Abstract

It has been known that the risk of subsequent fracture after low-trauma fracture is high. Thus the secondary prevention of falls and fractures is crucial. After sustaining fractures, the secondary fall prevention as well as the treatment for osteoporosis is required. The main approach is to modify the fall risks identified by the comprehensive and detailed assessments. When the modification of the intrinsic risk factors is limited, it is important to modify the behaviors in activities of daily living and the home environment to prevent falls.
