Osteoporosis is a disease of progressive bone loss associated with an increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis causes loss of height and rounded upper back.

Osteoporosis is a major health problem, contributing to 2 million fractures per year. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, the number of fractures due to osteoporosis may rise to over 3 million by the year 2025.

One in two women and one in four men above 50 years will sustain osteoporotic spine fracture. Many of these have painful fractures of the hip, spine, wrist, arm, and leg, which often occur as a result of a fall. Even simple household tasks can result in fracture of the spine if the bones have been weakened by osteoporosis.
