Manahawkin Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can trigger much harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly can raise the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information indicate that falls are am issue, an issue that is age blind. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center always asks our Manahawkin chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center supports interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is really good at relieving Manahawkin back pain or neck pain that develops.


Older folks reside 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 result in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is common. Researchers have organized research studies involving exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old 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 discovered that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center would encourage our older Manahawkin patients to keep exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing benefits!


Younger folks can appreciate Manahawkin 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 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 techniques for a fall. Participants got better physically and psychologically. They gathered techniques in how to fall safely and how to stop falls.
