Whether you’re suffering from headaches, neck pain, low back pain, whiplash or you’re just looking to feel your best; the chiropractic care offered at the Back to Health Center in Alexandria is effective and comprehensive. A number of things can disrupt the spinal column, including car accidents, slip and falls or even sleeping on a poor mattress.
To fully understand how chiropractic care can help, it’s important to understand the structure and physical function of the spine. The spinal column is primarily made up of vertebrae, discs, countless nerves and the spinal cord. It’s the communication conduit for the brain. Every sensation and every instruction the brain initiates is relayed through the spinal cord. Any injury or misalignment of the spine can cause an impingement of nearby nerves and a misalignment of cushioning discs. When intervertebral discs press on nerves, it can cause chronic neck pain, headaches and low back pain in addition to disrupting the immune response and hormonal balances. Any misalignment of the spinal vertebrae or its discs is known as a subluxation.
Chiropractors use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled force to the spinal joint to improve spinal alignment and to improve body’s overall physical function. It’s a pain free experience for patients. In addition to spinal adjustments, chiropractic care may include modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation and traction to improve soft tissue healing and pain control, other treatments, such as massage and nutritional counseling and stretching exercises to improve strength, coordination and muscle balance. At the Back to Health Center, we take an integrated approach for chiropractic care.
Please call our chiropractors in Alexandria if you're in pain! We will take a complete patient history and may take X-rays for a diagnosis of the underlying problem. This allows our chiropractors to gain insight about your general health and pre-existing conditions and can then determine how both relate to your existing problem. Dr. Shara Posner DC and her team take a whole body approach when diagnosing and treating patients. Once a diagnosis is made, you can have your first adjustment session. Our chiropractic care seeks to correct imbalances in the musculoskeletal system that are causing you pain. Chiropractic care also provides natural relief for headaches, neck pain, low back pain and pain associated with whiplash.
In addition to an integrated approach in chiropractic care, we also utilize different methods as chiropractic techniques, as every patient is unique. Sometimes, a combination of chiropractic techniques works best to relieve you symptoms. For instance, our chiropractors in Alexandria may use the Cox technique for a decompression treatment, the Gonstead or Thompson technique to optimize specificity, light force techniques on pediatrics and Webster on prenatal. Whatever technique is chosen, you can feel confident that it’s best for your individual needs.
If you’re suffering from headaches, neck pain, low back pain or whiplash, give our chiropractors in Alexandria a call today!
