At Risk of Falling? Aaron Chiropractic Clinic Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts no matter how old you are. Falling for older Fort Wayne folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may slip away while healing. Fort Wayne fall prevention is critical, and Aaron Chiropractic Clinic encourages all Fort Wayne chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall prevention strategies in addition to a new nutritional approach to preventing falls.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans work for most Fort Wayne chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, repairing tripping hazards, taping down rugs or getting rid of them, mounting 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 important as those might also trigger a fall, too.  52.6% of patients with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to fall. It’s valuable for these patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can help assess health risks like these and others to help our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients stay vertical! Physical activity and exercise are essential to maintain your strength. As our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are proposed like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and our Fort Wayne chiropractic care patients find something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like adding some nutrition: A current fall prevention proposal is to incorporate calcium and vitamin D together daily. A review of 26 articles encompassing over 16,500 patients found that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone didn’t have such a result. It is the combination that works! (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees this to be quite helpful when talking with our Fort Wayne patients about their nutrition, especially with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
