Aching Back May Lead to Falls

24 Apr

Be careful when walking if you have back pain: it hiked the risk of falling by 36 percent in a study of 5,568 men age 65 and older.

And earlier research suggests that women with back pain may be at even greater risk of falls. Backaches may distract people from looking at where they are going or may lead to posture changes that raise the odds of a tumble.
