Slipping, falling, and injuring yourself is more common than you might think. Among the most common causes of injuries, slip and fall accidents can be caused by anything from slick and slippery surfaces to hazardous steps and stairs to genuine misfortune. If you have suffered from a Slip and Fall Accident in Miami or Coral Gables, contact Miami Accident Center for same day appointments.
Have you had a slip and fall accident?
Falls are responsible for eight million visits to emergency rooms every year, which makes them the top reason people visit the emergency room. Slip and falls are responsible for one million emergency room visits and account for 12 percent of total falls.
Let’s look at where most slip and fall accidents occur, the most common types of slip and fall injuries, and the best treatments for those injuries.
Where Are People Most Likely to Slip and Fall?
Slip and falls can occur anywhere, but there are certain places that are more prone to slip and fall accidents. The 10 most common slip and fall accident locations include:
- Hallways with lots of clutter
- Areas with heavy traffic
- Areas likely to be wet or have spills
- Unguarded heights
- Uneven surfaces
- Unstable work surfaces
People who suffer slip and fall injuries can experience trauma to bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments on nearly any place of the body.
When these injuries are severe and a daily source of pain and limitations, exploring non-invasive, drug-free treatment options should become a priority.
At Miami Accident Center, our Slip and Fall Accident specialists have treated patients from all walks of life who have suffered many different types of injuries in slip and fall accidents for many years.
By providing in-depth evaluations and by listening closely to the circumstances surrounding your accident and the ways in which the trauma you experienced manifests as pain, we can determine the underlying cause and deliver slip and fall accident targeted treatment.
As chiropractic care focuses on problems with the musculoskeletal system, as well as the nervous system, it is uniquely suited to treat common slip and fall injuries, including sprains and strains, joint pain, and neck and back pain.
Adjustments are non-invasive and offer safe and effective alleviation of pain by increasing range of motion and the body’s natural ability to heal. In addition to treating structures of the spine, chiropractic care is used to treat injuries to the knees, ankles, elbows, wrists, and shoulders, which are parts of the body commonly injured during slip and fall accidents.
