8 Facts To Know About Osteoporosis


2. Symptoms

There are several symptoms associated with osteoporosis and the symptoms you may encounter typically depends on your age and health status. For example, older men are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis-related back pain, which emerges when the condition leads to a fractured or collapsed vertebra in the spine.

Women, meanwhile, tend to be more likely to sustain wrist or hip injuries associated with osteoporosis. They may also notice that, as a result of osteoporosis impacting their spine and hips, they begin to stoop over and lose height. Of course, the central symptom of osteoporosis is simply joint pain — should it become intense enough, individuals should schedule an appointment to discuss the matter with their family doctor right away.
