Osteoporosis is one of the major causes for the fracture among aged and adult population. Osteoporosis causes bone to become porous and so brittle that even mild alteration in posture may lead to fracture. Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder which affects the more than 10 million Americans. Osteoporotic fractures are more often reported in women i.e. 40% to 50% and 13% in men. However other study reported that the occurrence of fracture was similar in men and women. In primary osteoporosis, post-menopausal osteoporosis generally develops after menopause because of drop in estrogen level. Senile osteoporosis generally occurs at the age of 70 years in which thinning of bone occurred. Senile osteoporosis is degenerative osteoporosis because of wear and tear on the bones. Secondary osteoporosis is most common as it is caused by certain medical condition or treatment, which affects the bone mass and cause bone loss.
