For many older Americans it is a huge concern, especially older Americans that maintain their independence and live alone or with another older person. It is the fear of falling. If you have older family members you know how dangerous a simple slip or fall can be. Did you know that these falls might not be an accident? The fact is that many of these falls are actually the result of a disease. It’s a disease that could become epidemic in an ever growing aging population, a disease that you might have yourself. Quite often the symptoms are looked upon as normal signs of aging, but they are not. The consequences could be life threatening and as of now there is no immediate cure or therapy that can prevent the progression of this disease.
