Have You Had a Bone Attack?

by JoAnn Pinkerton | Mar 11, 2016

We're pleased to have a guest post from Dr. Risa Kagan.

Risa Kagan, MD, FACOG, CCD, NCMP

Although the medical community doesn’t really call a broken bone a “bone attack,” you should take a broken bone just as seriously as a heart attack! When you are over 40 and break a bone from a fall that’s not a big trauma—maybe from tripping on a curb and hitting the ground—that’s not something that could happen to anyone. It means your bones aren’t as strong as they should be, and you need to see your healthcare provider about it and take steps to strengthen your bones. Learn more about these breaks that we call “fragility fractures” and what to do about them in the new NAMS video here.
