At Risk of Falling? Hutter Chiropractic Office Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts no matter how old you are. Falling for older Groton folks may be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end results. Independence may be thwarted while healing. Groton fall prevention is critical, and Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages 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 family members. 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 is 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 daily. 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.
