New Roads Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can cause much harm or little harm at all. Falling once surely can raise the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information point out that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. New Roads Chiropractic Center always asks our New Roads chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. New Roads Chiropractic Center is in favor of interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, New Roads Chiropractic Center is quite good at relieving New Roads back pain or neck pain that ensues.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home by themselves and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each situation carries a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can end in a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is usual. Researchers have put effort into research studies involving exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are three dimensional like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% drop in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that used a judo inspired exercise program which taught the participants how to fall and how to prevent falls showed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center would support our older New Roads patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can appreciate New Roads fall prevention strategies as falls can be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries endanger people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are an issue. A workplace trial of 10 weeks for working age adults with a judo-inspired exercise program was designed to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing methods for a fall. Participants improved physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to avert falls. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center supports exercise for all New Roads chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. New Roads Chiropractic Center helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
