Severe foot pain and planus posture leave patients at a higher risk of falling, according to a recent study in Gerontology.
The study, focusing on 1,375 patients with a mean age of 69, found that 263 patients related one fall in the past year and 152 patients had two or more falls. Researchers note that foot pain was linked with a 62 percent greater risk of recurrent falls and patients experiencing moderate or severe foot pain had higher odds of two or more falls. In addition, the study notes that patients with planus foot posture have a 78 percent higher risk of falls while foot function had no association with falls.
