WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS?
Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, which can lead to increased risk of fracture. Known as the “silent thief”, bone deterioration can occur over a number of years without presenting any symptoms. Unfortunately, if detected at the time of a break, the disease is already fairly advanced. The most common fractures associated with osteoporosis are in the hip, spine, wrist, and shoulder. Today, no single cause for osteoporosis has been identified.
Osteoporosis Canada, a registered charity, is the only national organization serving people who have, or are at risk for, osteoporosis. We work to educate, empower and support individuals and communities in the risk-reduction and treatment of osteoporosis. But we can’t do it alone.Donate Now
