Services We Provide


Manipulative Care

We provide advanced spinal treatment utilizing various "state of the art" proven chiropractic techniques. Since patients are different we offer many different types of manipulation. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer treatment methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Our manipulative treatment methods include Cox Distraction, Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson and the Impulse Adjusting Instrument.

Acupuncture

Dr Allen is a board certified Fellow in the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture as well as licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine. We offer evidenced based medical acupuncture services that utilizes either needle or laser. Additionally we have the only computerized 2017 AcuGraph equipment in the region. The AcuGraph is a state of the art electrodermal measuring device that reliably confirms acupoints and meridians and documents your response to treatment. Common conditions treated by acupuncture include acute and chronic pain, neuropathy, nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy/radiation, gout, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, hot flashes and much more.

Therapeutic Modalities

Many types of pain relieving and therapeutic modalities are available at our office. These include galvanic and interferential (acute and chronic pain control as well as fluid exchange), EMS (muscle spasm reduction), RMS (rehab and muscle strengthening), TENS (portable pain control), ultrasound (muscle spasm, edema reduction and mild pain control), hydroculator, cryotherapy, cervical traction and intersegmental spinal traction. Additionally, when appropriate, McKenzie and other exercise protocols are utilized.

Laser

The most modern, FDA approved, superpulsed GaAs 910nm Class 3B laser available. This laser excels at treating plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, shoulder pain as well sprains and strains. It also provides decreased pain levels, reduced inflammation, accelerated soft tissue and bone healing, repair and enhanced nerve regeneration as well as increased function. This is the same type laser used by many professional athletic teams and the US Olympic Training Center.

Dry Needling

 Is a modern, medically validated procedure for the treatment of resistant acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Dry needling involves placing a very thin solid filament needle (the same used in acupuncture) without medication into a muscular trigger point or spastic muscle. This procedure causes a mechanical disruption of the dysfunctional muscle resulting in a resolution of pain. Most describe the procedure as virtually painless and notice improvement within 24 hours

Lab

Urinalysis performed on premises. Other lab tests (blood) are processed by LabCorp or Medtox. Results are usually available the next day. We always provide you with a copy of your lab findings.

Radiology

Our x-ray facilities provide modern digital technology. This means better quality images that are processed and viewed on a computer with little to no retakes. Written reports are available within 1 day.

Rehab Programs

After your acute care treatment is complete, we offer extensive physical testing to determine specifically what can be done in the future to decrease the chances of your problem returning.
