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.

Dr Phil and his staff are very friendly and helpful. I was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago and called in on a Saturday morning, having severe back pain and neck pain. They got me in that day, and I was so thankful.
After suffering from lower back problems and finally searching for good doctors, it was through google that I found this facility with great reviews now I want to thank Dr. Golinsky and his AMAZING Team for taking such good care of me.
Dr. Phil has been so good to me. I have never met a doctor who cared more about his patient then any other doctor i've EVER met. The fact that I can talk to him freely without feeling uncomfortable really says something.
