With what has been happening with our weather lately we thought it was a good idea to revisit what we can do to prevent falls whether it is because of the weather or not.
Did you know that one in every three Canadians over age 65 will fall at least once in a year? Falls often have serious consequences such as hip, wrist and pelvic fractures that can have a lasting impact on your quality of life. Best Foot Forward is a public education program developed by the Canadian Chiropractic Association to address the issue of debilitating falls among older Canadians. Canada’s chiropractors are committed to reducing injury and disability from falls. A Doctor of Chiropractic can test your strength, steadiness and balance – and give you advice on exercise, nutrition and falls prevention.
