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.
