At Risk of Falling? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts no matter how old you are. Falling for older Paramus folks may be much worse. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing. Paramus fall prevention is so important, and Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center encourages all Paramus chiropractic patients and their families be aware of fall prevention strategies in addition to a new nutritional approach to preventing falls.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans work for most Paramus chiropractic family members. Cleaning up 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. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is important as those may also instigate a fall, too.  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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center can help assess health risks like these and others to help our Paramus chiropractic patients remain vertical! Physical activity and exercise are essential to maintain your strength. As our Paramus chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center and our Paramus chiropractic care patients discover something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like including some nutrition: A new fall prevention notion is to incorporate calcium and vitamin D together daily. A review of 26 articles encompassing over 16,500 patients found that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone did not have such a result. It is the combination that works! (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees this to be quite useful when discussing nutrition with our Paramus chiropractic patients, especially with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
