Whether you slip on some ice, trip on a rug, or miss a stair, you should seek chiropractic treatment right away. Many long-term afflictions stem from this sort of personal injury. Your neck and back are at risk! Reach out to your local chiropractic office as soon as possible.
Injured Areas After a Slip and Fall Accident
When you suffer a slip and fall accident, the commonly injured areas are your back and neck. This is because you often land in these areas, causing your spine to shift out-of-place. You should call our office immediately. Your chiropractor has experience treating a variety of conditions, including lower/upper back and cervical impairments! Here are a few other personal injuries that we care for:
- Strains and sprains
- Disc Herniation
- Bruised ribs
- Tingling or pins-and-needles sensations in a body part
- Hurt ligaments
These injuries generate a lot of pain and discomfort. Before seeking out over-the-counter or prescription medication, schedule a consultation. We offer holistic and natural treatments that get the job done!
Chiropractic Treatment for Your Injuries
There’s no need to worry before your appointment. It’s recommended that you write any questions or concerns beforehand, along with a list of your symptoms. This guarantees all your apprehensions are addressed.
The appointment starts with a brief history of your injury. You should also provide any relevant medical information, like any other back or spinal conditions. The hurt area, most likely the spine and neck, is then evaluated. In many cases, a spinal disc has moved out-of-place. This pinches and irritates the nerves, creating back spasms and major discomfort. The first step is to realign the spine. Using either their hands or a small tool, your chiropractor moves the disc back into place. It is a quick and painless process! From there, we decide on other techniques to aid your recovery. The severity of the injury determines the treatment. Treatment ranges from things like therapeutic exercise to weekly chiropractic maintenance.
