For women, a minor fracture could be a major warning.

Don’t overlook the potential meaning of a “minor” fracture. For middle-aged women, it could be a symptom of bone loss caused by the onset of osteoporosis – a condition that affects one out of two women by age fifty. Osteoporosis can be treated – and in some cases, bone loss can even be reversed. For the latest on fractures and osteoporosis, visit orthoinfo.org and nof.org.
