Fractures and Osteoporosis

Posted on May 18, 2018

Avoiding bone fractures is the prime aim of osteoporosis management. Fractures of the spine, hip, or wrist are the most common types in people with osteoporosis. It can be painful to experience a fracture and recover from it.

On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for those living osteoporosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fractures are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about fractures:

I've had vertebroplasty because of fractures of the vertebrae.

Found out 5 months ago that I had osteoporosis when I developed compression fractures in 3 vertebrae and a near complete spinal cord compression.

I fell last summer and fractured 2 vertebrae in back. I'm thinking of getting a new treatment.

I had numerous back fractures so started a new medication. It stopped the fracturing!

Alendronate or alendronic acid: Is it best to stop alendronic acid after 5 years to prevent femoral fracture?

Can you relate?
