The Hidden Threat of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis leads to hip fractures.
Osteoporosis means porous bone and is a bone disease that occurs when the body makes too little bone and/or loses too much bone, causing bones to weaken. This often leads to a fall and a hip fracture. Not only a “hidden” threat, osteoporosis is also a silent threat because you cannot feel, see, or hear your bones weakening. Unfortunately, the first sign you notice of osteoporosis is when you fall and break your hip. And more unfortunately, hip fractures are the most frequent type of fall-related injuries.
Plum’s® ProtectaHip® Active Lounge Pants™ are comfortable & attractive way to help prevent hip fractures.
ProtectaHip® Hip Protectors are durable and dependable and can last more than 50 times longer than other hip protectors.
