Lasting Treatment for a Slip and Fall Injury with Chiropractic Care
If you have experienced a slip and fall and you need treatment for your pain, let Stewart Clinic of Chiropractic help you. Our Chiropractor, Dr. Brett Stewart and the whole chiropractic team want you to know that if you have experienced a slip and fall injury, chiropractic care should be your next stop after seeing a personal injury lawyer.
Common Slip and Fall Injuries
Whether it’s from a wet floor or an icy sidewalk, slips and falls are common. Here are some of the most common injuries:
Shoulder Injuries – When a person falls, their instinct is to reach out their hands to catch themselves. Another common occurrence when slipping is to land on your shoulder. Both can result in dislocation and a lot of bruising which can be extremely painful.
Neck Injuries – Neck pain seldom shows up immediately after a fall. Symptoms sometimes take a few hours to several days to appear. However, the small tears in ligaments and muscles caused by a fall can trigger stiffness and neck pain that becomes chronic. To avoid this, you need to visit us sooner than later.
Back Injuries – A slip or fall can cause spinal misalignments that lead to unbearable back pain. This can also put added pressure on the discs in your back, affecting spinal flexibility and soft tissue pain.
Strains and Sprains – twists that occur when falling can cause strains and sprains. The ankle is the most likely part of the body to suffer a sprain or strain.
Chiropractic care for slips and falls treats:
- Strains and Sprains
- Back pain
- Shoulder and neck injuries
- Bruised ribs
- Nerve-related numbness
- Tingling sensation
How Chiropractic Care Helps Slip and Fall Injuries
A slip and fall often knocks a person’s spine out of its proper position. Dr. Stewart uses gentle spinal adjustments to realign your spine, which in turn allows your body to heal itself more quickly.
Depending on the severity of the fall, we may need to take x-rays to ensure nothing is broken. If there are no breaks, we review the scans along with your medical history to determine the best course of treatment to help you live more pain-free.
