Pensacola Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can trigger great harm or little 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. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center always questions our Pensacola chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen lately. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is in favor of interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is really good at relieving Pensacola back pain or neck pain that develops.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone 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 end in a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is not unusual. Researchers have done research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D,for example 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% drop 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center would encourage our older Pensacola patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Pensacola fall prevention strategies as falls may be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries endanger 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 was designed to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing techniques for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely and how to stop falls. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center supports exercise for all Pensacola chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
