If you have a Heart Attack or a Stroke (Brain Attack), you don’t say it was an accident. You check out your heart or blood pressure to see what is wrong that can be corrected. In this way, you decrease the risk of another heart attack or stroke.
If you have a Fracture after a fall, don’t say it was an accident. Check out your Bone Health to see what can be improved or corrected. In this way, you won’t have increased Fracture Risk the next time you fall. Anyone can fall, but not everyone fractures. A fall can be an accident, but a fracture is a Bone Attack – a warning to check your bone health.
In 7 years, I have never evaluated someone for bone health without finding at least one issue that can be improved. That included myself, when I was honest and actually evaluated my own situation.
Many otherwise healthy individuals suffer a Bone Attack. Often they can decrease their risk for a Second Fracture by simply adjusting their Calcium, Vitamin D3, Protein, Magnesium, or working on Balance, Posture, and Conditioning. All it takes is a Complete Bone Health Evaluation to identify what can be improved.
Don’t wait for that Second Fracture. Do you really believe that you can live the rest of your life without a Second Fall?
Take Control. Evaluate your bone health after a Bone Attack. Then when you fall, you should not Fracture Again.
