Fernandina Beach Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur 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 a concern, a concern that is age blind. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic always questions our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic supports interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is quite good at relieving Fernandina Beach back pain or neck pain that results.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home by themselves and with others or in community-based housing. Each situation has 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 common. Researchers have put effort into research studies looking at exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional 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% drop in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that used a judo inspired exercise program which taught them how to fall and how to prevent falls revealed 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic would encourage our older Fernandina Beach patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Fernandina Beach fall prevention strategies as falls can be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries jeopardize 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 set out to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing skills for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They gained techniques in how to fall safely and how to stop falls. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic supports exercise for all Fernandina Beach chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
