San Jose Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can trigger much harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly 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. Chiropractic Solutions always questions our San Jose chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Chiropractic Solutions is in favor of interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Chiropractic Solutions is really good at relieving San Jose 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 situation carries a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can result in a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is usual. Researchers have put effort into research studies involving exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% decrease in people who fell, a 13% drop in falls, a 19% reduction in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old 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 techniques. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Chiropractic Solutions would encourage our older San Jose patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can benefit from San Jose fall prevention strategies as falls may be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries threaten people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are a problem. A workplace trial of 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 recovered physically and psychologically. They gained techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Chiropractic Solutions supports exercise for all San Jose chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Chiropractic Solutions helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
