At Risk of Falling? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

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.
