Oliver Chiropractic And Acupuncture

Chiropractic Care at Oliver Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Herndon:

Dr. Chris Oliver performs advanced spinal correction in our Herndon practice utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Chiropractic Physician, Dr. Chris Oliver has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patients are a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Chris Oliver can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being.

Chiropractic and acupuncture can work well together to compliment each other. Acupuncture is a natural way to treat an ailment by initiating the natural healing process of the body and decreasing symptoms and pain. Stimulating specific sensitive points on the body will create this response. Traditionally, the results are believed to come from clearing the meridians or energy pathways throughout the body. Medically they do not know why it works, but when they take an MRI of the brain while these certain points are stimulated, parts of the brain have shown to respond. When other non-acupuncture points are stimulated, there is no demonstrated response. Acupuncture can be performed both with needles and without needles.
