Malverne Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can cause much 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 a concern, a concern that is age blind. Malverne Health & Wellness always inquires our Malverne chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Malverne Health & Wellness is in favor of interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Malverne Health & Wellness is quite good at relieving Malverne back pain or neck pain that ensues.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live at home alone and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each scenario carries 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 usual. Researchers have organized 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 incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that implemented a judo inspired exercise program which taught the participants how to fall and how to prevent falls revealed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall methods. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness would encourage our older Malverne patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can appreciate Malverne fall prevention strategies as falls may be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries put at risk 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 set out to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing techniques for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They practiced techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to avert falls. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness supports exercise for all Malverne chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Malverne Health & Wellness helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
