Falling for the Algarve..... Don't Slip and Fall

How many times have you walked down one of the beautiful cobblestone streets of any of our fair cities in the Algarve and watched someone unexpectedly suddenly slip and fall? This can happen during winter when the sidewalks are wet, but can also happen during summer. The cobblestones of our walkways have been in place for many many years, becoming worn smooth.

During winter, the ground is obviously wet and slippery. Even on sunny days, we have a lot of moisture in the air, settling on the ground, continuing to make slipping and falling a possibility.

Summer is also a time for slippery cobblestones. The rain is gone, no longer washing the smooth rounded stones clean. Dust and grime accumulates, cobblestones become even more slippery. Shoes, too, become smooth and slippery. We don’t think about falling. One misplaced step…..and down we go. Twisted knee or ankle, fractured hip, sprained lower back, or worse, hitting our head suffering a concussion.

With smooth cobblestones, slipping and falling is a possibility winter or summer.

If you have a pair of shoes that don’t give you good grip on these slippery cobblestones, an easy, quick and inexpensive remedy is to take those shoes to a shoe repair person and have them affix a thin non-slip grip sole to the bottom of your shoes. Then you will feel more sure footed while walking and exercising, and hopefully avoid a damaging fall… any time of the year!

If you do fall, please check yourself carefully. If you continue to have pain, come in and see us for an evaluation.

Many Thanks, Dr. Bock
