Mechanicsville, Virginia — There are many different associations that are concerned with health and wellness. I am a member of The Society Of Chiropractic Orthospinology and you can find out more about The Society Of Chiropractic Orthospinology by visiting their website.

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is a national agency that is concerned with scientific research on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). CAM describes a branch of alternative health care that some people might not consider or define as ‘conventional medicine.’

Chiropractic care, massage, and acupuncture are all examples of health practices that can fall under the umbrella of CAM and are practiced in VA.

According to the mission statement of NCCAM their three focuses of concern are to explore CAM healing practices in the context of rigorous science, train CAM researchers, and to provide authoritative information to both professionals and the public.

The NCCAM’s focus in regards to VA chiropractic care mirrors these three goals. The agency looks at the overall effectiveness of chiropractic methods, such as spinal manipulations, for back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, etc. They also look at getting more chiropractor’s involved in research, and study the responses and satisfaction levels of people who have received chiropractic care.

We are Stover Chiropractic, P.C. and can perform Grostic technique, which is also known as orthospinology.   This procedure, based on the teachings of Dr. John F. Grostic, involves the correction of the Occipito-Atlanto-Axial misalignment, its influence on the central nervous system and its effect on body balance and integrity. Since its inception over 60 years ago, this upper cervical procedure has helped millions of people overcome countless health problems.  We are concerned with your health and healing.
