Vancouver Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can trigger great harm or not much harm at all. Falling once certainly can raise the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information point out that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Vancouver Disc Centers always inquires our Vancouver chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen lately. Vancouver Disc Centers is in favor of interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Vancouver Disc Centers is quite good at relieving Vancouver back pain or neck pain that results.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live at home by themselves and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each scenario has a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can end in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is common. 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 persons incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% reduction 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 methods. (2) They reported that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers would support our older Vancouver patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can appreciate Vancouver fall prevention strategies as falls may 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 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 methods for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers supports exercise for all Vancouver chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Vancouver Disc Centers helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
