Men's Bone Health

 
Alarming new data published by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), shows that one-third of all hip fractures worldwide occur in men, with mortality rates as high as 37% in the first year following fracture. This makes men twice as likely as women to die after a hip fracture. Osteoporosis experts warn that as men often remain undiagnosed and untreated, millions are left vulnerable to early death and disability, irrespective of fracture type.
 
The report entitled 'Osteoporosis in men: why change needs to happen' was released ahead of World Osteoporosis Day and highlights that the ability of men to live independent pain-free lives into old age is being seriously compromised. Osteopaths are well placed to spot the risk factors for osteoporosis, which include lifestyle and medical factors that osteopaths should routinely screen for.
