Buffalo, NY Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can cause great harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly can increase the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Disc Centers Of America always inquires our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently.

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. Each scenario has a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can end in a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is usual. Researchers have put effort into research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D 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% reduction 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 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 reported that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention.
