Hello everyone, I am Dr Sanjay Bansal, I am orthopaedic surgeon my fields of interest is joint replacement arthroscopic surgery. Today we will talk about a very common disease known as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease in which our bones become brutal and they are prone to fracture because the bone density decreases. Now the patients generally come with mild pain, weakness and when we do X-Ray’s, we see that there are fractures and it is most common in the spine. There are multiples spine fractures and a patient of osteoporosis even if he is walking, he gets even a jerk, and the bone gets fractures. It is a very dangerous disease because it only appears, the symptoms only appear when there is a fracture and there is a mild pain. It can be treated, there is a various test like the blood test, DEXA scan and some X-Ray’s, which can diagnose it and one its diagnose there are some medicines which can be given in the form of oral and injectable. If you want to prevent osteoporosis kindly take care of your diet, do proper exercises and have a regular checkup with your doctor's. It is a very dangerous disease but can be easily prevented.
