The aim of this study was to investigate whether there were other risk factors for disuse osteoporosis, in addition to immobilization.
We thus investigated risk factors for localized disuse osteoporosis, other than immobilization, in patients with traumatic distal upper extremity injury.
It may be suggested that the prevention measures should be focused mainly on the patients with these risk factors in order to reduce the risk of localized disuse osteoporosis.
