At NOVA spine & injury center, we specialize in providing safe, high quality care using traditional chiropractic techniques combined with cutting edge technology, physical therapy modalities, and advanced rehabilitation protocols. We are located in Fairfax, Virginia, across form the Fairfax County Government Center, in Fairfax Corner Shopping Center. Dr. David Shaffer, D.C. is a specialist in treating neuromusculoskeletal conditions, which include everything from lower back pain, lumbar spine disc injuries, neck pain, cervical spine disc injuries, thoracic spine disc injuries, shoulder and wrist injuries (rotator cuff, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel), headaches (tension, cervicogenic, and co-managing migraine), and finally injuries to the lower extremity (knee, hip, ankle, and foot). These injuries are treated using myofascial release (soft-tissue therapy) and other techniques (manipulation and exercises) to naturally reduce pain, speed healing, and enhance performance. These techniques were developed by treating professional and amateur athletes but work equally well when treating conditions brought on by work-related or auto accidents, chronic conditions, as well as everyday aches and pains. The ground-breaking medical technologies enlisted at NOVA spine & injury center are the following:
*Alpha-SPINAâ„¢, which uses IDD TherapyÂ® and state-of-the-art computer directed spinal-rehab system to deliver therapeutic treatment forces in a comfortable and soothing manner.
*TheraLASEâ„¢ therapeutic laser treatment used by professional and Olympic organizations to accelerate healing and reduces pain.
*Wristracâ„¢ a revolutionary, new non-surgical, patented treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and other wrist disorders.
