Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Your Spinal Column
The benefits of chiropractic care are vast and studies show that regular chiropractic treatment is one of the most effective methods of complementary and alternative medicine. Spinal manipulation therapy has been found to improve several medical conditions while providing the following health benefits simultaneously:
When the vertebrae of the spine are properly aligned, the muscles and ligaments can stretch and move as they are intended to.
Spinal adjustments that are performed by a licensed chiropractor can prevent the need for surgical intervention.
Can Lower High Blood Pressure
Following a spinal adjustment, the blood flow to the heart increases. Therefore, the heart does not need to work as hard to supply the rest of the body with the blood it needs.
The wellness plan the chiropractor creates is designed to manage the individual’s pain. Reaching this goal can take time and usually requires multiple spinal adjustment sessions.

Learn more about Licensed Chiropractors
Our licensed chiropractors at Icon Medical Centers can help you to return your life to normal after a personal injury or accident involving a work, sports, or auto-related incident. The alternative physical treatment that chiropractors can provide will be personalized to your needs and that of your injury, ensuring that you can receive the pain relief and healing that you need to recover as soon as possible. Our team of trained chiropractors at Icon Medical is adept at a range of different chiropractic methods, which you can find out more about by reading on.
Chiropractors are trained in hands-on manipulation of the spine, which connects to the nervous system. By relieving pressure on the spine, and also the nervous system, they can help to increase circulation, boost full bodily healing, and relieve pain caused by pressure on the nerves. This is achieved through the ability to force your vertebrae and spine into the correct position through manual practices, which all of our chiropractors are highly trained in.
At our chiropractic centers, the best chiropractors near you that we employ use high-quality equipment and traditional methods in order to conduct this specialist spinal manipulation to the best of their ability. They can combine this with modern perspectives and technology in order to give you the best balance between traditional holistic care and modern medicine.
Our accident and injury chiropractors are trained to be able to advise you on a series of lifestyle changes that can complement your sessions, including lifestyle and dietary requirements. Joined with your chiropractic adjustments, you can then receive the best natural care possible for your injury in order to promote recovery both inside and outside sessions with your chiropractor.
- A herniated disk
- A bulging spinal disk
- Spinal stenosis, in which the spinal canal becomes narrow
- Spondylolisthesis, which causes vertebrae to slip over one another
- Being overweight
Firstly, when you visit your chiropractor, they will discuss with you your injury and any other concerns that you have so that they can establish what type of treatment you will need and the practices that can suit you best. This is similar to a normal doctor’s appointment and should not be an event to be concerned about.
Then, a physical examination will most likely occur around your spinal and neck area, especially in the area which is causing you pain. This may take the form of a variety of tests such as reflex testing, strength and motion tests, all of which will help your chiropractor to discern what is causing your pain and the issue behind your health problems.
They will then be able to construct a treatment plan for you based on what they have discovered. This will take into consideration how painful the injury is, how long you have had the injury, and what you want the outcome of the care to be. They will then be able to establish how many sessions you should attend in order to recover and will discuss with you the particular practices that they believe will be beneficial to your health issue.
The chiropractor will then use their hands to conduct a spinal manipulation which can assert your vertebrae into the right position and relieve pressure on your nervous system. They may also use short, sharp movements, gradual pulling, or they may move your joints into the positions that they are meant to be in. Your doctor or GP may have recommended visiting a chiropractor, or you can self-refer, depending on your situation and the practices that you believe will benefit you the most.
- Chiropractic care can help with a variety of different conditions caused by personal injuries such as auto and workplace accidents, and these include back pain, neck pain, whiplash, shoulder pain, and elbow pain.
- Chiropractors can also be seen for long-term or chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis. A sports chiropractor can be seen for sports-related injuries such as tennis elbow.
- Many patients also visit their local chiropractor in order to get relief from repetitive stress injuries such as carpel tunnel syndrome, which can be caused by office work.
- Chiropractors can also help you to improve posture, which can be poor due to issues with the positioning of your spine and vertebrae. Combining this with stretches and other solutions can help to provide relief from this.
- However, chiropractic treatment can be used to solve any issues with the joints, muscles, ligaments or tendons due to the ability of the chiropractor to adapt this towards your personal needs and that of your injury.
Sciatica is low back pain that radiates downward into one or both legs. Sciatica pain can be very painful and is usually caused by compression on the largest nerve of your body, called the sciatic nerve. Compression of the sciatic nerve may be caused by a herniated or bulging disc. If you are experiencing lumbar spine pain, leg pain, or sciatic pain, you can find a chiropractor here at Icon Medical Centers who is experienced and trained in relieving sciatica pain.
Icon Medical provides a team of licensed chiropractors for those in the Miami and Hollywood area, and you can self-refer to these appointments.

Additionally, our team focus and specialize in injuries caused by personal injuries, meaning that those who have been injured due to factors outside of their control can find the help that they need to return to full health.
Your doctor may recommend alternative treatments such as a licensed chiropractor if traditional and medicinal treatments are having no effect on your condition, or you can combine these types of treatments with chiropractic care for the ultimate healing effect. You should look for a chiropractor who has had a college education and will have attended chiropractic college for four years. You should ascertain that they are properly licensed with DC before their names.
