Your Arlington Chiropractor
Our annual Christmas in July was a huge success we donated to the New Hope Housing Inc. Mr. Jan has these nice words to share:
Thanks again from all of us for choosing New Hope Housing as the beneficiary of your July food drive. I've attached a couple pictures from yesterday to share however you like. I've posted them to our facebook and instagram pages this morning.
I stopped by our Safe Haven program in Arlington called Susan's Place on my way home to drop off about half of the food. Susan's Place is a home for six adults with either mental or physical disabilities who had been homeless and need 24/7 support. Many of them do not cook much or cook simple meals so the pasta, sauces, and cereals were all great supplies for them to have. While I was there, I spoke to another gentleman in the yard named Will. He lives in one of our apartments in Arlington and had been homeless for nearly 15 years when he moved into that apartment in 2015. He had an undiagnosed mental illness for years, which meant that he had also been untreated. He told me how life was going and how he liked to come by Susan's Place to do some work because he wanted to give back and it was a safe place to be. He currently can't work full-time so his income is low. He was grateful to get additional groceries and food yesterday and happy to get some of the cereal that is "normally too expensive for me to get" because it's healthier than the sugary kind.
Your gifts are already bringing smiles to people! thanks again for choosing us!

I just had my 3rd session with Kinsey and it was great. I went in 3 weeks ago with a very stiff and "frozen" shoulder due to not moving it a lot after my recent surgery. She focused on that area all 3 sessions along with providing me with some exercises to do at home. She stated that within those 3 sessions my shoulder has made dramatic changes in the right direction. She also stated that she has NEVER seen such a quick turn around. I give all the glory to Kinsey along with my 2 days a week Chiropractic care with Dr. Sindhi. I can't wait for Kinsey to tackle my other problem areas. :)

Thanks, Kinsey for a helpful massage today!
July 10, 2017
My massage was very productive. My lower back felt so tight-painfully tight. Kinsey found large knots in my gluts and starting working on them, which relieved some of my tension.
July 6, 2017
My massage therapist was Kinsey this time and she was great. She explained what is was she was doing, she even explained what it was my muscles were doing and why I had the symptoms I did. She also showed me some exercises I could do to loosen my muscles up in between my sessions with her. Very knowable of the body and great massage techniques. I will be booking with her again.
June 29, 2017
My lower back was quite tight from all the traveling and standing from last week and Kinsey was able to start releasing some of the tension.
June 28, 2017
Jun was amazing as always. I was very tense and stressed out before my massage, he had the massage table nice and warm. When I left I was very relaxed and glad that Dr. Sindhi was able to get me on his schedule for the day. Much needed!!
June 26, 2017
Love this place.

Although I realize that my muscles are still strained/pulled, the tension that accompanied the pain has gotten better with Kinsey's help. As always, she is very conscious of my pain and adjusts her pressure and position accordingly.
June 9, 2017
I went in with almost a locked back from long stressful hours of work and proposals and came out feeling better than I could of imagined. Thanks Again!
June 8, 2017
I had a great massage yesterday! Kim is clearly skilled and knowledgeable in massage as both an art and a science. I felt great when I left!
June 8, 2017
Hi Dr. Sindhi,
As always, I was pleased with my massage with Kinsey. She was very mindful of my pain, and applied the appropriate pressure in each area. Although I am still not feeling how I was prior to this issue, I feel better. My lower back certainly is as tight as it was following this minor injury.
Have a great day!
June 7, 2017
Always the best of everything with courtesy, kindness and professionalism.

I have phase one of scoliosis. Slight curve of center area of spine. The head is not centered with the rest of the body is one main symptom. Lower back pain started last fall and continuously got worse before going to The Holistic Point in January. After 6 months of Chiropractic care, massage therapy and spinal/structural integration therapy I feel like a whole new person. Using the doctor to help realign my body, message therapy to ease myself into the adjustments helped with reliving the pain. My posture was a big problem, and orthotics helped with starting my treatment on correcting my shoulders and head.
Spinal/Structural integration with Virginia helped with working out my lines in my body that were affected because of my spine. Virginia did a great job explaining how everything is connected throughout your body. I did an hour and half once a week with Virginia and I have seen results 6 months later. I no longer wake up in the morning with random days of back pain. I have been on extremely long flights, drives and activities and no longer worry that I will be affected for weeks after my activities.
Virginia uses material during her integration sessions that do not bother your skin. She will give you exercises to do at home to help speed up your progress. Virginia also tries to be far about scheduling and helping clients get appointments done.
June 1, 2017
Awesome! I left feeling less tense. Also, her technique of applying pressure to specifically tight areas allowed me to breath through discomfort and prevent from further tending.
May 26, 2017
Thank you Jessica!
May 18, 2017
Kinsey was always aware of the pressure she was exerting (which she was able to keep consistent throughout the session), and ensured that I was comfortable with the intensity. Additionally, she shared some physiological knowledge to help me understand my situation. I thoroughly enjoyed this massage and walked away feeling less tense!
May 15 ,2017
Always feel great after the treatments and massage. Congrats to Kinsey and Tim!

