Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with Brooks Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It’s a actual risk for many Brooks folks today, especially in folks who are over 65. Falls trigger pain. Falls are expensive. Falls unsettle life. Back pain and neck pain modify the risk of falls and start conversations of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Soft Health and Healing Clinic. Soft Health and Healing Clinic treats many Brooks back pain and neck pain patients who are at risk of falling. Soft Health and Healing Clinic has some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and help]16] Brooks chiropractic patients grow stronger and stay balanced!


Chronic low back pain sufferers have more concern when performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can move 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 noted to have more postural sway when their eyes are closed or their vision is somehow obscured. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps with both pain and balance in Brooks chiropractic patients.


Certainly, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients get care from a chiropractor like your Brooks chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows the risks associated with falls and understands the impact of pain and balance on fall risk. Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes Brooks chiropractic patients’ movements whenever they are in the office and sees any concerns of fall risk. Brooks chiropractic patients with Brooks back pain who discover that they are a bit unbalanced and at risk of falls are not alone! Soft Health and Healing Clinic has a few simple exercises to improve balance and proprioception which then help prevent falls.  A recent study reports that stabilizing training reduced pain and disability. Balance training improved balance. (5) Even a little improvement in balance and stability is an important help.
