Osteoporosis and Spine Fractures

Simply to put the age numbers are frightening in the incidence of spine fracture due to osteoporosis. The recent researches statistically report that 50 years old women are at 16% of lifetime risk whereas the same aged man has 5% of lifetime risk of the osteoporotic spine. Moreover, a 65 years aged woman with spine fracture has the probability of one in fourth for successive fractures over 5 years. All such statistical data clearly demonstrate that age plays a predominant role in the spine fractures.
