Pompano Beach residents who are living with pain from musculoskeletal conditions, certain traumatic injuries, or nerve damage may benefit significantly from chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulations.
When you get a chiropractic adjustment, our licensed chiropractors will first assess your current injuries and determine a specific treatment plan to correct misalignment or help you build strength. This process can ease the pain you are experiencing and boost your spinal mobility. At Specific Care Chiropractic, we offer Pompano Beach chiropractic adjustments to help you on the path towards healing.

Spine-Related Pain Can Result From Acute Injury or Long-Term Stress
If you face a back injury after a car accident, serious pain can suddenly come into your life. These injuries can cause a dramatic reduction in your quality of life.
Spinal injuries can also develop gradually over time due to poor posture and other problems that gradually put pressure on your spine in ways that it’s not meant to handle. These types of injuries can also be treated with chiropractic care.
Other health conditions can lead to spinal misalignment. This is often the case with scoliosis, which is an abnormal curvature of the spine most frequently diagnosed in adolescents according to Mayo Clinic. Our chiropractors take the time to understand what’s causing your back pain so that we can determine the appropriate treatment plan.
How Misalignments in the Spine Affect Other Parts of the Body
Sometimes, it can be unclear that your pain and/or lack of mobility is directly resulting from a spinal misalignment. For instance, you may be experiencing frequent headaches caused by your spinal injury, and these could be mitigated through chiropractic adjustments.
Nerve root compression is a common cause of pain when the spine is misaligned. Sciatica, for instance, tends to show up as pain in the legs that can be disabling, per The BMJ. The cause is most commonly a herniated disc compressing a nerve, among other contributing factors. Chiropractic treatment for sciatica includes chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative therapy, massage therapy, and other options.
Inflammation resulting from your spinal injury can cause stiffness and discomfort in areas adjacent to your spine, and misalignment can also cause other muscles in your body to overwork themselves. This can give the impression that the root cause of the injury is somewhere else.
How Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help You Manage Pain?
Chiropractic adjustments are one of the safest and most effective treatments available to treat people in Pompano Beach suffering from back injuries. The manual manipulations performed by our chiropractors will help take the pressure off pinched nerves and overworked muscles so that you can enjoy a better quality of life.
There is quite a variety of spinal manipulations in the world of chiropractic care. Some techniques we use include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Diversified adjustments, in which the chiropractor forcefully pushes vertebrae back into their proper position
- Seated diversified adjustments, in which the above technique is applied while the patient is sitting in a chair
- Knee-chest adjustments, in which the chiropractor aligns the head or neck while the patient is kneeling and the adjustment table supports their chest
- Extremity adjustments, in which various joints in the hips, elbows, wrists, or other extremities are manipulated and aligned
When your spine returns to proper alignment, you could see a dramatic improvement in your lower back pain, chronic headaches, and even injury-related fatigue.
Preparing for Your Pompano Beach Chiropractic Adjustment
Our chiropractors seek to make the process of regaining your mobility as easy and effective as possible. We begin the process by taking X-rays to determine the exact location of your injury and make an informed plan for treating your pain.
We take a holistic approach to every injury, so your initial visit will be dedicated to an exam and a discussion of your overall health in addition to the symptoms leading you to seek out care. We want you to feel relaxed and confident that everything that may affect the outcome of your recovery is being considered.
After your first two visits, we will have a clearer picture of what needs to be done to help you recover and regain your strength. This is when we’ll present you with a treatment plan, which may require sessions on a regular basis for multiple weeks or months.
Physiotherapy Supports Lasting Recoveries After Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic care in Pompano Beach isn’t just about adjustments that make your vertebrae pop back into place. These treatments could be supplemented by another category of treatments known as physiotherapy, which is designed to strengthen and align muscles so that you can recover faster and prevent future injuries.
By providing you with exercises that you can do at home on a regular basis, our team will help ensure that your recovery has long-lasting results by supporting good posture and improved back muscle strength. Procedures that fall under the physiotherapy umbrella include:
- Massage therapy to relieve pain and encourage blood flow
- Stretching and strengthening exercises to improve mobility
- Electrotherapeutic procedures like ultrasound therapy
A combination of Pompano Beach chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy can help you put your chronic spine-related pain behind you.
