骨质疏松症是个无声无息的疾病，惟许多人认为骨质疏松症是老化的自然现象，未有正视其严重性。研究证明，患者发生原发性骨折（首次骨折）后，接下来的继发性骨折（第二次骨折）的机会倍增2至5倍。 病患在继发性骨折后，生活素质大受影响，行动不便，需坐轮椅或长期臥床，依赖他人照料生活起居。若连续性骨折，死亡率大为增加，对生命造成威胁。 继发性骨折协调服务（Fracture Liaison Services，简称FLS）的设立，乃为50岁以上，从站立的角度折断骨的脆性骨折病患，提供全面性医疗服务，如骨科及内科、饮食及物理治疗等，避免再度骨折。 欲知更多关于继发性骨折协调服务（Fracture Liaison Services，简称FLS），请点击这。
