Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and put you at risk for fractures. If left untreated or if steps are not taken to prevent, often, osteoporosis can progress painlessly until a bone break occurs. These broken bones typically occur in the spine, hip, and wrist. 1.5 million fractures annually can be attributed to Osteoporosis. Women are 80% more likely to develop osteoporosis than men. On average, about one-third of those aged 65 and older will fall and may face disability from fractures that often accompany these falls.
