The Effects of Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis can cause bones to break, so it is very important to get this diagnosis because it could be detrimental. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains when the hip bone has more porous areas, it means the bone is not as strong, so it can become fragile and eventually can break up and people can develop fractures.

If the injury is not treated, people can have a hip fracture, that can be debilitating, they can suffer with pain and that can impact their mobility.
