Accidents can happen at any time or anywhere, resulting in a slip and fall injury. Several different types of injuries to the musculoskeletal system result from this type of accident. At Erese Chiropractic Center, Dr. Benjamin Erese and his highly experienced team can help you recover from a slip and fall injury in Salisbury, NC in a way that resolves the origins of your symptoms without relying on drugs or medications.
What Types of Injuries are Caused By Slipping and Falling?
When you slip and then fall, your body is jarred when it hits the ground and the impact can misalign your spine and cause other problems including whiplash, shoulder and neck injuries, bruised ribs, strains and sprains, back pain, and tingling sensations. Often your ankle may be strained or sprained and many times neck pain occurs, but not immediately after the fall. Neck injuries can be caused by tiny tears in your ligaments and muscles that get worse with continued use, causing them to swell and put pressure on the joints.
What Types of Treatment are There For Accidental Slips?
The main goal is for your chiropractor to reduce your pain, help you regain your range of motion, and reduce swelling so your body can heal itself holistically without any invasive treatments. You can face severe back pain if your back is out of alignment, causing your vertebrae and discs in your spine to press on the nerves. A chiropractor can realign your spine to greatly relieve your symptoms. Some of the available treatments by your chiropractor to help you may include activator method adjustments, Lloyd drop table adjustments, hands-on adjustments, and physical therapy modalities, such as hot or cold packs and TENS units.
