Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall accidents do not just happen to the elderly, and they don’t just happen in the winter on icy pavement. In fact, millions of people are treated in the emergency room every year for injuries that occurred as a result of a slip and fall. Whether you trip on an uneven sidewalk or slip on an unmarked wet floor while shopping, slip and fall accidents can result in back and neck injuries that can leave you suffering for a long time after the fall.

If you find yourself in the uncomfortable predicament of having sustained an injury due to a slip and fall accident, it’s important that you get past your bruised ego and take action to care for your physical injuries. Our team at Freedom Chiropractic in Delray Beach wants to help you.

Here are some immediate steps you should take if you’ve had a slip and fall accident:

  • Seek Treatment: Depending on the seriousness of your injury, this could look like a trip to the emergency room, urgent care clinic, or an appointment at Freedom Chiropractic. Sometimes what feels minor immediately following your slip and fall can feel major in the next few days.
  • Write Down What Happened: It’s important to document exactly how the injury occurred before you forget. What seems like a minor detail could impact your treatment and be important to ensuring you receive the best possible care.
  • Seek Professional Help Before Treating Yourself: Google has given many people an overinflated sense of their ability to treat their own illnesses and injuries. Doctors and chiropractors have the knowledge and resources to address, assess and treat your injury rather than masking it with medication.
  • Be Patient: Depending on your age, health and level of physical fitness, it can take time to recover even from a minor injury. Additionally, while chiropractic care is very effective, it can be a gradual process and may not provide immediate relief after just a few treatments.

If you’ve suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident, contact Freedom Chiropractic today. We will use adjustments, therapeutic exercises, trigger point therapy, decompression and other holistic techniques to help you feel better and get back on your feet after a fall.
