Abstract/Notes Falls in the aged are a significant cause of injury and decreased quality of life. This paper reviews the common causes of falls and some possible interventions. A number of validated clinical measures to assess balance and risk of falling are discussed. It is further postulated that the cervical spine may affect balance and risk of falling due to its role in postural control.
