Common slip and fall accident injuries you should seek treatment on right away.
Many types of injuries can occur in a slip and fall accident, and whether you feel you’ve been injured or not, be sure that you come to see the specialists at Impact Medical right away.
We have the knowledge and experience to diagnose any unforeseen issues and injuries that can occur in the course of an accidental fall. Including these common types of Florida slip and fall accident injuries:
A pinched nerve applies when excessive pressure is applied to a nerve resulting in pain, numbness and/or tingling. The hard impact of a slip and fall accident can lead to a pinched nerve anywhere in your body, but the most common place for one to occur is in your spine. Treatments for pinched nerves include a spinal adjustment to force relaxation of the nerve endings as well as passive and active physical therapy treatments to reduce the pain caused by a pinched nerve.
The other spinal injury that often results from a slip and fall accident is a herniated disc. When one of the discs in the spine is damaged it can pinch the nerves within the spine and even cause the jelly-like fluid of the spine to leak. This can lead to pain, numbness and weakness. The pain and symptoms caused by these injuries can be addressed by our medical team using spinal manipulation, flexion-distraction and other therapeutic exercises. In the most severe cases, and only when other methods are unsuccessful a surgical procedure may be required to provide true comfort and relief.
Neck & Back Injuries
Neck and back injuries are some of the most common types of slip and fall injuries we work with. If you’ve suffered a spinal misalignment or even a fracture to the vertebrae in your neck or back, call our dedicated staff today before you injure yourself further.
Leg & Foot Injuries
These types of injuries happen often in a slip and fall accident. This is because many times you will trip over something on the floor that causes the accidental fall. It’s essential to have your legs and feet thoroughly examined to be sure there is no damage that can lead to other complications.
Arm & Hand Injuries
When you fall, you naturally brace yourself for the impact and this can cause lasting damage and injury to your arms, wrists, and hands. Our arm and hand specialists can help you heal the soft tissue injuries, misalignments, and minimized range of motion with our customized care plans today.
