Mal de Debarquement Syndrome (MdDS)

Mal de Debarquement SyndromeMdDS is a neurological condition that may occur after a flight, a boat trip or when your body sustains prolonged periods of movement in multiple flights of motion simultaneously. There are also occasions when this condition occurs spontaneously.

You can imagine stepping out of a plane, a boat or train and you constantly start bobbing, swaying or rocking like a buoy on the water. Most individuals experience these disorientating sensations for a few minutes after disembarkation.

Although motion triggers are the most common causes of this condition. Some individuals develop MdDS signs and symptoms for other reasons, such as after surgery and playing computer games.

From the research, most individuals can experience this condition after long trips. However, there is no any relationship between the distance covered while on your trip and how long the symptoms last or how bad they are. While any motion may lead to this condition, most in the medical field do not know what is really behind it.

The Symptoms of MdDS

The main signs of Mal de Debarquement may include bobbing, rocking or swaying but there is no reason for it. Sometimes you may feel unsteady or stagger a bit. Other signs and symptoms include:

• Confusion

• Anxiety

• Depression

• Feeling very tired

• Having focused difficulties

Some of the symptoms may disappear when you ride in a train or a car, but they will come back after you stop moving and they can even get worse with fast movement, stress, tiredness, flickering lights, being in a closed-in space, trying to be still when going to sleep and intense visual activity such as playing computer video games.

Treatment Options for MdDS

This condition has been researched and recognized for decades, and the main cause has been elusive, and most researchers across the globe continue to hypothesize. Many studies have suggested a link to the variant of a migraine or related to trains, car, flight, or ship motion sickness.

In most parts of the world, these conditions are limited, and patients are commonly referred for chiropractic treatment.

What is Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal StenosisSpinal stenosis, also known as central stenosis, is a condition that is caused by an abnormal narrowing of your spinal canal. When this occurs, your spine can end up becoming pinched and aggravated, leading to radiating pain, numbness and weakness in parts of your spine, arms and legs. Although it is more common in the lower back we also see cases from the neck.

Cervical Central Stenosis Symptoms

• Leg symptoms like weakness, tingling, pain or pins and needle numbness (especially if your back examination is normal). If you have a lower back problem, it can cause these symptoms as well.
• Nerve symptoms in both of your arms like weakness, tingling, pain or pins and needle numbness, symptoms that are normally seen in lateral stenosis, but they affect both arms.
• Other leg symptoms like stiffness, your legs feeling ‘wooden’ and ‘rigid’ and having difficulty in keeping your balance, a tendency of walking with a wider stance and problems walking.

Causes

• The most common cause of central stenosis is osteoarthritis of the spine (wear and tear of your spine) and thickening of ligaments within the spinal canal. Spurs may form from your joints and vertebral bodies, then it may begin to encroach on your central canal (ependymal canal).
• Trauma, resulting in fractures, dislocations and bleeds.
• Disc injuries are also a common cause; for instance, longstanding degenerative disc injuries or acute, sudden disc herniations.
• Although it is rare, things such as a tumour and cysts can cause this condition.
• Also, you can be born with a narrower central canal, which increases your risk of having stenosis, congenital stenosis.

Chiropractic Treatment May Help Symptoms Of Cervical Central Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is potentially an extremely serious condition. If severe, it can end up causing significant nerve symptoms that can be permanent if you don’t quickly seek help to deal with the problem. You might even require surgery. That’s why your chiropractor will likely refer you for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to establish the cause and severity of the compression. If the symptoms and compression are mild, surgery is often not the first place to start, conservative management like chiropractic treatment is the ideal option.

Spinal Manipulation

One of the primary treatment methods chiropractors use to treat this condition is spinal manipulation. This technique uses gentle hand movements in subtly changing the vertebrae of your spine positions. Spinal manipulation will take pressure off your spine and help to relieve your pain and discomfort.

Your chiropractor will use various other techniques to help you remain active and comfortable. Here are some of them:

•Stretches and Exercises

– Your chiropractor will teach you how to do stretches and exercises that will reinforce spinal manipulation effects. Stretches and exercises will allow you to take control of your healing by giving you something to work on your free time when you are at home.

