Burlington and Hamilton Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Falls can occur at any age. Falls can trigger much harm or not much 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. Spinal Care Clinic always inquires our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients if they’ve fallen recently. Spinal Care Clinic backs interventions like exercise that may decrease the fear of falls, the impact of falls and the incidence of falls. Plus, Spinal Care Clinic is quite good at relieving Burlington and Hamilton back pain or neck pain that results.


Older folks live at home by themselves 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 result in a fall. For these older friends and neighbors and relatives, the fear of falling is not uncommon. 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 involved planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to improving 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. A meta-analysis of exercise trials presented non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% decrease in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of aged 60-88 year olds that implemented a judo inspired exercise program which taught the participants how to fall and how to prevent falls showed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall techniques. (2) They discovered that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Spinal Care Clinic would encourage our older Burlington and Hamilton patients to keep exercising to prolong these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!


Younger people can appreciate Burlington and Hamilton fall prevention strategies as falls may be detrimental to them, too. Falls and fall-related injuries put at risk people at all ages. Falls at work and at home are an issue. A workplace trial of 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 methods for a fall. Participants recovered physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely and how to avert falls. (4) Spinal Care Clinic supports exercise for all Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Spinal Care Clinic helps ease fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
