At Risk of Falling? Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

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 is the combination that does it! (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees this to be very useful when talking with our Montreal patients about their nutrition, particularly with those who tend to be at higher risk for falls.
