Chiropractic Care - McLean Virginia, 22101


Chiropractic Overview 


Here in McLean VA at Nova Alternative Medicine  we find that most people seek chiropractic care because of back and neck pain, but back and neck pain could just be the tip of the iceberg. The pain that you feel could mean that inflamed spinal joints are putting pressure on nerves. Pressure on nerves may cause other ailments such as allergies, PMS, headaches, sleep and fatigue problems, digestive or weight problems, and more. Other common treatments include sports injuries, auto accident and work injuries.



Before we can treat you, we must first evaluate what treatment you will need. After a series of questions about your pain or condition, Dr Sanford will perform several tests involving reflexes, flexion, posture, and sometimes, x-ray or MRI. The doctor will look for the cause of your pain, in addition to any undetected nerve damage. He will also perform a specialized scan to detect spinal joint dysfunction. It sounds like a lot, but we prefer to be through, so please plan on an hour or more for your first visit.



Our main job is to make adjustments to your spine. Depending on the injury or ailment, these adjustments can help improve range of motion, flexibility, comfort, and overall wellness. We use a variety of adjustment methods, depending on what your body best responds to. One of the methods is called Multiple Impulse Therapy. It will gently and effectively adjust the spine without the twisting and cracking that some people are concerned about.


Care Methods

We utilize many methods to treat our patients. All of them are safe, natural, and non-invasive. Chiropractic care usually consists of a series of adjustments, which are made by your licensed chiropractor. However, Dr Sanford is also well versed with a number of soft tissue techniques, traction protocols, and exercise rehabilitation. In addition to spinal correction, the Foundation for Wellness also offers weight loss and detox programs, hormonal balancing, class 4 laser, electrical stimulation, nutritional and orthopedic supplies.


Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care is ideal for patients who wish to treat the cause of their pain in a safe and natural way. Chiropractic does not rely on the use of drugs to treat the symptoms of an issue; rather, the treatment focuses on the source of the issue. In chiropractic, patients take an active role in their healing through healthy lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise.
