Osteoporosis is a long existing disease of the bones. The fact that more people get older and an increase in sedentary lifestyle makes the disease more pronounced now and possibly in your future. Your growing years are the most important to prevent osteoporosis. From the age group
over 55 years, 20% will suffer a fracture. Osteoporosis exists in approximately 15% of men and 50% of women.
What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones, making them more susceptible to sudden and unexpected fractures. Literally meaning “porous bone,” it results in an increased loss of bone mass and strength. The disease often progresses without any symptoms or pain. Generally, it is not discovered until weakened bones cause painful fractures, mostly of the hip, wrist and spine.
Women are four times more likely to develop the disease than men. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to prevent osteoporosis from ever occurring. Treatments can also slow the rate of bone loss if osteoporosis is present.
