Chiropractic Care and Falls

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three individuals over 65 years old falls each year. Further, 2.5 million of these falls lead to emergency room visits annually. These incidents can have devastating results, from hip fractures, to head injuries, or even death. The CDC reports that the number of deaths from unintentional falls have risen by approximately 25 percent from 2004-2013, and medical expenditures for falls cost upwards of $34 billion annually. An important step in preventing falls is to identify why people fall. There are many reasons individuals can sustain a fall, from strength, to reflexes, to sight, and more. One growing area of research is the effect that chiropractic treatment may have on minimizing risk factors for falls, particularly in the elderly. A study released recently by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics assessed this potential through a program that attempted to improve sensorimotor function, proprioception (the sense of the ankle joint's position), and other outcomes in elderly participants after 12 weeks of chiropractic therapy. Those receiving chiropractic care were compared to participants who received no intervention. After 12 weeks, participants who received chiropractic care saw significant improvements over those who did not. The group who received treatment had improved stepping reaction time, proprioception, and health-related quality of life. While the researchers acknowledged that these improvements do not prove that these individuals are at lower risk for falling, the study does strongly suggest that chiropractic care can minimize potential risk factors for sustaining a fall in the elderly population. The authors concluded with a call for further research on the promising topic of minimizing fall risk through chiropractic care.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Children?

Children are different than adults. Their growing bodies have different needs, and children require a different medical approach than their adult counterparts. Pediatric medicine, therefore, specializes in treatment tailored specifically to the needs of children, whether those needs are dental, orthopedic, or emotional. Chiropractic care is no exception, and can be an incredibly beneficial component of a growing child's care. This month, the American Chiropractic Academy (ACA) published a statement that "pediatric chiropractic care, when administered properly, is effective, safe and gentle." This statement came on the heels of a report last month from the Chiropractors' Association of Australia (CAA) about the demonstrated safety of childhood chiropractic care in Australia. Both the ACA and the CAA illustrated the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for children in scientific literature. Large studies from the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics show that serious adverse events in pediatric chiropractic care are extremely rare. Furthermore, chiropractic treatment has been investigated as an effective approach for colic in infants, as well as for suboptimal breastfeeding. A cross-sectional survey of 956 chiropractors in Europe revealed that pediatric chiropractors also treat gastrointestinal, immune-related, and neurologic conditions. There is overwhelming evidence that with proper application, chiropractic care for children can be a safe and effective treatment for many conditions. Most chiropractors have pediatric patients, and extensive specialized training in pediatric chiropractic care ensures the best possible outcomes. Children rely on a robust healthcare team for their best overall health, and chiropractors are a valuable member of that ensemble. Strict regulation, rigorous training, and precise guidelines ensure that children are receiving the best, safest chiropractic care to support their optimal well-being.

The Cost of Your Lower Back Pain

Chronic lower back pain is incredibly common. In fact, up to 50% of individuals may be affected by low back pain at some point, which has spurred the Global Burden of Disease Study to investigate worldwide impairment from this pain. A common type is known as "uncomplicated low back pain," which does not radiate to other areas of the body, and is not associated with damage to the spine or other structures. This pain can be debilitating and expensive, with the global costs estimated at $20 billion annually. New research suggests there may be therapies to lessen both the costs and discomfort of low back pain. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published a study that revealed chiropractic treatments significantly lowered costs for patients with low back pain. The researchers found that patients treated by a both a DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) and an MD spent hundreds of dollars less than back patients treated exclusively by an MD, or even an MD and a physical therapist. These findings show the potential for chiropractic treatment to improve uncomplicated lower back pain in a way that is cost-effective and sustainable.
