A Chiropractor is a health care professional specializing in disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system as well as the nervous system. Chiropractors treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica, as well as pain in joints of the arms and legs, headaches and other conditions affecting overall health and well-being. They practice a drug free approach that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.

Subluxations of the spine are common causes of neck pain, back pain and sciatica. Subluxations of the spine are misalignments of your vertebrae which in turn can affect discs, nerves and ligaments. A subluxation of the neck for instance, can not only result in severe headaches, but be responsible for lower back pain, face, arm, elbow, shoulder pain, numbness and more! There are many reasons for subluxations of the spine: poor posture, heavy lifting, the aging process, sports, or car accidents.

About Us

Chiropractor Mark Poehlman, D.C.

Chiropractor Catonsville MD Mark PoehlmanDr. Mark was pursuing a baseball career in his early twenties when he began to experience acute lower back pain. He went to his primary care doctor, a neurologist, massage therapist and an acupuncturist without any success. Finally, he visited a chiropractor and was soon cured. It was this experience that motivated him to pursue a career in Chiropractic to help heal others.

After graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, he went on to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Northwestern Chiropractic College in Minneapolis in 1986. Dedicated to healing others, Dr. Mark is committed to advancing his knowledge of Chiropractic and related studies through post graduate seminars on such subjects as low back injuries, and whiplash.

It was Dr. Mark’s commitment to the overall wellness of his patients that was the driving force to continue his studies in Designed Clinical Nutrition. As a Chiropractor, he worked tirelessly with his patients to eliminate pain but wanted to help treat the source of the pain not only from chiropractic issues but from many other quality of life health problems.

He furthered his studies at Ulan Nutrition Systems Inc. under the direction of Dr. Freddie Ulan. The Advanced Clinical Training he received in the evaluation of nutrition is called Nutrition Response Testing (NRT). It allows Dr. Mark to help patients achieve overall wellness through discovery of food sensitivities, allergies, and deficiencies.

Dr. Mark gives lectures to local groups on low back pain, neck pain, non-surgical disc repair as well as managing chronic health conditions through good nutrition. He has been recognized as an expert witness by many of the area attorneys in the area of motor vehicle accidents and back injuries.

Dr. Poehlman, his wife and three children reside in Ellicott City. An avid golfer, he and his family enjoy the culture and the recreational activities the region provides.

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 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 Barrett Family Chiropractic 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.
