Health experts widely agree that improving balance and preventing falls are closely related. It is important to recognize that this serious health topic is dependent on several contributing factors. When these factors are not addressed, falls for seniors can be a problem with catastrophic consequences.
FACT: About 1/3 of people over the age of 65 fall each year
FACT: A significant percentage of them suffer serious injuries
FACT: Many of those who are injured DIE as a result of the injuries!
So, addressing the factors that help prevent falls is critical. Among them are-
- Physical conditioning
- Vertigo(neurologic, nutritional or musculoskeletal)
- Vision problems
- Joint or spinal problems
- Medication management
- Home environment safety management
