The National Safety Council reports that 8.9 million emergency room visits per year are from falls. Falls can be serious and life threatening, especially for the sick or elderly. A fall can cause them to spiral downward quickly with additional health problems. Being proactive and aware of falling can help, although it is much more than that. Balance is complicated to work with and may be more of a process of elimination, as expert guest Michael Bearce discusses. With hospitals seeing revenue declines in Medicare, it is in everyone’s best interest that falls be reduced. Bob Kunio may have the answer with his Simply Rehab program. Muscle mass declines rapidly with aging and Simply Rehab has a way to build and keep muscle. This may be the key to never taking a tumble, while also building strong bones.
