Fall Risk. It is a actual risk for many Millville folks today, particularly in the over 65-year old group. Falls trigger pain. Falls are costly. Falls unsettle life. Back pain and neck pain modify the risk of falls and begin discussions of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Wilson Family Chiropractic. Wilson Family Chiropractic cares for many Millville back pain and neck pain patients who are at risk of falling. Wilson Family Chiropractic has some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and help]16] Millville chiropractic patients grow stronger and stay on their feet!


Chronic low back pain sufferers have more trouble doing “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 rate. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary 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 in some way obscured. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic helps with both pain and balance in Millville chiropractic patients.


Certainly, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients get care from a chiropractor like your Millville chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic has great knowledge of the risks associated with falls and understands the impact of pain and balance on fall risk.
