Common Conditions a Chiropractor Treats

A personal injury can result in headaches, migraines, lower back pain, shoulder pain, poor mobility, and pain in your neck. Chiropractic care works by getting your spine in alignment and supporting the tissue that keeps your spine in place. When you are hurt in an accident and looking for natural pain relief, it's time to see a chiropractor that will manage your symptoms.

Preparing for Your Initial Consultation

Your first consultation with a chiropractor after a personal injury will involve an examination to check your strength, range of motion, and pain level. If you have any imaging done because of your injuries, bring the records with you to the appointment. If you have insurance information, this is important to bring to the consultation as well. Once your evaluation is over, it is possible that treatment will begin that day.

Treatment Modalities Used in Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustments using an activator, specialized table, or body movements are a big part of your treatment with a chiropractor. You may also receive decompression techniques if there is an area of your spine that is compressed because of your injuries. Stretching is often used to reduce strain on the patient’s back, while ultrasound therapy helps improve circulation in your soft tissue. Your chiropractor will talk to you about the different treatments used and answer any questions you may have during your session. Once your spine is properly aligned, you may find pain relief almost immediately.
