Beginning from childhood years, accidental injuries accumulate. The leading cause, according to Las Vegas chiropractors, are slip and fall injuries.
Many simply result in scrapes and minor bruises. However, broken bones are not uncommon and very often back and neck displacement occurs with serious consequences. Most injuries from hard falls must be given medical attention and examination because of the potential for broken or chipped bones. If they include trauma to the spine then normal body motion is disturbed and this sets the stage for problems that can continue over decades. Injuries of this type often result in chronic pain, a condition frequently encountered and always challenging to the treatment provider.
These spills, slips and tumbles usually wrench muscles, tendons and even spinal discs. The resulting pain is not always in proportion to the damage that has been done. Our bodies have built-in pain “mockers” that screen serious damage for varying periods though swelling and discoloration are present. If left unattended, injuries result in formation of scars formation. These areas never full return to their normal pre-injury state.
As people grow into advanced year’s injuries from slips and fall increases. Broken bones can actually be life threatening. Nationally, falls continue as one of the leading causes of major injuries and hospitalization among older citizens. Misalignment of the vertebrae too becomes more likely as balance and equilibrium lose their youthful edge. Falls seem to be more severe and spinal injury can then open the door to pain everywhere in the body. If not checked and evaluated by one of our Las Vegas chiropractors, such injuries lead to years of discomfort.
