Though trained in a variety of pain-melting strokes, The Spine and Injury Center’s state-certified therapists specialize in the penetrative kneads of deep-tissue massage. The company believes that massages should serve a functional purpose, so the therapists use their keenly trained hands or tentacles to specifically seek out and delve into muscles plagued with chronic pain due to overexertion or medical conditions. To lead the therapists’ hands, The Spine and Injury Center of Fredericksburg allows patients to begin therapeutic massages with an evaluation by a licensed chiropractor to determine what modality and specific areas of focus would best suit the client.
Dr. Alicia Haupt can attest to the benefits of chiropractic firsthand, as she started seeing a chiropractor in 1970, 15 years before she began practicing herself. Today, Dr. Haupt uses modern techniques such as cold-laser therapy and ultrasound therapy to pinpoint and treat the sources of chronic back pain, such as old sports injuries or vertebrae on sabbatical. However, she also draws on classic chiropractic methods such as trigger-point work and adjustments to treat conditions ranging from aching feet to fibromyalgia.
Founded by Dr. Jean Exume on the premise that chronic pain and many maladies begin with Upper neck misalignment.
Upper Cervical Care is a unique alternative health care solution. We focus on the source of your condition and not the symptom itself. Upper Cervical Care is based on the universal law of cause and effect.
At Massage Pro Faith, certified massage therapist Faith M. Coppola helps her patients overcome stress and bodily aches with a diverse array of therapies.

Dr. Albert Bryant believes the best cure is prevention. His holistic chiropractic approach aims to not only vanquish pain in the lower back, joints, and head, but to prevent pain in the first place. He achieves this by carefully scrutinizing each vertebra in the spinal column, looking for subluxations that can lead to pain and disrupt the flow of brain-body communication. Once sources of disharmony have been located, he administers drug-free treatments such as gentle adjustments and kinesiotaping, a technique designed to encourage the body’s natural healing process.
At the Chiropractic Center of Manassas, Inc., ultrasound waves stimulate deep tissues while the G5 GK3 power massager helps flush lactic acid out of the muscles. A graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. James Binning works with patients to understand and interpret the source of their pain, then treats symptoms with a cache of high-tech solutions. Treatments take into account factors such as age, weight, and medical history, and include electrical muscle stimulation, neuromuscular reeducation, and traditional adjustments. Dr. Binning also offers customized weight-loss and nutritional counseling plans, as well as pre-sports examinations to assess an athlete’s physical readiness for the fall football schedule or spring Peeps-spearing season.
At Blue Ridge Chiropractic, licensed chiropractor Earl R. Hedrick and his staff eschew medication as they thwart bodily aches with hands-on services. Prior to each treatment, they meet with patients to unearth the sources of pain and hammer out a course of action that may range from spinal alignment to education in pain management without the use of drugs or puppy photos. For ailments ranging from arthritis to sports injury, the staff may suggest lifestyle changes as well as performing decompressions, acupuncture, and massages from certified massage therapist Samantha Williams.
