Although there are various types of personal injuries, the one thing that all personal injury claims have in common is that they are all accidents that occurred as a result of someone else's negligence. Keeping this in mind, not all personal injuries are the same, while some may require hospitalization, others can be treated most effectively with the help of an experienced Chiropractor. When you suffer from an injury that was caused by another's careless actions, filing a claim for compensation is your best chance at receiving all of the benefits that you deserve. Now it's important to keep in mind that the negligent person's insurance company will try to minimize your payout as much as possible, or even avoid it altogether. Now you may be wondering just where does a chiropractor fit into all of this?

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy and How Does It Work?

on Aug 9, 2018 2:58:10 PM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 3 Comments | spinal decompression
If you have been to a chiropractor, you may have noticed that they offer Spinal Decompression Therapy, and you may be wondering what this is and how it helps. Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical option for treatment that is specifically designed for those who are suffering from mild to moderate back pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy is used to realign the spine and help to relieve pressure on pinched nerves that are causing chronic pain. The traction from spinal decompression therapy will increase the circulation to the damaged disc which allows it to begin the natural healing process. This may also reduce compression of nearby spinal nerve roots. This type of therapy is often prescribed by a Chiropractor when a patient is suffering from chronic back pain from damaged discs.

Soft Tissue Injuries: What You Need To Know

on Jul 19, 2018 4:52:28 PM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | chiropractic care
One of the most common types of injuries that Chiropractors treat for patients is Soft Tissue Injuries. These types of injuries are so common because Soft Tissue is responsible for connecting, supporting, and surrounding the structure and functionality of the body, including our bone and organ structure. Because of their involvement throughout the entire body, soft tissues can easily be exposed to injuries when a person is involved in an accident or over-exerts themselves. Chiropractic Care is so effective at treating Soft Tissue Injuries because Chiropractors have been trained to treat conditions of the Musculoskeletal system, which includes Soft Tissue. Chiropractic care is safe, an noninvasive treatment that works to heal the cause of the issue, not just mask the symptoms. Which means no medication for pain will be prescribed. So how do Chiropractors treat Soft Tissue Injuries? Before we discuss the benefits of Chiropractic care for Soft Tissue Injuries, lets first discuss what exactly Soft Tissue and Soft Tissue Injuries are. Article Table of Contents: What is Soft Tissue?

Back pain is nondiscriminatory and can impact people of all ages, genders, races, and socioeconomic status.
