Charleston Pain Relief and Wellness Center

Dr. Angela Tharnish


Clinic Director & Owner

Jumping into the health and wellness journey with my amazing patients at the Charleston Pain Relief and Wellness Center, I'm Dr. Angela Tharnish. I'm all about health, not just because it's my job, but because I live and breathe it. And guess what? I've got the knowledge, chops, and real-world experience to back it up. 


My educational path began at Metropolitan State College in Denver, CO, where my fascination with the human body's capabilities led me to major in Human Performance and Sport, with a specific emphasis on Exercise Physiology. This groundwork provided me with a deep understanding of how physical activity influences the body and mind, setting the stage for a career dedicated to enhancing health through holistic practices.


My journey continued at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida, where I graduated in 2006. The rigorous program there not only deepened my appreciation for the body's innate ability to heal but also equipped me with the skills to support this process through chiropractic care. My education didn't stop with my graduation; I have continually sought to expand my expertise. A significant milestone in my professional development was completing comprehensive training from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego in whiplash and brain injury traumatology. This specialized training has been crucial in allowing me to provide exceptional care for patients recovering from auto accidents, addressing their physical needs with an informed and sensitive approach.


Over the past 16 years, I've been privileged to serve the North Charleston community, treating a diverse range of patients from infants to the elderly. My practice has always been centered around active rehabilitation and exercises, emphasizing the importance of engaging the body in its own healing process. This approach has proven especially beneficial for my weight loss patients, for whom a combination of targeted physical activity and nutritional guidance can make all the difference.


My goal has always been to help as many people as possible to achieve optimal health and wellness. By focusing on educating my patients about the fundamentals of nutrition and the benefits of active rehabilitation, I empower them to take charge of their health journey. Whether it's aiding in recovery from an injury or guiding someone on their weight loss path, my aim is to provide the tools and knowledge necessary for my patients to live healthier, more active lives.


My commitment to guiding individuals toward better health through understanding nutrition and active rehabilitation remains unwavering. My approach is grounded in the belief that achieving and maintaining optimal health transcends the concept of dieting; it's about adopting a lifestyle that promotes well-being. By focusing on educating my patients about the principles of nutrition and the benefits of consistent physical activity, I empower them to take control of their health journey. Whether it's aiding in recovery from an injury or navigating the path of weight management, my objective is to equip my readers with the insights and strategies necessary for a healthier, more vibrant life. Here's to embarking on this journey together, toward a future where health and happiness are not just goals, but a way of living.
