Reducing your risk of broken bones

Making changes to your lifestyle, taking your osteoporosis medication correctly, and making practical changes to your everyday life, can help reduce your risk of breaking a bone.

Any positive change is good. But the more changes you make, the more effective they are likely to be in reducing your risk.
