Although most serious falls happen when people are older, steps to prevent and treat bone loss and falls can never begin too early. Many people begin adulthood with less than optimal bone mass, so the fact that bone mass or density is lost slowly over time puts them at increased risk for fractures.


Bones that once were strong become so fragile and thin that they break easily. Activities that once were done without a second thought are now avoided for fear that they will lead to another fracture.


Steps to Prevent Fragile Bones

  2. Exercise several times a week.
  3. Ask your doctor about a bone mineral density test.
  4. Ask about medications to slow bone loss and reduce fracture risk.
