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 talking with our
West Palm Beach patients about their nutrition, especially
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
