What Does Osteoporosis Look Like?
You've probably seen elderly women with osteoporosis who are
(since their spine has been compressed), or who have what's called a
(because the bone loss is causing them to hunch over).
That sets the visual stage and gives you a mental picture of osteoporosis.
We get asked a lot for osteoporosis pictures, and they're important because
they show you what osteoporosis looks like, inside the body and out.
A picture of osteoporosis of a
cross-section of a brittle bone
compared to a healthy bone will show how hollowed out and porous it is.
A picture of osteoporosis of a woman's back will demonstrate how the disease leads people to
hunch over and 'shrinks' their spine vertically. These pictures of osteoporosis are very vivid.
We've gathered some links to sites that have useful osteoporosis pictures.
We'll warn you ahead of time that some of these osteoporosis images may be upsetting. There's nothing graphic here, but the pictures on osteoporosis are a good reminder of how
we must take steps to prevent osteoporosis.
