Odds are, you’ve fallen down. Whether you were playing a sport, mopping the floor, or just missed a step, slips and trips are the most common types of falls. While you may think it’s embarrassing, a slip, trip, or fall may be far more serious that you initially think, and signs of injury may not appear until hours or days after your fall.
Slips, trips, and falls are common causes of many injuries ranging from hip injuries and broken bones to sprains and strains. A slip often happens when you lose traction and causes you to fall backward, and a trip happens when you hit an object with your foot and lose your balance, often causing you to fall forward.
Upon an initial examination, one of our providers at Pain Rehabilitation Associates will evaluate your age, directionality of your fall, and pre-existing conditions in order to determine the severity and location of your injury. We are trained to determine and diagnose the injuries that resulted from your slip, trip, or fall and will treat your injuries accordingly. We will work closely with you to personalize a comprehensive treatment plan designed to restore you to optimal health and heal your injuries properly and efficiently.
