Osteoporosis is a silent disease – it typically doesn’t cause any noticeable symptoms until a fracture occurs. As a result, many people are living with the condition without even knowing it. However, some subtle signs to watch out for include back pain, loss of height over time and a stooped posture, as well as a fracture from a minor injury. If you’re experiencing these symptoms – or are concerned about your risk for osteoporosis, the physicians at Northtowns Orthopedics can help.
