Dr. Alex Taylor joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2021, working in several offices in the St. Louis, Missouri area including Saint Peters, O’Fallon, Chesterfield, St. Louis and Creve Coeur. In February 2022 he was named Clinic Director at The Joint Chiropractic in Cottleville, located in Saint Peters, Missouri.
Dr. Taylor is originally from Belleville, Illinois. He attended Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri and graduated in 2015 with a degree in Exercise Science.
Dr. Taylor was drawn to healthcare. “Growing up I always wanted to be in the medical field,” he says. But he knew chiropractic was his calling after suffering a car accident in high school. “The results from care were amazing! Not only for my whiplash injury, but from minor aches and pains that I assumed were normal,” according to Dr. Taylor.
Dr. Taylor decided to attend Logan University and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2018. He went on to practice in Belleville, Illinois and Bridgeton, Missouri before joining The Joint.
According to Dr. Taylor, the best part of being in the chiropractic field and working at The Joint Chiropractic is interactions with the patients. “They come in with pain or discomfort and after treating them they leave with relief and a smile on their face,” he says.
Dr. Taylor is married to his wife Sara, and they share two dogs – Ellie & Lacey, both light brown terrier mixes. He enjoys playing a plethora of sports including volleyball, pickleball and soccer. Additionally, he enjoys watching Blues hockey.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Taylor says that he always stocks his fridge with hot sauce “I am always trying to make almost any food spicy. The spicier the better!” he says.
Dr. Taylor says the coolest thing he’s ever done is hiking the Paintbursh Divide Loop in the Grand Tetons. “It was a 19-mile hike that my wife and I completed in about 9 hours. We got to 11,000 feet and it was completely worth the 360-degree lookout at the top and the incredible views during the descent,” he says.
Dr. Ed Ernstrom joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2021 and was named Managing Doctor of Chiropractic and Clinic Director at The Joint Chiropractic in Central West End, located in St. Louis, Missouri.
Dr. Ernstrom is originally from Martinez, California. He attended Brigham Young University and graduated in 2005 with a B.S. in Exercise Science.
Dr. Ernstrom says, “I was first interested in the sports medicine world. I called all the chiropractors and physical therapists in that area asking if they might be hiring. Only the chiropractors were willing to entertain my application for work. As they interviewed me to be an employee, I was interviewing them about their profession. I agreed with them that surgery and pain medications were being over utilized. I found out the chiropractic was an amazing option for individuals that are looking for care that didn’t default to surgery and opiates.”
Dr. Ernstrom moved forward with chiropractic and attended Logan University and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2010.
Dr. Ernstrom knew chiropractic was his calling because it came naturally. “It is my personality to be a helper and an entertainer. I have intuitive use of my hands. My brain thinks in the ways of biomechanics (force, vectors, torque, etc.). As I began to first treat individuals as a student, I felt at home performing care on individuals large and small, old and young,” he says.
r. Ernstrom says, “The best part of being in the chiropractic field is being the first chiropractor for an individual. In the United States, more than 90% of the population have never been to a chiropractor. Every time I am the first chiropractor for someone means that one more person will now know that there are more options to help them without surgery and medications for their pain.”
Dr. Ernstrom says the best thing about working at The Joint Chiropractic is, “When the patient comes off the table and thanks me with a smile.”
Dr. Ernstrom enjoys spending time with his wife Cambria and 3 sons (Zach, Brigg and Rock), as well as smoking/grilling met and exercising.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Ernstrom says that he always stocks his fridge with eggs and bacon. “I have adapted to low carb eating. Eggs and bacon are the prefect allowable meal that are quick and easy to cook up,” he says.
Dr. Ernstrom says his perfect dinner party would include his wife and 3 sons. “My oldest will be leaving the house soon and I will be an empty nester in about five years. Any time I can spend with all of them together is a cherished moment,” he says.
Dr. Ernstrom says he has done many cool things in his life. He has run for local office, survived a hurricane, had a close call with a tornado and experience both large and small earthquakes. “The single coolest thing I have ever done is being married for over 20 years and raising my 3 boys,” he says.
Dr. Jessica Smith re-joined The Joint Chiropractic family in July 2022 at the O’Fallon and Cottleville clinics. Dr. Jessi, as her patients call her, is originally from Florissant, Missouri. She previously practiced in St. Louis, Missouri, Columbia, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois.

Chiropractic has changed my life. Still to this day I love what I do and try to show my love for helping people in every adjustment that I perform,” she says.
Dr. Jessi says the best thing about being the chiropractic field is the ability to help everyone. “I love working with pregnant woman and I’m honored when parents decide to bring their children in for care. I have a passion for family care and love that The Joint Chiropractic makes it possible to see the whole family.”

For Dr. Jessi, the perfect dinner party would be with her grandma, grandpa and dad – all who passed away when she was a child. “I would love to have my daughter there with me so she could meet 3 of the people who influenced the person I became,” she says.
The most exciting thing Dr. Jessi has ever done was skydiving. “It was such an adrenaline rush and an out of body experience. I would love to do it again,” she says.
Dr. Allison Baugh joined The Joint Chiropractic family in March 2022 at the Cottleville clinic. Dr. Allie, as her patients call her, is originally from Jackson, Missouri.
Dr. Allie attended Southeast Missouri State and in 2019 earned a Bachelor Science in Life Science in addition to studying classical voice and music. She went on to earn her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan University in 2021.
Dr. Allie was motivated to get into the chiropractic field after getting in a car accident and benefiting from chiropractic care. “I met a chiropractor who was also a musician and began performing with him. I knew I wanted to do something in the healthcare field and shadowing in his office helped me chiropractic as the right fit,” she says.
Dr. Allie says the best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the care she can provide to her patients.
“Providing my patients with evidence-based and patient-centered care is rewarding as is seeing a patient learn to help themselves as well,” she says.
