Preventing and Treating Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a serious condition that can cause severe pain, disability and even death. It is responsible for 2 million broken bones every year, most commonly in the hips, wrists and spinal column.

Every year thousands of Tennesseans age 55 and older suffer a devastating fracture due to a fall. Often this is a hip fracture, but others will suffer a broken wrist, spine, shoulder or arm. Sadly, one in five people will die within a year of their broken hip, and nearly all will lose a degree of independence.

It is caused by a variety of factors:

  • Getting older
  • Gender (female)
  • Smaller body frame
  • Family history
  • Ethnicity (European or Asian)
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet lacking in calcium and vitamin D
  • Physical inactivity

Talk with your doctor about your risk of developing osteoporosis and steps you can take to prevent or delay onset of bone disease.
