With all of the snow and bitterly cold temperatures we have been hit with this winter, sidewalks and walkways can be extremely slippery. While avoiding falls as much as possible should be the priority, knowing how to fall properly can also help reduce your risk for injury. Keep these tips in mind as you are out and about this winter.
If you feel yourself falling, you will want to keep two important things in mind: protecting your head and spreading out the impact of the fall.
If you do fall, it is important to see a doctor. If you have fallen recently or have felt unsteady, talk to your doctor about personalized strategies to help keep your balance.
