Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body’s muscular-skeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints that are restricted by tissue injury. That could be caused by a traumatic event: such as falling, repetitive stress, or sitting without proper back support. Chiropractic care is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue (such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons). It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
Personal Injury Rehabilitation services
slip and fall
In car accident cases only, Florida follows a no-fault system, which means that after most traffic accidents, an injured person’s own insurance company will provide coverage for medical expenses and lost income, no matter who was at fault for the accident. If you do not see a doctor within 14 days of the accident, you will lose the ability to use your PIP coverage for medical treatments. You have the right to choose your own physician. We provide a variety of treatments to help our patients feel better and recover as fast as possible.

If you’re an athlete, you understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport such as running, jumping and tackling. Putting your body through these activities can result in painful tears, sprains, and strains. But seeing a chiropractor can help you when you’ve suffered sports injuries and also help to prevent them.
This is when the doctor sits down with you and discusses your injuries and complains. Orthopedic and neurological tests are performed on the first visit. This is when you will get to address all your complaints and describe all your symptoms, concerns and sensations. After your consultation you may get an adjustment and a recommended treatment plan.

One of the most important is therapeutic stretching. It is important to prevent scar tissue and adhesion formation following injury. Stretching is most effective when initiated early on in the treatment plan before scar tissues become permanent. Maintaining a regular stretching program once the rehabilitation stage of treatment has been completed will help keep tissues flexible and loose, increasing mobility and preventing the development of new injuries.
