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
one level home 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.
