Your First Consultation After an Auto Accident Injury: What to Expect

Auto accidents are a common cause of injuries. Even if you are a seasoned and experienced driver while observing every traffic rule and regulation, you can still get into an accident at no fault of your own. Auto accidents often result in back or neck pain.

You may not experience any immediate symptoms, but some auto accident injuries are not apparent until days or weeks after the accident. It is prudent to seek the services of a reputable chiropractor after sustaining an auto accident injury, even if it was a minor auto accident. If you live in St. Paul, Lakeville, or the surrounding areas, contact our chiropractors at Lake Marion Chiropractic to schedule your first consultation.

What to Expect During Your First Consultation

Visiting an auto accident chiropractor after an auto accident should be a priority. You will increase your chances of recovery and prevent certain injuries from becoming chronic. Our chiropractors will discuss your auto accident injury, pain, and any noticeable symptoms during the first visit. We will take a medical history and perform a comprehensive examination.

The most propagated injuries from car accidents involve the neck and back. Strains and soft tissue injuries in other areas of the body, including the abdominal area, are also quite common. If you are experiencing pain, it is essential to discuss it with one of our chiropractors during your visit. We will create a customized treatment plan that is designed to provide pain relief and support the recovery process.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care after an Auto Accident

Chiropractic care provides several benefits during the recovery period after an auto accident. Some of these benefits include:

  • Reduction of pain through chiropractic adjustments. We will trigger the patient's body to release natural pain-relieving hormones.
  • Restoring your range of motion through the realignment of your spinal joints.
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Stimulating blood flow with massage therapy
  • Non-invasive treatment that avoids surgery and medication
