Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis, meaning "porous bone" in Greek, is a skeletal condition characterised by weakening and thinning of bones, making them more susceptible to fractures. This can occur throughout the entire skeleton, but the bones in the hips, spine, and wrists are most commonly affected. Often dubbed the "silent thief" as symptoms may not appear until a fracture occurs, osteoporosis can significantly impact mobility and independence, particularly for older adults.

While there is no cure, various osteoporosis treatment options are available to slow bone loss, increase bone density, and reduce fracture risk. Early diagnosis and intervention are crucial for managing osteoporosis and maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
