Original Air Date: March 31, 2023
Season 3, Episode 8

A fear of falling can develop after a stressful life event or a fall that has resulted in a fracture. Falling from standing height – even when falling on concrete or ice – shouldn’t result in a broken bone – but if it does – that can be an indicator of osteoporosis. On this episode, Dr. Jenna Gibbs assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education at McGill University discusses what can cause a fall, what is the standard definition of a fall, if you do fall, what you should do and more.
