Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoperosis is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that results in 1.5 million fractures each year. Although this disease is more common in women than in men, it can affect both sexes. In general, most fractures related to osteoporosis occur in the hip, spine, and wrist. Possible signs of the disease in the spine include back pain, hunched posture, and sloping shoulders. The most common way to diagnose this disease is using a bone mineral density test known as dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA scan). In addition to diagnosing the condition, this test can predict your likelihood of fractures and determine your rate of bone loss.
