Navigating the healing process and the overwhelming and disjointed information—whether for a fracture patient, primary caregiver, care specialist or community worker—is not easy. Multiple pharmacological products exist today in addition to many other treatment options, such as diet and exercise, but aren’t integrated into treatment plans for a holistic approach that goes beyond fracture healing and fall prevention.
