Within 12 months of fracturing a hip many people do not regain their previous level of mobility.
Decreased mobility after a hip fracture leads to muscle weakness and an increased risk of falling. This combined with poor bone health can contribute to the risk of additional fractures. Consequently, understanding both falls risk factors and bone health are vital if we aim to improve outcomes and reduce injurty after hip fracture.
