Recurrent Falls Linked to Foot Pain and Posture

Researchers from Hebrew Senior Life’s Institure for Aging Research have discovered that severe foot pain correlates to a higher incidence of recurrent falls. This also extends to those with flat feet.

Marian Hannan, Co-Director of the Musculoskeletal Research Center at the Institute for Aging Research and Associate Professor of Public Health, Harvard School of Public Health mentions, “Having more than one fall is a concern but many fail to see the feet as the culprit.”

Falls are a leading cause of hospitalization and often lead to other health complications. Thus, reducing foot pain experienced by older adults can significantly reduce hospitalization rates and help them to retain their independence.
