Automobile Injury Chiropractic Services
According to estimates by the National Safety Council, more than 12 million automobile accident-related injuries occur in the United States every year. This number is staggering, especially since experts claim that there are almost as many cars on the road as there are people in the United States.
Although many injuries, such as a broken bone, are immediately apparent, there are certain injuries that may not manifest until a few weeks or several months after the accident. A whiplash car accident, for example, may not result in debilitating neck pain until a few months after the accident, making it difficult to seek early treatment. If you or a loved one was recently involved in a vehicular accident, it’s a good idea to set an appointment with a car accident chiropractor.

What to Expect During Your Visit
When you visit us for the very first time, you will be asked to fill out a patient information form similar to one that you would expect from any healthcare facility. You will be asked to provide information as accurately as possible to help give our chiropractors a better idea of your overall health and well-being.
Once you’re done, our chiropractor will conduct an initial interview of what is troubling you. You will be asked about what symptoms you are experiencing and whatever details of the accident that you can provide, among other things. For this, you may want to bring any medical certificates that you were issued after the car accident.
Our chiropractor will then examine you to see if your particular injury will respond well to automobile injury chiropractic care. This exam may test your range of motion, muscle tone, muscle strength, and neurological integrity. X-rays, MRIs, or other laboratory tests may be necessary. If you have already undergone such tests, kindly bring the results with you.
Based on the results of the interview and exam, our chiropractor will develop a personalized chiropractic treatment plan that best addresses your injury and works best for your body type. Our chiropractor will also provide you an estimate of how many treatment sessions you’ll need and how frequently you will need them.
