Since fractures can happen so easily in osteoporosis, you have to know what to do to limit damage to your body. Fractures in osteoporosis mostly occur in the hip, wrist, and spine, so these are the areas that you'll have to be careful not to damage. The bathroom can be a really dangerous place to slip and fall, leading to a fracture. Make sure you have a bath mat to add some traction to the tub when you stand in it, and you should also have grab bars. Your feet should be the first thing that you dry as soon as you're done in the shower or after a bath.
