At Risk of Falling? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts at any age. Falling for older Auburn folks may be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing. Auburn fall prevention is so important, and Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages all Auburn chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall prevention strategies as well as a new nutritional approach to preventing falls.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans work for most Auburn chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, repairing tripping hazards, taping down rugs or getting rid of them, installing grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a home that is all on one level with no steps are all fall preventative ways to keep safe. Dealing with any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is important as those might also instigate a fall, too.  52.6% of patients with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to fall. It’s essential for these patients to carefully sit and not hurry. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. can help evaluate health risks like these and others to ensure our Auburn chiropractic patients remain on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are basic to keep you strong. As our Auburn chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. and our Auburn chiropractic care patients find something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like adding some nutrition: A fresh fall prevention proposal is to include calcium and vitamin D together daily. A review of 26 articles involving over 16,500 patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone did not have such a result. It is the combination that works! (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition with our Auburn chiropractic patients, particularly with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
