Osteoporosis is a progressive disease that results in a reduction of bone quality and density. Bones become weaker and more fragile, which creates an increased risk of fractures. Millions of Americans are living with osteoporosis, but it is most common in older women. In individuals who suffer from osteoporosis, bone loss happens at a faster rate than new bone growth. Often, there are no symptoms until a broken bone actually occurs. However, if you’re living with this condition, you may notice some issues with back pain and problems with your posture. Fortunately, osteoporosis can be treated with lifestyle changes, medications and other medical treatment. This can help prevent further bone loss and broken bones that may result from this health issue.
