Being involved in a car accident can result in a great deal of pain. There are some injuries that cause the pain to begin immediately while the pain with other types of injuries is delayed. If you were in an accident and you are suffering from an auto accident injury that is affecting your neck or back, you should see a chiropractor. A chiropractor can help to alleviate the pain without the use of medication. In many cases, you will start feeling better after your very first visit. If this is going to be your first visit to the chiropractor, you should know what to expect.
It is a good idea to arrive at the office 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment because there will be plenty of paperwork. This includes a questionnaire designed to assess your overall health, your medical history, and the injury that you sustained during the accident. There will also be questions regarding your job and any activities that exacerbate your pain.
During your first appointment, the chiropractor will perform a physical exam. This will give the chiropractor a chance to measure your muscles strength, assess your range of motion, and measure your reflexes. They will also pay close attention to the areas where you are feeling pain. The chiropractor may also order an x-ray. This would give them a chance to check for any abnormalities.
When the chiropractor has completed the physical exam, you will have your first adjustment. This will be done on a table specifically designed for chiropractic adjustments. In most cases, you will feel relief immediately.
After your adjustment, your chiropractor will create a treatment plan. They will let you know how often you should be seen and what they hope to accomplish over a certain period of time.
If you are suffering from an auto accident injury, a chiropractor can help with the pain. At NuView Health Medical in New York, your first adjustment should help with some of the pain. In time, you should be completely free from pain.
