In today's day and age, we want everything to be instant. We don't want to wait for anything. The phones we carry around in our pockets are the main culprit. Need to find a restaurant? Hop on TripAdvisor. Need to settle an argument? A quick Google search will solve it. Need fashion advice from your stylist friend? Hop on Facetime, and she can give you pointers immediately. Need a ride? An Uber will be waiting for you. We have fast food, and Uber eats, so we don't have to be bothered to cook or even leave our houses for food anymore. We're spoiled, and even entitled when it comes to our time. However, when it comes to health and healing, things haven't caught up with the times. Although medicine has come a very long way, nothing is instant. The magic pill hasn't been invented yet. Things like back pain seem to last forever, and there's not an app on our phone to get rid of it. Our best option is to go to the chiropractor. Getting an adjustment from our chiropractor is often the quickest, safest way to get relief from your back pain.

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?
