Are You Standing Tall? Osteoporosis Canada launches a new campaign.

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become thin and weak, leading to an increased risk of a fragility fracture. The most common sites for broken bones caused by osteoporosis are the wrist, hip, shoulder and spine. Osteoporosis Canada has recently launched the Stand Tall Canada campaign to raise awareness of the fact that height loss can be an indicator of a spine fracture and to encourage people who have lost height to see their doctor.  For more information go to the Osteoporosis website listed below.
