Don’t Risk Falling

October 18, 2022

It is a startling fact that every year, 1 out of 4 individuals aged 65 and over experience a fall. Falls are the leading cause of injury among older adults, leading to a staggering 2.8 million emergency hospital visits annually.

The Risks of Falling

In the United States alone, over 3 million people seek emergency room treatment each year due to falls. Shockingly, 1 out of 5 seniors who fall suffer serious injuries. Conditions such as osteoporosis, which weakens bones and increases susceptibility to fractures, can further exacerbate the severity of these injuries.

Once a hip is fractured, less than half of the patients ever regain their mobility to the extent it was before the fracture.

It is important to note that recovering from a fractured hip is a challenging process, with less than half of patients regaining their previous level of mobility. Falls also rank as the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in seniors. Even less severe injuries have significant consequences. With at least 300,000 people treated annually for hip fractures, the recovery period can be lengthy, and some individuals may even lose their independence, requiring additional assistance for daily living. Additionally, a fractured hip often leads to further injuries and, in some cases, even death.
