At Risk of Falling? Layden Chiropractic Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

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 vital, 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 removing 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 daily. 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.
