Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care is generally considered a safe, effective treatment for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from moving furniture or getting tackled.
Come see us! We are experienced with car accident victims!
There are 2 important things you must know about chiropractic care if you are in an auto accident:
- your chiropractic care is FREE if someone hits you! You don’t have to pay for your treatments.
- your chiropractic care is GENTLE. Combined with soothing massage therapy and the gentleness of our chiropractors, you will love how our care will make you feel better.
It is imperative that you seek medical attention immediately afterward since the effects of lower back pain can induce long-term back pain. Call of office at 336.303.1512 immediately if you have been in an auto accident.
What to Expect On Your 1st Visit
Firstly, the chiropractor will do a complete examination of your spine and back regions to determine the extent of any damage. Lower back injury is certainly the most common ailment but other injuries to the spine could also exist. The examination will include studying areas of restricted movement, spinal alignment and overall posture.
Additionally, the examination will include your past medical history so you will want to be prepared to provide this on your 1st visit.
Next, the chiropractor will determine a treatment plan for your particular situation. This could include a combination of gentle spinal manipulations (adjustments), gentle massage therapy and other modalities (heat therapy, ice therapy, etc.). Your treatment plan could also include a plan for preventative care going forward including proper nutrition and therapeutic exercises to help improve the overall range of motion in the back.
The treatment plan listed above is merely an example of a possible treatment plan for your lower back pain. Your actual treatment plan will depend upon your diagnosis and the severity of your back pain. Your chiropractor will thoroughly explain your treatment options to you so that you know exactly what to expect.
