Slip and Fall Injury – When to Seek Treatment

When the body is suddenly subjected to the trauma of a severe slip and fall, a number of things can go wrong—and sometimes it’s hard to identify their severity.  Pain is one indicator, but the presence of pain or lack thereof isn’t always the most efficient communicator of injury or damage.  During a slip or fall, the spine and extremities can become misaligned or injured as the body attempts to catch itself and find solid footing. Sudden impact with the ground or other hard surface can also amount to both hard and soft tissue damage.

If you’ve experienced a slip or fall, or if you’re experiencing pain that could be connected to a previous injury, it’s wise to seek to examination and, if needed, pursue treatment.  Slip and fall injuries affect the body in numerous ways and the full effects aren’t always immediate, but with a professional assessment, we can address any issues and develop a safe, effective physical therapy treatment plan.
