
Drug companies prepare a list of side effects for the consumer, while also listing additional side effects that doctors should be aware of. If you go to drugs.com and type in any drug, then select "side effects," you will notice that the side effects to the consumer take up half a page while the side effects/direct effects for the physician to be aware of might be up to a dozen pages. Most people are unaware of all the effects that medications can cause, and often treat these symptoms with other drugs. This is dangerous because the interactions between drugs can cause even more severe direct effects. Too many people unknowingly go down this road until their body chemistry and health is completely screwed up.
Additionally, as in the case of Lipitor, there are twelve different listings of side effects/direct effects showing adverse reactions in greater than 2% of the cases. When you add the numbers of each direct effect, you will notice that nearly 60% of cases are experiencing at least one of these effects.
The direct effects of these medications, combined with the reality of our extended life spans to 80, 90, 100 years and beyond, and knowing that drugs only need to be tested for about 8 years before they are brought to the market, makes it obvious that living a lifestyle that keeps you independently healthy and free from the need for medications is your best long-term option.
Thomas Edison saw this coming over 100 years ago stating, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." The future is now. Our office will help you and your loved ones adjust your lifestyle so that you enjoy good health for a lifetime.
