Plainville Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause much harm or little harm at all. Falling once surely can increase the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Layden Chiropractic always questions our Plainville chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Layden Chiropractic backs interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Layden Chiropractic is really good at relieving Plainville back pain or neck pain that develops.

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 done research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials presented non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% decrease in people who fell, a 13% reduction in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old that used a judo inspired exercise program which taught them how to fall and how to prevent falls showed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They reported that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Layden Chiropractic would support our older Plainville patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Plainville fall prevention strategies as falls can be just as detrimental to them. 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 worked on improving physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing skills for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Layden Chiropractic supports exercise for all Plainville chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Layden Chiropractic helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
