N2 - A body of evidence points towards a close connection between susceptibility to fractures and osteoporosis. The incidence of osteoporotic fractures, both in absolute figures and in age-specific figures, has increased worldwide throughout this century. Although some reports show that the age-specific incidence is levelling-off, there will be a continuously increasing number of individuals with such fractures that will have implications from an economical point of view not only for the affected individual but for society as a whole. The outcome after such fractures, especially those of the hip, is by no means always favourable, partly due to insufficient results after orthopaedic treatment and partly due to an already high comorbidity. Therefore, trying to prevent osteoporotic fractures by non-pharmacological or pharmacological regimens is of utmost importance.
