Decrease Your Risk of Fracture

While the most common fractures associated with osteoporosis are those of the hip, spine and wrist, not everyone diagnosed with this disease breaks bones.

Whether or not you have had a fracture, everyone with osteoporosis should attempt to modify their lifestyle in order to minimize their risk of breaking a bone. In addition to drug therapy, exercise and calcium, it is very important to understand how to move in a way that is safe for your bones. The practical advice that follows is designed to help you understand what are considered safe movements and to pay attention to the details of daily living so that you don’t compromise your bones.
