Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It’s a genuine risk for many West Palm Beach folks today, particularly in folks who are over 65. Falls cause pain. Falls are expensive. Falls disrupt life. Back pain and neck pain modify the risk of falls and initiate discussions of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic Care cares for many West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Chiropractic Care has some advice to limit the risk of the fall risk and facilitate the path for West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay upright!


Chronic low back pain sufferers have more concern when performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can move from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a realistic rate. 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 known to have more postural sway when their eyes are closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain influences 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) Chiropractic Care helps with both pain and balance in West Palm Beach chiropractic patients.


Certainly, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients get care from a chiropractor like your West Palm Beach chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Chiropractic Care knows the risks associated with falls and fully comprehends the impact of pain and balance on fall risk. Chiropractic Care notices West Palm Beach chiropractic patients’ movements whenever they are in the office and notes any red flags for fall risk. West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with West Palm Beach back pain who discover that they are a bit unbalanced and at risk of falls are not alone! Chiropractic Care has a few easy exercises to increase balance and proprioception which then help prevent falls.  A recent study reports that stabilizing training decreased pain and disability. Balance training increased balance. (5) Even a little improvement in balance and stability is a big help.
