For older Americans, falls are the leading cause of injuries - especially hip and shoulder injuries.  As part of our community awareness initiatives and highlighting National Falls Prevention Awareness Day, Dr. Joshua Neubauer will discuss falls, fall prevention, and treatment options for common injuries.  Many everyday situations present risk factors for a fall - everything from daily medications to the clothes and shoes we wear can contribute to falls.  Dr. Neubauer will discuss things everyone can do to minimize their own risk and treatment of common injuries and athletic injuries seen in active adults.  Presented by Joshua Neubauer, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital.
