Osteoporosis causes 8.9 million fractures world wide every year and 500,000 fractures in the UK alone; sadly following a fracture most individuals are not assessed or offered optimum treatment.
Many osteoporosis patients are not screened or treated for osteoporosis. For example only 2 in 10 are scanned and few treated appropriately.
One fracure often leads to many more fractures, osteoporosis is a progressive condition.
Appropriate assessement and treatment prevents further fractures, disabilty and mortality associated with osteoporosis.
Many patients stop treatment, some 50% at six months (various reasons) and other may take some treatments for inapparopriately prolonged periods and increase risk of fractures!
It is possible to optimise bone health at any age and preventable.
