"I had a shoulder problem for several months due to an accident. My shoulder began to give me sharp pains when I would move my arm certain ways or tried to lift things as light as my brief case. This continued, and as the pain became greater, my range of motion decreased. Dr. Rosa listened carefully as I described what I was dealing with, and took the time to explain to me the problem and diagnosis. He began using techniques that provided relief almost immediately. I experienced steady improvement in my shoulder, and now have full range of motion back and am no longer dealing with any pain. I would highly recommend anyone on staff with the Rosa practice."

CHIROPRACTIC SCIENTIFICALLY EXPLAINED
A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND YOUR HEALTH
Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A chiropractor will diagnose, as well as help prevent, injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles, and bones.
While we will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs.
As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Rosa Family Chiropractic - Alexandria receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created.
