There is no question that an auto accident probably rates quite high on most people's list of “worst things that can happen to a person.” However, as scary as the prospect of an accident is, it's often the aftermath of an accident that turns into the most painful episode to overcome.
One of the reasons for this is that many people fail to realize that injuries don’t always show up right away when an accident occurs. They continue to behave as they normally would in their post-accident activities, which may result in exacerbating a minor injury and making it much worse. No matter how minor the car accident, it’s important to get an overall check-up and x-rays to ensure that there are no injuries which, left untreated, can be the source of premature arthritis, degeneration and significantly affect your future health and wellness.
At Chiropractic First in Wyoming, Michigan, we know how to diagnose and treat injuries sustained in a car accident. In fact, body alignment is Dr. James Heath’s specialty. Dr. Heath has been providing comprehensive chiropractic care for individuals and families in the Wyoming, Grand Rapids and Kentwood areas since 1998. His approach to health, wellness and pain management always focuses on treatment of the “whole person” instead of concentrating merely on symptoms.
After an accident, Dr. Heath’s goal is, of course, to provide a way to heal as completely and quickly as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, because of the nature of many accident-induced injuries that are left untreated, pain or discomfort becomes an ongoing problem. By looking not only at the injury itself but at the effects of the injury on the overall physical and emotional health of the patient, Dr. Heath is able to craft a customized plan for long-term pain relief, healing of the injury and effective health maintenance. To help give you a better idea of how this type of wellness and pain management is achieved, here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding services that a caring, skilled chiropractor like Dr. Heath, can provide in the wake of a car accident:
One of the most common injuries in car accidents is Whiplash. This can occur when the spine is suddenly thrust forward, as happens when a stationary object is hit by a moving vehicle. Through a series of chiropractic adjustments and physical exercises prescribed by the doctor, the spine can eventually be brought back into alignment, mobility restored and proper healing of the injured tissues. Chiropractic adjustments may also be used to treat injuries anywhere in the spine that result from car accidents.
One of the main reasons that the chiropractic profession has grown so rapidly over the past 20 years is that it has the ability to not just help alleviate the pain but it gets to the cause of the pain. When regular chiropractic adjustments are performed, function of the spine is improved and the body heals more correctly, taking pressure off the nerves that goes to vital organs and tissues, thus improving your health in the process.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Chiropractic First offers a wide range of treatments that aim to provide healthy relief to patients in a holistic way: healing the mind, body and spirit. Available treatments include:
