In brief: Diet and exercise

The best way to prevent fractures of any kind is to maintain your bone health and your general health.
Maintain good levels of calcium and vitamin d (take supplements if necessary) and perform weight bearing exercises (such as walking and using weights). Increase your overall activity and exercise regularly. Balance exercises will help to prevent falls.
