In my second clipless fall the other day I gently fell on my hip. I have bruises on both shins but my hip is fine. As I contemplated that on the remainder of the ride, I began wondering if I ought to schedule an appointment for a bone density test. My mom has osteoporosis, and she has had broken bones from just simple falls. I've never broken a bone but heredity is a risk factor.
Has anyone else considered this? We've discussed knees, hips, backs, hearts, colons, eyes, and other 50+ parts, but I don't recall seeing the topic of getting our bones checked. It would be nice to know that my hips or other parts won't shatter into a million pieces if (when) I fall off the bike (again).
