Falling can be painful and scary, cialis yet it is one of most common causes of injury in adults. Therefore, preventing falls should be a priority that you include in your health maintenance plan. If you have experienced a fall recently, or would just like to ease your worries, here are the top five ways to avoid another nasty one.
Schedule a Physical Exam
In addition to visiting the doctor to check for any injuries, you should also schedule a complete physical to make sure there was not an underlying reason for your fall. Certain medications and health conditions can cause dizziness and contribute to a loss of balance.
Wear Safe Shoes
Slippers may feel comfortable when you are walking around at home; however, those without slippery soles or little support could leave you flailing on the ground. Even at home, try to wear shoes with non-skid soles and that stay securely attached to your feet.
Clear Your Floor Plan
At home, be sure that your main walking paths are clear enough for you to walk without tripping. Move furniture out of the way and keep rugs firmly secured to the floor using special adhesive. When you are out, keep careful watch to make sure you do not trip over lawn ornaments, curbs or other potential hazards.
Install a Security System
One of the all-around best ways to get safe in your home is to install a security system that can alert authorities in the event of an emergency. This is especially important for older adults who may live in the home alone. By installing a security system, you can know that help will arrive promptly in the event of a fall while helping you to feel secure in your surroundings.
Staying physically active will help you to maintain the strength and coordination you need to recover from a potential fall. It will also help you to increase your ability to react if you see an object in your path. Walking, tai chi and yoga are all excellent for improving your flexibility and coordination, and each can be done in the comfort of your home or with a group.
Implementing a few minor changes in your routine and around your home is the best way to prevent the kinds of falls that lead to painful injuries. Avoid falling again by increasing your physical health while eliminating potential hazards. By knowing that you have secured your health and home, you can greatly reduce your worries about falling again.

Although you are not going to be the first one to admit it, you are starting to recognize how old you have become. Some people are tempted to let their health fall to the wayside when you reach a certain age, but this is not something that you want to do. These five tips will help to keep your teeth healthy.
A Special Dentist
When you are working with the professionals at Charlotte Family Dentistry, you should ask if anyone is available who specializes in working with individuals who are of your age. Not only does this allow you to get assistance that is more geared to you, but you will also probably feel more comfortable with the situation.
Keep Brushing and Flossing
You might want to stop brushing and flossing your teeth as regularly as you once did. You might have the attitude that these rules are for younger people and they do not apply to you. These thoughts simply are not true. No matter how old or young you are, you need to ensure that you are always properly maintaining your teeth. They will thank you for it!
Watch Your Foods
Another misconception you may have is that you should just eat whatever you want since you are older now. Just because you are older does not mean that you should give up on all components of basic health. You still have a lot of life to live, and eating bad foods can be negative for both your teeth and your overall health. Sure, a treat here and there is fine, but you want to work on eating foods that are better for you during most of the day.
Keep Going to The Dentist
As you age, getting to the dentist might become a burden in a multitude of ways. For example, you might be unable to drive anymore, so you need to ask someone else to take you around. Remember, you have family and friends who love you and who would be happy to help.
Don’t Hide Pain
You may also be tempted to conceal your pain. Maybe you do not want to deal with any other health issues, or you do not want others to see you as well. Whatever the situation is, remember that the dentist is there to help you and that your oral health is related to your overall health.
Keeping your teeth healthy at an old age can be a challenge, but it certainly can be done with some advice and support.

With subsidies and tax penalties tied to the Affordable Care Act due to begin in 2014, sales many people are thinking about their health insurance coverage. Some of the biggest shifts in health care are currently in effect, with escalation due next year. Four of the biggest changes are outlined below.
It is projected that health care will cost the United States around three trillion dollars in 2013. While that rate is about four percent more than in 2012, it represents the slowest rate of cost growth in many years. Actuaries have stated that the lower rate is tied more to lagging income than the Affordable Care Act. This lag has Americans being more choosy about when to see a doctor or obtain other health services, especially with some concerns over HIPAA and texting.
Increased Medicare Taxes
In addition to the 7.65 percent tax all workers pay into Medicare, with 1.45 percent going for hospitalization, those earning $200,000 ($250,000 jointly) or more in 2013 will kick in another 0.9 percent. The same income group will also be taxed 3.8 percent on money made from investments. Together, these new taxes are expected to bring in over $200 billion in the next 10 years.
Raise for Medicaid Doctors
With an expected increase of seven million enrollees in Medicaid, the government wants to ensure there will be an adequate supply of primary care doctors. This is the purpose of a provision written into Obamacare that will give doctors participating in Medicaid an average 73 percent raise. Another bright spot for providers is the secure text messaging apps that are now available that will speed up care while keeping information private.
Clear Plan Outlines
In the past, one of the most confusing aspects of health insurance was deciphering the lengthy forms and explanations of coverage. Insurance companies are now required to provide a benefits summary, explained in clear terms, that does not exceed four pages. It is similar in concept to the nutritional labels available for food. This requirement began in the fall of 2012 for plans with open enrollment at that time, with the rest catching up in 2013.
The Affordable Care Act was created to make health care available and economically feasible for as many people as possible. It is a progressive step forward that will bring benefit to all Americans.

Ankle and foot discomfort are a couple of the most common pains reported by people at all ages due to a number of factors. Maybe you’ve been working too much and your feet have been getting the short end of the stick. Maybe you’re dealing with an ingrown toenail that won’t seem to correct itself. Either way, foot pain is irritating and is best dealt with as soon as possible.
Opt for Shoe Inserts
There’s no doubt that the more cushioning you can add to the soles of your shoes, the better. Significantly overweight people and those that find themselves on their feet the majority of the time should swap out their inserts for new ones every six months or so. You won’t only notice a difference in your foot discomfort, but your entire body should also benefit.
Make an Ice Bottle
The ice bottle trick works well for those with sore feet, especially those that suffer from plantar fasciitis. Using a basic water bottle, fill it only about three quarters of the way to the top and completely freeze it. After the bottle’s contents have frozen, roll it on the floor along the bottom of your foot for immediate relief.
Use Steel Toe Boots on the Job
If you work at a job that is particularly hard on your feet, begin wearing steel toe boots. For people with labor-intensive jobs, joints in the feet are quick to wear out, and this can lead to arthritis down the line.
Wear Sandals or Open-Toed Shoes for Ingrown Toenail Relief
If the problem seems to be an ingrown toenail, wear open-toed shoes or sandals as much as possible. In between sandal use, be sure to soak the toe for 5 minutes twice a day in a solution of salt, Betadine, or Domeboro.
If none of these simple remedies do the trick for your foot or ankle discomfort, it might be time to consult a foot doctor. Foot doctors are specially trained to diagnose problems in the feet and prescribe a working solution that will bring about a timely recovery. Don’t neglect your feet if the previous remedies simply aren’t cutting it.
Overall, there are several things you can try before choosing to consult medical help. If simple remedies such as shoe inserts, a change of shoes, an ice bottle or open-toed shoes don’t help the problem, there is more than likely a more serious condition at hand. Use common sense and don’t neglect your health.
