Falling hurts no matter how old you are.
Falling for older Plymouth folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may slip away while healing.
Plymouth fall prevention is vital, and
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages all Plymouth
chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall
prevention strategies as well as an innovative
nutritional approach to preventing falls.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans work
for most Plymouth chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any
tripping hazards, taping down rugs or getting rid of
them, installing grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a
one level home 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 may also instigate
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)
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology can help assess health risks like these and others
to help our Plymouth chiropractic patients remain
vertical! Physical activity and exercise are basic
to maintain your strength. As our Plymouth chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are advised
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology and our Plymouth chiropractic care patients find
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A fresh
fall prevention idea is to incorporate
calcium and vitamin D together into the daily supplementation practice.
A review of 26 articles encompassing over 16,500
patients found that combined vitamin D plus calcium
supplementation significantly decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2
or D3 alone didn’t have such an effect. It’s the combination that does it! (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology finds
this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition
with our Plymouth chiropractic patients, particularly
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
