Treatment

What is it?

Osteoporosis occurs when there is an imbalance between new bone formation and old bone resorption. The body may fail to form enough new bone, or too much old bone may be reabsorbed, or both.

Causes

Osteoporosis

.Many people have no symptoms until they have a bone fracture.*Back pain, caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra, loss of height over time, a stooped posture

.Building strong bones and reaching peak bone density (maximum strength and solidness) can be the best defense against developing osteoporosis.
