Did You Fall? See Your Local Chiropractor!

By Donna Stark

With slippery slush and black ice, it's no wonder that winter weather is the leading cause of accidental falls and injuries. And should you find yourself nursing an injury after one of these falls, you may want to consider heading on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. Because even if the injury doesn't appear to be serious, or you were able to get back up right away and dust the snow off your jacket, there could be some hidden issues that will need some attention.

Did You Fall? See Your Local Chiropractor!

It may not make sense at first, but you don't need to experience a traumatic event during a fall to sustain serious injury. The jarring force that occurs on the body can still cause significant issues, so it's important to see your chiropractor right away. Here's why. 

  • Alignment - If there isn't any serious bleeding or broken bones, you may get a clean bill of health from your primary doctor but that doesn't mean your body is in a perfect state of health. Your spine and other joints could have been forced out of alignment, and if you don't notice that right away, you can count on noticing it down the road. This is why the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic take accidental falls seriously. They help correct the hidden damage so you can recover easily.
  • Recovery - The biggest mistake that many people make is waiting too long before seeking help. Waiting for days, weeks, and even months will only increase the risk of future damage and make the recovery process more difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Chiropractic care helps reduce inflammation, joint dysfunction, and muscle strain and reduces the time it takes the body to heal.
  • Medication - Chances are, if you go to your primary doctor complaining of pain and soreness after a fall, you will walk out of the office with a prescription for pain medication and muscle relaxers, which means you will be walking out of the office with the undesirable side effects that come with them too. On the other hand, chiropractic care is completely all-natural. There is no medication prescribed and because of that, your body has the chance to heal itself.

Feeling Better After a Fall

At first, pain and soreness may be the things that bring you in to see your chiropractor, but improved health and wellness will be the things that keep you coming back! As you learn more about the benefits that chiropractic care provides and start to feel better overall, you may decide that it is one thing you don't want to do without!
