Fall Prevention 101 by Kimberly Walker, E.P.

Updated: Mar 1

Preventing falls is important for maintaining safety and well-being. Here are some tips to help prevent falls:

1. Keep your living space tidy and free of clutter. Remove any objects that may obstruct walkways or cause tripping hazards.

2. Install handrails and grab bars in areas where you may need extra support, such as in the bathroom or along staircases.

3. Ensure that your home is well-lit, especially in areas where you frequently walk. Use nightlights to illuminate hallways and bathrooms during the night.

4. Wear appropriate footwear with good traction and support. Avoid wearing shoes with slippery soles or high heels.

5. Exercise regularly to improve strength, balance, and flexibility. Activities like walking, yoga, and tai chi can help reduce the risk of falls.

6. Review your medications with your healthcare provider to identify any that may increase the risk of falls. Some medications can cause dizziness or affect balance.

7. Have your vision checked regularly and wear the correct prescription eyewear if needed.

8. Use assistive devices if necessary, such as canes or walkers, to provide stability and support while walking.

Remember, it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice! Looking for a personalized training program? Visit:
