“Eat your Broccoli & Brussels sprouts” says our Mobile Physiotherapy team

As reported by The Senior. They found that those who ate at least one serve of cruciferous vegetables – such as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage or broccoli – each day had a significantly lower risk of having a fall that required hospitalisation. So if it helps with falls and injuries then On the Road Physiotherapy and our Mobile Physiotherapy team say eat more Broccoli and Brussels sprouts! Just like mama use to say.

New research from Edith Cowan University suggests eating cruciferous vegetables can help older people being hospitalised for a fall.

The study looked at the diets of a group of older Western Australian women above the age of 70 and tracked falls over 15 years.

It found that those who ate at least one serve of cruciferous vegetables – such as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage or broccoli – each day had a significantly lower risk of having a fall that required hospitalisation.
