Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with Murfreesboro Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It’s a actual risk for many Murfreesboro folks today, especially in folks who are over 65. Falls trigger pain. Falls are expensive. Falls disrupt life. Back pain and neck pain influence the risk of falls and initiate discussions of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Most Chiropractic Clinic. Most Chiropractic Clinic treats many Murfreesboro back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Most Chiropractic Clinic offers some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the path for Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay on their feet!


Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more trouble doing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can go from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a practical speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary to do these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are known to have more postural sway when their eyes are closed or their vision is somehow concealed. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic helps with both pain and balance in Murfreesboro chiropractic patients.


Of note, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients obtain care from a chiropractor like your Murfreesboro chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic knows the risks associated with falls and fully comprehends the impact of pain and balance on fall risk. Most Chiropractic Clinic recognizes Murfreesboro chiropractic patients’ movements whenever they are in the office and sees any red flags for fall risk. Murfreesboro chiropractic patients with Murfreesboro back pain who discover that they are a bit unbalanced and at risk of falls are not alone! Most Chiropractic Clinic has a few simple exercises to improve balance and proprioception which then help prevent falls.  A recent study shares that stabilizing training reduced pain and disability. Balance training improved balance. (5) Even a little improvement in balance and stability is a big help.
