04 Oct Recover From a Slip and Fall Injury With Chiropractic Care
With the seasons changing, weather conditions may require some extra caution when you are out and about. Autumn and winter tend to bring rainy days which can cause walkways, floors, and sidewalks to get quite slippery.
One misstep on a slick surface and you could instantly slip and fall. Ouch! The injuries that can result from such an incident can be hard on your body and difficult to bounce back from. Without proper treatment, the physical trauma that occurs after a slip or fall can lead to a lifetime of pain and discomfort. You may even suffer from spinal misalignment which can bring about a wider range of health issues.
The McAllen chiropractors at Hendrick Wellness Center encourage you to take a step towards recovery so that you no longer suffer these agonizing effects to your body. We can assess your spinal alignment and address the underlying issues that may be causing discomfort while also providing you with chiropractic care that can prevent future ailments.
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a simple method of physical adjustments that corrects the alignment of the spine and eliminates issues affecting the nervous system. This will reduce stress on the affected bones and ligaments, allowing for a natural healing process.
Hendrick Wellness Center can assist you in resolving all of the following slip and fall injuries:
- Bruised ribs
- Sprains and strains
- Herniated discs
- Injured ligaments
- Nerve-related numbness
- Tingling sensation of a body part
Spinal adjustment can alleviate your injury-related aches and work wonders to resolve other issues that are connected to spinal misalignment or affected nerves. Chiropractic care can also relieve pressure and tension near the bones, joints, and ligaments. It can resolve pains in the neck, back, and even help with migraines.
What to Expect in a Chiropractic Treatment
The chiropractor will begin by reviewing your medical history and performing a physical examination. This will be followed by an in-depth evaluation of your personal situation and the symptoms you are experiencing as a result of the physical trauma. From this, our chiropractors can create a personalized treatment program.
For those who have sustained injuries after a slip or fall, the therapy provided by chiropractors can really benefit you. Realigning your spine through massage and various hands-on techniques can provide instant relief.
If your injury is more serious, consult your primary care physician as it might call for a surgical approach. Based upon physical examination, a chiropractor may also refer you out for surgery.
