Osteoporosis and Spine

Osteoporosis is a systemic disease widely characterized by low bone mass and micro-architectural degradation of bone tissue, causing an elevated risk of fracture.It affects everyone in the long run and has become a part of normal aging. However some people develop osteoporosis at an earlier stage in their life as a result of various illnesses or due to hormone deficiency states. Approximately 1.5 million people suffer from a osteoporosis fracture every year and an estimated 700,000 of them experiences spinal fracture. In Europe, the disability due to osteoporosis is much greater than that caused by cancers.

The use of biomarkers facilitates the early diagnosis of osteoporosis .Ultrasound, Dual X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) and Quantitative Computed Tomography (QCT) are other commonly used diagnostic tools. Treatment ofosteoporosis is cost-effective irrespective of age and therapies with proven quick efficacy may offer significant value to healthcare providers and patients.
