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

“Have you fallen in the last year?”

That’s the best opening question a doctor can post to a patient to determine fall risk. (1) From that answer, fall risk issues can be discussed and prevention tips can be communicated. Both physical issues of falls as well as nutritional issues play a role. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is aware of fall risk in our Murfreesboro chiropractic patient group. Most Chiropractic Clinic considers the influential physical and nutritional aspects of falls to help our Murfreesboro patients.

THE FALL RISK ISSUE

Not a surprise to you or Most 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 statistics alone are amazing. But what about some of the issues that will come with this aging population. One is fall risk. What contributes to the risk of falls? Nutritional status is since it influences frailty and sarcopenia (muscle weakness). One approach to reducing the risk of falls is to take care of malnutrition. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic knows nutrition and understands Murfreesboro fall risk.

WHO CAN DETERMINE FALL RISK?

In 2015, 31% of all U.S. family physician appointments were for folks over 65 years of age. By 2030, there will be 72 million over-65-year-olds. These adults are living longer and living with all sorts of chronic issues and worrying about how to manage them in the healthcare system and how to fund the healthcare they require. Sound familiar? Of course, Most Chiropractic Clinic and you all know someone in this situation today. It’s up to the doctors who take care of these patients to assist them in managing their healthcare issues. These doctors must be educated to identify what issues these patients are at risk of experiencing. Falls are one of the big issues challenging 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 job as they see so many patients. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is also great at this!
