Osteoporosis(ah-stee-oh-po-ro-sis)**
        
 
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to weaken. This can lead to rounded shoulders, loss of height and increases the risk of fractures. OP is painless, but if a fracture occurs it can be very painful. This is a serious health problem in the United States affecting about 28 million people, 80% of people with OP are women. This is the culprit cause of bone fractures in post menopausal women.
