Osteoporosis, which literally means "porous bone" is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced.
As the bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased.
The loss of bone occurs "silently" and progressively. Often there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs.
The good news is that osteoporosis is now a largely treatable condition and, with a combination of lifestyle changes and appropriate medical treatment, many fractures can be avoided.
