Manchester 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 surely can increase the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information underscore that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries always asks our Manchester chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries backs interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live at home by themselves and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each situation 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 not uncommon. Researchers have organized research studies looking at exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that implemented a judo inspired exercise program which taught the participants how to fall and how to prevent falls showed 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries would encourage our older Manchester patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can benefit from Manchester fall prevention strategies as falls can be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries put at risk 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 skills for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to avert falls.
