In brief: Hurt in what way?
Brittle or weak bones increase the risk of fractures (broken bones).
If you get fractures easily that is strong evidence of osteoporosis (weak bones). But if you have injuries that do not result in fractures, that may actually be a sign that you have strong bones! the only way to find out for sure is with a bone density dxa test, which can be ordered by your doctor.
