The Senior Hour – March 6, 2013

Dr. Gene Dorio and Barbara Cochran started the show with a caution or a reminder to all the seniors. Remember it is time for Daylight Savings Time and you will all lose an hour of sleep. Adjust your clocks accordingly as you may end up being early for some meetings. Also seniors will need to be careful adjusting their hard to reach clocks. Ask for help if you need to because we don’t want to worry about having a nasty fall.

Today’s guest on the Senior Hour was Jessica Ekengren of Ekengren Chiropractic. Dr. Ekengren started to work in a few offices to get experience and in 2000 started her own practice in Canyon Country. Dr. Ekengren came on to today’s show to talk about Neuropathy.

Neuropathy is the loss of sensation from the knees down which is very common in seniors. Numbness is very bothersome and can cause individuals to become unbalanced which obviously can lead to unwanted falls. Another concern is if you have numbness on your feet and you get a cut or step on a tac and individuals will not notice. This could lead to an infection, hospitalization or even in severe cases amputation.

Dr. Ekengren tells everyone that diet is a big part of living a healthy lifestyle. Be careful what you put in your body because diseases, like Neuropathy, can flare up if you eat things that are not good for you.
