Your initial appointment will consist of an comprehensive examination and a review of your medical history, including any injuries you may have sustained in your accident. You may then be x-rayed to check for spinal subluxations or injuries that may or may not have begun causing pain or muscle stiffness. Your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan for you based on the results of your exam. It is likely to include frequent spinal adjustments and possibly some physio-therapy or spinal decompression. Your chiropractor believes that active therapy along with passive therapy, massage and acupuncture will all help you to quickly recover from the pain you are experiencing.
