Welcome to Back to Health Center, where our Alexandria chiropractor will help you get back to what matters most: living a healthy, active and pain-free life. Our integrated approach to pain management and injury rehabilitation supports whole body health.
Chiropractic care, acupuncture, physical medicine and massage therapy are patient-proven effective treatments that relieve pain and help the body heal. By addressing the underlying cause for pain or injury, our treatments will help you get back to health.
Chronic low back pain, neck pain or headaches are three common health problems affecting thousands of patients in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. When we spend long hours hunched over computer screens or stuck in our cars commuting, poor posture can strain the lower back. A minor fender bender can cause whiplash injuries that trigger chronic neck pain and headaches. Even a slip and fall or a muscle strain while jogging along the Potomac can cause serious injury.
Many of our patients come to us after other treatments have failed to work. Medication, for example, can provide temporary pain relief, but cannot correct the underlying injury. As soon as medication wears off, the pain returns. Consequently, our patients fear a lifetime of chronic pain and or constant reliance on medication. At Back to Health Center, we can show you a better, healthier way to get back to being you.
chiropractor AlexandriaOur Alexandria chiropractor, Dr. Shara Posner, is here to help. With years of experience serving D.C. area patients, Dr. Posner understands that healing comes from within. Our job is to unlock your body’s natural ability to heal itself – rather than fighting against this ability with medication and invasive procedures.
When the spine is misaligned, the entire body is at risk for illness and injury. For example, a herniated disc compresses nearby nerves, triggering a radiating pain sensation. This nerve compression also affects the brains ability to send and receive messages using the central nervous system. Patients suffer chronic fatigue, struggle with low-grad illnesses, and suffer from general poor health. Dr. Posner uses chiropractic care to bring balance and alignment back to the body. By restoring proper alignment, we help relieve pressure on the nerves, correcting the underlying trigger for chronic pain.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our patients benefit from integrated wellness services for enhanced pain management and injury rehabilitation. Acupuncture treatments, for example, stimulate the nervous system to bring energy and biochemical balance back to the body. These treatments are effective for pain control, as well as treating digestive disorders, respiratory disorders, low back pain and neck pain.
Physical medicine includes therapeutic exercises for the back, neck and extremities. These exercises bring strength, stability, coordination and flexibility back to injured muscles, without causing new injuries. Massage Therapy is also an important complementary to chiropractic care. Massage therapy promotes internal healing while releasing tension trapped deep within the muscle fascia for natural pain relief.
