Osteoporosis literally means “porous bones” and it is a disease that is characterized by a loss in bone mass and density, which leads to the increased risk of fractures. This disease commonly affects women that are past menopausal age, though it is increasingly affecting men. Treatments include medication, nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, massage, chiropractics, osteopathy and lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, exercising more and reducing the intake of alcohol.
