Steps to take to prevent falls:
If you do fall talk to your doctor about it at your next checkup. Even if you didn’t get hurt, you should talk to your doctor about it. Your doctor can look in to whether your medications, a new health condition, or a change in your sight or hearing may have been the cause. They may suggest exercise, physical therapy, a walking aid, or other steps to help you prevent future falls.
