Common Causes of Spine Pain

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more prone to fractures and bone breakage. The pain and discomfort brought on by osteoporosis can impair a person's ability to walk unassisted, may cause a loss in height, prolonged disability or deformity. Because osteoporosis does not have any clear symptoms, it's crucial persons over the age of 50 receive a bone density scan to uncover the disease in its infancy.
