May is Osteoporosis Awareness month. Osteoporosis causes decreased bone density or strength, which leads in an increased risk in fractures. Although osteoporosis is more common in women, men can have osteoporosis as well. Routine screening is recommended for at risk patients. Keeping your bones healthy throughout life is essential.
