Our Topeka Chiropractor Team Can Help You After a Slip and Fall

Falls aren't just a problem for our older loved ones; people of all ages can experience slips and tumbles at any age and in a variety of situations. From slippery ice on the sidewalks to wet floors at work to accidents on the sports field, you never know when you may find yourself feeling sore after a trip and fall. Our Topeka chiropractor staff is here to help you get back on your feet through natural and effective healing.

Common Types of Injuries Related to Slip & Fall Accidents

Falls can be quite a shock to your body and may result in a variety of injuries, such as:

  • Bone fractures (especially in the wrist, hips, and ankles)
  • Muscle strains and spasms
  • Disc herniations or bulges
  • Sciatica and nerve impingement
  • Hematomas 
  • Whiplash

These injuries may happen right away, or they may take a few days to become symptomatic (since stress-related hormones like adrenaline may temporarily mask the pain).

Interestingly, while not all falls are completely unavoidable, there are certain ways you can fall more "safely" so as to minimize your risk of injury, like tucking your chin and using your forearms (instead of your wrists) to brace yourself. 

How Chiropractic Care Can Facilitate & Accelerate Healing From Slip & Fall Injuries

Our chiropractors in Topeka are happy to help people get pain-free as soon as possible following a fall-related injury. The chiropractic care we provide centers on natural techniques which support the body's own ability to heal—far more than just masking symptoms. Our services facilitate healing and can relieve your pain, swelling, inflammation, and related issues as quickly and fully as possible. We do take x-rays in house and electrical stimulation or ultrasound therapy for certain patients and situations.

If you come to see us for a slip and fall, you may be treated with:

  • Chiropractic spinal adjustments
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Nutritional supplements to accelerate healing
  • Extremity adjustments
  • Nutritional counseling (by fueling your body with nutritious and anti-inflammatory foods, you'll optimize your recovery)
