As one of the largest cities in Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach has an increasing population of over 110,000 residents, many of which are senior citizens (65 and older) who have made the vibrant city their home.

A study by the CDC reports that over 2 million people sought treatment in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries. The CDC also reports that 1-in-4 seniors experience a slip, trip, or fall accident per year – and – the risk of falling increases after that initial accident.

Causes For A Slip, Trip and Fall Injury

A slip and fall accident occurs when a property owner or management company fails to address hazardous conditions such as cracked pavement, slick, wet or waxed floors, loose tile or floorboards, broken steps, or missing stairwell railings.

If you or someone you know was involved in a slip, trip, or fall accident, we encourage you to seek medical treatment immediately.

Chiropractic Care for a Slip, Trip or Fall Accident

A Slip and Fall accident can lead to neck, back, hip, knee, and shoulder injuries. One may not sense the damage after the initial fall; however, it is common to feel tension or sudden pain in the days following.

Before treatment can begin, our chiropractors will conduct a physical examination which could include a CT scan, MRI, and x-rays to locate the injury and determine the extent of the damage.
