FAQs About Chiropractic Care in Miami

We have provided a list of the most commonly asked Chiropractor FAQs we have received from our patients. However, the most important thing to keep in mind is that you can suffer injuries that are not apparent immediately after any type of accident. After some time, these injuries can cause you debilitating pain.

A visit to Silverman Chiropractic Services and Rehabilitation Center will help establish if you have a soft tissue injury so that you can start receiving chiropractic treatment.


I have been to the hospital and my medical doctor, is there a need to see a chiropractor?

Hospitals usually check vital signs to ensure that auto accident victims do not have life-threatening conditions. You are then given pain-relief medication before release. A chiropractor focuses on diagnosing and treating injuries sustained from auto accidents. We address the underlying musculoskeletal biomechanical issues that can cause pain in the future. It would be best if you got a second opinion from a chiropractor.

Pills issued by your medical doctor, do not correct soft-tissue or structural damage. A chiropractor could help you get relief from pain and put you on the right path to healing if you suffered a whiplash or injuries that involve ligaments, muscles or joints. We use various treatment methods including traction, massage, mobilization, ice/heat, ultrasound and electrical stimulation.


Should I see an attorney before seeing my chiropractor?

It is essential first to get checked by a doctor after an auto accident. Your health comes first. The finding from your doctor’s examination will help inform on the type of damages you can claim. Your doctor can recommend reputable and qualified lawyers.

What is involved in chiropractic treatment for auto accident injuries?

We understand that no two injuries are the same, and we have customized our treatment plans to suit your unique chiropractic care needs. Spinal adjustments and decompressions can be used to restore range of motion, reduce pain and inflammation due to misalignment in the spine. This can also be used to treat herniated discs, which causes strain on spinal nerves. After treatment, you will experience reduced pain and an enhanced range of motion.

Trigger point therapy, corrective exercises and myofascial release can be incorporated with spinal adjustments to speed up your recovery. Massage helps enhance the flow of blood to the affected areas for faster healing, while corrective exercises build strength in muscles and joints to restore flexibility and range of motion.
