Millville Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can cause much harm or not much harm at all. Falling once surely can increase the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information underscore that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Wilson Family Chiropractic always questions our Millville chiropractic patients if they have fallen lately. Wilson Family Chiropractic is in favor of interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Wilson Family Chiropractic is quite good at relieving Millville back pain or neck pain that ensues.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each situation carries a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can result in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is not uncommon. Researchers have organized research studies looking at exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to improving strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials presented non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% decrease in people who fell, a 13% drop in falls, a 19% drop 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 showed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They discovered that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic would encourage our older Millville patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Millville 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 a problem. 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 methods for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They practiced techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic supports exercise for all Millville chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Wilson Family Chiropractic helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
