Michaux Family Chiropractic Encourages Slip and Fall Accident Victims to Seek Immediate Treatment

CLERMONT, Fla., April 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Most individuals that suffer from injuries due to a slip and fall should seek treatment quickly, as injuries can be similar to those from a high impact auto accident, reports Michaux Family Chiropractic. Slip and fall accident victims can require extensive work on themselves to fully recover from sustained injuries. Some soft tissue injuries and symptoms are not readily apparent right after a fall and can lead to long-term pain and impact the ability of an individual to perform daily activities. Chiropractic care is an effective and non-surgical treatment to address the source of an injury and many patients find their insurance covers part or all of the treatment.

According to the National Floor Safety Institute, slip, trip and fall accidents are the primary cause of emergency room visits and missed work days. 8 million people have to make a visit to the emergency room due to a slip and fall injury. Injuries incurred can include neck injuries, muscle and ligament injuries, knee injuries and fractured or broken bones. Many of those injured from a slip and fall experience from some type of back pain and misalignment with a host of injuries that take time to reveal themselves. Starting chiropractic treatment as soon as possible after suffering such trauma can make a tremendous difference to the speed and ability of the body to make an optimal recovery. The types of injuries experienced can mimic those of auto accident victims and it becomes imperative for patients to attend to health needs as early as possible to avail themselves of all treatment options.

“Chiropractic treatment is uniquely suited to assist slip and fall patients during their recovery,” said Dr. Kurt Michaux. “As an experienced chiropractor, I have seen patients surprised at how quickly subtle manipulations relieve pain, migraines and more due to inflammation, misalignment and nerve impingement. Chiropractic treatment uses the body’s natural ability to heal itself and as an effective tool toward the recovery of a patient’s previous strength and range of motion, with reduced reliance on prescription medication.”

Dr. Kurt Michaux, chiropractor, has been serving the communities of Clermont, Davenport, Oakland, Montverde, Minneola, Kissimmee, Groveland, Mascotte, Windermere, Four Corners, Leesburg and Winter Garden.
