IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK)- With all slick roads and walkways in town it's easy to find yourself slipping and sliding around.
Many of those falls land you in the emergency room with bruises or worse broken bones.
Dr. Derek Campbell of Community Care says the visits for these types of injuries go up this time of year. He sees everything from mild to severe injuries. The elderly are the most as risk and suffer the worst with these types of falls.
When going out be sure to wear weather appropriate shoes, take it slow, and use extra caution when walking outside.
