Even the best efforts to protect your bones can’t prevent all fractures. Regardless of the bone(s) affected, recovery involves more than just healing the bones. Regaining strength and returning to daily activities is an ongoing process. Make sure to let your primary care doctor or osteoporosis specialist know you broke a bone, so they can update your osteoporosis treatment plan and refer you to a physical therapist as needed. Whether from a fall, sports or another activity, broken bones are not a normal part of aging. It’s never too late to strengthen your bones and learn what you can do to prevent future fractures and to avoid falls, the leading cause of broken bones in older adults.
