Pembroke Pines resident Sam wasn’t a stranger to chiropractic treatment. He’d suffered intermittent back pain from a young age and had visited chiropractors for it throughout his life, which was why, when he got into a car accident, Sam knew right away he had to see a chiropractor.
Even minor car accidents can cause serious injuries that can linger in the weeks and months after the event, especially soft-tissue and musculoskeletal injuries in the spine, back, and neck.
When our patient John pulled out from the Applebees on Pines Boulevard and stopped at the intersection on N. Palm Avenue, he had no idea his life was about to change for the worse. He’d barely stopped at the light when another car hit him from behind. The collision happened so fast he could barely remember what happened. But his body would feel the effects for months afterward.
A chiropractic adjustment is a manipulation applied to the spinal column to restore proper alignment, reduce or eliminate pain, improve the patient’s mobility, strengthen surrounding muscles, and resolve ongoing health issues.
