Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with San Jose Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It’s a genuine risk for many San Jose folks today, particularly in the over 65-year old group. Falls trigger pain. Falls are expensive. Falls disrupt life. Back pain and neck pain affect the risk of falls and begin conversations of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Chiropractic Solutions. Chiropractic Solutions treats many San Jose back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Chiropractic Solutions has some tips to limit the risk of the fall risk and facilitate the path for San Jose chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay on their feet!


Chronic low back pain sufferers have more trouble doing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can change from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a practical speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation needed to do these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are known to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Chiropractic Solutions helps with both pain and balance in San Jose chiropractic patients.


Of note, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients look for care from a chiropractor like your San Jose chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Chiropractic Solutions knows the risks associated with falls and understands the impact of pain and balance on fall risk. Chiropractic Solutions notices San Jose chiropractic patients’ movements whenever they are in the office and takes note of any concerns of fall risk. San Jose chiropractic patients with San Jose back pain who find themselves with balance issues and fall risks are not alone! Chiropractic Solutions offers a few easy exercises to increase balance and proprioception which in turn help prevent falls.  A recent study reports that stabilizing training reduced pain and disability. Balance training increased balance. (5) Just a little improvement in balance and stability is an important help.
