Winter is yet another excellent season for us Canadians; however, it is also when the risk of falling increases due to ice patches. Although you cannot control mother nature, you can control a few things to help eliminate your risk. 

  1. Avoid icy patches if possible.
  2. Wear ice grips.
  3. Use a cane or walking sticks to help with balance
  4. Salt or sand common walking areas.
  5. Practice good walking techniques when on an icy surface.
  6. Slow down and take your time.

Lastly, you need to prepare your body for these situations by staying fit, which means working on strength, endurance, balance, and reaction time.
