Tips for preventing winter falls

Wow, it's icy outside! (In Michigan)

Falling on ice can be very devastating for many people, from broken hips to compression fractures in the lumbar spine. 

Do you know the best way to prevent falling on ice?

Take very small steps and strengthen your legs!

Small steps keep your feet under your body and allow your foot to maximize it's surface area, making you much more stable. The farther your foot gets in front of you the greater your risk of falling.

Also, do body weight squats on a regular basis to keep your legs strong, if you start to fall strong legs will help you get your feet under you again preventing you from falling.
