At Risk of Falling? Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts at any age. Falling for older Tonawanda folks may be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing. Tonawanda fall prevention is vital, and Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation encourages all Tonawanda chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall prevention strategies as well as a new nutritional approach to preventing falls.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans succeed for most Tonawanda chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any tripping hazards, taping down rugs or getting rid of them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a home that is all on one level with no steps are all fall preventative ways to keep safe. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is crucial as those might also cause a fall, too.  52.6% of patients with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to fall. It’s essential for these patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can help evaluate health risks like these and others to ensure our Tonawanda chiropractic patients stay on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental to maintain your strength. As our Tonawanda chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation and our Tonawanda chiropractic care patients uncover something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like adding some nutrition: A current fall prevention idea is to incorporate calcium and vitamin D together into the daily supplementation routine. A review of 26 articles encompassing over 16,500 patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone did not have such an effect. It is the combination that works! (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation finds this to be very useful when discussing nutrition with our Tonawanda chiropractic patients, especially with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
