What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a degenerative condition that causes bones to weaken and become brittle. Its name literally translates to “porous bone.” As the condition progresses, the risk of bone fractures increases, particularly fractures in the spine, hip, and wrist. The most common symptoms of osteoporosis include gradually slumping posture, loss of height, and an increased incidence of bone fractures.
How is osteoporosis treated?
Osteoporosis cannot be reversed. However, there are several steps that can be taken to help manage symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. The endocrinologists at Tufts Medical Center Community Care walk patients through every step of the osteoporosis treatment process and provide personalized guidance on how to reduce symptoms, improve bone health, and protect against fractures.
