Auburn Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause great harm or little harm at all. Falling once surely can increase the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information underscore that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. always questions our Auburn chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen lately. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is in favor of interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is really good at relieving Auburn back pain or neck pain that results.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. Each scenario carries a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can cause a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is not uncommon. Researchers have done research studies involving exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials reported on non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% decrease in people who fell, a 13% reduction in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old 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 reported that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention.

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can appreciate Auburn fall prevention strategies as falls can be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries put at risk people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are a problem. A workplace trial of 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 techniques for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely and how to stop falls.
