Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoparosis is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
People who have osteoporosis may have hunched posture, a protruding abdomen, and back pain. This bone disease occurs when bone is lost faster than the body can replace it. This causes the bones to become brittle and more susceptible to fractures. Most fractures associated with the condition occur in the hip, spine, and wrist (although osteoporosis can affect any bone in the body). Common causes of this condition include age, alcohol abuse, smoking, and certain medications.
