Williamson Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause great harm or not much harm at all. Falling once certainly can increase the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Apple Country Chiropractic always questions our Williamson chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen lately. Apple Country Chiropractic backs interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Apple Country Chiropractic is really good at relieving Williamson back pain or neck pain that develops.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live at home alone and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each scenario has 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 common. Researchers have organized 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 geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that implemented a judo inspired exercise program which taught them how to fall and how to prevent falls revealed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic would support our older Williamson patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Williamson fall prevention strategies as falls can 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 set out to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing skills for a fall. Participants improved physically and psychologically. They gained techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to stop falls. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic supports exercise for all Williamson chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Apple Country Chiropractic helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
