Your First Consultation after an Auto Accident Injury: What to Expect
If you were recently involved in an auto accident that inflicted an injury, finding treatment for any pain and discomfort you are experiencing is sure to be foremost on your mind. Calling Oxford Rehabilitation Center in Philadelphia to make an appointment with our chiropractor for consultation is an option available. Here is some information about what you can expect during your first visit to our practitioner.
Have Necessary Documentation Ready
Bring along any documentation given to you by your primary doctor and/or the hospital that had treated you right after the accident happened. If you have been seeing a doctor regularly, have them send all updated information to our chiropractor as this helps provide you with the best treatment for the ailments you are suffering from. Be sure to alert us of any medication prescribed as well.
An Assessment Will Be Conducted
Our chiropractor will ask you to perform a few simple tasks to find out the range of motion you have in affected areas of your body. This will also alert our chiropractor about your threshold for pain and what sections of your body are causing pain. This information is beneficial in pinpointing the exact areas to treat so you obtain the best possible results with your appointments.
A Treatment Plan Will Be Devised
After our practitioner has a chance to assess your injuries, they will administer gentle manipulation movements of the spinal area and spots near the injured portions of your body. These adjustments will not hurt and may provide you with instant relief after they are conducted. Our chiropractor also uses temperature therapy, massage, electric stimulation of affected muscles, and exercise programs to strengthen affected areas as needed. Our practice uses non-invasive measures without the use of medication.
