What Is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition where there is a decrease in the mass and strength of the bone. This makes a person more vulnerable to fractures of the spine, hips and wrist.

Osteoporosis affects 20% of women over the age of 45 and 40% of women over the age of 75. Men are also affected as they grow older. Osteoporosis can be painful, disfiguring and debilitating. The spine can collapse and lead to a stooped posture and a humped back.
