As people get older the risk of falling becomes a concern. Did you know, one in four adults over 65 sustain a fall each year? “While only 20% of these falls results in serious injury, experiencing one fall significantly increases your risk for future falls. The most common injuries sustained from a fall include hip fracture and head injury. These injuries often require hospitalization and put a major burden on the healthcare system. Thus, minimizing fall risk is important for boosting quality of life and reducing financial burden.”
Seeking spine alignment care from a chiropractor is a great way to address your health while reducing fall risk. Dr Chait has been assessing fall risks for over 34 years in the Sarasota area.
