How to prevent injuries

 Still Going strong
Getting older doesn’t mean having to give up activities you enjoy. According to the CDC, you can prevent many common injuries by taking simple steps, so you can stay healthy and independent longer.

Here’s how to age without injury:

  1. Talk with your doctor about fall prevention, and health conditions like osteoporosis or hypotension (low blood pressure) that can increase your risk of falling. Medicare covers bone mass measurement, the best way to know if you have (or are at risk for) osteoporosis, if you meet certain conditions.
  2. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to review the medicines you take. Some medicines may make you dizzy or sleepy, which can increase your risk of injury.
  3. Stay active. Do exercises to strengthen your legs and improve your balance.
