Chiropractic care is one of the main services practiced at Circle Chiropractic Center in Fairfax, VA. If you've never experienced chiropractic care, you may wonder what this form of treatment is all about and how we use it to help heal the body.
Chiropractic care is traditionally a manual form of joint manipulation, although modern instruments and technologies have enhanced its versatility since it was first developed by D.D, Palmer in the 1890s. These manipulations are meant to correct small deviations in joint position. This kind of imbalance, known as subluxation, interferes with joint function and can throw your body off-balance, creating soft tissue strain and pinched nerves that impair nerve communications.
While you might expect the correction of subluxation to relieve joint pain and improve your range of motion, this form of care can improve your health and comfort in many other ways as well, thanks in part to its ability to improve your nervous system function.
Chiropractic adjustment may be prescribed to treat everything from chronic pain disorders such as fibromyalgia, headaches, and migraines to internal organ dysfunction, hypertension, and sub-par immune system response (a factor in allergies, ear infections, and a variety of other health problems). In fact, the very first chiropractic adjustment successfully improved its recipient's hearing. Chiropractic care is often the treatment of choice for personal injuries, ranging from auto accidents to slip and fall injuries. Regular screenings and adjustments can even help preserve your ongoing wellness.
Chiropractic care has some important advantages over other medical treatments. Not only it is non-invasive in nature, but it treats pain more thoroughly than drugs by actually addressing the underlying cause of the pain, not just the surface symptoms.
Our Fairfax chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, offers many different kinds of chiropractic techniques. In addition to the effective all-purpose Diversified Technique, we can also administer the Thompson Technique, a diagnostic and treatment method that employs a segmented "drop table." You may also benefit from the Gonstead Technique, which enables us to find and release areas of internal scarring. Our spinal decompression therapy can treat disc-related nerve impingement. We also offer techniques that focus on a particular part or zone of the body, such as Cranial Technique and Sacro-Occipital Technique.
Your chiropractic treatment may be complemented by some of the other all-natural conservative healing modalities at our clinic. Acupuncture, cold laser therapy, massage therapy, interferential electrical muscle stimulation, corrective exercises, and other treatments can provide pain relief, accelerate tissue healing, and generally help you get more complete results from your adjustment sessions.
