Fall Prevention and Osteoporosis Conclusion
A person needs to know if he or she has weakened bones or osteoporosis. Using painless tests to measure bone density, the doctor can determine the risk of broken bones from a fall. Remember, osteoporosis can occur in any person at any age and falls can cause broken bones in any person at any age. Protect against falls and minimize the damage and disability that falls can cause, especially as a person gets older or if osteoporosis has already occurred. Falls are serious, but simple inexpensive steps can be taken to reduce the risk for falling and reduce the risk of breaking a bone if a fall does happen.
