Paramus Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can cause great harm or not much harm at all. Falling once surely can increase the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center always questions our Paramus chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is in favor of interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is really good at relieving Paramus back pain or neck pain that results.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside 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 folks, the fear of falling is not uncommon. Researchers have organized research studies involving exercise interventions that reduce 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 as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% reduction in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old 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 techniques. (2) They reported that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center would support our older Paramus patients’ continued exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger people can appreciate Paramus fall prevention strategies as falls may be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries endanger 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 methods for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They practiced techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to stop falls. (4) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center supports exercise for all Paramus chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
