Indoor Accidents That Require Chiropractic

By Brandi Goodman

You're indoors. You're safe and free from falls. Right? Wrong! Many accidents older adults suffer actually happen inside their own homes rather than out. Indoor accidents are quite common and require chiropractic care to help with pain relief and prevention of future mishaps.

Tripping on a Rug

One of the typical reasons people trip in the home is due to rugs. If you have a rug on your floor with edges that peel up easily as you walk over it, it's time to get rid of it. You should look for an option that sticks down easily and doesn't come up every time you step on it. If you tripped on your rug, you may have fallen down hard on your back side or even fallen forward. You could have hurt a number of bones or joints. See a chiropractor to get some relief.

Slipping in the Shower

A shower slip is also incredibly common. The surface of the tub is slippery with the soap and water combined. Make sure to add a non-slip mat to your bathtub so you have less chance of falling. You can also install a grab bar that gives you something to hold and maintain your balance. Falling in the small space of the shower can hurt tremendously. Seek chiropractic relief promptly for an assessment.

Household Chores That Lead to Backaches

Perhaps it was your chores that caused you trouble. Many household chores can lead to backaches, sprains, and worse if you aren't careful. You could be doing the laundry and pull something in your back as you attempt to reach down into the machine. You should be maintaining your posture even as you're handling these tasks. If you pull a muscle or otherwise experience an ache as you're attempting to clean or take care of something around the house, see a chiropractor for assistance.

Chiropractic care can help to ease your discomfort after you've suffered a fall or experienced a mishap at home. To prevent one from occurring in the first place, get chiropractic regularly to keep your bones and joints strong and flexible. You can better keep your balance and avoid such a severe injury if you've got chiropractic in your arsenal. Stop in at The Joint today for an assessment and start making chiropractic part of your regular routine to avoid indoor accidents.
