Fracture Risk Assessment

 

The charity can provide a fracture risk assessment using the online FRACTURE RISK ASSESSMENT calculation tool (FRAX). This involves the completion of a simple questionnaire. The data is then entered into an online system which calculates your risk of fracture.

 

A Report will include your results and general recommendations that you can then discuss with your GP or practice nurse.

Following the Fracture Risk Assessment, clients are given the opportunity to find out how they can best look after their bones.

A healthy lifestyle which includes a calcium diet rich and regular exercise is discussed. Information leaflets will also be available for clients to take home.
