Better Balance Can Help Prevent Falls

Fall prevention is a major chiropractic issue. Many of the patients we see everyday in our Glastonbury Chiropractic office have suffered from or are suffering from back or neck pain as a result of a fall.

Increased health care costs, loss of mobility, and loss of independence of many older patients, has lead many chiropractors to seek more preventative measures regarding slips and falls.

At the heart of preventing falls is helping to restore and maintain balance. Certain exercises and activities can help stimulate nerves we call propriocoptors which help with balance.

Restoring spinal alignment can also help. Keeping pressure off nerves and restoring good posture and gait also helps substantially. This is exactly what a chiropractor does. By adjusting the spine to correct alignment, pressure is taken off the nervous system and the body can work at its best.
