What to Expect During Auto Accident Treatment
We know you have a choice of medical providers after an auto accident. Let us tell you why chiropractic should be your first choice after a car crash.
Traditional doctors focus on masking pain so your body can heal, using pain medication. Yet we know that masking the symptoms of your pain does not really relieve your pain. It only camouflages the pain temporarily. When you stop using the drugs, you will still be in pain.
At First Chiropractic, we see things differently. We believe the best way to relieve auto accident pain is to treat the injuries directly, at the root. When you see us, we will diagnose your injuries. We may take x-rays or perform tests to figure out where and how severely you are injured. We will discuss any findings with you. After all, it is your body and we want you to have a complete and accurate picture of your health and injuries. We always leave time for patients to ask questions.
Moving into treatment, we strive to provide natural inflammation and pain relief through gentle adjustments. We may use our hands or special instruments that let us make precise adjustments. These adjustments do not hurt; in fact, many patients say adjustments relieve deep-seated muscle tension and blockages. Our adjustments improve circulation in injured tissue, which cleans the site and allows recovery to begin. Over the course of several weeks, we will make adjustments to bring your spine, joints, ligaments, and bones back into proper alignment. The time frame this takes depends on your injuries, but we will give you an estimate during the initial evaluation so you can prepare.
We then strengthen your body using corrective exercises and nutritional supplements. When you have healed, we will pass on wellness information and lifestyle advice, so you can remain healthy.
