Seeing a Chiropractor After a Car Accident

Getting into a car accident really messes up your back. Ever since my accident last month, I have felt like everything in my body is out of alignment. My regular doctor is great, but he said that the issues I’ve been having are outside the scope of what he’s able to treat. He recommended that I go to a chiropractor in San Jose for additional treatment. He felt that this chiropractor would be able to provide me with a few additional options that his practice could not. I took his recommendation and his referral, and I made an appointment for a consultation.

During the consultation with the doctor, we began talking about the cause of my back pain. I was stopped at a traffic light, and the person behind me fail to stop. She ran right into me going about 30 mph. My car was totaled, as was hers. She walked away without any injuries, so she was very lucky. I suppose I was fortunate as well, because I didn’t have any visible injuries. The only thing wrong with me was this excruciating pain throughout my body. Sometimes it really hurts, and other times it’s tolerable. I can really tell that something has shifted inside of me.

I told all of this to the doctor, and he told me that he was confident he would be able to help. He outlined a treatment plan, which included weekly visits to his office. He gave me a tour of the office, and described some of the things that we would work on each week. There were different apparatuses around the office, and they all had to do with overall back health. After the tour, he asked me if I had any questions, but I did not. He was really thorough in his explanation, so I felt like I had all of the information I needed.
