What Are the Signs of Limited Mobility?

There are several signs that someone is dealing with limited mobility, including:

  • Limited grip strength
  • Slowed walking pace
  • Poor (er) posture
  • Limited range of motion
  • Poor balance

One thing you can do is take better care of your physical, mental, and emotional health long before you reach retirement age. The more you can take care of yourself, the less likely you are to suffer mobility issues later on in life.

Three Things You Can Do to Help

There is one thing you can do for yourself that can help limit your risks of mobility issues or reduce their severity.

Eat a Healthy Diet

If there is one thing the human body needs to remain healthy, it's eating a healthy diet that is full of the right proteins, vitamins, and minerals. When your diet is devoid of these it's a lot like letting your car run out of gas.

You can get lots of protein from:

  • Oats
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Peas

You can get plenty of vitamins and minerals from:

  • Red apples
  • Berries
  • Green veggies
  • Orange veggies

None of the foods above need to be cooked before they can be eaten. This makes them the perfect snack for someone with limited mobility.

For many seniors who have limited mobility, preparing and cooking meals can be very challenging. Modern appliances like the microwave, the toaster oven, and crockpot make it easy to cook foods without having to use the stove or oven.

When shopping for ready to heat-and-eat foods at your local supermarket, be sure you read the nutrition and ingredient labels. Our home care workers can help with this if the print is too small. Many of these foods are not as healthy as they claim to be.

Daily Exercise Is a Must

While you might not like the idea of stretching and exercising every day, a lack of healthy exercise can help restore flexibility, muscle and bone mass, and is an important part of our mobility care recommendations.

Exercise can also help with:

  • Limited grip strength
  • Poor balance
  • Limited range of motion
  • Slowed walking pace
  • Poor (er) posture

 Certain Medications Can Affect Your Mobility

Have your doctor go over any medications you are currently taking and see if any of them may be causing your mobility issues. You may need to have the dosage adjusted or perhaps put on a different medication. It may take a little time to make the adjustments, but you might be surprised at the results.
