Your First Consultation After an Auto Accident Injury: What to Expect
If you are experiencing head, neck, or back pain as a result of whiplash or other injuries from an auto accident, consider seeking chiropractic care. Our Watertown chiropractor has many years of experience and world-class training in chiropractic care. If you have scheduled a visit with our chiropractor, here is what you can expect from your first consultation.
Like any other medical practice, our chiropractor will begin by asking you about your medical history. You should also provide a list of medications, vitamins, and other supplements you are taking since some interactions can make pain and stress worse. This information will inform our chiropractic care.
Describe Why You Are Visiting
Our chiropractor will then ask why you've chosen to visit. Often, they already know you're there for an auto accident injury. What they're trying to find out are details of that injury. Keep this in mind since you may need to describe the auto accident and exactly how you were injured in the collision. This lets our chiropractor know what to look out for in the examination that follows.
Next, you'll undergo a brief and non-intrusive examination. The goal of this exam is to make our chiropractor aware of physical complications, pain, and more. Things like muscle strength will be tested in conjunction with other aspects of your musculoskeletal system like your range of motion. This is important since our chiropractor wants to make sure your muscles and tissues are healthy and capable of supporting your body.
Finally, you and your chiropractor will discuss long-term treatment and solutions to your tissue and bone-related issues. In many cases, our chiropractor will perform basic adjustments to immediately relieve pain and stress.
