Spine Care of Alexandria
Helps You Live Pain Free!
Welcome to Spine Care Associates of Alexandria! Our Alexandria-based office has been serving patients from the Franconia, Kingstowne, Springfield, Lorton, Rose Hill and Ft. Belvoir communities for over twenty years. Our lead chiropractor, Dr. Philip Connolly, has helped many patients overcome chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches and sciatica to live a full and active life. If you or someone you know is struggling to find natural pain relief that doesn't depend on prescription medication, you've come to the right place!
Alexandria Chiropractic Care Provides
Pain Relief and Healing the Natural Way
Dr. Connolly gives patients the highest quality care using the latest chiropractic techniques. He uses non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic care, massage therapy, spinal manipulative therapy, myofascial techniques, and non-surgical spinal decompression to correct a herniated disc, relieve low back pain and help patients manage chronic pain and recover from injuries.
If you are new to chiropractic care or non-invasive treatments,
we understand that you may have questions about how these treatments
work. We invite you to visit the "Services and Techniques" part of our
website to learn more about approach to whole body wellness. The science
behind each of our treatments is explained in detail, including how decompression back treatment can correct a herniated disc and restore alignment to a patient's body.
Our goal with every treatment is to restore movement and function to your body, ease pain, and resolve the underlying musculoskeletal issue that is causing you pain. Whether you suffer from neck pain, back pain or sciatica, we know that every patient is different and will tailor a treatment program specifically for your needs. We may also recommend complimentary care, such as massage therapy or physical therapy, to speed the healing process.
Dr. Connolly's treatment approach focuses on the spine's structure and function, and how the spine and nervous system interact to affect one's lifestyle. Many causes of pain, such as a herniated disc, are the result of an alignment problem with skeletal system that results in one or more discs putting pressure on the nerves. Dr. Connolly uses hands-on spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) to help heal not only the spinal joints, but also the muscles supporting the spine. By restoring alignment, this removes pressure from the nerves and relieves back pain, neck pain and leg pain.
At Spine Care of Alexandria, we believe that a complementary approach to treatment produces the best results. Our chiropractor frequently combines spinal manipulative therapy with another conservative, non-invasive treatment such as myofascial tissue release. Myofascial tissue release is a form of massage therapy that promotes healing in the soft, connective tissues in the body. Our massage therapists also combine elements of myofascial release with acupressure and trigger point therapy during deep tissue and sports massages.
We believe that a whole body approach to wellness is the best way to heal your body and treat pain. An important part of this treatment process is proper nutrition. Our Certified Holistic Health Counselor, Amy Andrejewski, can help you live a better, healthier life through basic dietary and lifestyle changes. Each person is different, and no one diet works for everyone. That's why each of Amy's programs are completely personalized for your lifestyle and dietary needs. Through better nutrition, you can overcome common health complains, including headaches, chronic fatigue and digestive issues.
We offer military discounts for active duty service members and their families. Don't let neck and back pain stop
you from living a full life. There are safe, natural and effective
alternatives to prescription painkillers. Medication only covers up pain
-- a decompression back treatment can solve the underlying
problem, so you can live your life pain-free without being dependent on
medication. Come visit your Alexandria chiropractor, Dr. Connolly, and take back your life! Call us at 703.719.7302 to schedule an appointment.
