Chiropractic Care for Families

To provide top-notch care for you and your family, our Charlottesville chiropractor uses highly specialized techniques. Headaches, migraines and other conditions can now be treated more effectively than ever before. Our family chiropractor and pregnancy chiropractor in family chiropractics Charlottesville have years of training and experience, and they utilize a range of state-of-the-art techniques, including:

The ArthroStim. The ArthroStim Instrument is a handheld machine that aids your chiropractor in performing adjustments. This powerful tool delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second, making it much stronger and faster than a typical single thrust administered by a chiropractor.  This results in more gentle and targeted adjustments and minimizes the snap, crackle or pop usually associated with more conventional chiropractic treatment of headaches, migraine and other conditions.

Gonstead and Palmer methods: These are two of the most effective and proven methods for chiropractic adjustments - they are called "manual adjustments." They make noises:)

Cox Technique
: The Cox Technique flexion-distraction and decompression is a well-researched, well-documented, and proven-effective technique for decompressing spinal nerves and treating low back pain. It's a gentle, non-surgical, low-force procedure that helps the spine heal properly - and keeps it as pain free as possible.

Drop Table.  The Drop Table is just like it sounds but you don't get dropped.  It's that table itself that drops approximately 1-2" during the adjustment.  It's another "non manipulative" adjustment where there are no sounds coming out of your back.

Craniosacral therapy: This technique involves applying extremely light and careful manual techniques to the craniosacral system. This releases excessive pressure on the nervous system, brain and spinal cord. When used to treat babies, craniosacral therapy can minimize the risk of developmental problems later in life.

Webster Technique: Our pregnancy chiropractor uses this technique, which is specifically designed for pregnant women to help balance their pelvic muscles and ligaments. Correct application of the Webster Technique increases the mother's comfort and allows the baby to settle into the best possible position for birth. For even more comfort, pregnant women can enjoy a pregnancy massage at our clinic.

Extremity adjusting/therapy: Though back pain, neck painheadaches and migraines are most commonly treated with spinal chiropractic adjustments, fixations and subluxated joints in your extremities can affect your health just as much. At our chiropractic clinic in Charlottesville, we utilize extremity adjusting and therapy to treat pain, fatigue, weakness, catches and stiffness in joints.

Manual Therapy, myofascial release technique, stretching, Swedish and pregnancy massage, pressure point therapy, as well as corrective Exercises, Orthotics, Nutrition, and Lifestyle Advice are all provided at Prax Family Chiropractic and massage.

Spinal and postural screenings: These screenings reveal important information about how your spine's alignment and your posture affect your health. We also offer spinal and postural screenings at shopping malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced overall. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "As I've now been under your care for over a year I look forward to each visit with you not only for the adjustment, but for the overall wellness feeling I know I will be walking out the door with."
