Summary

Osteoporosis is a silent but crippling disease process that can have devastating consequences for the successful aging of most women and many men. This book will raise awareness and inform health professionals about this often preventable and treatable disease. Written by a team of authors from medicine, nursing, nutrition, exercise physiology, and physical therapy, the book provides an overview of the disease process--discussing its epidemiology, strategies for prevention and treatment, as well as the clinical implications of osteoporosis across disciplines.
