As we age our risk for falling increases, something we don’t want to think or talk about. There are many different reasons why people fall, however the risk factors for falling increases as we age. From reduced muscle strength, reduced joint range of motion, still muscles, bone and/or joint problems, loss of sensation (peripheral neuropathy in the feet due to diabetes or chemo therapy), reduced vision, changes in the inner ear (vestibular), and then there are environmental hazards that can cause a fall to happen and taking certain types of medication.
