It is common to experience the symptoms of neck, shoulder, or back pain. In fact, these types of back and spine-related pain affect millions of people every year. At Bodnar Chiropractic Center in Alexandria, the biggest reasons why patients come to visit our Alexandria chiropractor are lower or upper back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain. Other common symptoms seen by Dr. Bodnar are numbness, tingling (pins and needles), headaches, migraines, and a variety of muscular problems. Symptoms of pain can be the result of a variety of injuries including a workplace injury, a car crash or any accident which jolts the body, causing soft tissue damage and potentially a misalignment to the spine. Pain and other symptoms can also be the result something you're doing such as sleeping the wrong way, spending too much time in front of the computer, or not maintaining proper posture. In some cases, pain can be the result age-related changes. Most people will experience some sort of neck, shoulder, or back pain in their lives, and pain medication is often the first line of defense with conventional medicine. Unfortunately, pain meds do nothing to treat the underlying problem which is causing your pain and many drugs can cause unwanted side effects. For patients suffering from chronic neck, shoulder, or back pain, pain medications may not be enough.
If you've been suffering from neck pain, shoulder pain, or back pain in the Alexandria area, then you may not realize that chiropractic care is a non-invasive and drug-free therapy that is readily available in Alexandria at Bodnar Chiropractic Center.
If you haven't had the pleasure of experiencing chiropractic care at our Alexandria office, you may be worried that chiropractic adjustments may be painful or uncomfortable.
However, remember that Dr. Bodnar is a licensed chiropractor who is expertly trained on the mechanics of the spine. During your visit, Dr. Bodnar will never sharply 'twist' or 'pop' your neck, or perform other painful maneuvers. Instead, a licensed Alexandria chiropractor like Dr. Bodnar will use precise, targeted spinal adjustments to gently coax your spine back into its natural alignment. Dr. Bodnar also takes advantage of other proven holistic techniques such as acupuncture and massage to help your body rid itself of pain, regain lost range of motion, and improve the overall health of your spine and neck while promoting healing from within. An Alexandria chiropractor like Dr. Bodnar will use his expertise to restore the natural alignment of your spine, and his chiropractic adjustments can relieve pain in the soft tissues, increase circulation, and stimulate your body's nervous system!
