Should I See My Chiropractor after Falling on Ice? – Pain Care Associates

Icy and snowy weather creates slick sidewalks and roads, which contributes to an increase in slip and fall injuries. Here at Pain Care Associates, we would like to help you avoid slip and fall injuries this winter. If you do fall, remember to schedule an appointment with our Little Rock chiropractor for a full evaluation.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries in Little Rock

When you slip and fall on ice, you have little control over how you fall. Your feet suddenly lose traction and your legs fly out from under you, leaving you to land on a hard layer of ice and concrete. This can cause numerous musculoskeletal injuries. Common injuries include herniated discs, sprained ankles, hip and knee injuries. Falling on a hard surface can also cause strains and sprains of the back and neck and injured and torn ligaments.

To avoid falling on ice and snow, wear shoes that have good tread and provide traction in inclement weather conditions. Always watch where you are walking. If you are uncertain about a section of pavement, test it by tapping your foot or rubbing it against the surface to determine its slickness.

Chiropractic Care for Falls on Ice

Alternating ice and heat can reduce inflammation and swelling. However, if the pain and loss of range of motion continue for more than a couple days, it is time to schedule an appointment with our chiropractor for a full evaluation. We can successfully diagnose and treat slip and fall injuries.

We offer chiropractic adjustments, deep tissue massage, physical therapy and ultrasound therapy to reduce pain and heal musculoskeletal injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can be used to realign your vertebrae and extremity joints. This reduces pain and inflammation. Receiving regular deep tissue massages helps reduce muscle pain and improves circulation. Physical therapy helps strengthen weak and injured muscles to improve range of motion and stamina. Ultrasound therapy is used to reduce pain and speed healing by penetrating deep into the soft tissues.
