Slips and falls
Slips and falls can happen to anyone at any point in their lives and there are many causes from misjudging a step to slippery surfaces. Most of the time we are able to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off and carry on. No matter how big or small, slips and falls can have a dramatic effect on the mechanics of the body and result in symptoms later on.
What do you feel?
Symptoms from a slip or fall can vary from cuts and bruises to achiness within the muscles and joints to a more impactful fracture/open wound depending on the force on landing from the slip or fall.
What to do?
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your head, neck, shoulder, arm, hip, back, leg following a slip or fall, it is important to establish the source of the pain and receive treatment appropriate for your case.
