Abstract

ROGERS, M. W., and M.-L. MILLE. Lateral stability and falls in older people. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 31, No. 4, pp. 182–187, 2003. Aging changes in specific neuromusculoskeletal factors affecting protective stepping and other balance functions may precipitate lateral instability and falls. Identification of these factors provides directives for novel therapeutic interventions to reduce fall risk in older people.
