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.
