From our family to yours, thank you for your time in helping our dad back to health.
The most common bone disease is osteoporosis. With osteoporosis, our bones become weak and are more likely to break and usually occur in the wrist, spine and hip. Every day, our body breaks down old bone and puts new bone in its place. AS we get older, our bodies break down more bone than what we replace. Because this happens over long periods of time and doesn't hurt, many of us aren't aware of our weak bone status and the first sign of osteoporosis is a break.
