Knowing how to move safely avoids unnecessary risks for falls and fractures. That can improve your life. Avoid unnecessary risks.
NOF publication https://www.nof.org/wp-content/uploads/Safe-Movement-Brochure-COMBINED.pdf details proper bending, lifting, etc.
This brochure also tells how FRAX, VFA, TBS all improve the predictive power of DXA and BMD alone about who is at risk for fracture. It also visually shows the 50% risk of fracture without antiresorptive treatment compared to the 0.017% risk of unusual fractures of jaw or femur with treatment.
