Murfreesboro Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can happen at any age. Falls can trigger great harm or little harm at all. Falling once certainly can raise the level of fear of falling again. All these bits of information highlight the fact that falls are a concern, a concern that is age blind. Most Chiropractic Clinic always asks our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients if they have fallen recently. Most Chiropractic Clinic supports interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Most Chiropractic Clinic is really good at relieving Murfreesboro back pain or neck pain that results.


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 folks, the fear of falling is not uncommon. Researchers have done research studies involving exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling and the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are three dimensional like Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials described non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% decrease 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 implemented 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 methods. (2) They reported that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic would encourage our older Murfreesboro patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!


Younger folks can benefit from Murfreesboro fall prevention strategies as falls can be detrimental to them, too. 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 set out to improve physical function, activity, fall-related self-efficacy and safe-landing methods for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely and how to prevent falls. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic supports exercise for all Murfreesboro chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Most Chiropractic Clinic helps ease fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
