Doug  Nagel, Doctor of Chiropractic 

At Back2Life, our highly-specialized therapies allow us to help everyone - those suffering with chronic pain, as well as those recovering from a recent injury or surgery.   Our holistic approach is highly successful, as we focus on finding the source of the problem, not just fixing the obvious.  When we see a patient, we do our best to understand what the patient is dealing with on a daily basis and how this affects treatment.  For example, for someone with more free time might be able apply an out of office exercise program, while someone with a busier schedule may not.  The most successful chiropractic treatment includes knowing the challenges the patient faces at home or on the job and even any emotional upset or stress the patient is dealing with.

If you want to know learn more about how this approach to chiropractic and healing can help you, call our office at 571.299.4847 and schedule your FREE NEW PATIENT  consultation and examination.

About Us

Back2Life   |  Dr. Doug Nagel, Chiropractor, Herndon, VA

How We Treat

At Back2Life, our cornerstone is a  MULTIMODAL  TREATMENT APPROACH - not spine specific.   This whole body-approach is intended to address musculoskeletal or nervous system disorders at their core and is custom tailored to each patient.  Along with spinal adjustments, we use soft tissue techniques to fully restore normal functional abilities and biomechanics.  We strive to provide the latest technological and holistic treatments and focus on the unique needs of each patient to ensure they can enjoy an improved quality of life going forward.

While we very much believe in preventative care, we also understand that a patient is unlikely to seek medical help unless a specific condition or symptom is present.  Whether our patients are here for preventative measures or because of an acute condition, this multimodal approach  is necessary to keep all components of the body working harmoniously.

Each patient's multimodal treatment regimen begins with a comprehensive consultation and examination.   Dr. Nagel has remarkable diagnostic skills, which aids him to find the root of most symptoms or trouble areas.  Depending upon the nature of the symptoms, the initial examination may include a review of imaging studies provided by the patient.  In any case, Dr. Nagel will identify what is causing the ailment, allowing us to proceed with treatment.  In some rare cases, when a condition is out of the scope of our practice, he will refer to appropriate and trusted collegaues.

In addition to adjustments and soft tissue techniques, we believe that the body must also be treated from both the inside out and vice versa.   Our ionic detox foot baths are a natural method of assisting the body in eliminating harmful toxins, heavy metals, and other harmful foreign matter, which can work against the body's healing - treating the body from the inside out.   While our line of  natural supplements help you address the effects the outside is having on your inside.  We are proud partners with PHYSICA ENERGETICS and METAGENICS.

Dr. Nagel is a seasoned chiropractor and expert in conditions of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system.  His diagnostic skills are sharp and his treatment methods are highly effective and lead to positive patient outcomes.  He strives to determine the root cause of your health condition -- not just treat the symptoms or area of complaint.    Unfortunately, conventional medicine does not usually take this approach with treatment and management of health issues.   He believes it is extremely important to identify the underlying problem and determine the best approach to correct it. 

Dr. Nagel is also a sports medicine physician with over 30 years experience and is a certified Iron Man provider.

Our Facilities

We have worked to create a warm and relaxing environment to help you disconnect and find balance away from the hustle of urban living and life’s daily worries.   Our patients express an immediate sense of warmth and serenity and often long for more of the quiet and calm atmosphere we offer.

What We Do

As an alternative health care discipline, chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health -  addressing disorders with a natural, hands-on approach.  It is a holistic approach to health, meaning that it views the body as whole, with every component relying on every other component.  Chiropractic care aims to handle any health related issue by ensuring your entire body is functioning well.

Chiropractic emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.   With this philosophy,  Dr. Nagel is able to help his patients with many conditions, which they otherwise would not have thought to see a chiropractor for.   Our purpose is to be your first health care option for wellness and optimization of health.  Our happy patients often say they had been suffering from painful symptoms or conditions because they simply did not know what type of doctor they needed to see.
