Bone Diseases: Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis affects the architecture of the bone. The name means porous bone, explains Dr. Luis Rodriguez, Primary Care Sports Medicine Physician with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute.
The specialist also says osteoporosis affects the architecture within someone’s bone and makes it weaker.
The bone will start losing bone mass as people age. If that gets to a certain point, it decreases and it increases the risk of fracture, he affirms.
