At Risk of Falling? Moses Chiropractic Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts at any age. Falling for older West Palm Beach folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end results. Independence may slip away while healing. West Palm Beach fall prevention is critical, and Moses Chiropractic encourages all West Palm Beach chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall prevention strategies in addition to a new nutritional approach to preventing falls.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans work for most West Palm Beach chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any tripping hazards, securing rugs or getting rid of them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a one level home are all fall preventative ways to keep safe. Dealing with any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is crucial as those may also cause a fall, also.  52.6% of patients with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to fall. It is valuable for these patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1) Moses Chiropractic can help evaluate health risks like these and others to ensure our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients stay on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental to keep you strong. As our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Moses Chiropractic and our West Palm Beach chiropractic care patients discover something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like including some nutrition: A new 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 revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone did not have such a result. It’s the combination that works! (2) Moses Chiropractic sees this to be very helpful when discussing nutrition with our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients, especially with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
