Keep your bones strong to prevent avoidable fractures

A small amount of bone loss happens naturally as you age. But if you experience a fragility fracture – breaking a bone when you fall from a short distance, such as standing height – it could mean that your bones are becoming too weak.

Low bone density, also known as osteoporosis, is the most common cause of these preventable bone fractures. Osteoporosis occurs when your bone tissue grows back too slowly to replace the tissue that is being lost.

We want to help you avoid future fragility fractures. You can get advice on how to slow bone loss and build back bone strength through an evaluation with our orthopedic fragility fracture specialists. From there, we can help you learn about a range of treatments that can help you restore and maintain healthy bone tissue.
