Nashua Fall Prevention and Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

September 08, 2020

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


Older folks reside at home by themselves and with others or in community-based housing. 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 organized research studies looking at exercise interventions that decrease the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older folks encompassed planned, structured, repetitive physical activity geared toward improving strength, gait, balance and mood as well as decreasing falls. Some interventions tested are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. A meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits even so: an 11% reduction in people who fell, a 13% reduction in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old that used 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 discovered that such practices worked, particularly right after the intervention. (3) Moriarty Chiropractic would support our older Nashua patients’ continued exercising to extend these fall-prevention and fall-fear-reducing advantages!


Younger folks can benefit from Nashua fall prevention strategies as falls may be just as detrimental to them. Falls and fall-related injuries put at risk 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 skills for a fall. Participants improved physically and psychologically. They learned techniques in how to fall safely as well as how to stop falls. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic supports exercise for all Nashua chiropractic family members, young and old, to keep strong and healthy in the face of challenges like falls. Moriarty Chiropractic helps ease fall-related back pain and neck pain, too.
