Baton Rouge Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause great harm or not much harm at all. Falling once certainly can raise the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Spine & Sports Rehab Center always inquires our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Spine & Sports Rehab Center supports interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Spine & Sports Rehab Center is quite good at relieving Baton Rouge back pain or neck pain that results.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. 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 usual. Researchers have put effort into research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials reported on non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% drop 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 revealed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall methods. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center would support our older Baton Rouge patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can appreciate Baton Rouge 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 a problem. A workplace trial that lasted 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 techniques for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They gained techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to prevent falls. (4) Spine & Sports Rehab Center supports exercise for all Baton Rouge chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Spine & Sports Rehab Center helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
