Call (239) 369-9109 to request an appointment today. We are eager to hear from you and begin creating your treatment plan.
Treating Spine Injuries Requires Special Care
Spine injuries can be very serious. Some are curable, while others will affect the rest of your life, even if you receive the best possible care. Our goal is to ensure you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI)—in other words, that you have received the most you can out of our treatment and are living your best possible life.
At your appointment, we can:
- Get a thorough understanding of your current medical condition and complete medical history
- Perform any tests (such as x-rays) that may help us establish a firm diagnosis regarding your spine injury
- Provide your first treatment based on the information gleaned from you and the diagnostic tests
- Discuss your long-term care options, including the pros and cons of each treatment, how long they will take, and how much each will cost
- Provide the recommended treatments professionally in our clean, welcoming facility
- Answer any questions you have about your treatment, either during your appointment or over the phone
At Specific Care Chiropractic, we understand that you are in pain and need efficient and compassionate treatment. You can depend on us to provide that treatment and thoroughly address any questions you have about your condition or our services.
Why See a Chiropractor for a Spine Injury?
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) states that chiropractors prioritize “the body’s ability to heal itself” over more radical treatments like surgery and medication.
Specific Care Chiropractic employs licensed professionals with the credentials and experience to order any or all of the following treatments, depending on your needs, preferences, and health.
With our understanding of human anatomy, we can realign your spine to the place(s) where it will do the most good. This could relieve pain caused by misaligned vertebrae.
Soft tissue massage can provide gentle relief. It can also promote general wellness and relieve stress-related tension, which could make a spine injury worse.
Our physiotherapy specialists can teach you how to move in ways that decrease both your pain and the risk of exacerbating the injury. Some exercises and stretches may help you heal and regain your previous strength and range of motion.
If you like the idea of seeing a medical professional who can create a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs, look no further. You do not have to deal with your injury alone. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can begin to manage and treat your pain.
Types of Spine Injuries We Treat in Davie
Spine injuries can lead to a variety of conditions, including:
Whiplash affects the vertebrae in the neck and often occurs due to a car accident. It causes pain and stiffness.
Discs keep your vertebrae from making direct contact. According to the Mayo Clinic, a disc rupturing or slipping out of place can cause pain or weakness. A herniated disc can also lead to sciatica.
Spinal Cord Injuries
When your spine is severely damaged, you could face a catastrophic injury, like paraplegia or quadriplegia. Paralysis injuries differ from patient to patient. Some retain a measure of control over the affected area, and some have no movement there at all.
Clearly, spine injuries vary greatly in type and severity. Whiplash can often heal within a reasonable period, while paralysis is incurable.
No matter what type of spine injury you suffered, we’ll do whatever we can to help you reach maximum medical improvement, whatever that looks like for you. Our team can work closely with you to achieve the best possible results.
Who Should Get Spine Injury Treatment?
Some people are more vulnerable to spine injuries than others. For instance, as the National Library of Medicine (NLM) states, most people who suffer a spinal cord injury are under 30 years old. That said, spine injuries can happen to anyone, regardless of age or health.
Most spine injuries occur due to an acute, violent event, such as a:
- Motor vehicle accident
- Deliberate attack
- Workplace accident
- Slip and fall accident
- Swimming pool accident
- Sports injury
If you are looking for spine injury treatment in Davie, Florida, we’re here for you, regardless of how old you are or how the injury occurred.
We Can Help With Your Spine Injury Lawsuit
As stated, many spine injuries are caused by accidents, like car crashes. If that is the case for you, you may have already considered hiring a Davie lawyer and filing a lawsuit for compensation against the at-fault party. If you were injured at work, you may be filing for workers’ compensation benefits.
To prove the merit of your case, your lawyer will likely need access to your medical records and history. With your permission, we would be happy to cooperate with your legal team and provide them with whatever they ask for, including:
- Test results
- A written statement
- Records from each visit
We want our clients to be able to afford whatever treatment they need, and are always happy to help clients pursue the insurance money that would make treatment more accessible.
If legal action is not an option for you, we can work out a payment plan that could make it easier for you to pay for treatment, with or without insurance.
