At Risk of Falling? Innate Wisdom Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts no matter how old you are. Falling for older New York City folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end results. Independence may slip away while healing. New York City fall prevention is critical, and Innate Wisdom recommends that all New York City chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall prevention strategies in addition to a new nutritional approach to fall prevention.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans succeed for most New York City chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any tripping hazards, securing rugs or removing them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a one level home 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 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 is key for these patients to carefully sit and not hurry. (1) Innate Wisdom can help assess health risks like these and others to ensure our New York City chiropractic patients remain on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are basic to maintain your strength. As our New York City chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Innate Wisdom and our New York City chiropractic care patients uncover something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like adding some nutrition: A fresh fall prevention idea is to include calcium and vitamin D together daily. 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’s the combination that works! (2) Innate Wisdom sees this to be quite helpful when talking with our New York City patients about their nutrition, especially with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
