Our Services

At Back to Mind we’re pleased to offer our patients a wide variety of services, tailored to meet each individual’s needs and get each patient on the road to feeling healthy and pain-free as soon as possible. For a brief description of each of our chiropractic services in Hollywood, please see below.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression

This non-surgical and non-invasive treatment is typically used to treat certain types of chronic back pain. Mechanical decompression works by slowly and gently stretching the spine, taking pressure off discs and vertebrae that have compressed. Spinal decompression is one of the most exciting medical treatments developed, since it demonstrates great results for long-term pain relief.

Vertebral Adjustments

Chiropractic Adjustment

Through a manipulation of the spinal bones, this procedure corrects the positioning and alignment of the vertebral bones. Chiropractors call this an “adjustment,” and this is what most patients think of when they think of chiropractic care. Proper vertebral alignment is very important to a patient’s general health.

Hydrotherapy

Aqua Therapy/Hydrotherapy

Designed for individuals who aren’t ready to perform rehabilitation exercises affected by gravity and weight-bearing tolerance, hydrotherapy can be a great benefit to anyone. It is a form of physical therapy that is performed in a warm-water pool, and it allows for earlier intervention, greater tolerance of activity, and easier gains in range of motion with less pain. It helps reduce impact on joints and improves overall body strength and conditioning during post-rehab. The buoyancy of the water reduces the stress of body weight on a particular area of the body.

Massage Theraphy

Massage Therapy

This well-known and much-loved form of treatment involves manipulation of the soft body tissues with physical, functional, and in some cases emotional, purposes and goals. Massage therapy clients are treated while lying on a massage table. Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound

Used by therapists since the 1940’s ultrasound treatment is applied using a round-headed wand or probe that is put in direct contact with the patient’s skin. Ultrasound gel is used on all surfaces of the head in order to reduce friction and assist in the transmission of the ultrasonic waves. The benefits of ultrasound therapy include: pain relief and increase in tissue relaxation, local blow flow, and scar tissue breakdown.

EMS Chiropractor in Hollywood

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

EMS is predominantly used by doctors and physical therapists to prevent or reduce muscle atrophy, which is the weakening and loss of muscle tone, which may be experienced after surgeries or injuries. EMS has proven to be an effective means of preventing muscle atrophy, and many doctors see it as a means of increasing blood flow to the muscles, enhancing muscle endurance, and increasing range of motion and muscle strength. EMS is used to treat muscle related pain, such as spastic, sore, or tight muscles.

Orthotics Chiropractor in Hollywood

Orthotic Inserts

For patients with a postural imbalance having a custom-fitted insole can be a great benefit. A computerized scanner scans each foot and allows the clinician and patient to see if a problem exists and, if so, to order customized insoles. Accommodative orthotics are softer and meant to provide additional cushioning and support. Functional orthotics are designed to control abnormal motion.

Range of motion analysis

Range of Motion Analysis

Before beginning any treatment, range of motion of joints is tested. This involves testing joints in the unaffected side versus the affected side and includes moving the joints through their full range of motion to assess pain, discomfort, or resistance. If your range of motion is inhibited by pain, we will be able to assess this problem using some of the latest technology.

Xrays Hollywood Chiropractor

X-Rays

X-rays are useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system, and are used to rule any of these causes out, such as broken bone, tumor, etc. They also help chiropractor’s determine where to adjust the spine. In cases where an X-ray is not sufficient and a need to view soft-tissues is needed, patients will be referred to a facility that can perform an MRI.

postural analysis

Postural Analysis

Prior to treatment, overall posture is assessed for any imbalances. Postural Analysis is a window to your spine that allows us to treat you more specifically and get the desired results earlier. The purpose of this analysis is to improve a patient’s posture and gain the benefits that better posture can bring, such as reducing strain on muscles and joints.

Functional Capacity Testing

Functional Capacity Testing

Patients need to know their limitations. Often, an employer or insurance company will ask for a report on what the patient can and cannot do on the job. If a job is physically demanding, we have the appropriate program to assess how injuries affect the different functions of the body. Certified functional capacity testers administer tests with evaluation tools and methods that are peer-reviewed, validity based and legally defensible in the field of occupational rehabilitation. All testing is performed with standardized protocols that are specific to each case in question.

Our Hollywood FL facility is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and tools required to perform all of these treatments and analyses. If you’d like more information on any of our chiropractor services or would like to get started on booking your first appointment today, please give us a call.
