At Risk of Falling? Wilson Family Chiropractic Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts no matter how old you are. Falling for older Millville folks may be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end results. Independence may slip away while healing. Millville fall prevention is so important, and Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages all Millville chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall prevention strategies in addition to an innovative nutritional approach to preventing falls.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans succeed for most Millville chiropractic families. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any tripping hazards, securing rugs or removing them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a one level home are all ways to reduce fall risk. Dealing with 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic can help assess health risks like these and others to help our Millville chiropractic patients remain on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental to maintain your strength. As our Millville chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are proposed like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Wilson Family Chiropractic and our Millville chiropractic care patients find something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like adding 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 found that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone didn’t have such an effect. It’s the combination that does it! (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic finds this to be quite helpful when discussing nutrition with our Millville chiropractic patients, particularly with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
