At Risk of Falling? Malverne Health & Wellness Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts no matter how old you are. Falling for older Malverne folks may be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end results. Independence may slip away while healing. Malverne fall prevention is critical, and Malverne Health & Wellness encourages all Malverne 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 succeed for most Malverne chiropractic families. Clearing the 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. Dealing with any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is crucial as those might 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 valuable for these patients to carefully sit and not hurry. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness can help assess health risks like these and others to help our Malverne chiropractic patients stay upright! Physical activity and exercise are essential to maintain your strength. As our Malverne chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are proposed like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Malverne Health & Wellness and our Malverne chiropractic care patients find something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like including some nutrition: A new fall prevention notion is to incorporate calcium and vitamin D together into the daily supplementation habit. A review of 26 articles involving 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 does it! (2) Malverne Health & Wellness finds this to be very helpful when talking with our Malverne patients about their nutrition, particularly with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
