With advancing age, individuals experience a decline in reaction ability and lower limb strength, which, when combined with the presence of osteoporosis, increases the risk of fractures in daily life if proper attention is not given. The most prevalent site of fracture in the elderly population occurs between the femoral neck and trochanter, followed by lumbar vertebral compression fractures and ankle facet fractures. Osteoporosis and age-related decline in bone and joint regulatory capacity are the primary factors influencing fracture occurrence among older individuals. Implementing scientifically-based treatments can alleviate pain in the elderly population, thereby establishing a solid foundation for effective medical interventions.
