Awakening call for fall prevention

According to Orthopaedic researchers, it is important that older people escape falls, because fracture treatment may be slow and complex. As people age, they are more likely to have a fall because// of decreased agility and an overall decline in general health. And since an older person's bones are often thinner, treatment is difficult and healing slow.

American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons think that it is important to do all you can to avoid a fall. A balanced diet with at least 1500 milligrams a day of calcium and 300 International Units of vitamin D will keep bones strong. Women may wish to opt for hormone replacement after the menopause to stop bone loss, or an alternative drug if they don't want to take hormones.

As far as fall prevention is concerned, common sense around the home goes a long way - no slippery rugs or high heels, and consider installing safety grab bars in the bath. It is also important not to let yourself become housebound . If you feel vulnerable, enlist the help of a physical therapist to teach 'safe walking' and to assist in the selection of walking aids. Older adults are more likely to need joint replacement after a fracture than younger people. And surgery on a broken bone might even require the insertion of plates or screws. The best way to avoid all these complications is to do your utmost to prevent a fall from occurring.
