Falling hurts at any age.
Falling for older Plainville folks may
be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end
results. Independence may be thwarted while healing.
Plainville fall prevention is critical, and
Layden Chiropractic encourages all Plainville
chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall
prevention strategies as well as an innovative
nutritional approach to preventing falls.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans work
for most Plainville chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, repairing
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 is valuable for these
patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1)
Layden Chiropractic can help evaluate health risks like these and others
to help our Plainville chiropractic patients remain
upright! Physical activity and exercise are essential
to keep you strong. As our Plainville chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are recommended
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Layden Chiropractic and our Plainville chiropractic care patients uncover
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A current
fall prevention proposal is to incorporate
calcium and vitamin D together into the daily supplementation practice.
A review of 26 articles comprising over 16,500
patients revealed 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) Layden Chiropractic sees
this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition
with our Plainville chiropractic patients, especially
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
