Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It’s a real risk for many West Palm Beach folks today, particularly in the over 65-year old group. Falls trigger pain. Falls are costly. Falls unsettle life. Back pain and neck pain affect the risk of falls and initiate conversations of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Moses Chiropractic. Moses Chiropractic treats many West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Moses Chiropractic has some advice to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the way for West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay on their feet!


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 do these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are noted to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain affects 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) Moses Chiropractic helps with both pain and balance in West Palm Beach chiropractic patients.


Of note, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients look for care from a chiropractor like your West Palm Beach chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Moses Chiropractic has great knowledge of the risks associated with falls and fully comprehends the impact of pain and balance on fall risk. Moses Chiropractic recognizes West Palm Beach chiropractic patients’ movements whenever they are in the office and sees any red flags for fall risk. West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with West Palm Beach back pain who discover that they are a bit unbalanced and at risk of falls are not alone!
