St. Joseph Chiropractic offers the best of the old as well as the new. We blend traditional manual manipulation with newer technology in the form of physiotherapies to obtain maximum results.
St. Joseph Chiropractic is also happy to offer alternatives to manual adjusting for those who don't want to feel or hear their joints "pop". Some patients come to us with the natural fear of having their neck or back manipulated (cracked or popped). Other patients we look at and deem that manual manipulation may not be the safest or most comfortable treatment. In cases such as these, we use an instrument called the Arthrostim. Arthrostim is an electrically powered, multi-pulsed adjusting tool. It uses repetitive thrusts (at medium to low level of force) to help stretch the soft tissues (muscle/ligament), free-up fixed joints (arthritis) and actually helps in realigning segments that are out of place. The bottom line for our patients is that they need to see results and the treatment needs to be comfortable. Arthrostim helps allow this for nearly everyone.
