Abstract

The treatment of the most common osteoporotic fractures has been reviewed. In general, early functional treatment is used to allow early restoration of function and weight bearing. Fracture treatment should always be accompanied by an investigation of the bone mass in these patients. Nutritional support and calcium and vitamin supplementation should be provided during the healing phase.
