Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing to an increased risk of fragility fractures that could induce long-term morbidity, functional limitation, decreased quality of life, and increase mortality. The most frequent sites of fragility fractures are the vertebrae, hip, wrist, proximal humerus, and ankle. In several cases, a surgical approach with subsequent rehabilitative treatment is required. The main aims of rehabilitation are restoring pre-fracture functioning and improving patients’ activities, participation level, and quality of life.
