The best way to help prevent falls is to find out what your fall risk is. Check in with your doctor and get a fall risk assessment done. From there, you can take into account what preventative lifestyle changes you may want to make in order to lessen your personal risk.
Falls happen to over 36 million Americans each year and one fifth of falls result in serious injury. After a person experiences a fall, they are at higher risk to have a repeat occurrence. While many take this risk as a sign to limit physical activity, maintaining physical strength and activity, especially after a fall occurs can help to reduce the risk of falling again.
