Personal Injury Prevention and Treatment
Roughly nine million people suffer from fall-related personal injuries every year. Add to this the countless others that find themselves in pain due to twisting the wrong way, lifting something too heavy, or any other accidental injury, and the numbers are staggering.
Personal Injury Prevention
Of course, prevention is always better than trying to cure the pains that personal injuries cause, so here are a few tips from your Henderson chiropractors to limit your risk:
- Watch Your Step. A large number of personal injuries can be avoided if you simply watch the ground that you are about to step foot on. Cracks in the sidewalk and uneven paths increase your risk of falls, making paying attention to them crucial if you want to avoid this type of injury that can ultimately give you an excessive amount of back pain, as well as broken bones and sprains.
- Think Before You Lift. It is easy to get caught up in getting things done, but doing so without thinking may cause you to sacrifice your form, increasing the chances that you will suffer from a personal injury to your spinal area. Always squat to pick things up, using your thigh muscles instead of your back and, if the object is too heavy, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
- Stay Fit. The better shape you are in, the less likely it is that you will endure a personal injury because your bones and muscles will be able to stand up against an unforeseen force. Eat nutritious foods, drink a lot of water, and engage in regular physical activity and you’ll be one step closer to injury-proofing your body.
