Osteoporosis - Can I Avoid Falling?

When your bones are weak, a simple fall can cause a broken bone. This can mean a trip to the hospital and maybe surgery. It might also mean being laid up for a long time, especially in the case of a hip fracture. So, it is important to prevent falls. Some things you can do are:

  • Make sure you can see and hear well. Use your glasses or a hearing aid if needed.

  • Ask your doctor if any of the drugs you are taking can make you dizzy or unsteady on your feet.

  • Use a cane or walker if your walking is unsteady.

  • Wear rubber-soled and low-heeled shoes.

  • Make sure all the rugs and carpeting in your house are firmly attached to the floor, or donít use them.

  • Keep your rooms well lit and the floor free of clutter.

  • Use nightlights.

You can find more suggestions in the National Institute on Agingís Preventing Falls and Fractures Age Page, also available from the National Institute on Aging Information Center listed in the resource section.
