The main causes of femoral neck fracture are osteoporosis, injuries and falls, alcohol abuse, as well as chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes.


X-rays, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging are used to diagnose a femoral neck fracture.


Treatment of a femoral neck fracture includes surgical intervention, rehabilitation measures, physiotherapy, and drug therapy.


To prevent a femoral neck fracture, it is necessary to monitor the condition of the bone tissue, lead an active lifestyle, consume calcium-rich foods, and avoid traumatic situations.
