Bodnar Chiropractic Center of Alexandria, Virginia Announces Significant Curve Rehabilitation Milestone with Diagnosis and Treatment of 3,000th Patient

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) July 18, 2014

Bodnar Chiropractic Center, the leading provider of expert chiropractic care, massage therapy and acupuncture treatment in the greater Washington, DC metro area, has marked a new clinical milestone in curve rehabilitation, treating 3,000 patients for a range of disorders involving abnormal curvature of the spine.

According to Alexandria chiropractor Dr. Brian Bodnar, “Losing the proper curvature in the spine--called lordosis--has a number of unhealthy consequences over time, including disc degeneration and possible disc herniations. When a spinal disc degenerates, there is less physical space between adjacent vertebrae. At the extreme, this can lead to bone-on-bone friction and osteoporosis. Herniated discs often cause neck pain, arm pain or numbness, lower back pain, or leg numbness. A spine that loses its normal curve can also develop bone spurs, which grow to compensate for the lack of support to the spinal structure.”

For patients suffering from a loss of the normal curve, rehabilitation aims to re-establish this curve in order to improve posture, decompress the spine, and slow or stop the progress of disc degeneration. Dr. Bodnar describes his team’s approach as collaborative and comprehensive. “At Bodnar Chiropractic Center, we incorporate various forms of traction and spinal molding blocks to re-establish the proper curve. But we also pay special attention to the patient’s everyday lifestyle, including activities at home as well as workplace ergonomics. Long periods of time in front of the computer and poor posture are two of the biggest contributors to curvature problems, and we have to work hard to ensure that we’re addressing root causes like these and not just the symptom. This means our approach to treatment has to be broader so that what’s happening outside the office is congruent with what we’re trying to achieve with the rehabilitation. Otherwise, we’re actually working against ourselves.”

The healthcare professionals at Bodnar Chiropractic Clinic design a treatment plan for each patient based on the degree of curve loss evident in X-rays. Depending on the severity of the problem and a patient’s compliance with lifestyle changes and at-home corrective exercises, rehabilitation time can vary from three months to a year. Once the spine has been successfully remodeled, Dr. Bodnar typically recommends monthly or quarterly follow-up visits for up to a year to ensure stability.

While Dr. Bodnar and his team have been providing curve rehabilitation for over ten years, the protocol and technologies they use in the process have evolved over time. “In just the past year, we started implementing some new procedures, adding CBP (Chiropractic BioPhysics Technique) as well as Denneroll cervical and thoracic wedges to our approach. The changes are delivering even better results and have been received very well by our patients.”
