Slip and Fall incidents are some of the most common accidents in the state of Georgia. They are also one of the most prevalent ways to damage the neck, back, and hips in particular for the elderly. However, a Slip and Fall Injury can happen to anyone and anywhere.
Slip and Fall injuries can happen in your home or due to the negligence of someone else. If you have suffered an injury, your priority should be to see a Chiropractor at one of Arrowhead Clinics in Georgia and South Carolina.
Some of the most common Slip and Fall Injuries include:
Neck and Back Injuries
A slip and fall injury can be an extremely painful experience causing slipped discs, broken back, or other injuries that can lead to severe and chronic pain with the inability to return to work or the need for surgery.
One of the most common injuries to obtain after a slip and fall, are traumatic brain injuries which result from the victims head hitting the ground or an object. Traumatic brain injuries can cause severe and lifelong consequences. Rehabilitation or extensive rehab may be necessary for recovery.
Slip and Fall Accidents that cause the victim to break bones in their hips may result in a hip replacement surgery where rehabilitation could be necessary. The elderly are especially vulnerable to breaking hip bones after a slip and fall.
Slip and Fall victims can experience trauma on nearly any part of the body. When these injuries are severe and a daily source of pain, exploring non-invasive, drug-free treatment options should be your top priority.