•Massage Therapy

– This works together with spinal manipulation technique to improve your blood flow and heal all the injured parts of your body. Also, massage therapy improves the quality of your life by increasing your level of comfort.

•Lifestyle Advice

– Your chiropractor will give you lifestyle advice to help you avoid problems that can exacerbate your condition. Changing sleeping habits, using better chairs, changing postures plus other lifestyle adjustments will help you live a happier life.

 

Don’t Put up with Vertigo – See a Chiropractor

vertigoVertigo affects about 40 percent of people who are over 40 years old at least once in their life. It can be debilitating and even stop you from enjoying life.

What Is Vertigo?

It’s a sensation that you feel when you move, spin in circles or stand very quickly. Typically, you feel like the space or room is spinning or swaying when in fact you’re sitting or standing still. You can experience this feeling of imbalance plus lack of control for several minutes or even several hours.

Causes of Vertigo

BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), which is also known as Positional Vertigo or Benign Vertigo, is among the most common conditions that cause dizziness and vertigo.

Generally, approximately, 20 percent of all dizziness cases are due to Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo and about 50 per cent of all dizziness cases in older patients is as a result of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo.

Other common causes of vertigo include labyrinthitis or vestibular neuronitis, which is the inflammation of your inner ear. Also, there are other causes of vertigo that are more serious like tumours, stroke and neurological diseases like MS (multiple sclerosis). With these conditions, other symptoms may also be present, and they’re often picked up during a chiropractic or neurological examination.

Causes of BPPV

BPPV usually begins after the following:

• Use of ototoxic medications such as gentamicin
• Due to an ageing process
• A virus or severe cold
• A head injury

In under 50-year-olds, whiplash and head trauma are the most common causes. The most common cause in older people is often the degeneration of the inner ear vestibular system. With advancing age, BPPV gets more common. In 50 per cent of all cases, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is called “idiopathic”, meaning that it occurs without any reason.

BPPV Diagnosis

Chiropractors can diagnose this disorder after they have taken a full case history, then doing a physical as well as a neurological examination. At Neuroworks not only do we use tests like the Dix–Hallpike test or Nylen–Barany test/manoeuvre, are used in differentiating peripheral from central vertigo but we have a state of the art balance testing lab in which we have computerised video nystagmography including air calorics, head movement sensors and a computerised balance testing platform. We use this equipment not only to objectively make a more exact diagnosis than physical examination but also to monitor progress.

BPPV Treatment

BPPV is treated using certain repositioning manoeuvres. Chiropractors are trained to do the Semont or Epley manoeuvre, a simple technique that will cure your BPPV.

Your chiropractor is going to move you into certain positions, which depends on the previous assessment outcome, using gravity in moving the calcium carbonate (CaCO3) crystals away into a specific area of your inner ear where they’ll reduce your  symptoms.

That will be followed by home exercises (Vestibular rehabilitation exercises).

Otoconia (crystals) formation in your inner ear canals will reduce under these conditions, hence lessening the probability of future attacks. This treatment is effective and within 3 to 4 treatments, 80 percent of the patients are symptom-free. If you need a highly experienced Ealing chiropractor, feel free to contact Neuroworks Chiropractic Clinic.

 

Can Neurological Rehabilitation Help You?

Neurological RehabilitationIt might become hard to enjoy your life when you are suffering from chronic pain, headache or vertigo. Chiropractors have been trained to deal with this type of problems and can help you get on the path to full recovery using a combination of chiropractic adjustments, muscle therapies and natural neurological treatments.

Neurological Rehabilitation

Your brain is always changing, learning from your experience. Chiropractic neurological rehabilitation harnesses neuroplasticity (neural plasticity, or brain plasticity), the ability of your brain to adapt, changing its structure, function as well as connections.

Just imagine you are walking along the very path daily for several years: that path is a clearly defined track. One day you ventured off this path and walked on sand. When you look behind, you will not see a path; you will only see footprints.

Typically, these paths are similar to connections in your brain. The more you use a brain connection or a path, the more defined plus stronger it is. Your capability of creating and changing the connections in your brain, which is called neural plasticity, responsible for learning plus memory.

Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation is also known as receptor-based therapies, brain-based therapies, clinical neuroscience applications, and functional neurology.

