HealthWise at Five: Fall prevention community event

Posted: Updated:

Among adults age 65 or older, falls are the leading cause of injury that leads to death. They are also the most common cause of hospital admissions for trauma.   Here's the good news…falls are a public health problem that is largely preventable.   Covenant is providing tips on preventing falls in a seminar tomorrow at the Knipling Education Center from 6:00 to 7:00pm.  Here with a preview is Bill Threadgill, a certified vestibular and physical therapist.  If you would like to take an online balance self test, visit www.balanceandmobility.com.
