Largo Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can cause much harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly can increase the intensity of fear of falling again. All these bits of information highlight the fact that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Hollstrom & Associates Inc always questions our Largo chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Hollstrom & Associates Inc backs interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Hollstrom & Associates Inc is really good at relieving Largo back pain or neck pain that develops.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live 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 friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is not unusual. Researchers have put effort into research studies involving exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are 3D like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials presented non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% decrease in people who fell, a 13% drop in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that implemented 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 reported that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc would encourage our older Largo patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Largo 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 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 methods for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to prevent falls. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc supports exercise for all Largo chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
