Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones lose strength, making you more likely to break a bone than the average adult.

Living with osteoporosis means you are at higher risk of breaking a bone. But not everyone with osteoporosis goes on to break a bone. It’s not inevitable, and we’re here to help you live well with osteoporosis.

A broken bone and a fracture are the same thing. As bones lose strength, they can break after a minor bump or fall. You may hear or read these described as fragility fractures.
