Want to know if any one with Thal Majors uses a chiropractor and how they are going?

I’m scared to use one as having Thal Majors we are prone to “Soft Bones”

Sorry, I can't answer your question FloWer, but there might be an alternative treatment to a chiropractor that is available for your needs?

I have always wondered this also, Flower.  I have wanted to see a Chiropractor for many years, but I'm worried about fractures with my Osteoporosis.  I'm curious if any Thals have been to them, also.  :)

Hi Flower

Have you tried seeing a chiropractor and just explaining to them your bone density? If you spoke to them maybe they can massage instead of manipulate?

Good luck and keep us posted. I will also ask around amongst my clinic.

Hi Poirot

A chiiropractic is founded on the principle that proper maintenance of the spine through chiropractic adjustment or maniipulation will ensure the well-being of the body. A doctor of chiropractic also reffered to as a chiropractor treats spinal column dysfunction. The Chiropractor relieves any spinal impediments to the normal functioning of the spinal column.

Basically repair men/woman for your back.

Hope this helps

Thanks for clearing that up, Miaki!
I knew that orthopaedics work on setting bones, so was confused what role a chiropractor plays.

I see a chiropractor occasionally to adjust my upper back and neck. A good chiropractor can help problems that most doctors will only drug.

I know many elderly people with fragile bones do see chiropractors, so there is no reason thal patients can't also see a chiropractor. Just make sure you explain your condition and the nature of your bones in advance.
I would also suggest asking friends and associates to refer you to a good chiropractor.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