People undergoing neurological rehabilitation usually work with a multi-disciplinary expert team because most neurological cases are complex, taking into account both physical and cognitive factor. Some Chiropractors have an extensive postgraduate university training in the field of clinical neuroscience, which positions them well to deliver suitable neurological rehabilitation programs.

Comprehensive examination includes the following:

• Functional Brain Scans – QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalograms)
• Range of motion
• Muscle tone and strength
• Posture
• Reflexes
• Coordination
• Balance
• Visual reflexes
• Motor
• Sensory
• Mental status

Tailored brain-based therapies include the following:

• Cognitive tasks and game
• Integration of retained primitive reflexes
• Sensory tricks
• Neuromodulation techniques
• Vestibular rehabilitation
• Visual tracking patterns
• Specific joint and muscle mobilisations
• Tactile stimulation

How Is Your Brain Rehabilitated?

The premise that chiropractors base their diagnoses and treatment on is known as functional neurology. Through isolating, functionally, areas of your nervous system involved with the problems you are having, your chiropractor can choose the best treatment that will balance your brain, reducing the problem as well as the symptoms. The focus is typically on the overall function of your nervous system as the ultimate treatment goal.

That is done using natural therapies like eye exercises, which will specifically activate your different brain centres; brain exercises plus the use of heat, light, sound and electric stimulation; and adjustments of your spine as well as extremities in patterns, which will activate different regions of your brain.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, headache or vertigo and need and Ealing chiropractor, visit Neuroworks Chiropractic Clinic. We can offer effective, natural treatment options to help you and speed up the recovery of your health.

Balance Retraining Assists In Improved Balance

Balance Retraining Loss of balance can result in the incapability of doing everyday activities. There are numerous reasons why you might end up losing your balance. Balance retraining exercises, however, can help you in improving balance as well as decrease the risk of injury as a result of falling.

Poor proprioception, which is a term in medicine for body awareness plus balance, is a leading cause of numerous common conditions affecting patients in our Neuroworks Chiropractic clinic every day.

What Is Proprioception?

It’s the concept of knowing exactly where your own body is in space, which is body awareness, and the capability of safely manoeuvring around your environment. It helps you to achieve, beautiful posture, quality movement as well as solid balance.

There are some parts of your body that are high in proprioceptive tissue; they include your pelvis, jaw, upper neck and feet. These areas relay messages to your brain to let your body know where precisely it is in space. Thus, if anything is wrong with one of these areas (for instance, an injury to one of your feet) that can end up changing the message that is being sent to your brain. Consequently, that can affect your balance, movement patterns as well as posture. This, in turn, can lead to pain plus injury.Here are some of the conditions that can be associated with poor proprioception:

• Headaches
• Functional Scoliosis
• Tennis Elbow
• Back pain
• Poor posture
• Neck pain
• Vertigo
• R.S.I (Repetitive strain injury)
• Ankle sprains
Falls (leading to injury as well as broken bones)

Treatment Options

Chiropractic offers treatments to help you improve proprioception, which helps many conditions that people face. Chiropractic adjustments are a powerful tool used in improving proprioception. Also, in our clinic, we are passionate regarding rehabilitation. We have numerous great methods for improving muscle strength as well as function and retraining your muscle patterns. Moreover, there are amazing exercises to stimulate your proprioceptive tissues in various areas of your body to help improve your balance.

Balance Retraining Exercises

When you’re suffering from a disorder of the inner ear, certain movements or positions can make you feel dizzy and lose balance. Vestibular rehabilitation exercises, like repeating positions and movements that cause dizziness, help your brain to get accustomed to the loss of balance reaction. That helps your brain adapt accordingly, hence the dizziness is eliminated or reduced.

Balance retraining exercises help in resolving the conflict that is between the brain and the system of the internal ear to restore the ability to balance. Since your eye muscles and ear nerve are connected, you will also have to engage in exercises for visual coordination to retrain balance. While these rehabilitation exercises are taking effect, physical exercises like yoga and tai chi are going to help you build coordination and balance further.

Building Strong Bones and Muscles

Generally, strength training exercises are vital to your health as well as your well-being. When performed consistently, these exercises will keep your bones and muscles strong and support balance. You should do strength training exercises 2-3 times on a weekly basis to maintain or build strength and also to develop a full ROM (range of motion).

