The first thing you should do is assess the damage. Take a moment to evaluate your physical condition and see if there are any obvious injuries. If you are in pain or cannot walk, please seek medical attention immediately.
An bad slip and fall can have a major impact on your life as it can cause pain or muscle spasms that interfere with everyday activities. The spine is particularly susceptible because people who land on their backs, butts, knees and sides while falling backward misaligns the joints that connect the vertebrae together.
