Severna Park Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can cause much 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 a concern, a concern that is age blind. Back And Neck Care Center always inquires our Severna Park chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Back And Neck Care Center is in favor of interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Back And Neck Care Center is quite good at relieving Severna Park back pain or neck pain that develops.


Older folks live at home alone and with others or in community-based accommodations. Each scenario has a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can result in a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is usual. Researchers have put effort into research studies involving 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 oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% drop 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 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 methods. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Back And Neck Care Center would support our older Severna Park patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!


Younger folks can benefit from Severna Park fall prevention strategies as falls can be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries put at risk people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are an issue. A workplace trial of 10 weeks for working age adults with a judo-inspired exercise program set out to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing methods for a fall. Participants improved physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Back And Neck Care Center supports exercise for all Severna Park chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Back And Neck Care Center helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
