Slip and Fall Q & A

How do slip and fall injuries happen?

Slip and fall injuries can happen in a variety of ways, but some of the most common include accidents at the workplace (aka workers’ compensation injuries), at grocery stores and other retailers, around the home, and at entertainment venues like bars and movie theaters.

Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents can happen even when you’re quite careful. It only takes a small amount of liquid or slightly displaced flooring to trigger a potentially disastrous slip and fall accident.

What kind of damage can slip and fall injuries cause?

Slip and fall injuries are quite common sources of pain, but the exact type of underlying damage can vary. A slip and fall accident may cause:

  • Ligament damage - sprains, strains, or ruptures
  • Spinal nerve damage affecting the back and legs
  • Fractures ranging from hairline to compound
  • Tendon damage - sprains, strains, or ruptures
  • Disc damage - slipped disc, herniated or ruptured disc


If you have serious pain after a slip and fall accident, and it doesn’t respond well to rest and ice application, it’s time to see pain management expert Dr. Coccaro at Precision Pain Management, LLC. If you don’t get help for pain after a slip and fall accident, your pain might become a permanent disability that continues for the rest of your life.

How do you diagnose a slip and fall injury?

Dr. Coccaro starts with a full exam while discussing your symptoms with you. He reviews your X-rays and MRI imaging, and may order additional imaging to verify the exact reason for your pain. After considering the treatments you’ve already tried and discussing your options, Dr. Coccaro helps you find the right approach.

How do you treat a slip and fall injury?

  • Injections - anesthetic and corticosteroid injections
  • Trigger point injections
  • Regenerative medicine - stem cell, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), or prolotherapy
  • Spinal cord stimulator using Nevro HF10® or Boston Scientific systems
  • Radiofrequency ablation to disable nerves Minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD® therapy)
