HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chris Maffit DC! I have been searching for a top chiropractor in St. Louis with extensive education, experience and one who also specializes in treating athletes- and I have found him! I've been to multiple chiropractors and he is by far the very best. I love the unique and holistic approach he takes- using the NUCCA Spinal Correction (which is a much more gentle and non-invasive way of adjusting plus more effective!). After just a few adjustments I experienced noticeable differences and as a swimmer, my performance greatly improved as well! He really helped me prepare for my open-swim event that I was worried about because I was in pain and clearly out of alignment!
Dr. Maffit really cares about each of his patients and providing the best care and most up-to-date techniques possible. It is obvious what his passion is and he does a wonderful job. Functional Medicine at it's finest! Thank you, Doctor! I will be spreading the word about you!

Delta Spinal Care has saved my life! After starting treatment with Dr. Flory in December, I have stopped taking many of the medications that were needed to control my daily headaches and weekly migraines. I have also made great progress in my fibromyalgia and have a significant improvement in my overall health. The staff at Delta Spinal Care truly cares about your well being! I would strongly suggest Delta Spinal Care to anyone who has struggled with neck or back pain.

  • Relief for those who suffer from pain.
  • May need to drive a long distance.

Are you tired of being in constant pain? Have you tried just about everything, getting some relief but then it stops working and or your finances are exhausted along with you? That too was me until one day, while researching to find help for my cervical, sciatica pain, and herniated discs, up popped a 3D rotating spine simulator, from Delta Spinal. There was an invitation to click on the simulator; I did so by selecting the areas that were giving me such awful pain, as I clicked the corresponding symptoms came into view as well as the nerves that were troubling me. What I also saw was that my tilted head was also a symptom. I noticed in my recent photos, that my head was tilted so drastically in comparison to all others.
Then and there I decided to check this out and clicked on contact us. Within minutes I received a phone call from the Dr.Maffit himself! It didn't matter that I had little too no money or the fact that I lived several miles away; he assured me he could help and after his caring conversation I believed it bore further investigation. With my first appointment now made a miracle was about to unfold, the miracle that has changed my life.
First visit was talking history, about the symptoms plaguing my life with debilitating pain, and suffering. Then he preformed a high-tech diagnostic test, using a machine similar to an ultra sound, (rolling thermal scan) down my spinal column to measure skin temperatures, to find any and all my nervous system disturbances, these temperatures told him which other vital organs, and glands, that may be affected. It also indicates the presence and severity of abnormal muscle activity, such as weaknesses or excessive tissue thick ness's.
Next he ran a Static EMG scan, on my muscles, looking to locate abnormal tension, or fatigue, and compared these readings to a fixed Normative scan, this shows a correct pattern of symmetrical standards for balance, which is the goal for individuals to obtain. Last but not least his lab tech took orthogonal X-rays, this shows him the spinal column from the top of the head looking down on its alignment in the body itself.
Each visit balance is measured, and the Atlas bone is adjusted using precise measurements, by utilizing math, geometry, and physics, to slide everything back into place with his hand, which feels like an Angels touch. Never once has there been any pulling, jerking, or yanking, no, no, no, never ever!
I call it technology meets chiropractic, Spinal Engineers if you will. The results after 12 visits, is I can walk un-assisted around my home, (I still use a cane outside for assurance I won't have a set back). After 11 long years of inability, I can cross my legs, I can step up to 12 inches, (I used to only be able to make 1/8th of an inch, assisted) absolutely no sciatica pain, relief from painful herniated discs, and 3 subluxations, heartburn is gone, am off one high blood pressure medicine, and my second BP medicine is cut in half, and I no longer feel weighted down by my body; instead I feel light on my feet. The adjustment he makes to my adrenal glands has reduced my stress. Bladder incontinence, gone and my head is no longer tilted in my pictures unless a photographer tells me to tilt it and please you do not have to tell me to smile because that is one thing that I have plenty of.

Sincerely yours,

Smiling Karen Pilger

I had sciatica and was going to physical therapy, I was still in pain until I found Delta Spinal. Dr. Chris is very understanding and wanted to find the cause of the pain. He did, he also explains the treatment in detail and makes you feel comfortable and part of the process. I have recommended several family members, friends and co-workers. The staff, Trudy, Kelsey, and Emily are warm and outstanding people and welcomes you with a smile. My husband and daughter are patients of Dr. Chris also!! Delta Spinal will always be our chiropractor home.... We love them!! If you are tired of being in pain and want a solution, I recommend Delta Spinal highly.

