Each year, more than 1/3 of Americans age 65 & older will experience a fall

One bad fall can lead to:

  • Lengthy Hospital Stay

  • Painful Rehabilitation

  • Loss of Independence, or Worse!

result in broken hips

Balance-related falls account for

more than 50%

of all accidental deaths in elderly

Falls don’t “just happen,” and people don’t fall because they get older.  Often, more than one underlying cause or risk factor is involved in a fall.

The Good News is many underlying causes of falls can be treated or corrected.
