You already know that being in an auto accident is no fun. But it may be even less fun than you think: an auto accident injury can sometimes take days to make itself known. That's why at Walker Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we encourage everyone in Miramar to seek out a chiropractor as soon as possible after an accident.
If you've never received chiropractic care, you may be wondering what happens during your first visit. Here is what you can expect, in five easy steps.
Step 1: Tell Us About the Accident and Your Health
We'll talk about the accident--what happened, the sequence it happened in, etc. We'll also ask about your general health history, which will be important as we plan out a whole-body solution for your situation.
Step 2: Let’s Get to the Symptoms of Your Auto Accident Injury
Tell us any symptoms you are experiencing from your auto accident injury. Even minor details help paint a clearer picture for us so that we can serve you better.
Step 3: Chiropractic Exam and (Possibly) X-Rays
After talking about your health, we'll perform an exam and possibly take x-rays. The exam is completely non-invasive and will be as painless as possible. The exam will help us locate the exact location(s) that are causing your problems. It's important to note that the location of your core issue(s) may be different from where you're experiencing discomfort. A problem with a disc in your spine could be causing pain in your leg, for example.
Step 4: Pain Relief, Treatment, and Follow-Up Appointment
Finally, we'll either perform an initial treatment or schedule for a follow-up visit. For patients experiencing pain, we generally try and provide at least a bit of treatment of time allows.
