Whiplash injuries create such a force in the spine it is difficult for injury not to occur. Think of how bad a vehicle is damaged after a car wreck, the person or people inside the car should definitely be evaluated for injuries. 

Most patients report some of the following benefits of going to a chiropractor for pain management after being involved in a car accident. 

  • Decreased dependence on pain medicine or anti-inflammatories. People get tired of just taking medication to feel better; going to a car accident chiropractor allows their injuries to get fixed and not just get the band-aid care that mainstream medicine provides. 
  • Patient wants to get back to pre-accdient status.  Dr. Hamel always encourages his patients to get back to feeling like they were before the whiplash injury; at least as close to a 100% as possible.  Car wreck victims want to be able to live an active, pain free lifestyle; and they deserve this says Dr. Hamel.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment For a Car Accident Injury

Going to see a car accident chiropractor in Kingwood is not all that different than the process of going to a regular doctor appointment in terms of what to expect. Here is a snapshot of what people can expect at their first appointment from Dr. Hamel:

Review patient history. It is critical for Dr. Hamel to do a thorough intake of patient history, get details about the car accident, the speed of the collision, did the air bags go off, did the patient have to go to the emergency room afterwards, was the car totalled?.
Identify of the problem. Patients should be as specific as possible in relaying to their chiropractor such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, the severeity and frequency of the pain.  This information is important when sending in all of the documents to insurance companies; they want to see how the patient is progressing through their car accident treatment. Dr. Hamel will conduct a thorough exam, orthopedic tests, thermal scans, muscle testing and more to determine the extent of the injuries and how long it will take to get the patient out of pain and enjoying life again. 

Describe your symptoms in detail. The more detail the better when it comes to symptoms; with whiplash injuries sometimes the patient might not notice all of their symptoms until a week or more after the car crash.  As a car accident chiropractor, Dr. Hamel wants to know if the patient is able to work, do they need to take prescription medication to get through the day, how is the pain affective their daily activities. 

Why does the patient want to get better. Most car accident patients definitely want to get out of pain, that makes sense.  Each individual patient ultimately wants to get back to feeling like they did before they were involved in their car wreck.  For some this may be golfing every day, going to the gym 4X per week, coaching their kids baseball team, being able to do a physical job or just enjoying their retirement being able to garden or go on hikes. 

What is the treatment plan. With all the previous pieces of information, Dr. Hamel can begin to understand the patient's condition and build a customized treatment plan that will specifically address their injuries as well as help them meet their treatment goals. Often times with car accident patients; their injuries are substantial and they need comprehnsive chiropractic treatments.  Initially Dr. Hamel will recommend seeing the patient at least 3X per week to help get the spine realigned, take pressure off of muscles and nerves and allow the patient's body to start healing.  Once the patient is more stable they require less frequent chiropractic care and eventually they will be released when they feel they are back to pre-accident status.
