Osteoporosis & Spinal Fractures |

Osteoporosis means that the bone is a little more brittle and weaker, affirms Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute.
With a digital imaging, the specialist describes a healthy bone is tight. In the case of osteoporosis, the bone has more space than it originally had. Fractures can happen more frequently.
The doctor says the bone has been fed by the hormones. When the bone does not receive enough estrogen, it starts to lose strength and it becomes more brittle, he explains.
