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 into the daily supplementation practice.
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 talking with our
Millville patients about their nutrition, particularly
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
