Falling hurts at any age.
Falling for older San Jose folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may be end
results. Independence may slip away while healing.
San Jose fall prevention is vital, and McMurray Chiropractic Solutions recommends that all San Jose
chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall
prevention strategies as well as a new
nutritional approach to preventing falls.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans function well
for most San Jose chiropractic family members. Clearing
the clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any
tripping hazards, taping down rugs or removing
them, mounting grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a
home that is all on one level with no steps are all ways
to reduce fall risk. Dealing
with any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath
or balance is important as those may also instigate
a fall, also. 52.6% of patients
with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to
fall. It is essential for these
patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1) McMurray
Chiropractic Solutions can help evaluate health risks like these and others
to help our San Jose chiropractic patients remain
vertical! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental
to maintain your strength. As our San Jose chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions and our San Jose chiropractic care patients discover
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A current
fall prevention idea is to incorporate
calcium and vitamin D together daily.
A review of 26 articles involving over 16,500
patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium
supplementation significantly decreases the fall risk. Vitamin D2
or D3 alone did not have such an effect. It’s the combination that works! (2) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions finds
this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition
with our San Jose chiropractic patients, particularly
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
