At Risk of Falling? Chiropractic Care Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts at any age. Falling for older Chicago folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end results. Independence may be thwarted while healing. Chicago fall prevention is vital, and Chiropractic Care recommends that all Chicago chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall prevention strategies as well as an innovative nutritional approach to fall prevention.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans succeed for most Chicago chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any tripping hazards, securing rugs or getting rid of them, installing 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. Dealing with any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is important as those may also trigger a fall, also.  52.6% of patients with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to fall. It is essential for these patients to carefully sit and not hurry. (1) Chiropractic Care can help evaluate health risks like these and others to ensure our Chicago chiropractic patients remain on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are essential to keep you strong. As our Chicago chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are proposed like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Chiropractic Care and our Chicago chiropractic care patients discover something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like including some nutrition: A current fall prevention notion is to include calcium and vitamin D together daily. A review of 26 articles involving over 16,500 patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone didn’t have such an effect. It is the combination that does it! (2) Chiropractic Care sees this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition with our Chicago chiropractic patients, particularly with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
