Fall Risk. It’s a actual risk for many Plainville folks today, particularly in folks who are over 65. Falls cause pain. Falls are costly. Falls unsettle life. Back pain and neck pain affect the risk of falls and start discussions of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Layden Chiropractic. Layden Chiropractic treats many Plainville back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Layden Chiropractic offers some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the path for Plainville chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay on their feet!


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 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 with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Layden Chiropractic helps with both pain and balance in Plainville chiropractic patients.


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