Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Falls and fall-related injuries are common in adults older than 65. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, of the fall-related deaths that occurred in 2008, 82 percent of them were in adults 65 and older.

A more alarming fact than this is that older age groups sustain more fall-related injuries than younger age groups. In other words, adults older than 85 are more likely to sustain a fall, compared with those who are 65-74 years old.
