Falling is never fun. If it is a controlled and safe fall, such as one at an amusement park while you have safety gear on it may be better, but falling accidentally is a totally different story. It can happen to anyone and at any time. While some people may be at a higher risk of falling, a simple dizzy spell due to a blood pressure drop can make anyone fall without a single warning.
Slipping is another problem that can happen to anyone. When something is wet or your shoes don’t have a good grip it becomes all too easy to slip and fall. Like a dizzy spell, it can happen to anyone and often doesn’t have a warning. Although those “Wet Floor” signs can help, they often aren’t placed until after someone has already fallen.
Falling often can cause damage even if you’ve only fallen from standing up. Imagine then falling from a height. This can also happen to anyone. Perhaps you’ve fallen down the steps in your house or into a hole that you didn’t happen to see before you stepped ahead. Falls, although common, are one of the biggest reasons for the body becoming hurt. While sometimes these falls result in something fractured or broken, other times they result in pain for some invisible reason. Sometimes a nerve has been pinched, other times a disk in the spine has been damaged, or possibly some muscles were pulled by you trying to stop your fall. Whatever the reason, these falls are never fun. The aftermath is even less fun and unfortunately the pain is more often than not a factor of trying to heal after the fall. How are you supposed to help yourself get better when you don’t even know exactly what is wrong?
Chiropractic care is one of the first things that you can and should try. If the fall damaged something in your musculoskeletal system, a chiropractic adjustment can be just what the doctor ordered- literally! Getting an adjustment can pop everything back into alignment and fix your back if you have suffered a fall. Chiropractors are specially trained in how to realign the skeleton inside your body which can help to relieve the pain from your unfortunate run-in with gravity.
