MedX Chiro Slip & Fall

Slip and falls are extremely common, whether due to a wet floor, an icy sidewalk, or a toy left on the ground. When it comes to safety it’s always best to be safe than sorry, but unfortunately accidents do happen no matter how careful you are. Even seemingly minor slip and fall injuries can have a serious impact on your life if left unaddressed. Chiropractic care can help treat slip and fall injuries. If you’re looking to rehabilitate your body from a slip and fall accident, Dr. Lee Perdeck at MedX Chiropractic & Injury Center can help your body heal and recover.

Dr. Perdeck also has extensive experience working with personal injury attorneys, which is why you should visit Dr. Perdeck as soon as possible following a slip and fall accident if the accident was due to negligence from another party and you’re planning on filing a personal injury suit.

Common Slip And Fall Injuries We Treat

Here are some common slip and fall injuries we treat here at MedX Chiropractic & Injury Center:

Shoulder injuries

When many people fall, they reflexively reach out with their hands to stop the fall, and sometimes they may land on their shoulder if they twist to the side. Such falls often result in a significant amount of bruising and even dislocation, which can be extremely painful.

Strains and sprains

A strain is when your muscle twists while falling, and a sprain is when a ligament is torn. Typically during a slip and fall any sprains that occur happen to the ankles.

Neck injuries

Neck pain from a neck injury may not show up right away following the accident. Sometimes, symptoms can take up to a few days before occurring. If you get into a slip and fall accident, you should see a chiropractor sooner rather than later to address any small tears in muscles and ligaments that can result in neck pain and stiffness.

Back injuries

A slip and fall can cause spinal misalignments, which may result in unbearable back pain. The fall can place extra pressure on your disks, which impacts the flexibility of your spine, along with causing soft tissue pain.
It is essential to go to a chiropractor right away after a slip and fall in order to speed along your recovery and address the extent of your injuries.

How Chiropractic Care Helps With Slip and Fall Injuries

During a slip and fall, the sudden stop at the end of the fall along with the twisting of your body as you slip can knock your spine out of position. Gentle, appropriate spinal adjustments can help adjust your spine back into the right place and allow the body to heal itself more efficiently. Depending on the severity of the slip and fall, Dr. Perdeck may take X-rays and review your current symptoms and medical history to establish a course of treatment. Dr. Perdeck can use various spinal manipulation and massage techniques to help your body heal and reduce inflammation without invasive procedures or painkillers.
