World Osteoporosis Day observed across the globe
On October 20, the World Osteoporosis Day was observed across the globe to raise awareness and resources to promote better bone health by mitigating the risk of fracture and side effects from treatment.

International Osteoporosis Foundation (IFO) launched a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness about osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases with activities in over 90 countries.

The observance launched by IFO has been  capturing the  public interest in musculoskeletal health to live longer and ensure a future free of the pain and suffering caused by osteoporotic fractures, said Peter Ebeling, IOF Board Member

In medical parlance, osteoporosisis a condition making bones weak and brittle. Cmmon people are needed to be aware about its diagnosis, prevention and treatment.  Some fractures include those caused by spine damage since it goes undiagnosed and untreated because of lack of awareness. The osteoporosisis caused fractures are also called the fragility fractures.

Some stretches and limbering exercises that improve joint, muscle and bone health conditions should be done regularly. If are not health conscious, osteoporosis can cause loss of height, bumped back and severe nagging back pain. 

It is advocated that the exercises, timely diagnosis and treatment can reduce the risk of osteoporosis from getting worse and mitigate the burden of fragility fractures which are becoming common after the age of 50.

At the personal level, it is important to include calcium nutrients in diet and do exercises to keep bones healthy and strong.
