Osteoporosis Care at Sentara HealthcareOsteoporosis is a debilitating disease in which bones become brittle and can break. One out of every two postmenopausal women over 50 will have a bone fracture caused by osteoporosis.

The risks for having this condition and suffering the loss of activity it brings are greater than the risk for heart disease, breast cancer or stroke. Women account for 80 percent of the 28 million
people who have osteoporosis and low bone mass (osteopenia).
