Types Of Slip and Fall Injuries

Types Of Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall accidents can happen at the time and place you least expect. The impact from a fall may lead to irreparable damage and even  life-threatening emergencies. These injuries require professional care, so it is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-medicate. To avoid serious complications, always seek medical care after a slip and fall accident.


Common Slip And Fall Injuries Include:

  • Bone Fractures. Fractures are broken bones that require immediate medical attention. With proper treatment, bones have the ability to heal, but some bone fractures may require surgery. Proper treatment and regular physical therapy sessions help rehabilitate broken bones and contribute to your recovery process.
  • Sprains. A sprain happens when ligaments are torn or overstretched. It can be a twisted ankle from a bad fall or a sprained wrist due to a slip incident. Symptoms include swelling, bruising and mild to severe pain.
  • Neck and Back Injuries. Neck and back injuries are serious, painful, and inconvenient. When you get into a slip and fall accident, the injuries sustained may lead to headache, muscle pain, and loss of mobility. Whether it is the result of a herniated disc, torn ligaments on the shoulder, or a fracture of your spine, such pain requires prompt treatment. 
  • Head Injury. A head injury is one of the most dangerous injuries from slip and fall accidents. Sometimes wounds and abrasions are obvious, but often the damage is only discovered upon further examination. Constant headache, dizziness, or vomiting might be signs of serious problems from the injury. It is better to consult a doctor immediately to get a thorough diagnosis after a head trauma.  


Slip and fall injuries require a different approach when it comes to treatment and rehabilitation. Your physician might recommend regular physical therapy sessions to improve your mobility and balance and rehabilitate the injuries to your musculoskeletal system.  You can also consult a chiropractor to restore any misalignment of your bones and relieve chronic pain caused by slip and fall injuries.
