Here at Brevard Therapy & Physical Medicine, we specialize in chiropractic adjustments.
A chiropractic adjustment can make you feel so much better. Your body does not want to be out of alignment, and that’s exactly what an adjustment can help address. It is also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. The adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae that have abnormal movements and are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in fixing these issues.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve this pain and get you back to being pain free every single day.
A chiropractic adjustment involves high velocity thrusts applied to the vertebra, relieving sensation, discomfort, and spasms in the surrounding muscles. It also releases joint cavitation, which is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.
Although many people visit their chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid any pain in the future and will keep your body feeling great all day long.
If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may actually help. Your body will feel much better, which will naturally improve your mood.
If you have any questions about chiropractic adjustments, contact us today at (321) 751-5351.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
Trigger Point Injections
Here at Brevard Therapy & Physical Medicine, we are proud to offer trigger point injections for patients struggling with fibromyalgia, tension headaches, myofascial pain, and muscle pain in the arms, legs, lower back and neck.
During your appointment, we will locate the area where you are experiencing pain and inject small amounts of anesthetic and steroid to help alleviate your symptoms.
This procedure is safe and the risk of possible complications is very low. You may experience soreness or numbness at the injection site for a temporary period of time. While you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days, you should be able to actively use your muscles immediately following treatment.

Brevard Therapy & Physical Medicine offers ultrasound therapy to minimize muscle pain and movement dysfunction. It is part of the treatment process that will be evaluated by Brevard Therapy & Physical Medicine upon your initial visit. Ultrasound therapy has proven results to help with various conditions you might suffer from. It is a helpful device to correct spinal joint misalignments and restore the nervous system to its optimal function.
What are the benefits of Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound therapy has been known to increase tissue relaxation, stimulate local blood flow and aid in scar tissue breakdown. Local blood flow has been known to help reduce swelling and chronic inflammation by delivering more nutrients to the infected area. The treatments may help reduce stiffness, swelling and pain while increasing circulation and promoting a pain-free movement. While studies are still being done to test the effectiveness of these treatments, many people find them helpful in reducing pain and speeding the healing process. While ultrasound therapy is not effective for all chronic pain, it may help reduce your pain if you suffer from any of the following conditions:
- Myofascial pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Pain caused by scar tissue
- Phantom limb pain
- Sprains and strains
Electric Muscle Stimulation
Electric muscle stimulation is a form of electrical therapy used to relieve pain, accelerate the healing process, and stimulate deep-lying muscle tissue. This treatment can be beneficial for patients with circulatory and muscular disorders, stiffness of joints, and inflammation.
Benefits of Electric Muscle Stimulation
- Accelerated Healing
- Improved Circulation
- Pain Relief
- Reduction in Swelling and Inflammation
How does Electric Muscle Stimulation work?
During treatment, two different frequencies work together to successfully stimulate larger and deeper muscle fibers. These impulses are not painful at all, but some patients do report a slight tingling sensation.
For patients who are recovering from injuries or experiencing chronic pain and/or discomfort from musculoskeletal conditions, Electric muscle stimulation may be right for you. For more information on Electric muscle stimulation or to schedule a consultation, contact our office at (321) 751-5351.
