Osteoporosis is a disease which revolves around the density of the bones in our bodies. Bones should be healthy and dense, however in individuals who have osteoporosis, their bones are more fragile and less dense, and due to this have a higher risk of fractures. Many individuals often do not realize that they may have osteoporosis as you cannot feel whether or not your bones are weakening until bones are broken, which is typically the first sign of osteoporosis.

Symptoms of Osteoporosis
