The following are the preliminary results of the falls survey:
"As you can see; falls and fractures as a complication of falls is a big problem in MS. If you have not completed this survey please do. We need over 250 responses to make the statistical analysis robust."
"If you are falling ask your MS nurse, neurologist or general practitioner for advise and have your bone density checked. To do this you need to have a DEXA scan. MSers have a higher chance of having osteopaenia or thin bones, which is a risk factor for fractures."
