3 Of the Most Common Injuries in the Elderly
Every year, more than one million elderly people are admitted to the emergency room for injuries, many of which are easily preventable. As senior safety is our number one concern, Prolo Vallarta has put together the following list of the most common injuries for which the elderly are at risk and how they can be avoided.
Home modifications can reduce the risk of falls among seniors, including reducing trip hazards, installing grab bars in the bathroom, adding railings to staircases, and improving lighting throughout the home. Seniors should also get regular exercise to improve balance and speak with their doctor to review any prescriptions that may cause dizziness.
Seniors can reduce their risk of fractures by getting enough vitamin D and calcium, avoiding excessive drinking and smoking, exercising to improve balance and strengthen bones, and using a walking aid.
As you can see two out of three problems are related with injuries and fractures on the elderly, there's no better option that could give you a real and effective pain-relief and prevention method than Prolotherapy, so come now with our specialist and just start enjoying life.
