Your First Consultation After an Auto Accident Injury with our Greenwood Village Chiropractor
When you have a car accident, it’s important to see a chiropractor for an evaluation right away – even if you don’t have any obvious symptoms. That’s because your vertebrae or joints may have been put out of alignment. This sort of injury can take months or even longer to show symptoms, but by then, serious internal changes may have come about. It’s far better to be seen, and if necessary, treated, before this has a chance to happen.
What Should You Expect at Your First Chiropractic Consultation?
Your initial consultation will include a variety of basic practices. You’ll be asked for your medical history, the details of the accident, and the details of any symptoms you already have. You should be sure to tell our doctor about all physical changes, even if they seem insignificant. They can be indicators of problems in the spine or elsewhere.
Once this phase ends, we’ll take X-rays and perform an exam. This will let us know what, if any, problems have arisen due to your collision.
What Happens Next?
After your consultation and exam, we’ll determine whether or not you have suffered an auto accident injury. If so, we use a variety of methods to get you back to good health. These include spinal manipulation, adjustments, spinal decompression, massage, and more. These will be parts of an individualized treatment plan devised just for you.
If we find any injuries that cannot be treated with chiropractic services, such as broken bones, we’ll refer you to the appropriate specialist to have those injuries treated. We’ll then create a treatment plan to treat the rest of your injuries that works with any other treatments you are getting.
In the event that we find no significant injuries, no treatment will be needed. However, we may suggest a follow-up visit just to be sure that nothing emerges later on.
