Exercise can help to reduce your risk of a future fracture by helping to maintain the strength of your skeleton and by reducing your risk of a fall. Please do not begin an exercise program without first consulting a health professional.

Balance, flexibility and strength are all important in preventing falls and second fracture.   If you were to stumble or change your body position suddenly you would need to have the necessary muscle strength and sense of balance to correct your posture and prevent the fall.  Your exercise program should concentrate on these areas and make you more confident.
