Chiropractic Care

At Family Chiropractic of Fairfax: My Family Wellness Center, we use many highly effective approaches to help improve your overall well-being, including spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.

We believe that your body needs no help, it just needs nothing in the way.

Helping Your Nervous System Perform at Its Peak

The spinal adjustment is used to address spinal subluxations, which is a misalignment of a bone (vertebra) of the spinal column in relation to the one above or the one below it.

When the vertebrae are misaligned they don’t move properly which causes an irritation at that level of the spine. This can start as a feeling of soreness or stiffness. This discomfort can progress to a stronger or sharper pain which can radiate down the leg (sciatica) or down the arm or up into the head as headaches (depending upon which spinal level is being irritated).

Irritation of the spinal nerves (peripheral nervous system) can cause those nerves to function incorrectly. Since the nerves of your body carry signals from your brain to every part of your body (telling it what to do) and also transmit signals from your body back to your brain (telling you what it is doing), irritation of these nerves can cause these signals to be interfered with, causing parts of your body to function improperly.

Spinal subluxations also cause earlier degeneration of the discs of the spine and earlier development of arthritis. Spinal subluxations can cause many health problems that are not usually associated with the spine.

The good news is that chiropractic can remove that interference so your body can function optimally.

Providing a Thorough Consultation & Exam

Before we provide a chiropractic spinal adjustment, a thorough consultation and examination (often including X-rays) are performed to determine if a spinal subluxation exists and to confirm that a spinal adjustment is performed safely.

Our chiropractic spinal adjustment is a gentle movement of the spinal vertebra, which is performed by hand, to carefully move the subluxated vertebrae back toward the proper spinal relationship.