  • Minimal wait time and good hours.
  • In Clayton. While centrally located, Clayton is tough for many folks to get to.

I was due to have a cervical fusion last week and the Dr. cancelled a week prior saying I was high risk since I had a heart attack in October and was on blood thinners. My Cardiologist wouldn't take me off the thinners so I had no options. My brother went through the NUCCA process where they align your spine based on all the testing and x rays they completed. The process is painless and I am getting great results. The staff there is fantastic and Dr. Chris Maffit takes time to explain everything to me and answer all questions. Glad I chose this procedure and this particular practice to complete the work.

From the moment you enter the door of Delta Spinal Care, you will know you are in a very special doctor's office. Smiling staff greet you by name. The sound of water in an indoor pond sets a relaxing tone. There is good reading material available in the waiting room, which is an open space with lots of chairs, and coffee is available to enjoy as well. There is never a long wait as appointments are met in a very timely manner. I think Dr. Chris is a wonderful and caring doctor. He doesn't just adjust you, he really talks to you about what's going on in your life and makes helpful recommendations for healthy living.

Customer Testimonials

Both my son and I have received excellent care with great results at the hands of Dr. Chris Maffit. Personally, I would not be participating in the activities that I love if I hadn't been under his care at Delta Spinal. I'm free now to be able to play my saxophone again, do all the fine sewing, cooking and crafts that I enjoy, sleep well at night, and go about my daily routine without the fear of my neck, shoulders and hands seizing up and tingling so bad that I can't use them at all. Thank God for caring talented doctors like Dr. Chris Maffit. I'm glad I called him to an schedule appointment. I urge you to call him too if you are suffering in your neck and back or anywhere in your skeletal, nerve, or muscle system.


I suffered with back issues for nearly 30 years. I visited dozens of chiropractors during that time. They could all ease the pain short term but no one was able to determine the root cause of the issue. That changed when I visited Dr. Maffit. After a few visits, the issue was solved. Now I go 3-4 times a year for a tune-up and remain pain free.


Went to see Dr. Maffit for low back pain. He was extremely personable and thorough. After receiving some adjustments on my neck and back I felt immediate relief! I would definitely recommend Delta Spinal Care to anyone looking for a great chiropractor in the St. Louis area!

From Our Website

The use of functional medicine integrates many complementary treatment options and focuses on how your present environment affects and interacts with your gastrointestinal, endocrine, and immune systems. At Delta Spinal Care in Creve Coeur, MO, your health and wellness is our top priority. Unlike other health care providers, we view our patients as whole people (not simply a list of symptoms that need to be fixed) and we work to help you find natural, holistic solutions for your healthcare needs.


Take Shape For Life is a refreshing new approach for reaching and maintaining optimal health. With Take Shape for Life, we focus on teaching you how to take control of your weight and health while provide the support to help make these changes permanent. Take Shape For Life is a simple, inexpensive, two-phase program. In the first phase we adjust your nutritional intake to allow your body to switch from storing energy as fat toburning the calories in your fat. In Phase 2 of the Take Shape for Life program, patients transition with the help of the BeSlim Philosophy into greater health, happiness and quality of life.


Once your body has healed, strengthened and stabilized, routine examinations can help ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system. When you make routine check-ups a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through, your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.


Most patients consult our office because they're suffering from some type of ache or pain. Visits are scheduled closer together during this early stage of acute care and there are three possible responses. BA few patients seem to get a little worse before they improve, but this is usually just because they have had some 'sleeping' muscles and when they wake up the patients notice. And I'm happy to report that most patients (the middle path of the first section) enjoy steady improvement, with each visit building on the ones before and they reach C'Decision Time.' (found at the fork in the YELLOW section of the graph) This is usually around the time the patient is having little to no more pain and is stabilizing.


After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine and X-rays, your doctor will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. The doctor will recommend the best and fastest way to achieve the goals that you stated during consultation. At the conclusion of your report of findings, you can often choose to receive your first treatment. You will be given a choice between relief and corrective care. Relief Care is the minimum amount of change to reduce symptoms but not necessarily eliminate the cause of the problem.

Continually wearing the wrong items, such as a heavy backpack or bag on one shoulder, can cause injury to your health. You probably wouldn't connect getting ill with what you wear, but perhaps you should. When it comes to being healthy, you probably don't give your clothes or accessories a second thought. The reality is that what you wear or carry could play a crucial role in your health, even making you ill if you continually wear the wrong items, such as a heavy backpack or bag. Clothing fit is also an important consideration for health.


Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced. For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear.
