Frequently Asked Questions
What conditions does the Back Pain Relief Center of West Palm Beach treat?
Auto Accident Injuries, Sports Injuries and most of the aches and pains of daily life. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, joint pain in the arms or legs, and headaches. We also utilize licensed massage therapy and condition-specific physiotherapy as well as Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy and Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) for difficult, chronic pain patients.
Do you accept insurance?
We accept most major medical insurance plans as well as auto insurance benefits for those injured in a car accident. We also have reasonable cash payment plans for those without insurance who still need access to our high quality care. We will gladly verify your insurance coverage and submit all billing paperwork for you so you can focus on your health and recovery.
I suffer from headaches. Are there any alternatives to regular NSAID (Aspirin, Advil, Tylenol, etc.) use?
It is likely that a combination of chiropractic treatment and massage therapy will provide relief for your headaches. Frequently with headache patients, the vertebrae in the upper neck lose their normal range of motion and the muscles that attach to the base of the skull become overly tight and squeeze or compress the nerves that branch out over the head. This results in pain that radiates over the top or around the head and sometimes into the eyes. Conservative, gentle chiropractic care restores the vertebral range of motion, which in turn reduces the muscle tension and subsequent nerve compression, resulting in a reduction of headache pain. Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy may be used as well to relieve nerve pressure as a result of bulging or herniated discs in the cervical spine. If you suffer from headaches and/or notice stiffness in your neck, then give us a call. We offer short term, affordable relief care for your headache!

What should I do if I have been in a west palm beach auto accident?
The physicians at the Back Pain Relief Center are very experienced in diagnosing and treating the many conditions that may arise after a west palm beach auto accident. It is very important that you contact them as soon as possible after an accident so that they can examine you for injuries; some of which you may not immediately be aware of. The presentation for whiplash injuries can take weeks or months before painful symptoms appear. However, if you seek treatment promptly; pain and long-term damage can be minimized or avoided all together. The Back Pain Relief Center staff can also direct you to legal counsel if necessary to make sure that you receive all of your rightful benefits with no out of pocket expense to you.
Do I have to see my medical doctor before I see a chiropractor?
No. The Back Pain Relief Center physicians are primary health care providers. That means you do not need a referral from your family doctor to come and see us. Our physicians are skilled at examining patients for whatever may ail them and either providing same day treatment on site or referring out to an appropriate specialist if necessary. Our west palm beach chiropractors provide primary care services and will make any necessary referrals for medical services that we don’t offer in our office.
How is a chiropractic adjustment performed?
Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during years of chiropractic education. Our west palm beach chiropractors may use their hands or a mechanical instrument called an activator to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to reduce pain and enhance joint function. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. Our west palm beach chiropractors will adapt the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.
Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?
Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Our west palm beach chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle.
How safe is chiropractic treatment?
The process of chiropractic adjustment is a safe, efficient procedure which is performed nearly one million times every working day in the United States. Chiropractic care is non-invasive; therefore the body’s response to chiropractic care is far more predictable than its reactions to invasive treatments like drugs or surgical procedures.
