Signs and Symptoms:

The first sign of osteoporosis is usually a fracture that may occur without a fall or trauma to the fracture site. Wrist fractures are very common in the presence of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis may also cause generalized aches, pains and discomfort when sitting or standing, loss of height, often associated with curvature of the spine or Dowager’s Hump, and unexplained tooth loss and loosening of dentures.

What You Can Do:

The foundation for healthy bone begins early and continues throughout life. You can improve your bone health by adhering to the following keys to prevent and treat osteoporosis:

  • Increase Your Calcium Intake
  • Consider Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Avoid Heavy Alcohol Use
  • Stop or Limit Smoking
  • Exercise

The Key to Prevention:

Of the things you can do to improve your bone health, exercise is one of the most powerful. A program of regular exercise that provides a training stimulus with forces greater than those provided by routine activity will result in healthy bone, improved muscular strength and power, better balance, postural stability, and improved ability to recover from instability.
