Chiropractor Woodbridge VA, L3 vertebra
Next up in our ongoing series about each of the bones in your spine is the L3 vertebra. The third bone down in your lumbar, or lower back area, the L3 is the central bone in this region.

Success Stories from Our Patients

  • Improved Health

    When I first came to Dr. C’s office, I had tension in my upper back that moved to the lower part of my skull. After receiving chiropractic care for one month, that tension was relieved. I was also very surprised when I got a cold that it lasted only a week. During the fall allergy season I usually have to battle off bronchitis or pneumonia since I have asthma.
