Osteoarthritis of the Spine



Osteoporosis most commonly occurs in older women, and is a result of the loss of bone density, which weakens normal bone. Osteoporosis typically occurs in the spine and hips. The loss of bone strength, particularly in the elderly, can lead to spine fractures following minimal trauma. These fractures can be very painful and often heal in a position that leads to increasing curvature of the spine (kyphosis).
