Osteoarthritis patients present a high risk of falls due to ill balance and muscle weakness caused by the disease.
How do you cope with this risk? Does your doctor provide you with any advice on how to prevent falls?

Thank you. I have Osteoporosis in both my Hips and my GP has prescribed, Adcal-D3 Vitamin "D" Capsules 750 mg, to take 2, twice a day. Also " a Weekly Tablet named, Alendronic Acid 70mg. I have had Osteoporosis for a number of years, but now it's just getting worse, pain wise. My GP told me that after seeing my latest EX Ray results. "If I fall, my left Hip will SNAP" I am 76 yrs of age & Female.
