Our clinic has cutting-edge treatment options to deal with slip and fall accident injuries. Our treatment solutions will be customized to meet your individual needs.
Chiropractic Treatment Options for Slip and Fall Injuries
Our slip and fall chiropractors offer various treatment options, which is why it's so important to be properly diagnosed before you receive treatment. We want to make sure you're given the very best treatment plan based on your specific recovery needs.
As part of the examination, the chiropractor will perform a full-body evaluation, pain and palpitation testing, joint and range of motion testing, as well as X-Rays. Once a diagnosis has been determined, the chiropractor will go over your personalized treatment plan and provide you with your first treatment session.
Depending upon your injuries, the chiropractor may suggest any of the following treatments to assist with a speedy recovery:
The sudden impact of a slip and fall can cause joints in the spine to stiffen. Hands-on spinal manipulation treatment works to realign the spine and restore the body to its full range of motion.
A spinal decompression table is a computerized table that helps reduce pressure on the spine caused by a slip and fall injury. This treatment relieves nerve pain by realigning discs and joints.
Slip and fall injuries can cause damage to pretty much any area of the body. At Arrowhead Clinic, our chiropractors are trained to find and determine the underlying cause of your pain so that they can provide you with the best treatment options.
Slip and Fall Chiropractor FAQ's
Who is at fault when you are injured in a slip and fall depends on where you were and what you were doing at the time of the injury. The most common slip and falls occur at work, on private property, or on public property.
Slip and fall accidents represent most workers’ compensation claims, and the likelihood of a slip and fall accident increases with age.
If you are injured at work, your workers’ compensation claim should cover the cost of your treatment. You may also be eligible for additional compensation if your employer didn’t take the necessary precautions to make your workplace compliant with safety standards.
A property owner has the responsibility to make sure their premises is safe. When you slip and fall on someone else's private property, premise liability is in place to determine your rights, which will vary based on the reason for your presence on the property, for example:
- Social guest- You were invited by the property owner as their guest.
- Licensee- You received consent from the property owner to be there.
- Trespasser- You entered the private property with no right to do so.
- Invitee- You were invited onto the property, and it is generally understood that the property owner took reasonable actions to make the property safe and accommodating.
The reason you were on the property may determine what rights you have and who is responsible when it comes to a slip and fall accident. The circumstances regarding why you were on the property in the first place, along with how you were behaving when the accident occurred, will both be determining factors when it comes to proving fault.
Slip and fall accidents on public or government property are handled in a similar way to those that occur on private property. You must prove the property was unsafe, and that you had every right to be there at the time of the accident.
Regardless of age, anyone can become the victim of a slip and fall accident. In some cases, the victim is not to blame for the accident at all. Many accidents happen because of someone else's negligence, such as a water spill at the grocery store with no warning that the floor is wet or a loose board.
Another common reason for slip and fall accidents to occur has to do with obstacles in the home. Some people are not careful where certain objects are placed, causing trips and slips to occur.
Stairs are another common hazard. Many of us have slipped down a flight of stairs at some point in our life, and this can happen to any of us.
Make sure you get the treatment that you need after being injured in a slip and fall accident.
Current statistics reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that over 800,000 patients are hospitalized each year because of slip and fall accident injuries.
