Senior falls are always scary, but even moreso when they have serious medical ramifications. The Centers for Disease Control
estimates that one in five senior falls can lead to broken hips, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injury. Of the nearly 800,000 seniors who are hospitalized from fall-related injuries each year, 300,000 of them are treated for hip fractures. Even more shocking? They have found that 95 percent of hip fractures are caused by falling.
