      Someone at my office recently fell down in the parking lot because the weather had turned colder and made the pavement slick with ice. Now she’s dealing with the fallout of a concussion. 🙁 People with Parkinson’s are at an increased risk of falling, and the winter weather won’t make that any better. Are you investing in footwear with a better grip? (If so, do you have any recommendations?) Do you reduce the amount of time you spend outdoors? How do you reduce the risk of falling throughout the year and especially in the winter?

      I have fallen once since I have been diagnosed but it wasn’t on ice.  I wrote about it here:

      Fallen

       

      After I slipped on ice (before pd diagnosis) I purchased some ice cleats that go over any shoe, something like the following;

      https://www.amazon.com/OuterStar-Traction-10-Stud-Crampons-Footwear/dp/B00S85Z1Q2/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1540944598&sr=8-7&keywords=ice+cleats+for+shoes+and+boots

       

      I highly recommend ice cleats to give traction while dealing with icy streets and walkways.
