We take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic and rehabilitative care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Washington office.

Chiropractic Care :
The chiropractic adjustment is the foundation of your care in our office. Dr. Bowling is a self-confessed "seminar addict," and after over 28 years in practice, still attends an average of one postgraduate educational program around the country every month. This commitment to excellence allows him to utilize advanced, "state of the art" spinal correction techniques, ranging from the most gentle and "light force" procedures to the more aggressive ones, depending on what the individual patient requests or the specific case requires. Never in the history of chiropractic have we had the technology, the expertise, the wide variety of options, or the safety and consistency of results that we currently have available to our patients. It is truly an exciting time in chiropractic, for doctors, staff and patients alike!

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression :
Spinal decompression, known in our office as the "stretcher" tables, has allowed us to help many patients with bulging or herniated discs (confirmed by MRI), sciatica, and chronic degenerative disc disease. The computerized decompression units gently "pull the vertebrae apart," holding them there for half a minute or so, then letting them go back together. Utilizing this "pull-relax-pull-relax" process for only a few minutes at a time has benefited many people who could not find help through any other therapy. Many had been previously advised to have back surgery.


Apollo_PT_Holster.JPGCold Laser:
Cold laser therapy is the use of laser energy to produce therapeutic effects,
which include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased inflammation.  Cold lasers have been the subject of over 3,000 research studies, and have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of many pain syndromes, including carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fascitis, peripheral neuropathy, shingles, Bell’s palsy, TMJ problems, and many more.

Intersegmental Traction :
Our intersegmental traction units, affectionately known by the patients as the "roller" tables, gently but firmly separate the vertebrae of the spine, providing many benefits to the patient in the process. This procedure creates mobility, improves metabolism, relieves congestion, increases blood circulation, stimulates specific nerve centers, breaks up fixation of spinal segments, and relieves muscle contractures and tense ligaments and strengthens them. This is one of the most popular modalities in our office.

Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Exercises:
Combining chiropractic adjustments with rehabilitative exercise training has allowed us to take the care of our patients to an entirely new level, achieving results that neither procedure could provide by itself. We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problems. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice:
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to keep from aggravating their particular health challenges. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each individual is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between doctor, staff and patient.

Nutritional Counselingand Supplements:
Many people don't realized that much of the pain and many of the illnesses and complaints that plague mankind are related to chronic inflammation resulting from incorrect food choices and lack of knowledge about nutrition. In addition, even many of the "healthy" foods we eat are grown in depleted soil, harvested too early, or contaminated by chemicals. We can provide you with specific recommendations on healthy food choices and nutritional supplements to enhance your return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? We can design a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness?

If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
