Musculoskeletal rehabilitation and bone. Prevention of fall-related fractures in elderly

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Fall-related fracture in elderly is one of the big issues in our aging society. A major cause of fractures in elderly is fall. Therefore, the prevention of falls is essential for the prevention of fractures in elderly. Various risk factors of falls such as physical fragility, cognitive decline and visual problem have been reported. The effective way for prevention of falls is the modification of the risk factors for falls. Especially, exercise has been known effective. In addition to prevention of falls, we should explore the appropriate approach to modify fall direction, defensive reaction, local shock absorption, which are closely related to fall-related fracture risk.
