Osteoporosis also called as porous bone is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. This Skeletal weakness leads to fractures with minor or inapparent trauma, particularly in the thoracic and spine, wrist, and hip. It is also called degenerative disease or degenerative arthritis. Prevention and treatment involve risk factor modification, calcium and vitamin D supplements, exercises to maximize bone and muscle strength and drug therapy to maintain bone mass or stimulate new bone formation.
