West Palm Beach Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can trigger 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 highlight the fact that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Moses Chiropractic always inquires our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Moses Chiropractic supports interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Moses Chiropractic is quite good at relieving West Palm Beach back pain or neck pain that ensues.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live at home by themselves 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 friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is usual. Researchers have put effort into research studies involving exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials presented non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% decrease in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% reduction 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 found that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Moses Chiropractic would support our older West Palm Beach patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can appreciate West Palm Beach fall prevention strategies as falls can be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries endanger people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are an issue. A workplace trial that lasted 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 techniques for a fall. Participants improved physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to avert falls. (4) Moses Chiropractic supports exercise for all West Palm Beach chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Moses Chiropractic helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
