Acupuncture, Dry Needling, & Cupping
Dr. Alvarado specializes in other therapies including acupuncture, dry needling, and cupping.
Acupuncture involves inserting needles into the human body in order to balance energy and relieve pain symptoms in areas such as the shoulder or lower back. It is based off of Chinese medicine. It’s aim is to release endorphins and affect the nervous system.
Dry Needling is another technique that uses needles, but differs from acupuncture. It stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues with filiform needles. It’s goal is to assist in releasing knots that may form in your back.
Cupping is another ancient technique used in therapy. Cups are placed on specific areas of your body to create suction. It helps relieves pain, inflammation, blood flow, and has a similar effect to a deep tissue massage.
Auto Accident Injury
Our Arlington chiropractic team is skilled in treating auto accident injuries. Chiropractic care is a proven treatment for whiplash and other similar injuries sustained in car accidents. Whiplash symptoms include back pain, neck pain, migraines/headaches, and stiff or painful movements. If you’ve been in an auto accident in Arlington, schedule a consultation with Dr. Alvarado and our local team. Additionally, if you were not at fault in the accident, your appointment will be at no cost to you, just bring your auto accident claim number.
Chiropractic Care utilizes manual techniques to correct misalignments in the spine. It is one of the most effective treatments for back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, scoliosis, headaches and migraines. There are many benefits to chiropractic care such as reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, expedite healing, prevent injuries, and prevent neuromuscular disorders. Dr. Joshua Alvarado is the lead chiropractor in our Arlington chiropractic clinic and he creates specialized treatment plans based on his patients’ needs so they can experience natural healing.
At our Arlington RxWellness center we want to give our patients the best treatment so that they can get pain relief from their symptoms. We have highly skilled massage therapists on our team who do deep tissue, and trigger point massage which usually lasts between 5-8 minutes before receiving a chiropractic adjustment. The purpose of receiving massage therapy before the chiropractic adjustment is to loosen tight muscles, allowing easier chiropractic muscles. It reduces the inflammation around your spine and other problem areas.
We don’t mean to brag about our outstanding service and highly-skilled clinicians, but our former and current clients sure do! Read on to hear about some amazing patient results, and how our office does its best to ensure a pleasant experience at RxWellness Spine & Health.
RxWellness Spine & Health is absolutely amazing and best! Today was my first visit to the clinic and I was more than impressed. The staff was welcoming and I was easily able to schedule an appointment for an adjustment and massage. Dr. Alvarado and Jessica were extremely knowledgeable and worked efficiently and accurately to help provide the most relief possible for my chronic low back pain. I experienced immediate relief following my treatment. I HIGHLY recommend this clinic! Looking forward to going back soon.
Rx Wellness is a top notch business! I have been seeing Dr. Josh for years and I have always received the best treatment and health advice. He is hands down the best doctor in town and always has me feeling better when I walk out than I did when I walked in. Ali is always accommodating to my needs to getting me in to see doc at my convenience. She does a phenomenal job of consistently managing all operational systems. It is because of her efforts that the business runs optimally. I would recommend Rx Wellness.
Dr. Josh and his team are the best! I wasn't a big fan of chiropractors before coming to Dr. Josh, as I had a rather blah experience the first time I went to one. I heard so many great things about this team via word of mouth that I decided to give them a try. I've been seeing Dr. Josh off and on for about a year now, and I will continue to be a regular. I always leave feeling much better and see significant improvement in my physical performance during my workouts & daily activities. Ali is the best at getting you into appointments.
I just love Dr. Josh and Ali! I have been going to him the past year, and he has really helped me overall with my minor Scoliosis and keeping me pain-free since I am an athlete and compete in physique competitions. I put a lot of stress on my body from Lifting weights and extreme training. I only trust Dr. Josh, and Ali always makes everyone feel so welcome when they come in! They truly care about their patients, and you can tell the moment you walk through the door how passionate they are about what they do! I am excited !
Dr Josh has helped me back from a few injuries as well as preventative care, something that can be seriously missed with active individuals. Each time I see Dr. Josh my body feels better and I walk away with more knowledge on how to keep it that way. Their team (MVP Ali included) are flexible, understanding and professionally more than any other specialist I have worked within this area. I recommend to people I work with and people I coach, all with different needs - it's the first name that always comes to mind!
As a long-distance runner, I have been seeing Dr. Josh for roughly the past 3 years. Dr. Josh's care and dedication to his craft are truly one of a kind. I canno t begin to count the number to times he has gotten me through an injury or just offered advice on what shoes to wear, what running posture to take, or countless other questions I have had to keep me running healthy. He truly cares about his patients and is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure they have success in their endeavors. I would highly recommend.
