What are common auto accident injuries?

  • Cuts and bruises
  • Head injuries and headaches
  • Broken bones

What can I expect when coming in for care for my accident?

Dr. Sheps is a compassionate and innovative chiropractor with three decades of experience. You can expect comprehensive care when you come in for treatment of your auto accident injury. 

During your initial visit, Dr. Sheps conducts a thorough examination to understand your injury and specific health needs. This examination may be similar to what you would expect from your primary care physician and include a review of your medical history and injury, as well as a physical exam.

To better understand your needs and the seriousness of your injury, Dr. Sheps may request diagnostic testing, such as an X-ray or MRI. 

What treatments can improve my auto accident injury?

Dr. Sheps is a renowned chiropractor and only provides chiropractic adjustments when necessary. Instead, Dr. Sheps focuses on helping you through daily self-care and rehabilitation techniques. Your treatment may include:

Rehabilitation program

Activity and exercise are a major part of Dr. Sheps’ rehabilitative program. He custom creates a strength-training program to support tissue healing and health, as well as pain relief.

Laser therapy

Dr. Sheps is considered a laser therapy expert and uses laser energy to support your body’s healing powers. During treatment, the laser energy reduces tissue inflammation and stimulates the cells to accelerate the healing of your damaged tissue.

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy is an advanced healing tool that uses acoustic pressure to help heal your injury. Much like laser therapy, the sound produced with shockwave therapy reduces inflammation at the site of your injury and activates the cells to regenerate new tissue, repairing and replacing what’s been damaged.

Auto injuries are common and require proper care to ensure a full and quick recovery. For expert care of your auto accident injury, contact Michael Sheps, DC, by phone or online today.
