Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoporisis is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
Although osteoporosis can affect any bone, it is more common for it to occur in the spine, wrist, or hips. This bone disease results when the bone in the body is lost at a faster rate that the body can replace it. As a result, it causes the bones to become fragile and more susceptible to fractures. A bone fracture can make even daily activities (such as walking) difficult without help. Possible causes of osteoporosis include age, smoking, alcohol abuse, and certain medications.
