FAQs About Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Grand Rapids

Man Injured From Auto Accident

If you need auto accident injury treatment in Grand Rapids, our chiropractor can help you. We can answer all of your questions, perform an examination to determine your injuries and develop a treatment program to help reduce your symptoms. Here are a few of the common questions our chiropractor in Grand Rapids receives in relation to auto accident injury treatments.

What happens to my spine when I get into an auto accident?

When you get into an auto accident, your spine is put under tremendous force. This occurs whether you are driving and hit another vehicle or object or if you are hit from behind. The impact of the accident causes your body to ricochet back and forth between your seat and your seat belt. This can causes sprains and strains to your neck and back and herniated discs. You may even develop whiplash or a pinched nerve.

What types of injuries does your Grand Rapids chiropractor treat?

Our Grand Rapids chiropractor treats herniated discs, back pain, sprains and strains of the back, whiplash and sciatica, which can all occur as the result of a car accident. You may even incur shoulder, wrist and knee injuries. Knees can become twisted or impact the dash. If you were holding onto the steering wheel or stick shift, you may experience a sprain or strain of your wrist, and your seatbelt may bruise or strain your shoulder.

What treatment options does your chiropractor in Grand Rapids offer?

The treatment options offered by our chiropractor in Grand Rapids include chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, massage therapy and corrective exercises. Chiropractic adjustments are beneficial for treating sprains and strains of the back and extremity joints as well as sciatica and herniated discs. Spinal decompression helps with herniated discs and pinched nerves. Massage therapy can be combined with chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression to help with pain relief, and corrective exercises can help you rebuild lost strength.

How many sessions will I need before I feel better?

You may feel better after a few sessions. However, most people need multiple sessions a week for several weeks before their symptoms have noticeably reduced. Our Grand Rapids chiropractor can develop a custom treatment plan that will help your body heal, and that treatment plan can be adjusted as you improve.
