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.
