Each chiropractor Miami, FL patients recommend from Aventura Wellness & Rehab Center is a highly trained medical professional who is familiar with the structure of the skeletomuscular system and its issues. Chiropractors operate from a philosophical standpoint that the biomechanical nature of the body, as well as its structure, can lead to complicated medical problems and pain, but bringing these elements back into alignment and balance can restore a patient’s health.
If you are suffering from chronic pain, a chiropractor, with the knowledge gained from formal schooling as well as direct practice, can perform manual adjustments to return you to optimal health.
Once the spine or other joints are returned to full mobility, the entire body can recover from a host of medical issues. Our chiropractor is an expert in this field and is more than qualified to address any of the problems that you have when you first walk into our office.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
In addition to a thorough examination of the skeletal system, especially the spine and its alignment, a chiropractor will conduct an extensive case history with the patient so that the treatment plan addresses the entire situation. After a thorough physical examination, including manipulation of the body to determine problems with alignment, the chiropractor can then develop a treatment plan to address the specific issues that the patient is presenting.
Subsequent visits address these issues with an array of approaches, including manual manipulation of the body, known as “adjustments.” These manipulations target the affected areas with trained hands that can bring the body back into full alignment, allowing for the optimal flow of nerve impulses, energy, and muscle movement. As a result of these chiropractic services and adjustments, back pain, neck pain, and joint pain can all receive the relief that patients seek.
How is chiropractic care different from visiting a regular general practitioner or a physical therapist? Beyond the manual manipulation of the adjustments, the chiropractor really focuses on treating the whole patient.
Once alignment is restored, subsequent visits may be necessary for adjustments to fine-tune, maintain, and restore this balance even further.
Chiropractic care with us goes beyond the process of manual manipulation and adjustments. Since we treat the entire patient, our office embraces further treatment protocols to maximize the effectiveness of the chiropractic visit.

What Types of Pain Can a Chiropractor Treat?
A chiropractor Miami, FL patients trust knows that many people suffer with chronic pain, whether from a medical condition or injury. Unfortunately, traditional medicine’s approach to pain is to treat it with medications – many of these painkillers are addictive. But this approach only masks the pain and typically does nothing to alleviate it. Chiropractic care provides alternative treatment options that focus on identifying and treating the underlying causes of the pain. The following are some of the most common types of pain that the chiropractors at Aventura Wellness & Rehab Center can treat.
Back and Neck Pain
Perhaps the best-known use of chiropractic medicine is to relieve back and neck pain. Our lifestyles, posture, and previous injuries can all contribute to these conditions. Better spinal alignment can help relieve it. In addition to manipulations, your Miami chiropractor can recommend exercises to help maintain your posture and spine health between visits. These at-home exercises can also help speed the healing process along.
Pain running from the lower back through the buttocks to the legs is generally caused by problems with the sciatic nerve. A disk in the spine which is herniated or bulging is frequently the cause. Spinal manipulations can often relieve this symptom.
Arms and Hands
Many aches, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms in the arms and hands are actually coming from misalignment of the back, neck, shoulders, or other areas. For example, people who work at jobs where they are sitting at a computer keying all day often develop issues with the carpal tunnel nerve. This can also happen to cashiers who scan items over and over again, as well as people who work in a manufacturing plant assembly line.
As with the arms and hands, shoulder pain comes from a variety of conditions, and can sometimes be caused by misalignment and tension elsewhere in the body. Systematic chiropractic treatment can help relieve pain regardless of the source.
Arthritic joints are often stiff, swollen, and painful. A Miami chiropractor can develop a treatment program that can improve outcomes for patients who suffer from arthritis by improving circulation and nerve function.
There are a number of complex causes that can cause chronic headaches. Muscle tension caused by misalignment is a leading cause and chiropractic treatment can help. Your cranial bones can also become misaligned, and light manipulations around these regions are effective at relieving headache pain.
You may not think about chiropractic care for chronic sinus pain, but it can be an effective part of treating the underlying causes of sinusitis. Chronically inflamed sinus cavities may benefit from chiropractic techniques that relieve the inflammation and clear the sinuses.
