West Palm Beach Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can trigger much harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly can raise the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Chiropractic Care always questions our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen lately. Chiropractic Care supports interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Chiropractic Care is really good at relieving West Palm Beach back pain or neck pain that develops.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live at home by themselves and with others or in community-based housing. Each scenario 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 organized research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to improving strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% reduction in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old that implemented a judo inspired exercise program which taught the participants how to fall and how to prevent falls revealed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall methods. (2) They discovered that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Chiropractic Care would encourage our older West Palm Beach patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can appreciate West Palm Beach fall prevention strategies as falls can be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries threaten people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are a problem. A workplace trial of 10 weeks for working age adults with a judo-inspired exercise program set out to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing skills for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They practiced techniques in how to fall safely and how to stop falls. (4) Chiropractic Care supports exercise for all West Palm Beach chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Chiropractic Care helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
