Slips and Falls happen to everyone at some point in their lives. Most of the time we brush ourselves off and carry on with our day, but no matter how big or small, slips and falls can have a dramatic effect on our bodies and therefore our health.
There are many causes of slips and falls from unseen steps, slippery surfaces or just plain old bad luck.
When a person slips or falls, they will very often suffer trauma to their muscles, bones, ligaments and central nervous system from the impact. This trauma can lead to spinal misalignment, which in turn leads to a restriction of the flow of information to and from the central nervous system, resulting in your body not functioning to its full potential.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort as a result of a slip or fall, it is important to seek a drug free, non invasive treatment as soon as you can.
At Putney Chiropractic we provide this treatment, realigning your spine so that your nervous system can return to normal working order, enabling your body to self heal efficiently. We also have on-site x-ray facilities allowing us to establish whether any serious injuries have occurred and helping us to create the treatment plan that will be most effective for you.
In addition to focusing on the spine we can also treat other areas often affected by slips and falls such as ankles, knees, wrists and shoulders.
Once we have accurately assessed the damage we will move on to a series of exercises designed to return strength and flexibility to the injured area. Once these have started to improve, our chiropractic team will encourage you to perform the exercises on your own to speed up the recovery process.
