Osteoporosis is a disease that makes the bones weak and prone to fracture. The most common fractures occur at the spine, wrist and hip. Spine and hip fractures in particular may lead to chronic pain, long-term disability and even death.
Most people begin to gradually lose bone strength by their mid-30s. As the balance between bone resorption and bone formation shifts, more bone is lost than can be replaced. Overtime, bones become thinner and structurally weaker.
