Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoporose is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the bones to become thin and fragile, increasing the risk of fractures to the hip, spine, and wrists. Each year, the disease causes 1.5 million fractures. Some of the common causes of osteoporosis include age-related bone loss, smoking, alcohol abuse, and certain diseases. Possible symptoms of the disease include height loss, back pain, and hunched posture. The condition can be treated and prevented with proper nutrition, exercise, medications, and other treatment options.
