Dr. Laura Hochstein was born and raised in Broward County and is excited to return to the South Florida community to treat patients after completing her studies at Life University in Georgia. Dr. Hochstein dreamt of following her fathers’ footsteps from a young age and studied pre-med, receiving a Bachelor of Science in biology before completing her Doctorate of Chiropractic. One of Dr. Hochstein’s earliest memories is greeting patients at County Line’s front desk as a child while watching her father, Dr. Robert Hochstein, build the practice from the ground up concentrating on quality family and patient care. When Dr. Hochstein is not in the office or continuing her research in holistic medicine, she enjoys attending Heat and Dolphins games, traveling to theme parks and finding ways to use food as medicine. | view full bio

What Chiropractic Treatments Are Available in Fort Lauderdale?
Research suggests that chiropractic treatment can speed up the recovery process after an automobile accident.
Our East Fort Lauderdale accident injury clinic chiropractors build a customized care plan for each patient to reap the maximum benefits from their chiropractic care. They do this by gathering patient medical history, x-rays, vitals, and use this information to document progress during recovery.
We use a technique called spinal manipulation to take pressure off the joints and use massage therapy to reduce inflammation. This has been shown to decrease pain and improve patient nerve function. We also offer a wide variety of natural treatment techniques including:
- Kinesio Taping (KT) – Mimics the physical qualities of skin and is used to alleviate pressure from the injured area by creating interstitial space between skin and muscle. KT is used to treat injuries, support weakened areas, reducate muscles and enhance performance by protecting against injuries.
- Adjustment – It’s a procedure in which a chiropractor uses their hands to apply controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint which results in proper alignment of the spine. A chiropractic adjustment may help with the root of pain from car accidents like whiplash, pinched nerves and more.
- Physical therapy – Includes sets of exercises to help strengthen a weakened muscle, relieve pain, improve movements and range of motion, gain confidence post injury or surgery and more. It’s an intermediate step that is recommended for people who have been in a car accident, borke their limbs, fell or lost range of motion for various reasons.
- Ultrasound – A method during which high-frequency sound waves produce images of structures in your body that help diagnose different conditions.
- Electrical Muscle Stimulation- Stimulation that creates muscle contractions which can be fast or have long pauses or be quick and frequent. It is identical to natural muscle contractions and your brain can’t tell the difference. Electrical stimulation is used to help with pain management, to increase blood flow, speed up injury recovery, warm up and more.
There are several methods that our chiropractors use depending on the patient’s severity of injury and range of motion.
Chiropractic care can also provide relief for a vast number of conditions that affect the spine, muscles, and/or connective tissue.
Types of Injuries and Pain a Chiropractor Can Help With
- Neck Pain -Car accident doctors can help with your neck pain after a car accident. This type of pain may be sharp or dull and may not come until days or even weeks after your accident. A chiropractic adjustment will return your back to proper alignment and will take pressure off the nerves.
- Back Pain – Whether it’s lower back pain or upper back pain, a chiropractic adjustment can help. During a car accident, you experience jerking shifts into different directions which may cause misalignment and pinched nerves. Your spine controls much of your body so if your back is misaligned, you may experience pain in other parts of your body as well.
- Tension Headaches and Migraine – After a car accident, you may experience some pain in your back which in return causes bad posture. Bad posture can lead to tension headaches. An accident rehab doctor can adjust your spine and release the pressure from your nerves that cause your tension headaches and migraine.
- Shoulder Pain – During a car accident, you may also injure your shoulder. A chiropractor can help with your shoulder pain through a series of specific stretches.
- Knee Pain – Pain in your knees may be caused by a car accident. A chiropractor can help with your knee pain through a series of stretches and adjustments.

- Asses the situation - Even a minor car accident can quickly become dangerous because of moving traffic and pain you may not feel right away. You may be experiencing shock, therefore it is important to take a moment and assess the situation. Once you do so, either move your car over to the side of the road, stay in your car or leave the car and move over to the side. Make sure your passengers do so safely as well.
- Check for injury - Understand the extent of your own injuries and the injuries of your passengers and others involved after the car accident. If you are severely injured, then it is best not to move.
- Dial Emergency Services - Once you can safely do so, dial 911. Do not admit fault.
- Seek Medical Help - In the moment after a car accident, you may not feel like anything is wrong, but that feeling may be misleading. Make sure to seek medical help and retain all your paperwork and bills.
- Record Evidence - If you are not immediately taken to the hospital, gather evidence at the scene as much as you can. Take videos, photographs, gather footage from the dashcam (yours or someone else's that may have recorded the moment of the accident)
- Gather Contact Information - Talk to the witnesses and gather personal information from others involved in the accident. Document all of that information.
- Call Legal Help - Call a car accident lawyer to understand your rights. They may advise you to not contact your car insurance right away. Contact Insurance - If you are not working with a lawyer, contact your insurance and let them know what happened.
- Call County Line Chiropractors - Call County Line Chiropractors to receive non-invasive medical help after your car accident injuries. We will examine you and create a care plan designed specifically to treat the source of your pain. Remember that you may not feel pain immediately following the car accident, but that does not mean that you are not injured. Some symptoms may occur days, weeks or sometimes even months later.
