Chiropractic - For a Healthy Lifestyle

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system, the nervous system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints like back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. All of the joints in your body are part of this musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good health.

The main treatment involves manual therapy including manipulation of the spine, other joints and soft tissue; treatment also includes exercises, health and lifestyle counseling. Traditional chiropractic assumes that a vertebral subluxation or spinal joint dysfunction interferes with the body's function and its innate intelligence, a notion that brings ridicule from mainstream science and medicine.

Dr. Ben J. Savoie DC. is the Doctor of Chiropractic for St. Joseph Medical Clinic. Dr. Savoie serves the clinic in treating patients with ailments that range from minor backache to severe arthritis. His services include specific spinal adjustments, therapeutic exercises, electrical stimulations and massages. Dr. Savoie can advise the patient on exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other conservative methods of care based on the patients health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.
