In this video, we look at falls in older adults and chiropractic.
Every year, 1/3 of older people have a fall – and falls are the leading cause of injury related hospital admission in older adults. Many researchers believe that chiropractic care can help you maintain balance and reduce risk of falls. Because older adults have a harder time processing multisensory information (things like sight and sound at the same time), they can be more likely to fall. A study found that adults who received long term chiropractic care improved in processing multisensory information and were less likely to fall.
