Get Your Balance Back
With regard to balance improvement there can be many factors that need to be considered. Your proprioceptive input, Vestibular function, muscle strength and co-ordination just to name a few.
A newly published trial (1) has shown that 12 weeks of chiropractic care in a group of older patients resulted in improvements in their sensory and motor functions that are important for falls risk, as well as improvement in the physical component of quality of life. The study, the main trial in chiropractic researcher Dr. Kelly Holt’s PhD, states:
“Falls account for more than 80% of injury-related hospital admissions in people older than 65 years, and they are the leading cause of injury-related death in older adults ”
