OLDER FOLKS AND FALLS

Older folks reside at home alone and with others or in community-based housing. Each situation has a risk of falling. Rugs, pets, misreading steps, or any number of things can cause a fall. For these older folks, the fear of falling is common. Researchers have done research studies looking at exercise interventions that reduce the fear of falling as well as the risk of falling. Such trials with community-dwelling older persons incorporated planned, structured, repetitive physical activity oriented to enhancing strength, gait, balance and mood in addition to decreasing falls. Some interventions tried are three dimensional,for example Tai Chi, Yoga, resistance training, and balance work. One meta-analysis of exercise trials detailed non-statistically significant benefits but benefits nonetheless: an 11% drop in people who fell, a 13% decrease in falls, a 19% drop in injuries from falls. (1) Another study of people between 60 and 88 years old that used a judo inspired exercise program which taught them how to fall and how to prevent falls revealed significant improvements in physical performance, fall-related self-efficacy and fall methods. (2) They discovered that such practices worked, particularly immediately following the intervention.
