Pembroke Pines Back Injury Treatment

Any number of accidents or repeated stresses can result in back pain, from falls to car accidents to lifting objects for work. You may have suffered a back injury that’s completely derailed your everyday routine, causing you discomfort that detracts from your quality of life. You may be used to suffering in silence and grinding out your day despite the pain, but you can reclaim your life with chiropractic treatment.

Specific Care Chiropractic provides the best in Pembroke Pines back injury treatment.  Our chiropractic care and physiotherapy will relieve your discomfort, reduce your pain, and put you back in control of your life.

We Perform Spinal Manipulations to Facilitate Your Back Injury Recovery

You may benefit from spinal manipulation, a chiropractic method that realigns the vertebrae with the spinal cord as intended. To perform spinal manipulations, our chiropractors apply a controlled thrust to specific joints in the spine. The procedure improves spinal mobility, reduces pain and inflammation, and improves functionality in parts of your body.

We offer a range of chiropractic adjustments for the spine to treat back injuries. The back treatment for you depends on the area of injury, the cause of the injury, and your level of comfort or tolerance for force. The spinal adjustments we offer include:

Diversified Adjustments (Diversified Chiropractic Technique or DCT)

Diversified adjustments are the most widely known treatments in chiropractic care. Practitioners identify misalignments or lack of mobility in the spine and use their hands to push the joints back into place.

The DCT is associated with the popping or cracking of the back. During treatment, the chiropractor brings the joint to its natural resistance point and then thrusts it slightly beyond. Diversified adjustment technique is usually performed while you are laying down but can be done in a seated position. This is known as seated diversified adjustment.

Thompson “Drop-Table” Technique

The Thompson Technique, also called the drop-table technique, is a more gentle chiropractic adjustment that allows the patient to maintain a more neutral position and requires less force from the doctor. It utilizes a segmented table that drops with each thrust on the patient’s joint.

Sacral-Occipital Technique (SOT)

Sacral-Occipital Technique (SOT) is an adjustment technique that aims to reposition the pelvis and restore the functional communication between the base and the top of the spine. The SOT uses light or gentle adjustments and custom wedges to provide complete balance and relaxation throughout the process.

Side Posture

Side posture is a technique that can help with lower back pain. On top of a pelvic bench, the patient lies on their side with one knee extended. The doctor adjusts the spine while standing adjacent to the tabletop.

Knee-chest

The knee-chest technique targets the upper cervical spine. A misalignment here can adversely impact the nervous system and other parts of your body. The name derives from the position the patient takes as they receive the correction. The patient kneels and places their chest on the adjustment table. The chiropractor then conducts the spinal manipulation to realign the vertebrae.

Toggle Recoil (Hole-in-One)

Toggle recoil, also known as the Hole-in-One technique is an upper cervical spine technique focused on the first and second bones in the neck. It is one of the first chiropractic techniques developed and is one of the gentler methods of manipulation utilizing smaller, quicker thrusts.

Activator Method

The activator method is an instrument technique where a hand-held, spring-loaded instrument is used to administer a quick, low-force jolt to specific joints. Due to its high speed, the activator adjusting instrument is less likely to allow the patient’s muscles to tense up (resisting treatment and resulting in injury). Further, the force is localized, allowing for greater control, as the joints are not put in any compromising positions (i.e. no twisting or bending).

We Offer Physiotherapy to Treat Back Injuries

In addition to chiropractic back injury treatment, we also offer physiotherapy. Focused on improving mobility, function, and quality of life, physiotherapy is a range of interventions, services, and physical methods used to treat people suffering from illness, injury, or disability. One study published in the journal Spinal Cord demonstrates that physiotherapy methods increase voluntary strength in muscles directly affected by spinal cord injury.

Our offices use it for prevention and rehabilitation of back injury or related injuries. We focus on strengthening your muscles and increasing flexibility, encouraging your body to correct the damage the back injury has caused.

Types of Physiotherapy Methods We Use to Treat Back Problems

Our doctors include the following types of physiotherapy techniques:

  • Massage therapy
  • Rehabilitative therapy
  • Stretching and strengthening exercise
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (E-STIM)
  • Corrective care
