If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a slip or fall, then you may find that you have neck pain that lingers much longer than your bruises, or the other injuries that you have suffered. Many times, the neck pain will fade eventually, but for some people neck pain will severely out-stay its welcome.
The Sooner You See Someone About Your Injury, the Quicker You’ll Feel Like Yourself Again
Most people, when they suffer a slip and fall, simply pick themselves up and ‘soldier on’ as if nothing has happened. While your peers may find this attitude admirable, it’s probably the worst thing that you can do. A slip can cause injuries to your bones, muscles and other physical systems. Just because you cannot see any damage, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any.
You should try and make an appointment with a chiropractor within 48 hours after a fall, even though you might feel very much pain at the moment. Your body may not ‘feel’ pain until hours after your slip. This is because even a slight injury can cause inflammation, or internal misalignment that can lead to other complications.
If You Leave Any Injuries Unattended to, They Will Only Ever Get Worse
The human body is an amazing natural machine, but it is not built to last forever and to recover easily from impacts and other traumas. Sometimes, it just needs a helping hand through medication, surgery or physical manipulation.
If you visit a chiropractor as soon as possible after your slip or fall then you will give yourself the best chance of a full and speedy recovery without invasive surgery. An experienced chiropractor will be able to diagnose what the problem is, and to come up with a suitable treatment plan.
Put Your Mind at Rest With a Visit to Your Local, Experienced Chiropractor
The days following a slip or trip can be tough and stressful, particularly if you’re trying to get on with your life ‘as normal’. Why push yourself, or worry that you might have become injured? Schedule an appointment with a chiropractor as soon as you can to determine if there is any cause for concern.
