Oxford Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause great harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly can raise the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information point out that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Satterwhite Chiropractic always questions our Oxford chiropractic patients if they have fallen lately. Satterwhite Chiropractic supports interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Satterwhite Chiropractic is really good at relieving Oxford back pain or neck pain that ensues.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home by themselves 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 result in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is not unusual. Researchers have done research studies involving exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% decrease 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 them 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 right after the intervention. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic would encourage our older Oxford patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Oxford fall prevention strategies as falls may be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries threaten 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 was designed to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing methods for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic supports exercise for all Oxford chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Satterwhite Chiropractic helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
