Falling hurts no matter how old you are.
Falling for older Montreal folks may
be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing.
Montreal fall prevention is critical, and
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic recommends that all Montreal
chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall
prevention strategies as well as an innovative
nutritional approach to fall prevention.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans function well
for most Montreal chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, repairing
tripping hazards, securing rugs or removing
them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a
one level home are all ways
to reduce fall risk. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath
or balance is important 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 key for these
patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can help assess health risks like these and others
to help our Montreal chiropractic patients stay
vertical! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental
to maintain your strength. As our Montreal chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are advised
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic and our Montreal chiropractic care patients discover
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A current
fall prevention idea is to include
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 decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2
or D3 alone didn’t have such an effect. It’s the combination that does it! (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees
this to be very useful when discussing nutrition
with our Montreal chiropractic patients, particularly
with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
