Bones are constantly changing throughout our lives. Osteoporosis is caused by lost bone mass or density. When we’re young, our bodies make new bone faster than they break down old bone. Our bone mass increases until we are reach our early 20s. As we age, we then lose bone mass faster than we create it. People who attain good bone mass during youth are less likely to have problems later on.
Osteoporosis occurs when too much bone mass is lost and bones become thin and brittle and more susceptible to fracture. If you did not attain sufficient bone mass during your younger years, you are more likely to develop osteoporosis. During the early stages of bone loss, there may not be any symptoms. Once bones are weakened by osteoporosis, the symptoms may include:
- Back pain from fracture or collapsed vertebra
- Lost height over time
- A bent or stooped posture
- Bone fracture that occurs too easily
Georgia Center for Female Health may recommend therapeutic exercise, nutrition supplementation and prescription medication management for osteoporosis.
