Many people are unaware they have osteoporosis and are at risk of fragility fractures. 1 in 4 men and 2 in 5 women over the age of 50 experience osteoporotic fractures. It’s important to keep active, healthy and strong to be able to move around safely, while also ensuring your home is free from hazards that may place you at risk of falls.
Women are four times more likely than men to have osteoporosis, which reduces the density ad quality of bone. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. This loss of bone occurs silently and progressively: there’s often no symptoms until the first fracture occurs. When someone has osteoporosis, even a slight bump or fall can lead to a a fragility fracture.
