Dr. Shara Posner
Your Alexandria Chiropractor
The extraordinary care that I have received from Dr. Shara at the Back to Health Center has been nothing short of amazing! I contacted the office after reading that my particular condition, stenosing tenosynovitis, (aka trigger finger/thumb) could be successfully treated with the Graston Technique. Before Graston with Dr. Shara I was experiencing catching, popping, & clicking in both thumbs. I had swelling from inflammation and was unable to do basic things like turn doorknobs, squeeze a toothpaste tube, or button & zip my clothes without pain. Both Dr. Angela and Dr. Shara were hopeful and encouraging. I was somewhat surprised, but thrilled, to see immediate improvement. After a few weeks my right thumb was nearly back to 100%; the left one was a bit more stubborn but still improving.
Graston is only one of the benefits that I've experienced at Back to Health.
Dr. Shara has helped me understand more fully how food effects my health. I had been actively adding anti-inflammatory foods to my diet. Dr. Shara has identified foods that cause inflammation and encouraged me to eliminate them. I am amazed at how much joint stiffness can be reduced by following Dr. Shara's sound advice.
During a visit I mentioned that one of my ears seemed to be closed up. Dr. Shara recommended that I try garlic oil, and I am pleased at how well it works. Dr. Shara helped me avoid a visit to my primary care doc and possibly the ENT specialist. Both of those offices had a 3 week wait; the garlic oil worked in about 3 days!
I am extremely grateful for the outstanding care that I receive from Dr. Shara, and I highly recommend the Back to Health Center to anyone who is interested in improving their health through high quality care.
Doctor Shara is my first line of defense with anything that ails me. Following the principle that if the spine is properly aligned, the body will heal itself, I see Dr. Shara first whether I have sinus problems, back problems, digestive problems or tendinitis. She has helped me tremendously and increased my quality of life with her skilled treatment and caring nature. She is one of a kind and we are lucky to have her.
Shara was a Godsend. I had tried everything to relieve my back pain: pills, diet, exercise, and chiropractors but nothing really worked. I was to the point where I couldn't even carry the lightest briefcase. Then a friend told me about Shara and after a few sessions with her the pain disappeared. It seemed miraculous.
My son, Michal has been battling a baseball injury to his pitching arm for two years. We have gone to two orthopedic sport surgeons and had an MRI. Both doctors agreed that he had a little tendinitis and physical therapy and rest would heal. Well after two years had past and he even skipped playing a baseball season, we turned to Dr. Shara. After six visits, she said that something is definitely wrong with his shoulder. Dr. Shara ordered an arthogram MRI which determined that he indeed had a tear to his labrum.
It is just incredible that we went to two highly recommended orthopedic sports doctors and neither one ordered an Arthogram MRI (where you inject a die in the tissue to see if you have a tear).
Honestly, if it was not for Dr. Shara, we would still be searching for answers. Michal did have his surgery and we went with a surgeon that Dr, Shara recommended and the operation was a success.
Dr. Shara, is extremely personable and genuinely took an interest in Michal. She always followed up with email or phone call (I am still waiting for phone calls from the four other doctors we have seen in two years!). We were blessed to have met you.

I thought I died and went to heaven last Friday. I had such excruciating pain in my piriformis muscle (lower butt/upper thigh) area but after the first session with Dr. Shara I felt so, so much better. This is the second time Dr. Shara has given me back my ability to enjoy my daily routine. The first time was lower back pain and over a course of treatment, Dr. Shara relieved me of it and it's been two years!
Prior to my visits at Back to Health Center, I've had constant neck and lower back pain. I sit in front of a computer most of the day for work (which affects my posture tremendously). After my first visit to the Back To Heath center, I noticed a significant decline in my back pain. It took only a few adjustments more from, Dr. Shara before the pain stopped altogether. I can't stop telling all my friends and family to make an appointment, it's really improved my back pain! Thanks Dr. Shara!
Dr. Shara's Back to Health Center is a great place to get adjusted. It's a fun, relaxing place to hang out and meet some of Old Town's friendliest, healthiest people!
Back to Health Center gets my respect for quality of care, timeliness of visits, excellent customer service, smooth insurance handling, and an overall good time!
On my first visit, I explained to Dr. Shara that I have always experienced Back Pain as well as I play a lot of golf. I thought that was the price you pay to play.
Dr. Shara advised me that pain was not normal, and with proper back adjustments and stretching exercises, that I could play pain free. She even advised that I would play better .
Dr. Shara relieved the hip pain in less than 2 weeks. The back pain quickly disappeared as well, once I followed the excellent stretching protocols that Dr. Shara provided.
I now play more often than I could before, - and I play better.
Thank you Dr. Shara!!!
Thank you for all that you have done for me since January. I was scared I was heading for a third surgery when I came to see you. But all thanks to you I have avoided it and became "me" again. You have such passion and a strong enthusiastic approach for your patients. I believe this is the main reason that you are #1 in Alexandria.
I am so glad my husband suggested I come see you. I almost didn't come, as in the back of my mind, you would have been another doctor not able to help me. As I mentioned in our first meeting, I have been pretty miserable for the past five to ten years with chronic pain, exhaustion, digestive issues, etc. You are the first person to take the time to really listen and evaluate all my broken pieces and put me back on a path to get them all back together! I can't believe that in such a short time, I am already seeing a turn around in my mental and physical health. Thank you for putting it all together for me-recipes, vitamins, stretching with Roy, and chiropractic adjustments.
I’ve been dealing with chronic tendonitis in both elbows for about three years now. I tried laying off exercise, applying ice, taking OTC anti-inflammatory meds, and even tried standard chiropractic treatment (massage, ultra sound, electrical stimulation, physical therapy) for this condition, all of which provided little or temporary relief. I started seeing Dr. Shara about two months ago for Kinesio taping treatment on both elbows. This special tape, when applied correctly helps to stabilize the elbow tendons allowing them to start the healing process. I have to say that I am finally turning the corner on this condition all due to Dr. Shara’s expertise in this technique.
Seriously, THANK YOU SO MUCH. You healed me. My hip and back feel almost perfect. Every now and then there is a little pain but I think that is from a lack of stretching from beening so busy and made the scar tissue, but I am getting better each day. I went on a run the other day and didn't feel all tight and hurting for the first time! Thank you for helping me because when I came to you I had lost hope that I would get back to normal and feared I'd forever be in pain and out of alignment on my legs. You really are the best!
I spent eight months in agony due to a sports injury to my hip. I could not walk a city block without having to stop and bend over to try to relieve the pain in my hip and lower back. I went to my general medical doctor and also to my orthopedic doctor. Each took x-rays, said I had inflammation and gave me a prescription to relieve the inflammation. I have always been very pessimistic on chiropractic procedures but was at about my last straw. I did an internet search on chiropractors in the Alexandria area. When I reviewed Dr. Posner’s internet site I read all of the testimonials. They seemed all pretty amazing. I figured I had nothing to lose. Immediately after my first appointment with Dr. Posner, the pain I had in my hip was relieved and it has not hurt me since. Dr. Posner and her staff are absolutely some of the friendliest and accommodating medical professionals I have ever worked with. Dr. Posner is a complete professional, explains everything in detail, is very clear what may or may not work, and I am 100 percent sold on chiropractic therapy from now on. I recommend Dr. Posner without any reservations to anyone with a condition similar to mine. Thanks Dr. Posner, you have saved me from a lot of pain and consider me a patient for life!!!!!!
