Fall Risk. It’s a actual risk for many Tonawanda folks today, especially in folks who are over 65. Falls trigger pain. Falls are costly. Falls unsettle life.

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation treats many Tonawanda back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation offers some advice to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the way for Tonawanda chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay upright!

CAUSES OF Tonawanda BALANCE ISSUES

Chronic low back pain sufferers have more trouble 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 practical speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation needed to perform 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 somehow obscured. (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) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation helps with both pain and balance in Tonawanda chiropractic patients.

HOW TO HELP BALANCE AND PREVENT FALLS

Of note, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients look for care from a chiropractor like your Tonawanda chiropractor are back pain and neck pain.
