What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when your bones cannot absorb and replace the bone tissue leading to a decrease in their density. Normally, bones contain collagen, calcium, and protein, which makes them strong.

Bones affected by osteoporosis fracture easily. Your hips, wrists, spine, and ribs are the most susceptible to fractures and injuries caused by the bone disease. Even though people with osteoporosis have a higher risk of fractures, more cases of fracture occur in those with osteopenia.
