People fall for a lot of reasons when they get older, but that doesn't mean they should see a neurologist. A person can fall because of weakness, back or leg pain, instability, clumsiness, vision impairment, a sensory disturbance, and a myriad of other causes. Some of these are neurological, and these require special attention. In this week's Teaching through Clinical Cases episode, Dr. Sneha Mantri discusses a patient who presented to her clinic with falls due to rigidity and ocular dysmotility.
