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.
