Abstract

Osteoporosis increases with age and people aged over 70 years are at high risk of nonvertebral and hip fractures. Management should be multifactorial and needs to consider the triad of osteoporosis, falls risk and the impact of a fall in older people. Pharmacological treatment can aid with increasing bone density, but adherence is key.
