UVCA President 2015-2019
“I obviously love my job.”
Even as I approach my 40th anniversary in practice, I am still asked why I decided to become a Chiropractor and how it seems I obviously love my job. I explain that I learned long ago that health does not come from a bottle of pills; health is about choosing a positive lifestyle and making good choices about food, exercise, and how you take care of your body. Having the opportunity to help a wide variety of people understand this concept is truly rewarding.
Since 1982 I have treated many wonderful and interesting individuals of all ages, from every walk of life and from many countries. These include government employees, mechanics, diplomats, professionals, construction workers, politicians, pregnant women, our military, new mothers, and amateur, high school and pro athletes. Nothing can compare to the satisfaction I feel when I provide an individual with relief from pain that they had not previously experienced.
I am a 1978 graduate of Arizona State University and earned my Doctor of Chiropractic in 1981 from New York Chiropractic College where I received special recognition for service and leadership; but school seems forever ago. In truth, I have learned more from my patients then I learned in any class or from any book. Every adjustment I perform and every x-ray I read is enhanced by my many years of experience.
Springfield, VA Chiropractor wants you to know how important you are.
I believe in the importance of family, community and integrity. I provide compassionate care because I consider your health and well-being important. I am active in my local, civic, and religious community, have served on many boards and continue to offer my time, skill and interests to many organizations.
To remain current I have taken numerous continuing education courses to enhance my knowledge and skills. Some of these include specific classes on auto injuries, disc damage, advanced Chiropractic techniques, patient safety, and a broad variety of extremity techniques. As a member of the Executive Board of the Unified Virginia Chiropractic Association I have been involved in leadership, planning and implementation of the advancement of Chiropractic in Virginia. Being involved in elevating the skills and knowledge of all Chiropractors in Virginia is particularly important and rewarding. We bring in the best speakers and educators and offer frequent opportunities to sharpen our skills.
Dr. David Dolberg Loves His Job.
So why do I love this job? It’s because I have the privilege of helping patients attain their health goals and I see it happening before my eyes. At Family Chiropractic of Springfield we listen, we evaluate, we consider options, and provide the best chiropractic care available. In the end, when your patients see your concern and you deliver quality care they can’t help but thrive. And what could be more rewarding than that?
2012 Chiropractor of the Year
Afton, VA – On October 13, 2012, in conjunction with its Fall Convention in Williamsburg, Virginia, the Unified Virginia Chiropractic Association (Unified VCA) named Dr. David Dolberg of Springfield, Virginia its Chiropractor of the Year.
Chiropractor of the Year nominations are submitted to a committee comprised of the previous three recipients of this top Unified VCA award. For this year, that committee consisted of Dr. Jay Greenstein, Dr. Christopher Bruno, and Dr. Brad Robinson.
Dr. David Dolberg owns and runs Family Chiropractic of Springfield, and has been in practice for over 30 years. When asked why he decided to become a Chiropractor, he answers, “I learned long ago that health does not come from a bottle of pills; health is about choosing a positive lifestyle and making good choices about food, exercise, and how you take care of your body. Having the opportunity to help a wide variety of people understand this concept is truly rewarding.”
Dr. Dolberg is a 1978 graduate of Arizona State University who earned his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1981 from New York Chiropractic College, where he received special recognition for service and leadership. He loves to travel, and two of his travel photos are featured in this year’s ACA calendar. The Unified VCA has benefited from his photographic talent, as well, via Dr. Dolberg’s photographic coverage of the association’s last several conventions.
Dr. Dolberg is active in his local, civic, and religious community. He has served on many boards and continues to offer his time, skill and interests to many organizations. As Treasurer of the Unified VCA, he keeps an eye out on the bottom line and seeks out new opportunities to create income and save on expenses. He enabled the expansion of the Public Relation Committee’s Celebrate Wellness! initiative by organizing and running two successful silent auctions. He takes every opportunity to help members and to encourage non-members both doctors and suppliers to join.
Dr. Tom Wetzen, Unified VCA President, comments, “Dr. Dolberg provides valuable insights and perspective as a member of the Executive Committee. The Association and I are fortunate to have the benefit of his energy and talents.”
Rumor has it that the only thing Dr. Dolberg would like better than being a Chiropractor in Springfield, VA would be to be the Chiropractor for the New York Yankees!
Chiropractor Christina Wellner D.C.
“My passion is to help people!”
As an athlete, trained doula, health nut, GMU associate professor, wife, and mom of two boys, I like to bring compassion and the utmost care to each and every one of my patients.
My purpose as a Doctor of Chiropractic is to help as many people as possible get well, stay healthy naturally and educate them about how chiropractic care can help them maintain optimal health. I strongly believe in patient education and empowering patients and their families to improve the quality of their lives through a multidisciplinary approach. I examine patients, review their history, analyze the results of digital x-ray findings, as well as diagnose and treat the patient's condition, advising them about methods of preventive health care.
I work with numerous healthcare professionals within the area including local OBGYN offices, general practitioners, orthopedic doctors, neurologist, and various other health care professionals to administer the best care possible to my patients’ needs.
In my quest to help as many people as possible within northern virginia, I have built a patient base of pre/postnatal mothers, infants, children, athletes, migraine sufferers as well as treated countless pre/post-operative shoulder/knee/spine, disc injury, sciatic pain, nerve pain, and chronic pain patients, just to name a few.
I’m looking forward to helping you and your family today!
I received my Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic and was the recipient of the James Buerkle Memorial Award for leadership, service, and commitment to Palmer College and the chiropractic profession. I was also nominated by my peers and faculty members for the esteemed Clinic Excellence Award as well as The Virgil V. Strang Philosophy Award.
Dr. Christina Wellner Loves Pregnant Moms and Kids.
There is no better feeling than becoming a mom! As a mother of two boys, I understand the importance of having a happy and healthy pregnancy without pain and discomfort. I have taken numerous classes in order to provide care and comfort to my expectant mothers and their families including being certified in the Webster protocol (technique specific for pregnant mothers) as well as taken doula training courses. I have put together proven protocols to manage a variety of pregnancy pains such as sacroiliac joint pain, pubic symphysis pain, sciatica, pregnancy headaches, low back/neck pain, carpal tunnel, breech position pregnancies, and round ligament pain.
For my pediatric patients, I believe in allowing a child’s natural healing abilities to shine through by using a combination of gentle spinal adjustments and nutritional/lifestyle advice. In my quest to educate others about the role of chiropractic in children’s health care, I have hosted classes and lectures in the local area about the importance of a healthy lifestyle for expectant mothers, babies, and families.
I truly believe that healthy kids become healthy adults!
