Thalia Chiropractic and Wellness Frequently Asked Questions.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy that the human body is able to heal itself, given the proper circumstances. Chiropractors work with the spine and nervous system (brain, spinal cord, nerves). The nervous system is the Master Control System and controls and coordinates all organ functions in the human body.
What is an "adjustment"?
A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying a gentle, specific force to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. As a result, the nerve interference is removed and the body is able to function optimally.
What is spinal manipulation?
Spinal manipulation, also called spinal manipulative therapy or manual therapy, combines moving and jolting joints, massage, exercise, and physical therapy. It's designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It's often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain.
Why choose chiropractic care?

What does the word chiropractic actually mean?
