Did you know that while many falls do not cause injuries, one out of every five falls does cause a serious injury. These injuries can include a broken bone or a fracture. Also, according to the CDC, over 95 percent of hip fractures are caused by falling.

Individuals with one or more of the following conditions should consider themselves at risk for falling:
- Weakness in your lower body
- Vitamin D deficiency
