Our goal at Bodnar Chiropractic Center in Alexandria, VA is to put health back into health care. We do this, not by treating the disease, but by treating the person as a whole. We look for the cause of a symptom, not the effect, so we can remove interference and let the body function as it was designed. We accomplish this by not covering up effects (pain) with drugs or surgery, as much of modern medicine does. Instead, we strive to provide a holistic approach to health and wellness in a friendly and professional atmosphere while using the most up to date and effective methods in the chiropractic profession.
In addition to chiropractic care we offer other holistic pain management and healing techniques in Alexandria such as acupuncture, massage therapy, herbal medicine, and physical therapy. We also offer nutritional counseling and corrective stretching and strengthening exercises as part of your complete wellness plan.

We can help you with numerous pain symptoms or problems such as auto accident injuries, muscular problems, work injuries, migraines or headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, sports injuries, and chronic pain. Unlike many medical doctors, our expert Alexandria VA chiropractors Dr. Brian Bodnar and Dr. Angelica Yi will take a close look at your personal health history as well as give you a comprehensive physical examination to determine the root cause of your pain.
The health professionals at our Alexandria Chiropractic Center can also help you with general wellness symptoms and conditions such as chronic fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, numbness or tingling, stress management and teeth grinding or TMJ. That is only the beginning of the list, so if you're not sure that we can help, please call 703-721-0500 for more information!
Dr. Brian Bodnar has been serving the chiropractic and wellness needs of Alexandria, VA since 1997. We have two chiropractors on staff as well as an acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, nutritional health coach and a certified massage therapist.
Our Alexandria office features state of the art technology, such as computerized chiropractic adjustments for patients who prefer an adjustment without the traditional "pop" of the joint. The computer features on the spot feedback of joint range of motion and it is safe for almost all patients including those with osteoporosis.
We also offer computerized diagnostics such as surface EMG to give us objective findings during physical exams, which can be traced and compared during treatment re-evaluations to determine a patient's progress. This type of testing also provides objective data on muscle imbalances or asymmetries. We feature onsite x-ray facilities and results can be digitally e-mailed to patients or another medical facility. Various forms of active and passive spinal decompression can be implemented when deemed helpful or necessary. Physical therapy modalities, such as interferential muscle stimulation, ultrasound, combo therapy, heat, ice, and pelvic blocking are implemented on a case by case basis.
