If you are over 50 and have had a fracture as a result of a minor fall or bump then you may be at risk for further fractures. In order to prevent a second fracture there are several positive steps that you can take:
It is worth considering if you have osteoporosis or have other predisposing factors for fracture.
Just like many of your other organs, your skeleton is constantly turning over and repairing minor defects.
Exercise can help to reduce your risk of a future fracture by helping to maintain the strength of your skeleton
Good vision prevents falls. Have an eye test if you find yourself stumbling or falling because you can’t see clearly.
