Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall Accidents

With winter here, we see a lot more patients suffering with injuries from slip and fall accidents. That’s because the roads and streets are often wet and sometimes icy. People are often bundled up in heavy coats and this can prevent you from being able to see all around you. A slip and fall accident can cause damage to your neck and back. Usually this is the type of jarring fall to the ground that knocks your back out of alignment. Though this type of accident does initially hurt, patients usually feel worse the next day.

Your neck may be placed in a strenuous position at night due to the angles between your body and head. It’s not necessary to spend lots of cash on a new pillow, but new mattresses are very often costly. With the holidays here you can find mattresses at a very good price....
