Fort Wayne Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

September 08, 2020

Falls can happen 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 indicate that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc always inquires our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc backs interventions like exercise that may reduce the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is quite good at relieving Fort Wayne back pain or neck pain that develops.


Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. Each scenario carries 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 unusual. Researchers have organized research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks 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. A meta-analysis of exercise trials reported on non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old 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 discovered that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc would encourage our older Fort Wayne patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!


Younger folks can appreciate Fort Wayne fall prevention strategies as falls can be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries threaten 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 worked on improving physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing techniques for a fall. Participants improved physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely and how to avert falls. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc supports exercise for all Fort Wayne chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps relieve fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
