Every year, the residents of Prince William County are polled by InsideNoVa.com to find their top choices in business and other categories all over the area. More than 46,000 thousand votes came back, naming everything from the best nail salon to top golf instructor. Medical practices were also voted on, and ACT Wellness’ Dr. Carmelo Caratozzolo was named Best Alternative Medicine Provider in 2015.
With an ongoing mission to provide the highest quality care to all patients, ACT Wellness offers a myriad of treatments and services, from traditional and modern chiropractic to bio-nutrition regimens. Here are just a few of our award-winning treatments:
Traditional Chiropractic Care
When you feel a pain in your neck, back or any of your joints, a chiropractor can help alleviate the pain. More often than not, your pain is caused by a subluxation, or misalignment, of the spine. This can manifest as back or neck pain, but there are also other symptoms. Headaches, tingling or “pins and needles” and other unusual sensations are often caused by subluxations, as misalignments frequently cause a disruption in nerve communication.
Dr. Caratozzolo is a Chiropractic Sports Physician who can realign your spine and ease your discomfort. This is especially beneficial for athletes, as the constant impact of running and colliding with other players can cause subluxations. In addition musculoskeletal complaints can be caused by a lack of communication between the nerves, which affects the immune and other systems. Before buying hundreds of dollars’ worth of medicine, seek chiropractic care.
Advances in Technology
While deep tissue massages and spine realignments can take care of many different conditions, there are some cases in which we use more modern technology. One such method is pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, or PEMF. While this may sound intimidating, it is one of the most beneficial therapies available. By delivering safe, painless magnetic pulses to your body, cells are “instructed” to regenerate, which boosts the healing process.
Another newer treatment is called cold laser therapy. This treatment utilizes specific frequencies of light that penetrate into the deep tissue, which causes your body to “jumpstart” the healing process. It is painless and, when coupled with PEMF, can greatly reduce your downtime due to an injury.
ACT Wellness also offers bio-nutrition programs. Many people know they should be taking vitamins, but may not know exactly which ones to take. We will run a blood test to determine if you have any nutrient deficiencies, then establish a diet and vitamin regimen to amend them.
These are only a few of the services we offer. ACT Wellness is interested in making sure you always feel your best, and our wide range of services are focused on doing just that. When you walk out of our doors, we want you to feel better than you ever have.
