Introduction - Chronic Pain

Photoxpress_5306661.jpgDo you suffer from chronic pain? Be it your back, your neck, your pelvis, your wrists or anywhere else in your bones, muscles or tendons, if you suffer from it you will understand exactly what we are talking about, and you will also want to get your problem fixed effectively. Recent research indicates that over 100-million Americans suffer from chronic pain and that it costs the country a whopping $635-billion a year. Some folk regard us as chronic pain doctors, no problem there! As Chiropractors we have a passion for the work we do, and believe in restoring you to good health.

In Times Gone By

It's a funny old world out there! When we were youngsters we were lovingly raised on a simple, wholesome diet and few of us had serious health problems. Then along came fast food - not that we have any beef with the concept of "all things in moderation"! Add lack of proper exercise, depression, stress issues, and throw in genetic predisposition factors, and hey presto, chronic pain is arrive and well, if you'll excuse the expression. Well friends, welcome to the twenty-first century! Will it get worse before it gets better? We cannot answer that for sure, but we can point you in the right direction if you suffer from debilitating chronic pain. You are definitely in the right zone for a relieving, non-surgical and pill-free resolution. Why not let us be your chronic pain doctors.

Understanding Chronic Pain

Early medicine was really quite rudimentary, and offered few choices for the afflicted. Today, we are spoiled for choices and it can be confusing trying to decide how best to treat a problem. This is where many of us find ourselves when it comes to tackling chronic pain too. Off to the doctor we go, and before we know it we are under the very latest drug or surgical procedure. If that doesn't work we scratch our heads and go off in search of other options. But here's a whole new consideration for you - why not approach us first as chronic pain doctors? Sure, we are an alternate branch of medicine, but that translates to one huge plus if you consider that we understand what causes chronic pain, and that we know exactly how to treat it too.

Our Holistic Chiropractic Approach

It may sound profound, but if your car develops a mechanical problem where do you take it? Could it be to the auto electrician, to the panel shop, or possibly to the new car salesman as a trade-in? Only joking! We would naturally consult a good vehicle mechanic if the car does not run well. If only we applied the same logic to our bodies when it comes to sorting chronic pain! We are your chronic pain doctors, so talk to us first. We will listen carefully as you describe your symptoms. Then, will we ask you questions, lots of questions! You see, we understand how the musculoskeletal system hangs together, but we also know what can go wrong, and how. So, after careful cross-checking we will get down to the root causes, and then find a viable solution for you. Contact us to set up a first meeting at our state-of-the-art chiropractic center.

Avoiding Chronic Pain

Visit the American Chiropractic Association website. It has a number of very helpful tips that can assist in preventing the onset of chronic pain. It's really all about management of our daily lives from a holistic viewpoint. Follow the advice provided by the ACA and minimize the risk of developing excruciating pains in the back or any other part of your musculoskeletal system. If that's too late and you are already suffering, then book an appointment with us, your chronic pain doctors - solving your chronic pain is precisely what we do best.

Our Services & Our Team

We have a world-class team of provider specializing in chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, herbal medicine, reflexology and nutrition. Allow us to highlight some of their experience and expertise.


Casey Corridan is an experienced and licensed Acupuncturist, certified herbalist and Nutritional Health Coach who loves what she does for a living.

She became interested in Acupuncture through her studies and background in psychology. She knew that whatever she would do in this world, it would be working with and helping others. Corridan discovered Chinese and Holistic Medicine through her own need for it and was amazed by the results. In her practice today she is constantly impressed to see how a patients well being and health is improved by combining the art of TCM theory and knowledge with a passion for what she does. Nutrition, herbs and counseling are also strong components of helping each patient feel better and become healthier.

Casey recently moved to Virginia from New York City where she had a very successful practice and looks forward to working with her patients here at Bodnar Chiropractic Center.

If acupuncture has been recommended for you by a friend, family member or medical doctor, but you are apprehensive about making a first appointment, we invite you to learn more about Casey Corridan and our Alexandria VA Acupuncture services.

“I've been going to Casey for 3 years, and her professionalism and diligence never cease to amaze me! But better yet: she cares about her patients wholeheartedly. Every time I go for a visit, she always asks about how I'm doing and takes the time to LISTEN, recommending different treatments and remedies that will help me along to recovery. It's a pleasure to know her, as a person and a practitioner, and I always look forward to my scheduled appointments.”

- Monica M 

“Casey Corridan is not the first acupuncturist I have been to, however I need never go to any other. I first saw her 2 years ago, desperate with sciatica pain and left feeling 80% improved. By the next visit, I was at 100% .We then moved along to other issues I was having. If anything at all is not quite right, tell Casey about it. She'll treat and improve it, and often ...presto...the problem is gone! She is enormously knowledgeable and spot on in her treatment and then she gives a great massage! Finally, its the happy feeling of being in the company of such a lovely and warm human being. You'll see......”