You can also add a few exercises that strengthen balance to your workout, like knee marching, single-leg stances without and with your arms raised or you can step to the side while in a straight line then go back to the initial position.

If you need an experienced Ealing Chiropractor, contact the team at Neuroworks Chiropractic. You will receive individual assessments as well as tailor-made treatment plans from our experienced and well-qualified chiropractors who will integrate treatment that is unique to your needs.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help People with Sciatica

SciaticaSciatica is a condition that is characterised by pain going down your leg from your lower back. The pain may go down your back, outside, or even the front of your leg. Onset is usually sudden following activities such as heavy lifting, although gradual onset may occur as well.

Symptoms of Sciatica

• A shooting pain that often makes standing up difficult
• A constant pain in one side of your rear
• Numbness, weakness, or difficulty moving your leg or foot
• Tingling or burning running down your leg
• Pain in your rear or leg or that worsens when sitting

Usually, sciatica affects just one side of your lower body. Most of the time, the pain travels from your lower back through the back of your thigh and then down through your leg. Also, the pain may reach your toes or foot. For some people, the pain might be irritating and infrequent, but it can worsen.

What Triggers Sciatica?

About 90 percent of the time the condition is as a result of a spinal disc herniation that presses on one of your sacral or lumbar nerve roots. Other common causes include the following:

• Compression by the head of a baby during pregnancy, which can add severe strain on your spine
• Spondylolisthesis – The displacement or slipping of one vertebra when compared to another
• Degenerative disc disease (DDD) affecting the discs cushioning the vertebrae.
• Spinal stenosis – An abnormal narrowing of your neural foramen or spinal canal that leads to pressure on your nerve roots or spinal cord

Additional irritants: sleeping on a mattress that’s too soft, high heels, not exercising regularly or excess weight. Sciatic nerve compression may lead to insomnia, paralysis of a group of muscles or a single limb.

Diagnosis of Sciatica Is Important

A chiropractor examines you and reviews your medical history to determine the cause of your sciatica pain. Chiropractic care is typically based on the theory that restricted spinal movement results in reduced function and increased pain. Chiropractic care can aid your body to heal itself with non-surgical (non-invasive), drug-free treatment.

What Are the Sciatica Treatments That Chiropractors Use?

Interferential and Laser – These therapies help reduce pain, stiffness, swelling, cramping as well as muscle spasm and increase circulation.

Ice/Cold Therapy – It reduces inflammation plus helps control sciatic pain.

Spinal Manipulations (Spinal Adjustments) – Spinal adjustments and manipulation frees your spine’s restricted movement and helps in restoring misaligned vertebral bodies back to their proper place in your spine. The techniques of adjustments vary from a quick high-velocity thrust to the ones that combine gentle pressure and minimal force. Mastery of each of these techniques is an art that needs precision and great skill. Spinal manipulation is basically the treatment that separates chiropractic care from the other medical disciplines.

If you are looking for an Ealing chiropractor, you can visit Neuroworks Chiropractic Clinic; where all our chiropractors have expert training and a keen interest in neurology.

At Neuroworks the chiropractors have a special interest in neurology and nerve compressions and can refer for MRI scanning within days if required. We work with spinal orthopaedic and neurosurgeons and should the portion of the sciatic nerve be overly compressed and risk long term weakness in the leg a timely referral will be recommended.

Better Workplace Ergonomics for a Better Life

ergonomicsWalk into any office across the country and you will usually see at least a few people sitting in a very uncomfortable and poor ergonomic position. This is despite more awareness of workplace ergonomics. Most companies consider the prevention of numerous musculoskeletal problems as one of the most important ways of improving workplace productivity.

Are you aware that musculoskeletal problems are one of the most common reasons for workplace absences? Poor workplace ergonomics results in thousands of hours of lost workplace productivity. Back and neck pain leads to costly and time-consuming treatment for employees. However, many neck and back problems could be prevented by doing a very simple audit of the existing ergonomic position of most workers.

Here are some ways to prevent major health problems through better ergonomics.

Consider a Standing Workstation

It is unusual to walk into an office and see someone standing while typing on their computer but the health benefits of a standing workstation have been researched and proven by musculoskeletal experts. It is well known that sitting for a long time is related to many health conditions including obesity, blood pressure, diabetes and weight gain.

