ChiroCare of Florida physicians work to alleviate pain and promote healing within the body, beginning from your first visit.

Fibromyalgia patients often suffer in silence for years, experimenting with a variety of medications, injections, and therapies that offer little to no relief.
At ChiroCare of Florida, our physicians use chiropractic to bring all our patients back to a state of total wellness, allowing them to re-experience the life that fibromyalgia stripped away.
When the sciatic nerve is compressed or impaired, it can cause symptoms to radiate down the body, causing muscle weakness, numbness, and tingling in the leg, ankle, foot, and toes.
Since pain can stem from a variety of conditions, having a thorough understanding of the underlying issue will be pivotal in planning an effective treatment plan.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the joints, resulting in stiffness and tenderness, as well as weakness in the muscles.
Chiropractic uses a variety of treatments to reduce this swelling, especially utilizing therapies to help alleviate inflammation. Improvements in range of motion and comfort can all be felt with chiropractic.
A loss of bone density leads to a likelihood of fracture in individuals suffering osteoporosis. This can cause severe back pain as well as postural changes that can affect your way of life.
Chiropractic aims to improve range of motion and strength, protecting the body against impacts that can cause fractures.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, often referred to as degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis. It occurs when the cartilage between joints wears down, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling.
Our physicians work to naturally reduce inflammation and improve mobility in the joints.
A herniated disc can occur at any point in the spine, but is common in the cervical and lumbar spine, as they are the more mobile areas.
Using spinal manipulation and soothing treatments such as ultrasound therapy, ChiroCare of Florida reduces pressure placed on spinal nerves and helps to promote healing.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is often approached with more aggressive treatment, such as anesthesia, corticosteroid injections, and surgery. But, in 75 percent of surgical cases, pain symptoms returned within a two-year period.
A more conservative treatment such as chiropractic is more effective at treating carpal tunnel pain at the source.
Spinal stenosis is a condition caused by a narrowing of the spinal canal. Chiropractic therapy aims to widen the space available for the spinal cord within the canal.
Treatment involves adjustments to correct the displacement of spinal discs, relieve tension in muscles, and remove pressure from nerves.

Tennis elbow is a common name for tendinitis of the elbow. This occurs when the tissue connecting muscle to bone becomes inflamed.
At ChiroCare of Florida, we use the Graston Technique to locate trigger points within the tissue and increase blood flow to the area. This relaxes the tissue and decreases inflammation.

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects certain nerves of the face.
Many individuals turn to a medication regimen or even surgery to correct the problem. However, a chiropractor will address nerve pain at the source, keeping treatment all-natural with minimal side effects.
Deep, aching pain in muscles is often linked to myofascial pain syndrome.
This chronic pain can be treated with a regimen of physical therapy and exercise to help lessen symptoms.
Likewise, soothing therapies such as hot laser can help alleviate pain and relax muscle.
After an injury, surgery, or natural occurrences like a stroke or heart attack, chronic pain in the arm or leg can develop. While many doctors will be quick to prescribe addictive medication, chiropractic works differently. Using heat or cold therapy in conjunction with physical therapy and spinal manipulation can help to alleviate symptoms.
Lack of pain relief after a spinal surgery is called post-laminectomy syndrome or failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS).
In many patients, this can be incredibly frustrating and costly. Chiropractic is a non-invasive treatment alternative that can help to effectively alleviate the pain that surgery failed to correct.
Located between the sacrum and the ilium bones of the pelvis, the sacroiliac joint connects the pelvis to, and supports, the spine. Like other joints, the sacroiliac joint is covered by cartilage. When cartilage wears away, it causes pain in the lower back, hips, groin, and thighs. Our physicians aim to reduce inflammation in the joint and improve mobility.
Facet joints create stability and provide support for the levels of the spine. These joints can become worn or torn after constant motion, and can become inflamed. Facet syndrome can cause pain, soreness, and stiffness. A Chiropractor works to reduce inflammation at the source of the joint, allowing for increased mobility and decreased pain.
Spinal compression fractures occur when one or more bones of the spine weaken and crumple. This is often caused by a natural weakening of bone mass.
At ChiroCare of Florida, our physicians work with you to help heal the damage caused by fractures, and strengthen spinal discs so that the spine is more supported.
Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
As its name suggests, diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can occur with diabetes.
Using targeted spinal manipulation, chiropractic improves the flow of information from nerve to nerve. This increase in nerve system efficiency can help to reduce pain and lessen neuropathy symptoms.
