Strength train to prevent bone breakage

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention found that about 36 million older adults fall each year – resulting in more than 32,000 deaths. In some cases, falls are inevitable, but there are things that can be done to prevent falls. The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has compiled information on fall prevention for older adults here: https://www.nia.nih.gov/health/topics/falls-and-falls-prevention. One tip from the NIA is to stay physically active. Another great resource is DHS https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/injury-prevention/falls/index.htm.

 

Strengthen your muscles and bones through the Kewauneee County Extension’s StrongBodies 12-week program. This program teaches techniques to get up off the floor, reinforcing balance, and how to eat for healthy bones.
