Number One Cause of Injury to Elderly

I really need to count my blessings when it comes to Mother and how many times she has fallen. She is not to be up moving around unless there is someone with her. She recently declared the physical therapist said she was not considered a “fall risk” anymore (She fell last evening).

A Balancing Act

by Deah on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 10:30 AM

The vestibular system is a complex structure of the inner ear that is critically important for controlling balance while standing and walking.
