Merritt Island Chiropractic Center Announces Physical Therapy Treatment

MERRITT ISLAND, FL--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2012) - Spine Center of Brevard in Merritt Island, FL announced that the practice has had great success using a combination of chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy modalities to help patients recover from injuries. Chiropractors Dr. Joshua Flinn, Dr. Bill Hoffman and Dr. Alison Nida focus on correcting the underlying cause for musculoskeletal pain, including back pain, headaches and neck pain. According to Dr. Flinn, physical therapy treatments can help restore movement, flexibility and coordination to the body.

Merritt Island chiropractor Dr. Joshua Flinn announced that the Spine Center of Brevard offers therapy treatments in combination with chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. "Physical therapy treatments naturally complement our mission to take spine care into the 21st Century," said Dr. Flinn. "Our 'treat and release' program helps patients heal by correcting the underlying cause for their back pain so they can continue leading active lives. Just as chiropractic adjustments bring restore movement alignment back to the musculoskeletal system, physical therapy treatments promote healing and help restore a full range of movement in the body."

Rehabilitative exercises, also known as corrective care exercises, are designed to strengthen the body's core, restoring flexibility, movement and coordination. "Following an injury, patients may experience soreness or stiffness in the body," said Dr. Flinn. "These exercises are designed to reverse this soreness by safely helping the body recover its natural range of motion."

In addition to rehabilitative exercises, patients may also benefit from physical medicine modalities that promote internal healing. Treatments offered by the practice include muscle stimulation and ultrasound.

Dr. Flinn has been helping auto accident victims and sports injury patients since 2005. He holds an advanced certification in the treatment of auto injuries, including whiplash, biomechanics and traumatology. Together with chiropractor Dr. Hoffman and chiropractor Dr. Nida, Dr. Flinn is active in the local community, working to expand awareness about natural pain relief and injury recovery.

"Our mission is simple: to show patients that it is possible to heal following personal injuries," Dr. Hoffman said. "Back pain from a sports injury or neck pain from a whiplash injury can keep the body from moving naturally. Physical therapy treatments correct this by restoring natural motion."

Dr. Nida concurred, "Whether you have suffered a sports injury or car accident injury, we recognize that there is nothing more frustrating than being unable to live an active life. This can be especially challenging for athletic patients -- no one should be on the sidelines. That's why combining chiropractic and physical therapy treatments are so important. They help our patients get back in the game quickly and safely."
