If you are or have been involved in some type of slip and fall accident, the chances of you straining or breaking one of your limbs significantly increase because of the way in which you fall. If you happen to slip and fall forward, your body is naturally inclined to put your arms and hands out to cushion yourself. This type of reaction can leave you with a sprained wrist or a broken arm, depending on the extent of the fall. Conversely, falling backward tends to see people landing on the back of their head, causing a concussion, or some type of back and neck injury.
As chiropractic care focuses on problems with the musculoskeletal system, as well as the nervous system, it is uniquely suited to treat common slip and fall injuries, including sprains strains, joint pain, nerve pain, sciatica, neck pain, whiplash and back pain.
Our chiropractic doctors only use safe, natural and non-invasive treatment techniques. All our adjustment methods effectively alleviate pain and increase range of motion and the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
In addition to treating structures of the spine, chiropractic care is also used to treat injuries to the knees, ankles, elbows, wrists, and shoulders, which are parts of the body commonly injured during slip and fall accidents.
