Tonawanda Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause great harm or little harm at all. Falling once surely can increase the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information underscore that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation always questions our Tonawanda chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation backs interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is quite good at relieving Tonawanda back pain or neck pain that ensues.


Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. Each situation carries a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can result in a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is not unusual. Researchers have put effort into research studies involving 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 3D,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% drop 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 the participants how to fall and how to prevent falls revealed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They reported that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation would encourage our older Tonawanda patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!


Younger people can appreciate Tonawanda fall prevention strategies as falls may be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries jeopardize people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are an issue. A workplace trial of 10 weeks for working age adults with a judo-inspired exercise program was designed 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 as well as how to stop falls. (4) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation supports exercise for all Tonawanda chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
