Osteoporosis (OP) is a disease where increased bone weakness increases the risk of a broken bone. OP may be due to lower-than-normal maximum bone mass and greater-than-normal bone loss. It is the most common reason for a broken bone among the elderly. Bones that commonly break include the vertebrae in the spine, the bones of the forearm, and the hip.
