Lynchburg Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can trigger great harm or little harm at all. Falling once surely can raise the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information highlight the fact that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Palmer Chiropractic Center always asks our Lynchburg chiropractic patients if they have fallen lately. Palmer 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, Palmer Chiropractic Center is really good at relieving Lynchburg back pain or neck pain that results.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. Each situation has a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can end in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is common. Researchers have put effort into research studies looking at exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials reported on non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old that implemented 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 discovered that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center would support our older Lynchburg patients’ continued exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can appreciate Lynchburg 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 that lasted 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 gained techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to prevent falls. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center supports exercise for all Lynchburg chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Palmer Chiropractic Center helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
