What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bone fragility at high risk of fracture and deformation of vertebral bodies, changing the function of the spine. Its not treatment or prevention, may produce a progression of osteoporosis in a silent, painless, often resulting in fracture of the hip, spine and wrist fractures vertebral These involve a deformity of the spine resulting in a decrease of height and increased thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis; Women develop osteoporosis, four times more often than men. This bone loss is due to the ovaries produce less estrogen (female hormone characteristically, which plays an important role in maintaining bone density). Osteoporosis leads to 1.3 million fractures a year, one in three women whose age exceeds 50 years, will suffer a vertebral fracture, causing the column to collapse; Etiology of Osteoporosis: etiology of osteoporosis can be Idiopathic (medication, hormonal disturbances, post-surgical and endocrine dysfunction); Postmenopausal: (Due to a decline in estrogen effect) senile and senile: (Due to the aging process, hormonal decline and dietary changes), giving as symptoms, bone pain, deformation and shortening, reduced mobility limitationn the movement and spontaneous fractures. People at risk: Some factors increase the risk of developing osteoporosis: · Menopause. · Persons with reduced mobility inactivity. · Consumers snuff. · People with a family history of this disease. · Other Osteoporosis is a very common disease in the population, affecting approximately 28 million people. Treatment: osteoporosis currently treated with hormone replacement therapy with estrogen fracture prevention and treatment orthotic (Bodyostec), we provide a support and stabilization of the spine, as well as limiting their mobility.
