At Chiropractic Healthcare of St. James, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our St. James office.
We offer a variety of techniques to accommodate our patients' needs as we want your treatment to be pleasurable as well as beneficial. We can approach your treatment with advanced soft tissue techniques, instrument adjusting techniques, manual manipulation techniques or with using special tables designed to assist in mobilization.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for youDr. Gregory Thomaier can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
It has been said that posture is the window to the spine. That's because our external appearance is an indication of what is happening with the muscles and bones underneath. In reality, posture is actually a window to our health. It should be looked upon as an indicator, much like blood pressure can be used to indicate health issues of the cardiovascular system.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We offer the lastest posture analysis software to identify, quantify and correct poor posture. We also can provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment.
Contact us today and we can arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
