What are the symptoms of osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a common degenerative condition that causes bones to become porous and weak – in fact, this condition’s name literally translates to “porous bone.” Some common signs of osteoporosis include:

  • Gradually slumping posture
  • Loss of height
  • Back pain as a result of weakened vertebrae
  • Easily broken bones

It’s a good idea to consult a physician if you begin to notice these symptoms, especially if you are a woman who has already experienced menopause or has ever taken corticosteroids for an extended period of time.

What does osteoporosis treatment involve?

Osteoporosis cannot be cured, but there are several treatments that can help slow the progression of this disease and improve strength and mobility. Many patients benefit from medications that improve bone density or help build new bone. Self-care measures like quitting smoking and cutting back on alcoholic beverages may also be beneficial.
