Nowadays, in the EU one person experiences an osteoporotic fracture every 30 seconds and with the current demographic shift the incidence is expected to double in few decades. In fact, osteoporosis is a very common bone disease appearing more frequently with aging, but it can occur also at younger age. It occurs when the body loses too much bone, as a result bones become weak and brittle: so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses can cause a fracture. Osteoporotic bone breaks are most likely to occur in the hip, spine or wrist, but other bones can also break. Breaking a bone causes permanent pain and, when osteoporosis affects vertebrae, it can lead to a stooped or hunched posture.
