Evidence-based, chiropractic care tailored to your condition
Florida Spine and Joint
Your body is a complicated masterpiece of nature. In it is a complex musculoskeletal system comprising 206 bones, 360 joints, 650 muscles, 900 ligaments and a staggering 1,320 tendons. All of these parts of your musculoskeletal system must be working properly to be able to move freely without pain and obstruction.
A single injury or physical condition to one of these parts can make it difficult for you to live the life you love. In these situations, it’s important for you to seek professional healthcare treatment to help restore your quality of life. That’s why you may need to see a Doctor of Chiropractic if you’re suffering from chronic pain or an injury.
Doctors of Chiropractic treat primarily through the manipulation of joints. Manipulation (also known as adjustment) helps restore mobility in joints that have been immobilized due to a soft tissue injury or a chronic condition. Restoring the mobility of the joints also helps reduce pain and promote the healing of any tissue still damaged from an injury.
The manipulations are often portrayed in movies as comically painful. However, chiropractic adjustments rarely cause discomfort. Some mild soreness and aching may develop after the treatment, but this usually last no longer than a day or two. This soreness pales in comparison to the pain chiropractic treats.
People of all ages can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care. It can be as beneficial for a newborn baby as it is for a senior. However, chiropractic care is not for everyone.
For example, people with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord compression or people who are taking blood thinners should not have chiropractic adjustment of the spine. At Florida Spine and Joint, our Doctors of Chiropractic can determine if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care. Our team members are highly trained and skilled at identifying the abnormalities in the spine and joints that can best benefit from chiropractic adjustment.

Are There Risks Involved In
Complications in chiropractic care are rare. It is a minimally invasive treatment that does not involve incisions, injections or medications. The biggest concern of many chiropractic patients is pain, but the procedure itself is not painful. At worst, you may experience a little soreness after treatment for a few hours.
Although the risks are extremely rare, it’s still fair for you to know them. Risks involved with chiropractic care may include a slipped disc, nerve compression or a stroke.
Our Doctors of Chiropractic at Florida Spine and Joint will evaluate your condition and determine if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care. If you’re at a higher risk for any of these complications, your Doctor of Chiropractic will recommend alternative treatment options.
