Dr. Matthew Wise joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2019 when he started at the St. Charles clinic. He was so impressed with The Joint’s practice model, that he went on to open the Eureka location. Dr. Wise has a strong passion for excellence and a concierge-style approach when treating his patients. He suffered from knee pain when playing sports in high school, and decided he wanted to be a chiropractor after his problem was solved by a chiropractor.
Dr. Wise earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of Dayton and his doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2003 and worked in private practice for several years, owning and operating several multi-specialty clinics involving chiropractors, medical doctors, and physical therapists. After many years of practice, he grew frustrated with patient care and treatment options being dictated by insurance companies that tend to not want to pay for the things that truly keep patients well! Dr. Wise feels the Joint’s practice model has allowed him to truly focus on what’s best for the patient, instead of what’s best for the insurance companies.
The Chiropractic techniques he uses in practice are mainly Diversified, Thompson and Activator Methods along with techniques such as ART and Graston addressing soft tissue issues. He subscribes to a "Total Body" approach to health care having worked with MD's, PT's, LMT's, Orthopedists and Neurologists in order to provide the best possible care to his patients.
When not practicing, Dr. Wise enjoys spending time with his family, mostly playing sports and games with them, as well as traveling, camping, and kayaking. He is an avid runner, having completed 33 full marathons, including Boston in 2004. And, he enjoys playing competitive tennis.
Dr. Kris Hammond joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2016 when he started at the St. Charles clinic. Dr. Kris earned his doctorate in 2012 from Logan College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Kris says the best thing he likes best about being a chiropractor is “seeing the relief patients get from chiropractic care”, he says. “Watching patients lives change from pain relief is incredible”.
Dr. Kris grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and worked there before moving to Missouri. He and his wife Megan enjoy biking on the Katy trail and taking walks at the local parks around the St. Charles area. In his spare time, Dr. Hammond enjoys weight lifting, traveling and golfing.
It was through high school football that Dr. Kris was led to chiropractic.
“I was entering high school and wanted to start playing football my freshmen year,” Dr. Kris says. “ My parents wanted to make sure I was okay to play the sport so we went for a physical to our family physician. After the physical, x-ray's were ordered and I found out that I had the start of scoliosis. I was then referred to a local chiropractor for a spinal assessment and treatment. I'll never forget the way I felt after my first adjustment. I felt instant relief of pain that I didn't know I had”. “ I always wanted to be in the health care field and was thinking about manual therapies for a career, it didn't long for me to decide that chiropractic was for me.”
“Working at The Joint allows us as chiropractors to focus on patient care and treat them on an individual basis”.
