Balance: Why Falls will become a Medical Epidemic 

Learning Objectives

Why Falls Happen, the Biomechanics of a Fall

Is Falling something that is inevitable for all older adults?

How can I as a fitness professional dramatically reduce someone's risk for a fall?

Brief Summary

In this presentation Dr. Dan Ritchie will discuss the impacts that Falls are having on our medical system and care-giving system.   Why Falls are the #1 cause of accidental death after the age of 65 and how we can reduce those numbers.   Why Falling is poised to be the biggest medical care cost crisis our nation has ever experienced if we don't do something dramatic about it.
