A slip and fall injury can cause serious injury immediately, or later on. Our slip & fall chiropractors at Metro Atlanta Injury & Wellness Center will thoroughly examine a patient who has been injured in a slip and fall, properly document those injuries, and order x-rays and/or and MRI to determine the extent of those injuries. If serious injury has been sustained to the discs that make up the bone structure of the spine, the chiropractor may refer the patient to co-treat with an orthopedist.
