Falls Prevention Awareness Day is on September 22nd.
Falls are the leading cause of injury-related emergency department visits and the day is used to address this public health issue. Falls can be more dangerous than they might seem. They can cause bruising, hip fractures, and head injuries, and these accidents have the potential to be fatal, especially for the elderly which means that they deserve extra attention to make sure they’re protected.
This is a great time to start gym or yoga classes to learn or regain your balance skills.
Our thanks go out to Infinity Fitness for sponsoring this day!
