At Risk of Falling? Back And Neck Care Center Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

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 keep you strong. 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.
