Date: October 12, 2018
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Presented by Ben Pearce, CEO Evolve Senior Living and Riverglen House
Ninety percent of the more than 352,000 hip fractures in the U.S. each year are the result of a fall. The remaining 10 percent of the hip fractures occur spontaneously due to low bone density or osteoporosis. Spontaneous fractures can then precipitate the fall. Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of injury deaths and the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma. Learn to understand and modify your risk factors for a fall and even prevent them from happening to you. Understand the two common types of hip fracture and treatment options for each with tips for a speedy recovery.
