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

January 12, 20242 min read

Have you been involved in a car accident in or around Puyallup? If so, you may be feeling a variety of symptoms. Neck pain, back pain, and headaches are just a few of the common complaints following an auto accident. It's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident to get relief from your symptoms. The next step is to schedule a consultation with our chiropractor at Health First Chiropractic to help you develop a treatment plan.

8 Reasons

Your Medical History

Our chiropractor will ask about your medical history and the details of the accident. We may also ask about any prior injuries or accidents before that. Remember to be as detailed and honest as possible. Tell our chiropractor about your current symptoms, how long you've been experiencing them and how they have impacted your life. This information will help Dr. Croxford develop a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs.

A Physical Examination

After going over your medical history, our chiropractor will perform a physical examination to assess the extent of your injuries. This may include tests such as range of motion testing and palpation. We may also order x-rays or other imaging tests to get a better idea of your condition and identify any areas that may be causing your pain.

Creating a Treatment Plan

Once the chiropractor has gathered all of the necessary information, we will be able to create a treatment plan specifically for you. The treatment plan may include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and exercises. Additionally, we may recommend lifestyle changes such as improving your diet and exercising regularly.
