Montreal Chiropractic Patients At Risk of Falling May Find Help from Calcium plus Vitamin D Supplementation

“Have you fallen in the last year?”

That is the most suitable opening question a healthcare person can post to a patient to ascertain fall risk. (1) From that answer, fall risk issues can be discussed and prevention hints can be communicated. Both physical issues of falls as well as nutritional issues play a role. Your Montreal chiropractor is aware of fall risk in our Montreal chiropractic patient group. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic considers the influential physical and nutritional aspects of falls to help our Montreal patients.

THE FALL RISK ISSUE

Not a surprise to you or Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, but the aging population is rising. By 2029, folks older than 65 will comprise 20% of the population, and they will be more numerous than folks under 18! Those numbers alone are astounding. But what about some of the issues that will come with an aging group of people. One is fall risk. What contributes to the risk of falls? Nutritional status is as it influences frailty and sarcopenia (muscle weakness). One approach to lowering the risk of falls is to deal with malnutrition. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows nutrition and understands Montreal fall risk.

WHO CAN DETERMINE FALL RISK?

In 2015, 31% of all U.S. family physician visits were for folks over 65 years of age. By 2030, there will be 72 million over-65-year-olds. These folks are living longer and living with all types of chronic issues and worrying about how to handle them in the healthcare system and how to pay for the healthcare they need. Sound familiar? Of course, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic and you all know someone in this situation today. It is up to the doctors who see these patients to help them manage their healthcare issues. These doctors must be educated to figure out what issues these patients are at risk of experiencing. Falls are one of the big issues facing older adults. (1) Nutritional status must be tackled in order to prevent falls, but how can a doctor tell who needs their nutritional status checked to prevent falls? Family physicians are often first line doctors for this task as they see so many patients. Your Montreal chiropractor is also great at this!

WHAT KIND OF NUTRITION HELPS?

A evaluation of published research studies involving 16,540 elderly people compared to 16,146 people in control groups discovered that supplementing with calcium plus vitamin D significantly dropped the risk of falls.
