Half of older adults experience fear of falling, and many respond to this concern by curtailing activity. Being inactive results in loss of muscle strength and balance, it can also compromise social interaction and increase the risk of isolation, depression and anxiety. Fear of falling can actually contribute to falling. One third of older adults fall each year. In 2005, a total of 15,802 persons aged <65 years died as a result of injuries from falls (CDC, 2008).
