Abstract

One of the major factors contributing to a deterioration in the quality of life and independence of older adults is osteoporosis and hip fracture. Recent advances in our knowledge of the causes of hip fracture are providing new and effective approaches to the prevention of this disabling condition. Because hip fracture is a leading cause of disability, significant efforts have been directed to the development of strategies for the more effective rehabilitation and treatment of the fracture patient.
