Slip and Fall Injuries Are Very Common
At one time or another, just about everyone will suffer slip or fall injuries from a mishap on an icy sidewalk or a slick wet floor. Most of the time when you take a slip or a fall you instinctively try to brace your fall by extending your arms. This may result in an injured shoulder, twisted muscles, or straining a ligament.
Falls that cause the discs in your spine to move out of their natural alignment can pinch your nerves and cause unbearable nerve pain in addition to your soft tissue injuries. Subtle injuries in your neck may be unnoticeable at first but can create long-term pain and disabilities as your neck muscles attempt to heal on their own. It is estimated that about 8 million people suffer injuries serious enough to go to the ER after a slip or fall. After the age of 65, about one in three Americans suffers a slip or a fall every year.
