Personal Injury Treatment
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and anytime, and they result in a significant number of injuries each year. In fact, they are the second leading cause of injuries in the US. Personal injury from a slip and fall can cause both minor and major injuries. And although most slip and fall injuries are minor, a severe slip and fall injury can result in the trauma to your spine and other joints.
If you have suffered trauma from a slip or fall, you need to have your spine and other injured joints examined by a doctor of chiropractic. Any subluxations created in your spine can, and often does, remain in your body. This can prevent you from healing properly. A forgotten trip or fall may cause severe health problems later in life.
Most people associate whiplash with auto accidents, but anytime that you suddenly jerk your head, you risk suffering from this often painful condition. The sudden movement of your body can also cause your spinal discs to either rupture or bulge out of place, both of which can leave you writhing in agony. If your spine is moved in a personal injury accident like a slip and fall, it is possible that it is impinging your nerves, causing you numbness or tingling in various areas of your body.
If you’ve suffered a personal injury accident, you owe it to yourself to get a consultation with a qualified chiropractor. There could be underlying injuries that traditional medical care missed.
