Each year, osteoporosis contributes to more than 2 million bone fractures in the United States, with most of these breaks occurring in the hips, spine, and wrist. While many people consider broken bones mere nuisances, the burden of these breaks is often quite heavy. They can steal the ability to perform simple daily tasks, result in pain and deformity, and can even lead to life-threatening complications, such as pneumonia or blood clots. Thankfully, osteoporosis symptoms need not threaten the health of your bones or your quality of life. This report describes how you can prevent and treat osteoporosis through diet, exercise, and medications. You'll also find advice on choosing a calcium supplement, tips on fall-proofing your home, and help with putting together a personalized plan to preserve or boost your bone strength.
