Causes of Osteoporosis
Aging increases the risks of developing osteoporosis, but also it can be genetic as well as for women after menopause.
Dr. Luis Rodriguez, Primary Care Sports Medicine Physician with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, explains environmental factors such as smoking can increase risks too.
The expert affirms the symptoms of osteoporosis may not come until the patient has a fracture. 1/3 of the spinal fractures may not have any symptoms at all until later someone starts to develop some back pain.
