Osteoporosis

You can more easily get bone fractures if you have osteoporosis and a weaker skeleton. The most common are leg fractures in the wrists, hips, vertebrae or upper arms. Osteoporosis is because the balance between the breakdown and build-up of bones in the body is disrupted, so that more bones are broken down than what is being rebuilt. You can reduce the risk of osteoporosis by being physically active and not smoking.
