Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Ostoporosis is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
As a type of bone disease, osteoporosis causes bones to become brittle and more susceptible to fracture. This disease occurs when bone is lost faster than the body can replace it. Osteoporosis tends to affect the bones of the spine, wrist, and hip more often than any other bones in the body. A healthcare provider can diagnose this disease using a bone mineral density test known as dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA scan). This test can also predict your likelihood of fractures and determine your rate of bone loss, among other things.
