What You Can Expect As A New Patient

Frequently Asked Questions

In preparation for your Free Chiropractic Consultation, you will be asked to complete forms that provide background information about your medical history, condition, and symptoms you are currently experiencing.

Some of the questions included are:

  1. When and how did the pain start?
  2. Where is it located?
  3. What activities or circumstances make it better or worse?
  4. Did the pain start as a result of an injury? It is crucial to know if the physical damage resulted directly from the Car Accident.
  5. Describe the pain - is it sharp, dull, burning, or throbbing? Does it come and go, or is it continual?

The Exam with our local Athens Chiropractor

Once we know more about your medical history, the doctor will conduct a precise chiropractic exam that includes comprehensive tests such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and reflexes, as well as specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess:

  1. Range of motion of the affected part
  2. Postural Stability
  3. Muscle strength
  4. Neurological integrity
  5. Muscle tone

Diagnostic Studies Which Provide Necessary Detail on How to Correct Your Pain Condition

Based on the results of your chiropractic exam and previous medical history, diagnostic studies are helpful in identifying structural abnormalities to more accurately diagnose your condition and provide compelling evidence to the insurance company why and where you need Chiropractic Treatment after an Auto Accident.

The most common diagnostic studies during your chiropractic exam include:

  • An X-ray exam
  • Other laboratory tests if necessary and potential outside referral for an MRI 

Goals and Report of Findings

Dr. Pampena at our Athens location will establish specific goals based on your X-ray and Exam Findings for your individualized plan of care:

  • Short-term goals include lessening pain and restoring normal joint function and muscle balance.
  • Long-term goals are about reacquiring functional independence and tolerance to normal activities of daily living.

Based on your unique situation, Dr. Pampena will determine how often you should come in to be treated. Sometimes it may be one time a week or it can be multiple times per week when you are in your acute treatment phase.

Whether you are a new walk-in patient dealing with back pain or someone who was recently injured in an auto accident, Dr. Pampena is able to help diagnose your condition and provide the right treatments to get you out of pain.

We achieve these results not with harmful muscle relaxers or potent narcotics but with spinal decompression therapy that uses intermittent spinal traction to take the stress off injured vertebral joints while concurrently hydrating your discs, Chiropractic Adjustments to facilitate proper motion in the joints, electrical stimulation to reduce muscular and nerve pain in localized areas and much more.

Some of those spinal manipulation techniques might include: 

Flexion-distraction technique- is a gentle, hands-on spinal-manipulation that involves a pumping action on the intervertebral disc instead of direct force. 

Instrument-assisted manipulation-uses a hand-held instrument to allow your chiropractor to apply force without thrusting into the spine. 

Specific spinal manipulation-helps restore joint movement using a gentle thrusting technique.

In addition to easing your pain, chiropractic treatment can also boost your immune system, erase dozens of diseases from the source, increase your energy, add years onto your life, and promote your health and level of fitness. 

Being involved in a vehicle collision can put unwanted pressure on our delicate nerves and can even diminish nerve flow to the limbs and vital organs.

Once our nervous system is compromised, any function of the human body is at risk and can cause further complications.

From movement, blinking, and heartbeat, to regulation of hormones, breathing, and vision. And even worse if left untreated depleted nerve energy will lead to pain, fatigue, organ dysfunction and eventually disease.  

By realigning the spine back to health, and taking unnecessary pressure off the nerves, patients experience almost immediate pain relief, and more significant experience vitality, feeling of healthiness and increased energy.

Adjusting a spinal joint may (but not always) result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints called a cavitation, which makes a popping sound.

The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles.

This natural noise is caused by a sudden decrease in pressure within the joint, which results in dissolved gasses in the joint fluid to be released. It is completely harmless.