I began treatment with Virginia almost 2 months ago and have felt the greatest results of any other treatment I have ever received. With no pain or other medication, I have seen a decrease in soreness and acute pain throughout my body. The treatment not only focuses on the painful areas in my body but traces the pain back to the source for long term relief. I have seen increased elasticity in my muscles and tendons and have felt overall relief in my joints. In short, I have seen dramatic improvement in my body over a very short amount of time. In addition, Virginia has taught me about how my body works and what foods or exercise trigger and relieve pain. This treatment has allowed me to resume my daily workout routine and live pain free.
April 6, 2017
The session was well worth it!

I can't say how happy I am with Virginia's program for me I have gone down 2 dress sizes simply with her treatment, and general advise re diet and drinking water gone down 1/2 shoe size and generally feel more flexible and in better shape. My muscles are more like they should be and I am no longer living in pain. My ankles no longer look like knees they look like ankles and pretty nice ankles too. Virginia spends time explaining the purpose and intended results for her treatments and the proper way to do it. Always with humor and patience. I am not completely pain free yet because this is a process which requires time and effort and its working No more pain meds for me. I don't want to forget Sirki she is the best personal trainer; she is and makes me very conscious about how far to go when stretching and is patient in showing me exactly what she wants me to do during her sessions and at home. Her instructions are always encouraging and she explains what she is doing I would like to thank Virginia, Sirki and Dr V for helping me feel like a new woman.

I really felt great after my massage when I returned back to work my coworker said I looked so great after my massage and said please take to the place you went to.
February 18, 2017
The structural integration massage was fantastic, as usual. She is always so professional, very knowledgeable, and very thorough.
Thank you so much !!!!!!!!!!

Great strategic direction after discussing symptoms and how they are manifested.

I began chiropractic care because I had severe pain, burning, and tingling in my right leg. The pain went all the way to my toes. I was unable to walk, sit, or lie down without pain. Before trying chiropractic care, I tried advil, tylenol, and clenching my teeth. After starting care, many things have changed. Within two weeks, I could walk free of a cane, and I could walk more than 20 steps at a time. Within six weeks, I was nearly pain-free. After 2 months, I could do things that I had not enjoyed in several years! I had more sensation in my skin, my shoulder stopped aching, and I slept better. I feel so much healthier since beginning chiropractic care.
I began chiropractic care for extreme immobilizing upper back, neck and shoulder pain,and headaches. I tried to relieve them with pain relievers and stretching, etc. Since undergoing chiropractic care I have less jaw pain, headaches less often, better posture,decreased pain, a strengthened back and upper body, increased ﬂexibility. I am actively trying to learn to manage stressful situations to avoid tightening of neck, shoulder, and upper back muscles.

