Assessment for an Auto Accident Injury
With an auto accident injury, you will want to bring any imaging you have already done because of the accident. This accident will help the evaluation process, and imaging won't have to be duplicated. If you are taking pain medication, or working with other treatment providers, this information is helpful in your assessment. You will talk about your symptoms, and what you have been doing so far to heal. Any recent medical history that might worsen symptoms will be discussed. Wear comfortable clothing, as you will likely have treatment after your assessment.
Chiropractic Care for an Auto Accident Injury
You can expect to see the chiropractor several times weekly as your therapy starts. If you have whiplash, supportive neck, and shoulder muscle therapies can help relieve the injury. Although chiropractic adjustments often provide injury relief, it takes time for the adjustments to remain permanent. In addition, you will discover that the adjustments go back out of alignment if you don't heal the muscles and ligaments holding them in place. As you recover with the help of a chiropractor in Abington, PA, you will start to taper down your visits until you are scheduled once a month or so.
