May is National Osteoporosis Month - break free!
My mom tripped on an area rug a few weeks ago, causing her to fall and fracture her pelvis and hip. According to her physician, it was the “best” hip fracture to have; she only needed three rods in her hip instead of a hip replacement. In the past, she’s also had multiple compression fractures in her spine. Why so many bone breaks? Just like her mother before her, my mom suffers from osteoporosis. There are ways to help reduce your risk.
