Going out New Year’s Eve? This time of the year seems to increase injuries waiting to happen. Frequent nasty falls are usually caused by alcohol, high heels and rushing. Even minor falls can result in broken bones. It is extremely important for the patient to take special care. Don’t rush, concentrate and take the necessary time necessary to complete your task. If you’re feeling tired or maybe a bit light headed, sit down and rest straight away.
Bones weakened from metastatic cancer can break or fracture. Even minor falls can result in broken bones. It is extremely important for the patient to take special care.
