A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur because of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by weakening of bones due to loss of bone density and mass. It is a progressive condition that can cause bones to fracture under mild stress. Osteoporosis commonly occurs in women over the age of 50 and is influenced by certain genetic and environmental factors.
