Managing your balance becomes increasingly important, especially as we age. This quote from the National Council on Aging, One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall. Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
That makes it a very big problem! Falls lead to injury. And, even if there is no major injury, it impacts your confidence and your willingness to be active. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to prevent falls and keep your life under your control!