I am very active and somehow I hurt my lower back on the right side. I had to crawl around my house, before I decided to try chiropractic care. The military doctors gave me muscle relaxers and pain killers. Many changes have occurred in my life since undergoing chiropractic care. Immediately, I had relief. Between working the different muscle groups and resetting my skeletal make-up - it has been wonderful. I still come once a week, but am back to my normal very active life style. Truly amazing.
Pentagon City, VA
I began chiropractic care for chronic lower back pain. Before chiropractic care I tried stretching, and NSAIDS. Since beginning chiropractic care - it is amazing how great it is to feel "good" again without regular pain. Before beginning chiropractic care I would have to take ibuprofen on a regular basis to try to manage the pain, which never completely went away. Now I rarely take any OTC medications, and feel better all around. Chiropractic care has reminded me how great it is to be without chronic pain.
Falls Church, VA
I began chiropractic care because I was in an auto accident where I was T-bound on the driver side, my side. I am able to sleep through the night without pain, not feeling tired towards the end of the day due to pain. I’m able to sit, stand, and walk for long periods of time w/o intense pain. I am able to do a full spectrum of activities that I was unable to complete before care or at the very beginning of care. -LRS
I began chiropractic care because months of stubbornness led to the realization that I would cause serious damages if I continued to run with this foot pain. Chiropractic was not mu first option. Since undergoing Chiropractic care I’m not back to running in the manner I’m used to but I’m more aware of how my body’s “system” are inter-related and I’m rebuilding to top form in the right way.
I began chiropractic care because my wife recommended due to soreness on the back. Before trying chiropractic care I only used Heat & Ice. Since undergoing chiropractic care I’m much better looking and the pain has gone away. I’m really impressed. All my injuries were sport or recreation related. Being able to move and be active without pain is a blessing. I am very satisfied!
I began chiropractic care because of stiffness and pain in lower back, pain after exercise, sitting, driving and upon waking. Before chiropractic care all I did was massage and heat. Since undergoing chiropractic care I have relief, more mindful posture and more stretching commitment to strength training changes to ergonomics at work and home.
I began chiropractic care because I had pain in my right foot caused by a combination of two prior surgeries and general in activity. When I started, I had been limping for 6 + months. Before chiropractic care I was getting physical therapy and drugs with only partial improvement. Since undergoing chiropractic care I am now routine exercising at home. I can hike with my family, walk the dogs and do chores in the house without pain in my foot. I have confidence that that my efforts in combination w/ the care given here will last me a lifetime! It changed my outlook.
I began chiropractic care because I had constant spasms in neck/shoulders & very painful lower back. Before chiropractic care I tired stimulating massage @ $50-$60 an hour. Since undergoing chiropractic care first time I’ve gone for a long run in many many years without developing a spasm shoulder/ neck J. First time I awoke from a night’s sleep actually feeling refreshed in at least 5 years J. Much easier to maintain correct posture while sitting, standing, and walking. Used to be work!
I began chiropractic care because the small of my back was seizing up every morning to the point I had difficulty standing. Before chiropractic care I tried analgesics, RICE, and stretching, oh, and a lot of complaining. Since undergoing chiropractic care I’m still in phase 1 of recovery, 1 no longer experience sciatica and 1 can stand & sit for much longer periods of time. For example after a long day of work I had to attend an evening function where I stood for two hours. My back was a bit sore & tight but after a good sleep I woke up with NO back pain! Incredible!
I began chiropractic care because I was having pain in my back and shoulders which was causing me to have headaches all the time. Before chiropractic care I tired massages, pain medications (over the counter). Since I have started receiving chiropractic care I have not had any headaches at all! Also I was suffering from anxiety attacks off and on, maybe once every other week and those attacks have ceased. I am feeling 10 x better than day one.
I began chiropractic care because I had a major back and leg pain. Before chiropractic care I tried stretching and ibuprofen. Since undergoing chiropractic care today, I can feel my big toe for the first time in three months! Not a big deal to some but a big deal to me! Considering that ½ of the bottom part of my leg and foot were numb for 2 months! I’m a happy camper!
I began chiropractic care because I had constant pain in my lower back for over 5 years from a physically demand job. Before chiropractic care I took lots of aspirin, vitamins from joint care and tried some stomach strengthening exercising. Tried mind over mind. Denial. I talked with my family doctor and he recommended I see an Orthopedic surgeon. Just the name made me nervous. I work at Crystal City and had walked by Crystal Chiropractic office a thousand times. I was having dinner at Hamburger Hamlet, in pain, when I noticed the “open house” sign. I decided to stop in and see if they could help. Since undergoing chiropractic care my pain level has gone from a 10 to 1 and some days no pain at all. I can do simple task that I was unable to do before, like stand on one leg while getting dressed, bending over to pet my dog and sit for long periods of time at my computer. All simple everyday activities. I’m a happier person. Against the advice of friends and family, (who all seem to have a horror story, but have never gone themselves), I am glad I began treatment and consider it the best move I could have made!!!
I began chiropractic care because VA doctors couldn’t help me with my leg pain. Before chiropractic care I tired conventional diagnose: bone scan, MRI, and X-ray. Since undergoing chiropractic care I’m able to run and sleep without pain or discomfort, quicker recovery, more strength, energy, and require less rest. –CML
I began chiropractic care because I hurt my back doing dead lifts in a CrossFit class. Before chiropractic care I tried regular doctor care- vitamin M just wasn’t cutting it. Since undergoing chiropractic care I have been going to a chiropractor since I was 20 yrs old after a major car accident. I have learned to pay attention to my body and get chiropractic care when I have pains. My adjustments keep me on track to keep a steady & healthy lifestyle w/o having to be medicated.
I began chiropractic care because I was in so much pain after my accident while riding on metro. Before chiropractic care I tired pain medication. Since undergoing chiropractic care less pain, less tension in my muscles reduce burning and less pain in my daily activities. Being able to take back the way I use my muscles. Taking back all the positive energy that I had before the accident. Learning how to let my body heal. It took some time but with my doctor’s help the staff being so kind on every visit and being consistent with my treatment and choosing the right kind for me really helped me get back on my feet.
I began chiropractic care because I hurt my back as a result of working out. Before chiropractic care I tried seeing the doctor but they just gave me pain medication to mask pain. Since undergoing chiropractic care I am now in much better shape. I know what I need to do to prevent the same injury. I have no pain and it has improved my ability to do my job.
I began chiropractic care because I had terrible pain in the shoulders constant headaches and couldn’t sleep at night because of the pain in the neck. Before chiropractic care I tried pain relievers only. Also tried to work out and then sit in the jacuzzi, and relax the muscles. Since undergoing chiropractic care my life has dramatically improved. I do not have headaches any more, at least not as often. The pain in the neck and the shoulders has gone. My posture has noticeably improved as well. My body feels lighter and easier to carry J. All of this has happened in 3 months but the first result I felt after the very first adjustment. My recommendation to those who have problems with the back is to believe that they will get better and that in this office they are in good hands. I cannot explain and describe how happy I am!
I began chiropractic care because my parents tried it and benefited. They started weekly visits as a preventative maintenance program. When I first moved to Virginia I did not continue my maintenance visits. After 6 months I experience lower back pain. I visited crystal city chiropractic and within a few visits the pain was gone. I now visit every week or two to maintain. My posture has also improved. –RFC
