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, 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 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.
