Osteoporosis-related fractures are quite painful and slow to heal. And, in some extreme, rather unfortunate cases, these fractures can lead to permanently weak bones and joints. The medicines used in the treatment of osteoporosis are linked to grave pain, allergic reactions and stomach problems. The only way one can prevent it is by following an active and healthy lifestyle and dietary routine. Dr R.K. Sharma, Senior Consultant Orthopedics & Joint Replacement Surgeon, Indraprastha Apollo Hospital helps us in decoding the basics of osteoporosis and how you can prevent it. *Images courtesy: © Thinkstock photos/ Getty Images
