Montreal 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 raise the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information underscore that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic always asks our Montreal chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic backs interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is really good at relieving Montreal back pain or neck pain that ensues.

OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks live 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 result in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is common. 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 involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to improving strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are 3D like 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% reduction in people who fell, a 13% reduction in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old that used a judo inspired exercise program which taught them how to fall and how to prevent falls showed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They found that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic would support our older Montreal patients’ continued exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!

YOUNGER FOLKS AND FALLS

Younger folks can benefit from Montreal fall prevention strategies as falls may be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries endanger people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are an issue. A workplace trial that lasted 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 skills for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They gained techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to prevent falls. (4) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic supports exercise for all Montreal chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps alleviate fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
