Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with Tarrytown Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It is a real risk for many Tarrytown folks today, especially in folks who are over 65. Falls trigger pain. Falls are costly. Falls unsettle life. Back pain and neck pain influence the risk of falls and start discussions of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Tarrytown Chiropractic. Tarrytown Chiropractic treats many Tarrytown back pain and neck pain patients who have higher risks of falls. Tarrytown Chiropractic has some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the way for Tarrytown chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay on their feet!


Chronic low back pain sufferers have more trouble performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can change 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 needed to perform 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 in some way obscured. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic helps with both pain and balance in Tarrytown chiropractic patients.


Certainly, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients obtain care from a chiropractor like your Tarrytown chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic has great knowledge of the risks associated with falls and fully comprehends the impact of pain and balance on fall risk.
