Osteoporosis is a debilitating condition that causes changes in your bone structure, making them weak and brittle. Reports suggest that about 54 million Americans suffer from this condition that puts them at high risk for broken bones. Often, the gradual weakening of bones is part of the aging process. Falls are a serious concern for older people as a high percentage of seniors who have this condition are prone to falls. It is estimated that more than 20 million seniors above the age of 65 years visit the emergency room each year with around a third of the visits mainly related to injuries (many of which are sustained in their homes).
