Expectations for Chiropractic Care in Portland

Getting into an auto accident or any other type of accident that results in an injury causes pain and discomfort in the body. When you feel uncomfortable or notice pain from your situation, working with a chiropractor in Portland, Oregon offers the opportunity to address the situation without using harsh medications or facing unnecessary side effects. While a treatment plan depends on your specific needs, chiropractic care helps address the underlying causes of your pain and allows you to improve your situation.

What to Expect for the First Visit

Your first visit to a chiropractor focuses on addressing the situation based on your needs. At our clinic, we offer a variety of services that help with injuries and your recovery after an accident. 

Initially, we ask basic questions about your health. At Laurelhurst Chiropractic, we realize that injuries are not always the only factor to consider when developing a treatment plan. By obtaining information about your health and your previous concerns, we have the tools to address the causes of your situation without taking unnecessary risks.

After the paperwork, a chiropractor works with you to determine the extent of your injuries. We evaluate the way that you move and hold your body throughout different movements so that we understand the severity of your injuries. We then create a treatment plan that focuses on your specific needs based on the injuries and the way that it impacts your quality of life.

Services to Help with Recovery

The services we offer to address injuries from accidents, whether in a car, at work or even around your home, depend on your specific needs. Generally, we offer chiropractic treatments that realign your spine and improve your posture.

Primary services we provide to help with injuries include:

  • Spinal decompression

  • Realignment, or spinal manipulation

  • Massage therapy, which helps with soft tissue injuries like sprains and strains

  • Acupuncture for pain relief

  • Exercise plans that help stretch the muscles and improve your mobility

  • Appropriate treatments based on the type of injuries that you suffer after an accident

Accidents cause a variety of different injuries and health concerns. In some cases, you do not notice the injuries until 24 to 48 hours after the accident. For example, you do not always notice whiplash or a strain in your back immediately after the injury. By addressing the underlying cause of the pain and recognizing that the accident contributes to the situation, we focus on treatment plans that specifically work on your recovery goals. We offer holistic treatment plans that do not cause harsh side effects or raise concerns associated with medications.

Chiropractic care offers the opportunity to improve your situation without taking unnecessary risks. When your visit our clinic in Portland, we take the time to evaluate your injuries and goals before making an appropriate treatment plan.
