Fall Risk. It is a genuine risk for many New Roads folks today, particularly in the over 65-year old group. Falls cause pain. Falls are expensive. Falls unsettle life. Back pain and neck pain modify the risk of falls and start conversations of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center.

New Roads Chiropractic Center has some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the way for New Roads chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay balanced!


Chronic low back pain sufferers have more trouble doing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can go from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a realistic speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation needed to do these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are noted to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is somehow concealed. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center helps with both pain and balance in New Roads chiropractic patients.


Certainly, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients seek care from a chiropractor like your New Roads chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center has great knowledge of the risks associated with falls and fully comprehends the impact of pain and balance on fall risk.
