What is Osteoprosis?

Osteoporosis is a medical condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle – so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over, coughing or sneezing can cause a fracture. Bone is living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone doesn’t keep up with the loss of old bone. There typically are no symptoms in the early stages of bone loss. But once your bones have been weakened by osteoporosis, you might have signs and symptoms that include back pain, loss of height over time, a stooped posture or a bone that breaks much more easily than expected.
