Back pain is an all too common complaint among Americans across the workforce. It doesn’t matter if you have a desk job or are working in a physical labor job like construction. So just how many Americans suffer from back pain? Well according to the Health Policy Institute, 65 million Americans have recently complained about back pain, and 16 million (8%) experience back pain as chronic condition. Many people even go so far as to receive surgery in hope of relieving chronic back pain. Don’t panic though, because there are many ways to treat back pain naturally before considering surgery. But exactly who do you see to treat your back pain? For those who are living in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area we would love for you to check out RxWellness Spine & Health, a chiropractor in Arlington, VA.
Chiropractors are doctors who specialize in treating the spine through natural therapies including manual spinal adjustments. Studies revealed that people with back pain who seek chiropractic treatment are more satisfied with their results than going to a general practitioner. However, this should not be surprising since general practitioners are not spinal experts and pain medication is often prescribed. Pain medication only masks the symptoms and do not reveal the underlying problem.
We highly suggest that if you are experiencing back pain to seek out a chiropractic clinic near you if you don’t live in our region.
RxWellness Spine & Health is a Chiropractor in Arlington, VA
We are the top rated chiropractor in Arlington, VA. RxWellness headquarters was first established in Herndon, VA 25 years ago.

To further clarify, chiropractic care is when a chiropractor manipulates and adjusts the spine, joints, and extremities in order to restore balance to the body. Chiropractic can increase blood and oxygen flow to all internal systems. It is the primary way to treat back pain and spinal conditions such as scoliosis and whiplash. The best part? It is completely natural. Chiropractic does not use drugs or surgery. It is the first line of defense to protect not only your spine, but your health as a whole.
Our chiropractor in Arlington, VA is certified in dry needling. Dry needling is another natural therapy that involves sticking thin needles into soft tissue to release tension built up in your trigger points. It increases blood flow and reduces pain. Though it may sound intimidating for some, we assure you it is not a painful procedure and can bring great relief.
Ever seen a top athlete walking around with reddish/purple circle marks on their body? Those marks are the after effect of cupping. Cupping is when a heated glass is applied on the skin to stimulate blood flow through suction. It helps with pain, inflammation, and produces similar results to a deep tissue massage.
At RxWellness Spine & Health, we believe in utilizing massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care to provide our patients with the best results. We have several massage therapists on staff to preform 10 minute deep tissue massage to relieve muscular and soft tissue tension around the spine.
We promote health and wellness across all of our clinics. Our chiropractor in Arlington, VA may give you some exercise tips to help prevent pain or injury to your spine, or even give some nutritional advice.
