The last thing you want to think about while going through cancer treatment and after cancer treatment is the possibility of losing balance, falling and getting injured such as a hip fracture or traumatic brain injury (TBI).
I can’t help it. When fall arrives (and it has struggled to get here this year), I can only think of one thing--fall prevention in seniors! A couple of weeks ago, I attended a workshop about exercise and osteoporosis. The speaker’s primary message was the importance of preventing falls, especially in seniors who may have osteopenia or osteoporosis.
