Your days are filled with routine activities you do without really thinking – like bathing, for instance. This everyday act could lead to pain, as bathrooms are one of the most dangerous rooms in a house. According to the Center for Disease Control, drowning is one of the leading causes of unintentional death and it can occur in only a few inches of water. The National Institute on Aging reports 80 percent of falls for those aged 65 and older occur in the bathroom.
The good news is there are things you can do to minimize or prevent the risk of injury while bathing and showering.
Studies show there are health benefits to taking a nice warm soak in the tub. The practice soothes sore muscles, lowers blood pressure and promotes a good night’s sleep. Please, soak safely.