Here are some other ways to improve ergonomics;

  1. Consider the positioning and height of the chair in relation to the computer. Both feet should rest flat on the floor with the knees level slightly lower than the hips or perfectly in line. The chair should recline at 10°-20° degrees from an upright position. Lumbar support is required and the upper back should be considered.
  2. Sit close to a keyboard only with a central position. The keyboard position may change depending on the work being completed. Shoulders should be loose. Wrists and hands should be straight. A palm rest or adjustable keyboard can be used for a straight wrist as well. The mouse should be close to the keyboard. The mouse pad may be inclined for wrist arm and neck support.
  3. The monitor is to be in front at all times should be an arm’s length away. The top of the monitor is to be 5-8 cm above the eye level when seated. Adjustments to the monitor brightness or office lighting may also be required.
  4. The phone should be close to the body Do not put the phone between shoulder and the ear in order to type.

Remember that better ergonomics may not seem beneficial in the short term but over time the benefits of better a better sitting or standing position results in less musculoskeletal and health problems. Following a few simple steps such as considering the sitting or standing position, chair position, placement of the monitor and looking at the position of the body in relation to other office equipment will prevent many health issues in the future. A standing workstation may also be one of the best ways of preventing for neck, back, wrist and spinal problems. The result is better posture, health and an overall better life.

Stay Motivated to Work Out This Winter

winter workoutSunshine and warm weather make it easy to get out and exercise. It gets harder when the weather turns cold and dreary. If your motivation level has fallen with the temperatures, here are a few ways to bring it back up.

Be kind to yourself

Winter is a time to rest and recharge after a busy year, but you don’t want to let yourself go over the winter either. Adjust your the intensity and style of your workout and find something that rejuvenates you and brings balance. Yoga, pilates, and tai chi are all gentle exercises that will help you stay in shape without overdoing. Remember also that cold weather leaves the muscles and joints tighter than warm weather, so be sure to take some extra time for your warm up to help you avoid injury.

Work out with a friend

It’s easy to skip a workout when you’re doing it alone. It’s not so easy when you have a friend holding you accountable. Working out with a friend means supporting each other and urging each other on. And if you both have a competitive streak, consider turning working out into a friendly competition.

Be ready for any weather

If you usually head outdoors for your workout, nasty weather can make it difficult. Consider adding a few extra layers to keep you warm and dry when you’re out. Or take your workout indoors when it’s really cold by taking a class or joining a gym. You might even check out some workout videos, either online or on DVD.

Just get started

Thinking about your entire workout can be overwhelming when you just want to stay in bed a little longer or watch TV. It’s a little easier to consider working out for just five minutes. Get started and give yourself permission to stop after five minutes if you still want to. Some days you may do just that, but more often you may find that your workout seems less intimidating once you get started.

Keep it simple

The harder it is to get yourself to work out, the easier it is to find reasons not to do it. If working out means getting out of your nice, warm bed early or driving in the snow, getting to the workout may be more overwhelming than actually working out. Grab a couple of coworkers and go for a walk during lunch or climb some stairs on your break. Bonus, you’ll feel more energized for the rest of your afternoon. Make it even easier by keeping your gear close at hand. Whether that means keeping a pair of comfortable walking shoes in your office, or putting your workout clothes and shoes next to your bed so they’re in easy reach when you wake up, if you don’t have to think about it, you’ll be more likely to do it.

Warm up inside

If you really like getting outside for your workout, try warming up inside with some jumping jacks or pushups. Getting your heart rate up and your blood pumping will help you feel warmer when you get outside.

Create a challenge

This could be just a challenge for you, or you might create some competition by sharing it on social media or at your local gym. You might set a goal to run a certain number of miles or complete a certain number of workouts each week, or track your weight lifted and try to lift a little more each time.

To learn more about winter workouts, motivating yourself, and avoiding injury in cold weather, please call NeuroWorks to arrange an appointment on 020 8566 3757 now.

Preventing Back Pain

back painBack pain is something that affects millions of people all around the globe. It is an uncomfortable and annoying problem to have, affecting all aspects of your life. The back pain itself can be caused by a whole range of factors, including age, illness and injury. Sometimes back pain can last for the entire person’s life, whereas, other times, it may only last a few days or weeks.

