It is well recognised that people who suffer an osteoporotic fracture (minimal trauma fracture) are then at a greatly increased risk of getting further fractures. These patients often present at an hospital emergency room and are treated with surgery or a splint. When the fracture has been set, they are then often just allowed home. The possibility of osteoporosis is not thought of or investigated for, and therefore, not treated.
At BJC Health, our physiotherapists & exercise therapists are trained to assess gait stability and falls risk. After an initial assessment, they will then design a program to reduce this falls risk by improving your balance, mechanics of walking, increasing lower limb strength and the use of walking aids when appropriate.
