It was a no-brainer that I needed to pursue a career as a chiropractic physician.”

Dr. Teresa states, “Being a chiropractor allows me to service the community without the use of drugs, surgery, or medicine. I believe that the body was designed to heal itself and we as chiropractors are blessed with the ability to realign the spine so that the body can do its best work.”

When asked what she loves most about working at The Joint Chiropractic, Dr. Teresa responded, “it brought me back to my roots.” She loves practicing at both our Madison and Decatur locations. “As a chiropractor, we do not need tools to achieve our number one goal.

Dr. Defalco knew becoming a chiropractor was her calling after she injured her back while playing basketball in middle school and was taken to see a chiropractor because of the pain she was in. “After one adjustment I was able to walk out of the office, and from then on I knew I needed to learn more about this profession and be able to help people like my Chiropractor helped me,” Dr. Defalco said. “One of the best things about being in the Chiropractic field is being able to improve people’s function and mobility.