Whatever be the case, you’re going to want to be able to prevent back pain whatever the cost. This will enable you to live a pain-free life in your later years.

See a Professional

One of the most important things we recommend you do is to see a professional about your risk of back pain. It may even be beneficial to schedule an appointment with an Ealing Chiropractor on a weekly basis. They will be able to assess and diagnose any issues you may be having that could result in back pain later down the line. They may be able to even perform some therapy to relax the muscles and relief any tension in the spine. With regular treatment and assessments, you’ll be able to prevent back pain very effectively.

Strengthen Your Back

As well receiving the required therapy from an Ealing Chiropractor, you can also help yourself by staying active. Exercising on a weekly basis can help strengthen the back and prevent any injury to it. You can receive even more benefit from yoga and Pilates classes, which will stretch the muscles and relieve any tension. However, it is important to check with your chiropractor or doctor to see which exercises are right for you, especially if you have any health-related issues.

Lifting the Right Way

One of the most common causes of back pain is from lifting a heavy object the wrong way. This is very much related to occupational hazards as well, and individuals will come into the clinic complaining that they’ve injured their back lifting something they probably needed help with. Learning how to lift objects is actually very important and is something that many people don’t take notice of. Read your company’s safety procedures and learn how to lift equipment and objects without causing too much strain on your back.

Promote Proper Posture

Throughout life, our parents are always telling us to sit up properly and sort out our posture. Who’d thought they were right all along? Correcting your posture when sitting and standing is incredibly important if you want to maintain a good back into later life. If you spend all your time slouching and hunched, your spine can become inflamed and damaged. Learn to sit properly at computers and never sit in the same place for too long. When you can, try to visit an Ealing Chiropractor on a regular basis.

Conclusion

Back pain affects so many people even though it can be easily prevented. In most cases, back pain arises either through sudden injury or through life-long habits that have slowly ruined the spin and surrounding muscles. With these simple tips, you should be able to combat back pain and stop it before it’s began. Correct your posture, lift objects correctly and remember to see a professional chiropractor at least once a week.

Three Simple Ways to Prevent a Fall

prevent fallNobody likes to fall over. We can all agree on that, can’t we? However, for some people falling over may be a common event. Falling over is not only painful but can severely damage parts of your body if you happen to fall from a height or if you’re an older individual.

As Balance Awareness Week is on the way, which aims to educate individuals about vestibular disorders, we have decided to do our bit to help anyone with a tendency to fall. We have done our research and found some of the best ways you can use to prevent yourself from falling.

Home Prevention Techniques

These are some basic ways that you can prevent falling when you’re working around the house. Falling can happen when you are performing daily activities like cleaning and cooking. You tend to forget about certain things when you’re going through your daily routine.  Here are some basic tips to prevent any falls when you’re at home.

  • Cleaning any spillages when they’re made (don’t leave them for somebody else)
  • Don’t wear socks on slippery floors (like laminate flooring)
  • Use non-slip rugs and mats
  • Take care of your feet and see a doctor if you have any foot-related problems
  • Get help when you’re performing certain tasks

There are, of course, many more ways to prevent slips in the home, but these are the most basic and actionable ones you can do, today.

Vision Tests

This is more related to individuals of an older age or with a history of sight-related problems. It is very important that you get your eyes tested on a regular basis to see if you’re not suffering from any vision impairments. You could easily slip and hurt yourself if you were unable to see a trip wire or an extension lead. If you have bad eyes you should be wearing glasses. If you feel your vision is getting worse (even with glasses) it may be safer to invest in a stronger pair.

Strength and Balance Training

If you are in need of professional help, our Ealing Chiropractors are able to use what is known as strength and balance training to perfect your balance and reduce the risk of falling. There are many different strength and balance programs you can perform and all will provide significant fall reduction. Even simple tasks like walking or dancing are excellent for perfecting your balance and have seen to provide great results.

Some people require what is known as vestibular rehabilitation to improve their balance.  We can provide these exercises for you.  You’re free to call us on 020 8566 3757 if you’re looking for professional help and are interested in what’s available.

Conclusion

Falling over hurts and can be a serious risk –  there’s no doubt about that. However, with a number of easy, simple techniques you can greatly reduce your likelihood of falling.
