Falling hurts no matter how old you are.
Falling for older Groton folks may
be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing.
Groton fall prevention is critical, and
Hutter Chiropractic Office recommends that all Groton
chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall
prevention strategies as well as an innovative
nutritional approach to fall prevention.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans work
for most Groton chiropractic families. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any
tripping hazards, taping down rugs or removing
them, installing grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a
one level home are all fall preventative ways to keep safe. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath
or balance is crucial as those may also cause
a fall, also. 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 take more time to sit and not hurry. (1)
Hutter Chiropractic Office can help assess health risks like these and others
to help our Groton chiropractic patients stay
on their feet! Physical activity and exercise are essential
to maintain your strength. As our Groton chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are advised
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Hutter Chiropractic Office and our Groton chiropractic care patients uncover
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like adding some nutrition: A fresh
fall prevention proposal is to incorporate
calcium and vitamin D together into the daily supplementation routine.
A review of 26 articles comprising over 16,500
patients found 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) Hutter Chiropractic Office sees
this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition
with our Groton chiropractic patients, particularly
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
