Osteoporosis: Wheelchair Requirements

Osteoporosis Requires Wheelchair

Osteoporosis-requires-wheelchairA disease that causes bones to become weak and fragile, so much so that an accident such as a fall or even mild movement such as bending over, can cause the bones to fracture. To prevent bone loss while suffering from osteoporosis, a healthy diet and specific exercises are recommended.

Some individuals may need to use a wheelchair if their osteoporosis is severe enough. Using a wheelchair can help avoid falls or accidents based on weak bone structure.
