Do I Need a Chiropractor After a Slip and Fall Accident?

No matter how sure upon our feet we are, we all occasionally lose our footing and/or our balance and take a tumble. We generally pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off and try and carry on as normal, but sometimes even the tiniest slip and fall can cause internal injuries that people tend to ignore and ‘put up with’ in the hopes that they will eventually go away.

Even a Stumble and a Tumble Can Lead to Painful Physical Problems

Bodies are designed to be robust, but they are not really designed to withstand sudden impacts such as an encounter with a hard floor after a slip and fall accident. If you are lucky, then your body’s natural healing processes will take care of any internal injuries you sustained, but if you’re unlucky you may have trapped a nerve or suffered an injury that although not overtly painful causes discomfort that simply refuses to go away.

Your body is an amazing machine filled with bones, muscles, ligaments, vital organs, nerves and plenty of other crucial stuff. Everything though needs to work in harmony in order to give you the best quality of life. A small issue in one part of your body can lead to complications that can become quite debilitating.

For example, when falling many people land on their backs. The key component of your back is your spine, and your spine is one of the most crucial parts of your skeleton, muscular and nervous system. A bad impact can lead to joint swelling which in turn can lead to severe back pain and even repeated muscles spasms. People who suffer from a ‘bad back’ often complain that their physical situation shows no signs of improving, and they feel that they will have to live with back pain for a significant period of time.

A Chiropractor Can Aid Your Recovery After a Slip and Fall Accident

Here is where a chiropractor comes in. A chiropractor is someone who makes adjustments to your spine and connecting skeleton in order to correct imbalances and misalignments. By correctly aligning your spine and making other adjustments, your body will be back in balance and the painful repercussions of your slip and fall accident will quickly fade away, allowing you to live pain-free once again.
