Falling hurts at any age.
Falling for older Severna Park folks may
be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end
results. Independence may slip away while healing.
Severna Park fall prevention is critical, and
Back And Neck Care Center recommends that all Severna Park
chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall
prevention strategies in addition to an innovative
nutritional approach to fall prevention.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans work
for most Severna Park chiropractic family members. Clearing
the clutter, wearing shoes, repairing
tripping hazards, securing rugs or removing
them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a
home that is all on one level with no steps 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 trigger
a fall, also. 52.6% of patients
with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to
fall. It’s important for these
patients to carefully sit and not hurry. (1)
Back And Neck Care Center can help evaluate health risks like these and others
to help our Severna Park chiropractic patients stay
upright! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental
to maintain your strength. As our Severna Park chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are advised
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Back And Neck Care Center and our Severna Park chiropractic care patients uncover
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A fresh
fall prevention idea is to incorporate
calcium and vitamin D together daily.
A review of 26 articles comprising over 16,500
patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium
supplementation significantly decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2
or D3 alone didn’t have such a result. It’s the combination that does it! (2) Back And Neck Care Center finds
this to be quite helpful when talking with our
Severna Park patients about their nutrition, particularly
with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
