According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of three adults who are age 65 or older will fall each year. Even more startling, less than 50 percent of those who have fallen will talk to their physician about it.
Falls are the leading cause of injury in older adults, according to the CDC, with the most common injuries being wrist fractures, hip fractures, pelvis fractures and spine injuries.
