Falling hurts at any age.
Falling for older West Palm Beach folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end
results. Independence may be thwarted while healing.
West Palm Beach fall prevention is so important, and
Chiropractic Care recommends that all West Palm Beach
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 West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic patients remain
on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are essential
to keep you strong. As our West Palm Beach chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are proposed
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Chiropractic Care and our West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic patients, particularly
with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
