Nothing is more frightening than going about your day…. and experiencing a sudden fall.
And in one instant, the quality of your life can be lowered forever.
If you’re lucky, you may simply experience a few cuts and bruises.
But 1 out of 5 falls cause serious injuries, including concussions, broken bones, back trauma, sprains, fractures and even death.
Each year, more than 3 million older adults are treated in emergency rooms after falling. Falls cause more than 95 percent of hip fractures, and also the most traumatic brain injuries.
Even one fall can lead to the end of your independence, and you may be forced to give up the work and activities you love.
