Common Injuries Due To Slip And Fall Accidents

For those aged 65 and over, injuries from falls are the primary reason for injury-related hospitalizations. These can lead to severe health issues such as:

  • Traumatic brain damage
  • Fractures in the hips, spine, neck, legs, and back
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Sprains and various fractures are frequently caused by falls, especially in the arms and legs. A fall's sudden force can cause nerve damages or even dislocate the shoulder when the shoulder takes the brunt of the fall. Immediate medical intervention or rehab might be needed if you or a family member has sustained an injury from a slip and fall.

Treatment For Slip & Fall Injuries

Slip and fall incidents can transpire anywhere - from one's home and workplace to public areas. Successful treatment is rooted in understanding what experts can offer and the duration of the healing process. Physical therapy, often combined with occupational therapy, emphasizes balance, stability, and the capability to undertake everyday activities.


Regenerative treatment

Regenerative medical practices amplify the body's healing response, aiding in the repair of semi-damaged tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. This less invasive approach is sometimes preferred over surgery. By employing stem cell injections that facilitate tissue repair and regeneration, this treatment leverages mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors, often delivering impressive results.



After a thorough initial evaluation, most specialists will advise rest. Rushing into activities might prolong the recovery or exacerbate the injury. Exercising restraint is vital – a single misstep can undo weeks of healing. Generally, it's best to avoid heavy lifting, strenuous sports, or exerting oneself. Especially after a significant injury, like one to the back, staying home can sometimes be the best remedy post-fall.
