    STORY SUMMARY: One in every three Canadians over 65 are just a step away
from falling, and that slip, trip or stumble often has serious and costly
consequences. Older Canadians are nine times more likely to suffer an injury
from a fall leading to hospitalization and even death. That is why the
Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) and its provincial member associations
are launching Best Foot Forward, a public education program aimed at
preventing falls in seniors. The program follows a Public Health Agency of
Canada report detailing the debilitating and even deadly consequences of
seniors' falls.
    A fall is more likely to mean surgery, lengthy rehabilitation and
restricted activities for an older Canadian than a younger one. Canadian
chiropractors have a message for seniors - "don't let a fall get you down,"
and through the Best Foot Forward program, they are offering practical
prevention advice that most older Canadians will find easy to incorporate into
their daily routine.
