Fall Prevention and Balance Managed with Toronto Chiropractic Care

Fall Risk. It’s a actual risk for many Toronto folks today, particularly 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 begin discussions of fall prevention among back pain patients and their healthcare providers like yours at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre cares for many Toronto back pain and neck pain patients who are at risk of falling. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has some tips to take the risk out of the fall risk and facilitate the path for Toronto chiropractic patients to grow stronger and stay on their feet!


Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more concern when doing “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 reasonable 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 found to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps with both pain and balance in Toronto chiropractic patients.


Of note, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients obtain care from a chiropractor like your Toronto chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has great knowledge of the risks associated with falls and fully comprehends the impact of pain and balance on fall risk. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre notices Toronto chiropractic patients’ movements whenever they are in the office and takes note of any concerns of fall risk.
