Falling hurts no matter how old you are.
Falling for older Manahawkin folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end
results. Independence may be thwarted while healing.
Manahawkin fall prevention is vital, and
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center recommends that all Manahawkin
chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall
prevention strategies as well as a new
nutritional approach to preventing falls.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans succeed
for most Manahawkin 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
home that is all on one level with no steps are all ways
to reduce fall risk. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath
or balance is important as those may also trigger
a fall, too. 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)
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center can help assess health risks like these and others
to ensure our Manahawkin chiropractic patients remain
on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental
to maintain your strength. As our Manahawkin chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center and our Manahawkin chiropractic care patients find
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A new
fall prevention notion is to include
calcium and vitamin D together into the daily supplementation practice.
A review of 26 articles encompassing over 16,500
patients found that combined vitamin D plus calcium
supplementation significantly decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2
or D3 alone didn’t have such a result. It
is the combination that does it! (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center finds
this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition
with our Manahawkin chiropractic patients, particularly
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
