Falls and fear of falling can be crippling for anyone. Especially those with ageing bones and other comorbidities.

There are many factors that can increase the risk of falls and balance problems, including:

Age: As people age, their balance and coordination may decline, making them more susceptible to falls.

Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, stroke, and neuropathy can affect balance and coordination and increase the risk of falls.

Medications: Certain medications, especially those that affect the central nervous system, can cause dizziness, drowsiness, and balance problems, which can increase the risk of falls.

Environmental factors: Hazards in the environment, such as uneven floors, poor lighting, and obstacles can contribute to falls.


Muscle weakness and poor flexibility: Weakness in the muscles of the lower body and poor flexibility can increase the risk of falls.

Foot problems: Foot problems such as bunions, corns, calluses, and poorly fitting shoes can cause foot pain, which can affect balance.

Poor vision: Visual impairment can increase the risk of falls, especially in poorly lit environments.

Alcohol consumption: Drinking alcohol can affect balance and coordination, increasing the risk of falls.

Lack of physical activity: Lack of physical activity can lead to muscle weakness, poor balance, and reduced flexibility, all of which can increase the risk of falls.

It is important to address these risk factors in order to prevent falls and maintain good balance and mobility.
