Strong bones and muscles set the foundation for healthy mobility as we age.

Take early action to build and maintain strong bones and muscles. Consult with your doctor on how to protect yourself against osteoporosis and potentially disabling and life-threatening fractures.



Be proactive

Good nutrition, regular weight-bearing and muscle strengthening exercise, and avoiding negative lifestyle habits: These are all important ways to protect bone and muscle health at all ages.

Understand your risk

Recognize your personal risk factors for osteoporosis, and talk to your doctor about bone health. 

Get tested and treated if required

If you have risk factors, ask for testing. And remember, there are many effective therapies that can protect you against fracture. If medication is prescribed, make sure you adhere to treatment in consultation with your doctor.

These are the essential steps that will help you maintain strong bones and muscles, the foundation for healthy mobility and independence in the future.
