Chiropractors realign your spine to relieve pressure on your nerves, muscles, and discs. An aligned spine enables the nerves exiting the spinal column to clearly communicate with all your organs and tissues. When your nerves communicate and are not stressed, the symptoms of many health conditions can improve.

Conditions that usually respond well to chiropractic care include:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Slipped or bulging disc conditions
  • Facial pain/TMJ
  • Peripheral neuropathy pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sciatica pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Vertigo/dizziness
  • Fibromyalgia pain
  • And more!

When spinal bones move from their correct position, they can irritate nearby nerves and disrupt brain-body communication, causing pain and/or weakness in different parts of your body and setting the stage for ill health. By seeing chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA for adjustments, you can relieve pain and have a better quality of life.

Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. It includes your brain, spinal cord, and all your nerves. Because of how important your nervous system is, eight bones protect your brain and 24 moving bones cover your spinal cord. Nerve messages leave your brain and travel down your spinal cord and out to every cell and tissue of your body. Returning messages either confirm that everything is working properly or signal that something needs attention, allowing the body to respond appropriately.

As the chiropractors Charlottesville, VA relies on, we’re dedicated to the health of your nervous system. Call us today to schedule an appointment for chiropractic care!

There are many different techniques to perform a chiropractic adjustment. At our office, Dr. Lynch uses an Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic adjusting tool for your atlas/axis adjustments (a specific upper cervical treatment) and an Erchonia adjusting instrument for full spine and extremity adjustments. Dr. Lynch also uses the Erchonia adjusting instrument to realign bulging and slipped discs. All alignments are made within the body’s normal range of motion with instruments. There is never any twisting, cracking, or popping. After our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA are finished, most people say the treatment feels great!

It depends on your needs, but ongoing chiropractic treatment is beneficial for anyone’s health. A properly aligned spine helps reduce stress, maintains joint function, boosts your immune system, and prevents early-onset osteoarthritis.

Only 10% of your nerves carry pain signals. Often subluxations (a bone that is out of its proper position that irritates a nearby nerve) are present without pain. When spinal bones move from their correct position, they can disrupt brain-body communication and cause weakness in different parts of your body.

It is important to have your spine periodically checked for subluxations to make sure your nervous system is free of uninterrupted brain-body messaging to stay healthy. By coming to our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA for ongoing treatment, we can help ensure that your nervous system is communicating with your body properly.

The moving bones of your spinal column cover your spinal cord. When a spinal bone moves out of its proper position, the bone can irritate nearby nerves and cause nerve stress. This is known as a vertebral subluxation. A subluxation can interfere with your nervous system and can compromise brain-body communications, which negatively impacts your health.

Whiplash injury, trauma, repetitive stress, sports injuries, poor nutrition, environmental toxins, drugs, alcohol, smoking, and emotional stress can cause subluxations. Contact the chiropractors Charlottesville, VA depends on today if you need a subluxation corrected.

Many of our patients are referred to us by their family and friends. However, it is always good to read patient reviews of chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA. Many of our patients come to us because we use instruments to make our spinal corrections. All alignments are made in the body’s normal range of motion without any twisting, popping, or cracking. Contact us today to learn more about why we are a great choice for your chiropractic needs!

Chiropractic treatment is effective, non-invasive, and extremely safe. Chiropractic care is designed to normalize the nervous system so that the brain can more effectively communicate with various parts of a person’s body, allowing the body to rebuild and heal.

Chiropractic treatment is great and beneficial to people of all ages. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractors treat more than 35 million Americans (adults and children alike) every year. The birthing process, trauma and falls while learning to walk or ride a bike, and injuries when performing youth sports can cause spinal misalignments in kids. Make an appointment today with the chiropractors Charlottesville, VA trusts for you and your children to experience these benefits!

No, you do not need a referral. You can just call and schedule an appointment with our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA.

Dr. Lynch and his staff have been great to work with for several years. My vertebrae adjustments are gentle and have allowed me the freedom to continue the activities I love. In addition, he listens to his patients and has a holistic approach to one's health.

I cannot say enough about the help I’ve been provided by Dr. Lynch, Terry, and Lisa. I started my journey with them struggling with constant vertigo/vestibular problems, achiness, fatigue, brain fog, sensitivity to light and sound, inflammation, anxiety, back and hip pain…some of these struggles I’ve had for 20+ years. I thought I had to live that way, but sought Dr. Lynch with a small glimmer of hope. Dr. Lynch took the time to thoroughly go over my X-rays and explained the visible issues I had, some dating back 25+ years. From the very first adjustment, I felt immediate relief of symptoms I’d had for so long, I didn’t know how life was without them. I woke up the next day and couldn’t believe that nearly all of my symptoms were completely gone! Dr. Lynch pinpointed some health issues I didn’t know were causing problems and has worked consistently (along with Terry), using a detailed plan of action, to help relieve so many of my symptoms by getting to the root problems. He has even helped me sort out some diet issues that were causing inflammation, to get me to feeling my best! They are kind, listen, never rush me, and I am 100% positive that they actually care and WANT me to feel better (not keep me sick)! I will never view healthcare the same after the type of care and empowering knowledge I’ve received at Lynch Chiropractic. I tell everyone I can about them and highly recommend their practice to everyone who is seeking answers, a truly holistic approach, and the most excellent care.

I have been seeing Dr. Lynch for several months for pain in my shoulder and arm. After an initial consultation, he has seen me routinely ever since then and his treatments have considerably eased my pain. I can move my arm and shoulder without discomfort because of his dedication and gentle care. In addition, he is a great teacher, offering advice on exercise and diet. His staff has taught me various ways to help other chronic conditions. They have much to offer anyone who is interested in moving toward a more holistic lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Lynch and his caring staff.
