Fort Wayne Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can trigger great harm or not much harm at all. Falling once surely can raise the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information underscore that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic always inquires our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen lately. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is in favor of interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is really good at relieving Fort Wayne back pain or neck pain that develops.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each situation carries 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 not uncommon. Researchers have done research studies looking at exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tried 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% drop 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 used 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 discovered that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic would support our older Fort Wayne patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can appreciate Fort Wayne fall prevention strategies as falls may be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries jeopardize 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 worked on improving physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing skills for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They practiced techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic supports exercise for all Fort Wayne chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
