Special Health Reports
Dear Reader, Balance is a complex phenomenon, involving the eyes, ears, muscles, tendons, bones, and brain. Itís something you may take for granted Ö until you suffer a fall. When a toddler tumbles, he or she may shed a few tears before surging ahead again unscathed. But when an adult falls, particularly an older adult, consequences are often far worse, potentially leading to a hip fracture, head injury, or even death.
