Living With Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a common bone disease that affects 53 million people in the United States. It affects the bones and causes them to become weakened to the point that a fall, a cough, or a simple body movement can cause them to break and take months to heal.

The inside of our bones resembles a honeycomb with tiny spaces. Osteoporosis increases the size of these holes between our bones, and this causes our bones to lose strength.
