Osteoporosis is a common condition affecting millions of people around the world. It weakens the bones making them more prone to fractures. People with osteoporosis can break their bones while just performing a casual task that they had no problem doing when they were younger. It is usually referred to as a silent disease since it doesn't show any significant sign or symptom.
Osteoporosis can occur in people of any age. People with osteoporosis are at a high risk of fractures or bone breaks, while doing routine activities such as standing or walking.
