A back injury can be a life-changing experience and can lead to debilitating damage. If you suffered a back injury, our physicians at Specific Care Chiropractic can develop a tailored treatment plan for you. We use chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy to help you heal.
If you hurt your back in a car accident or work-related accident, you’ve chosen the right place. Our team can help you determine your insurance coverage options and work with your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. We can also refer you to an attorney to assist you with an injury claim. Our Pompano Beach back injury treatment will help you with your physical recovery process and beyond.
Specific Care Chiropractic Rehabilitation for Back Injuries in Pompano Beach
Our team at Specific Care Chiropractic can help you whether you hurt your back in a vehicle accident or during your everyday routine. We can help you build a treatment plan after an injury that resulted from:
- An accident involving a car, truck, or bicycle
- A slip and fall while shopping
- Heavy lifting at work
- An incident involving physical assault
- A pedestrian accident
We could also assist you after injury accidents beyond those listed here.
Our rehabilitation programs typically involve four stages. You can discuss these stages with your chiropractor before you begin your plan.
Stage One: the Acute Phase
In this stage, we focus on addressing the root cause of your back injury and use techniques to promote pain relief. For example:
Our medical team will perform chiropractic adjustments on your spine. The techniques they use will depend on the location and severity of your injury. We use gentle maneuvers to help your spine return to its proper alignment. These procedures can also improve your spine’s motility and relieve any irritation caused by pressure on the nerves.
Our chiropractic team will guide you through a range of stretching exercises that work to release any soft tissue tightness or tension caused by your accident. These stretches will also help to strengthen your back muscles and increase their flexibility.
We work with licensed massage therapists who will meet with you and massage your back and the surrounding areas to help relax your muscles. Our massage therapists may use a range of techniques, depending on the unique needs of your injury.
Stage Two: the Rehab Phase
During this phase of your treatment, our team will continue to use chiropractic adjustments, stretching, and massage therapy. Your therapists will make slight adjustments to the treatment protocol as your body begins to heal. The time it takes to progress through the rehab phase depends on several factors, including:
- The type of back injury you sustained
- The severity of your injury
- The time it takes for you to build strength to advance your treatment plan
With this phase of treatment, our goal is to help you regain your range of normal motion and improve your joint function.
Stage Three: the Strengthening Phase
Over time, as you begin to see improvement in your range of motion, you will be ready for the strengthening phase. During this phase, your therapists will advance your physiotherapy program so that you can recover strength in your back—with the goal to build your strength even beyond your pre-injury condition.
During this phase, we may recommend:
- Final spinal adjustments to relieve any lingering pain
- A strengthening program utilizing weights or longer periods of exercise
- Deep tissue massage
Stage Four: the Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) Phase
This is the final phase of your rehabilitation with Specific Care Chiropractic. When you reach MMI, you will have attained the same physical condition as before your back injury or a more improved condition. This standard in medical care means that you are now fit and well enough to resume your regular daily activities without receiving any further treatment.

Paying for Your Chiropractic Treatment After a Car Accident or Work Accident
If you were in a serious accident someone else caused, you’re probably wondering if your personal injury compensation will cover the cost of your medical care at Specific Care Chiropractic. If your lawyer is successful and you win your case, some of the compensation may cover your treatment expenses.
In other situations, you may be able to use your own personal injury protection (PIP) to pay for your treatment. We also work with those who are treating on-the-job injuries through workers’ compensation benefits.
If you are concerned about your ability to pay for your treatment at Specific Care Chiropractic, we can offer you a range of payment options. Before you commit to a treatment program, our team will discuss your options with you.
