What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones lose their strength and are more likely to break, usually following a minor bump or fall. The bones most commonly broken as a result of osteoporosis are the wrist, hip and spine. Osteoporosis can sometimes have other affects on those with the condition, such as a change in body shape and long-term pain.
